Everyone around me is turning into a Brony.

BUT I AM RESISTING. YOU CAN NEVER CONVERT ME TO THE DARK (DORK?) SIDE!!!!

I will never succumb to the evil that is MLP.
I like to go down to the playground and watch the kids run and jump and scream, because they don't know I'm only using blanks.

Modern anime is a stagnant cesspool of regurgitated ideas.

I watched the first episode. It was generally entertaining.
Get a little closer let it fold
Cut open my sternum and pull
My little ribs around you

I've been watching Parking Wars.  Being in Philly, it always reminds me of Faye.

Ugh. I'm so fucking gun shy about starting new sci-fi series.

"Oops, sorry. It wasn't popular enough, so... CANCELED. Oh, you liked it? Ah well."

And yes, I realize I may be contributing to that outcome by not watching, but whatever.

Unless you had a nelson's box on your tv or there was some way they could measure whether you were watching or not, then no.

Don't listen to her! Get away while you ca  PINKYPIE 4EVER!
FUCK PINKYPIE THAT ADHD SPEED-ADDICTED WHORE! FLUTTERSHY AND TWILIGHT FOREVER BITCHES! *beats self to death with sledgehammer*


Because I have heard the excuse of "Well, how can you judge something if you've never seen it?", I have started watching My Little Pony: Friendship is magic.

It certainly is better than the shit they put out in the 80s. And it is a good children's program, and if I had kids I'd encourage them to watch it.  But that's the thing. It's written for CHILDREN. So while the characters are complex sterotypical and somewhat entertaining the whole thing feels dumbed down. In the week I've taken on the dare to watch as much MLP as I can handle before shooting myself, I have only watched 3.5 episodes.

These reviews will have spoilers, if you care.

The First two episodes:
We get introduced to the main character Twilight, a smart introverted bookworm, and about the only sane character on the show, as she's constantly like "What the fuck is wrong with all of you?" which would be my reaction if I landed in Ponyville. And she's trying to warn everyone that the end is nigh, and the evil pony shall come from the moon and rule the world. Of course no one listens, and because of her gloom&doom prophecy she gets shipped to the podunk town of Ponyville.

There she makes friends: Applejack, a sterotypical southern redneck type that farms; Rainbow Dash, a selfish tomboyish lesbo; Pinkie pie, the ADHD hyperactive crazy bitch on speed; Rarity, a stuck-up so-cal bimbo who only cares about fashion and looks (a pony Faye); and Fluttershy, a shy timid and quiet girl who loves animals. Most of these characters are sterotypical, annoying, and not the kind of people I'd hang with.

And of course the prediction comes true, the evil pony escapes from the moon, and the new friends must save the day. And this is where the show beats you over the head with that mushy shit. They save the day USING FRIENDSHIP!!! Generosity, kindness, love, loyality, friendship, all are used to twart evil. Then they use the rainbow of love to defeat evil. Yay, or something.

And then the villian says sorry and is forgiven. I mean, really? Can I not have a TV program where they use the powet of friendship and love to defeat evil?


I was told that this theme does not continue with the series, so I watched more.
Episode 2 review, abridged:
Our main character gets two tickets to some gala of sorts. Every one of her friends wants to go, so they try to bribe her, be nice to her, and do anything to coerce her to give up her tickets. So good so far?

So why was the ending so fucking predictable? I knew what was going to happen before the episode was 5 minutes in!!!

Twilight decides to send the tickets back, saying that if her friends can't go, she won't go either. How sweet (BARF!). Predictably, she gets a message back with tickets for ALL of her friends. Wow, that was like the most uncliche ending EVER!!!!!111one

If the series is only going to be lovey dovey and predictable happy endings where friendship conquers all, I am seriously disappoint.

TL;DR: Good children's program. Dumbed down. Predicably happy endings where love and frienship triumphs over evil, nothing bad ever happens permanatly.
I like to go down to the playground and watch the kids run and jump and scream, because they don't know I'm only using blanks.

Modern anime is a stagnant cesspool of regurgitated ideas.

The show needs a jacked up pony modeled after me that wears alpina shield sunglasses (in white just like the late machoman)

His name would be Thundercock.

Yeah, it really makes me not want to watch anything unless it has an actor I like or a concept I'm super-curious about.  And not just sci-fi.  Anything really.

Yup... yup. Best bet is to wait for something that's equally loved by critics and the masses, with a confirmed second season.

I didn't start watching Lost until the second season.

I've never actually seen the first.

Pretty weird, huh?

Honestly, I don't even like watching shows on a weekly basis. I'd rather wait for the season to end and then burn through it whenever the mood takes me.

Watch a 10-episode season w/ 1-hr eps.  Waste 10 hours + time waiting for the show to start and having a 1-hour show take up a specific block of your day.

vs.

Watch a 10-episode season at around 45 min a piece since there's no commericals.  Now it's about 7.5 hours.  Squeeze it in whenever the hell you want so you don't have to set aside a particular time of day.  Fast-forward if that shit gets boring.  Jump ahead and see if it gets better or is even worth your time.


I remember the first season of Lost being, like, the best one.  Probably because I thought my questions would actually get answered.  Derp.

Moon Bloodgood's in it.  This puppy's as good as canceled.

D: Some later episodes are really funny.  I really loved the first 2 parter personally.  If you couldn't get into it, I'm not sure you would though.

I've been watching Wisecrack on Netflix streaming.  Just a bunch of LGBT comics.  Most of them were funny, too.

I need to watch Avatar as I've actually never seen it.

I've watched up to 8 MLP episodes. They get better, but only so much. Some episodes are boring, some are somewhat entertaining, but none of them are mindblowing.

I'd say the hype is overblown. And I can't see why everyone is a fan of Rainbow Dash. She's selfish and annoying.
I like to go down to the playground and watch the kids run and jump and scream, because they don't know I'm only using blanks.

Star Trek:TNG

Netflix demands I watch the whole series till my eyes bleed.
