This is something i need to get off of my chest so i'm just gonna say this right now: I HATE My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic! Out of all the popular modern cartoons that i don't care of (horaciosi.deviantart.com/art/U…
), this is the one i dislike the most. Before i tell you why, i have to say this: If you're a Brony or you're just someone who likes the show without being a Brony (yes, those people do exist)......FINE. You found something you like and that's great. I even have a couple of friends both on DeviantArt and in real life (like Pink3Blu3Blizz and Ran-thewhitecat) who are Bronies and i'm perfectly fine by that. So no, just because i hate the show, doesn't mean i hate it's fans.
Anyway, here's why i don't like the show: If i can describe Friendship is Magic in one word it would be "Unoriginal". For a series that has such an overwhelming fanbase, to the point of even getting it's own fucking convention, this show has to be the most clichèd and unoriginal series i've seen since Naruto. Everything that this cartoon did i've seen it before in other shows. Plot lines, conflicts, characters, jokes (or rather the poor excuses for jokes), morals, EVERYTHING. The show literally does NOTHING new, NOTHING original that sets it appart from other cartoons of it's kind. It's like someone dared Lauren Faust to create the most clichèd cartoon in existance (that wasn't called Naruto. ZING!).
Well, i'm done with the series' unoriginality, but i still haven't said my other reason for why this show fails to me: The inconsistent writting.
Because this show has multiple writters that constantly keep coming back to only write certain episodes, the show cannot keep track with itself. Characters would establish some things in one episode and in another episode, they would say or do something that completely contradicts that statement (Ej: Spike in one episode said that his biggest fear is not serving Twilight, and in "Spike at your Service" he ABANDONS TWILIGHT to serve AppleJack). One episode would establish a specific character trait and a future episode would just forget that was ever establish and that same character would do something contradictory to that. I know what some of you are thinking: "Cartoons don't necessarily need to be consistent" and you're absolutely right.....here's the problem: This show is about characters developting, evolving as time passes by. These characters are supposed to get in a situation and learn about it to become a different and better person. If you insist on developing your characters, then CONSISENCY IS NOT OPTIONAL!!! If you're not consistent about your characters, then your show falls appart and fails big time, which this show did for me.
In conclusion, My Little Pony: FiM is an unoriginal, inconsistent, baddly written garbage of a show. I watched a couple of episodes of each season (which at the time of this Journal are 4) and i don't intent on ever watching another one.
