You know, I never got the hatred of Trixie. Or the moral of Boast Busters. She was a showmare. An actress. It was all an act.

Really, they should have lynched Snips and Snails. They're like rabid fanboys at comic conventions. You know, Trekkies.

Twilight is my favorite poni, but she's needed a good knock-down since season 2.

Hey folks, quick semi-threadjack here but can you help me understand the whole adults watching MLP for me? I am genuinely curious and this isn't a hater post but a legitimate question. I'm not the TFer that shows up in discussion threads just to say "your interests are stupid and you should feel bad."

I've seen a number of articles about it but I wanted to hear it (forgive me for this) from the horses mouth. So what gives? My daughters (ages 5 and 7) love it but I can't see anything extraordinary necessarily.

TeddyBallGame: can you help me understand the whole adults watching MLP for me?


1) It's a fun, light-hearted show to watch with some subtle adult-level humor thrown in to the mix.
 
2) It's bright and colorful with lots of motion, which works well for those that enjoy ingesting certain chemical substances. 
 
3) It drives a large segment of society up the friggen' wall, which is fun in and of itself.

In cartoon land, it's not the best thing that's ever been published.

However, in 2012 it's easily one of best cartoons on television. Good animation, solid stories, talented cast members, and genuine humor. It's not bitter or ironic, it's just classic cartoon goofiness. To give you an example, today's episode will focus on Tara Stong and Kathleen Barr.

Tara Strong is Hello Kitty, Bat Girl, Bubbles, Timmy Turner, Harley Quinn in the games, and Twilight Sparkle. Most people under 35 grew up with her.

Kathleen Barr's resume is equally impressive. However, off hand I can only recall she was Dot Matrix on ReBoot. She's been in a metric farkton of other good stuff as well. You'd know her to hear her. She's also Trixie. 90% of Trixie's popularity is Barr's acting.


Two talented actors on the same show going head to head is great synergy. It's just like movies. Al Pachino and Robert DiNero in HEAT, for example.

Because it wasn't a Noo Yawk accent. It was a... *cough*... Manehattan accent.

I would have given this "Cool Baker" company respect if they had licensed the Pat Benetar song "Heartbreaker" for use in their commercial.

Rarities floor is pristine. Besides, the five second rule doesn't count in emergencies.

Actually that was kind of an odd joke for the show; maybe the writers are fans of the Friendship is Witchcraft series.

I had to explain Derpygate to someone yesterday.

After about 20 minutes of explaining they just looked at me and said "Yep. Mad... all of you are mad. It's not a bad mad, but you're one and all mad as a hatter"

/I could not argue.

Last week's show was an average CMC episode, but it did still come up with some good stuff...

the A-Team homage, sentient brain sucked soda cup, emergency edible boots, VEGGIE SALAD!, Why does life have to be so ironic?...
