    "She's actually embraced it."

    "Yessss"

    "She's even made a music video that shouted the bronies out"

    "She's a troll. She's a troll too" *shifty eyes*

    Guess I'll be one of the first bronies to reply to this reaction.

    As far as I can tell, they did not show an episode but only the intro, which doesn't give a demonstration of why the non-targeted audience enjoy it so much. The show is filled with subtle jokes and references that adults could understand (like how Shrek incorporated such additions without going too far), as well as slapstick comedy and scenarios that older cartoons used. Even the latest episode, Baby Cakes, makes references to Steven Wright jokes and the Exorcist, but throws them into an entertaining 22 minute episode, complete with a moral, compromises, and friendship like the episodes before it would do.

    I'd say, for those on the fence or on the opposite side of the fence, ignore the prior generation of ponies (since that is what I think the teens in the video were doing the comparison with), and watch a couple episodes of this generation to make an actual judgement. I'd recommend Ticket Master (just to get an idea about each pony's personalities), then onto some of the more entertaining episodes like Party of One and Lesson Zero.

    Whil I certainly agree that there's a difference between judging a book and judging its cover, it's also the Achille's heel of all bronies: the old stuff is considered "gender-targetted crap", and hence is both weird and unacceptable to the demographic. The negative connotation is all required for dismissal at this point, since a large part of TV-watchers are far less dismissive or forgiving as a brony probably appears to be.

    I'm not going to convince ANYONE to watch or like it, since I'm learning all the faster that many things in life are enjoyable by an acquired taste to me, and it's very narrow-minded for me to believe others will like things I like, too.

    That being said, I rarely watch the episodes anymore, since I have other more pressing things to do with my life than to absorb messages of friendship and love, and I go over my tracks to make sure no one's on my tail over bronies, either, because of the negative connotation and since I'm not the kind of person who likes labels.

    One can enjoy this generation of ponies, yet hate everything that came before it. Most bronies are like that from what I've seen.

    I just watched that and learned about the trend (although we see these everyday on the temp).

    Permit me to doubt full grown man watch the show regularly.
    I used to be really fond of sailor moon when i was a teenager but I don't think someone my age (im 31) would watch something like this.
