    The reason they won't leave you alone is that majority of the fanbase didn't like the first episode they saw, and they know that if you saw a few more episodes, you'd probably get hooked.

    And honestly, if the episode you saw was the very first one, I can see why it wouldn't hook you. Episode 1 was probably the one of the worst episode in the entire series, alongside the Dave Polsky episodes (15 and 21). Trust me, this is one series where if you're judging it on just one episode, you're judging it WAY too soon. For me, it took until episode 7 to realize that I ACTUALLY wanted to watch the show.
    Whoa, whoa, whoa. You're actually hopping on "Over A Barrel"? I thought that was actually pretty well done.

    Feeling Pinkie Keen I definitely could have done without, though. It was just kind of asking for trouble.

    But yeah, most will tell you you should probably watch a -couple- of episodes. What REALLY irks me are the people who refuse to even watch it at all.

    Interesting. Feeling Pinkie Keen and Over a Barrel are awesome episodes in my opinion. If you ignore the alleged religious resonance (it was never intended), FPK is hilarious.

    Over a Barrel was obnoxious because in the end, you can't really tell what the HELL the message was supposed to be. I won't deny that it had some hilarious moments, but when you get down to it's purpose as an episode, it didn't really hold any value as kids show material. And let's face it - if we want this show to keep going, we want it to have value as a kids show.

    Of course everyone says Hasbro would have to be stupid to cancel the show at this point, but let's face it, it was also extremely stupid of them to only release the blind-bag ponies in Europe and limit America to the shitty brushables. Honestly I wouldn't put any stupidity past them.

    I have no idea what this means, but feel a certain self-satisfied smugness regardless.

    Blind bag ponies: the Europe-only pony toys which are 99% show accurate and extremely desirable.

    Brushables: The bullshit that we Americans get. These toys are about 2% show accurate, and cost nearly twice as much as the blind bags.

    I won't lie, I watch Phineas and Ferb with my daughter and like it. Something tells me if Dr. Doofenshmirtz were after those adorable pony's instead of the semi adorable nighttime obsessed pony, the show would get a huge ratings bump! Crossover!

    I LOL'ed at Jimmy Hoffa's post. Good show. Something about seeing the name of ponies plus "shit tier" makes me crack up.

    I really think pony fans should be getting behind The Aquabats Super Show as well, since it's also coming to The Hub.

    Bonus points if they collab'd together in some of the Hub promos/commercials.

    But what if I don't really like Fallout 3? Will that matter?

    View this video for the Fallout 3: Equestria. You cannot lie that the trailer/video is 20% cooler now, your argument will be invalid if so. Though I did not care much for that fanfic anyway, but might read it for fact I can. Not had a lot of time on my hands to do so, nor come here to post.

    Link to the video, doubt it is original source one but it works: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_-8UactLe4Q&feature=related

    Drake And Josh was so much better, I felt more awkward watching the one episode of iCarly I've seen than I ever felt awkward watching My Little Pony.

    Not trying to change your mind, yo. I'm indifferent to the matter. You drop a lot of comments here and there, though, so I was just sayin'.
