I cruised by this thread and i just had to jump in. As a male fan of the My Little Pony: FiM show, i would like to explain to you why I like the show,
how i came to like the show, and why i will watch the 3rd season of the show and be excited about it this coming year.
Lauren Faust is the creator of MLP. Also the creator of Power Puff Girls. And when i was growing up (although i am a male), PPG was a show i really
liked to watch, it had the same animation style as Dexters Laboratory (awesome cartoon).
The show speaks to different levels of intelligence. There is the portion of the show that the 7 year olds (or whatever) see. And then there are
underlying adult themes and jokes hidden within the show that only adults would understand. Much like going back and watching a show you haven't seen
since your childhood and seeing and understanding certain parts of the show more.
I like the show because it has well made music, animation, characters personalities, and makes me laugh. And there is something to learn from each
episode of it, things that could be applied to real life.
I really don't care if you think im weird for liking a girls show, i think people are idiotic for watching football and jersey shore.
Yes there are some weirdos (there always are in almost any fanbase). But they are minimal in comparison to just the regular guys like me that watch
it. Its not your average girly show that is completely mind numbing. It's actually interesting to watch. My buddy got me into watching it because he
has a four year old daughter and SHE was watching it on TV. He was sitting there playing with her and realized he had sit there with her watching the
show for like 3 hours. He enjoyed it. And it took him 4 months to convince me to watch it, and i ended up liking it a whole lot too.
Give it a chance, No one has any right to judge anyone else over the TV shows that they watch. And its stupid to judge people because of that.
