So, I took a look at this pony thing, and it's basically your generic program for little kids, aimed mainly at girls - but I can see small boys watching it. It's nothign special, the animation isn't scintillating, and the voice acting is of strictly average quality. There's no reason to think that this is some kind of awesome, subversive, amazingly cool program for adults to be watching.

In short, I just. Don't. Get it.

no no

I could've told you that without having to watch the show first. That's several minutes of my life I won't get back.

Hm. I suppose I'd've wasted them any way.

Still doesn't adequately explain it. I mean, Xanfor couldn't be considered a hipster. Neither, as far as I can tell are David A, RS2Thou, or Kryten "hipsters".

There's something else going on. Possibly something evil.

Tnuk, after rickrolling became popular did you spend a long time wondering why so many people seemed to love a terrible Rick Astley song from the 80s?

A hipster doesn't have to be a "hipster". The hipster culture is based around doing things that normally wouldn't be considered cool just to be ironic. This seems to be a pretty good example of that.

And, in all seriousness, I love Rick Astley and Never Gonna Give You Up. It is said that you can never truly be rickrolled if you actually like the song.

I enjoy hearing the song in certain contexts, and singing along with it (lord knows I've done so more times than I can count, publicly, at Scientology protests) but I still know it's a terrible song.

The cartoon has decent animations and I enjoy the style.  I've been watching it though because a friend is upset that his other friend was seriously watching it.  Also, it's a children's cartoon so my sister liked it.

Furthermore, I think the storytelling medium of the show, both from a writing perspective and an animation perspective are actually quite well achieved.

I think it's cool how the creator knows how popular it is with Adults and how big it has become on the web, she also talks to the fans on her DeviantArt page.

Neither, as far as I can tell are David A, RS2Thou, or Kryten "hipsters".

I don't even know what one is.

I like the episode with the parasprites; it's like a pony version of "The Trouble With Tribbles."

I find the animation to be pretty impressive. There's also some deep, anti-misogynist undertones weaved throughout the episodes in an attempt to brainwash little girls into overthrowing the paternal vestiges of American society. Plus, the ponies are sooooo cute!

Not to mention the realistic and believable characterization. Calling this show a generic program for little kids is tantamount to calling Animaniacs a generic slapstick cartoon.

Also, friendship is magic. love

I don't consider myself as a hipster, I just find the show entertaining and the art style to be interesting. One of my friends likes it as well, I was playing Warhammer and a few of us were talking about the show.
But then again I don't like anime, so I'm probably already weird when it comes to what I watch.

Because they kicked us out of the Powerpuff Girls thread, that's why.   cry

Because they were converted to Bronies.

I think this show speaks to my inner child. I adored ponies/horses when I was a little girl. The art is insanely cute and I cannot believe it was animated in a Flash type program (or so I'd heard. Please correct me if I'm wrong!)

It certainly looks like it's been animated in Flash. Maybe I'll give it another go when I lose the cynic ball I was handed earlier this week. Somebody suggest four or five episodes that will totally convert me, and I'll give it a fair shot.

Definitely start with the pilot two-parter. It gets even better as the series progresses, though, and has a very subtle thread of continuity that pays off if you watch it through from the very beginning.

Next season we're supposedly getting some villains, and moving a little closer to Lauren Faust's original vision, which was Sailor Moon with ponies. No word on when it will begin, unfortunately.

I like what I've seen of this show (ie very little) and what always has me hooked is the question of what would I look like as a pony?

I wasn't aware of that, having only been watching casually.  Care to elaborate?
