You know, given my awesome icon, and all the mashup music videos i've seen featuring it, and the comics and humor videos i've seen about it, i really ought to get around to watching at least a little My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. Of course if i end up liking it then i too can be part of that bizarrely large demographic of 18-35 males who are obsessed with that show.

...no, wait, i can't be a part of that demographic any more! I am no longer part of the demographic that everything gets targeted at! I'm too old!

...and i'm not sure if i'm more sad about feeling old, or more amused that it was My Little Pony that brought me to this realization :)

Okay coraa, it's your fault for bringing this to my attention, you need to make up for it by telling me where i can find episodes of the show ;)

Youtube! That's where I started watching it.

The first two episodes are enjoyable, but not really representative of the show as a whole. You can start there, but if you want a better idea of how the rest of the show goes, I'd start with a couple of non-pilot early episodes, then backtrack to the pilot and continue from there (skipping the two you already saw, of course). We did that starting with "Ticket Master" and "Dragonshy," and then going back and watching through from the beginning.

...Or you can start with the pilot, too, just realize that it's a bit different in tone from the rest of the series (more plotty, less funny).

I was trying to explain the internet reaction to the show to shelleycat, and found this linked off of TVTropes. Have you seen it before? Probably doesn't say anything you don't know, but it's cute (of course =)

YouTube is also where I've been watching it, fwiw. On Episode 9 so far! (I'm slow.)
