Obviously, the new My Little Pony television show has gained some controversy recently. It has derailed quite a few threads, so I took the liberty to make a thread about it here.
I have no idea why so many people like this show, it is an alright show, I guess, for children, but that's about it. It is no more interesting and outstanding than any other children's show, for example Dora the Explorer.
It's just as educative and child-oriented as MLP, but I don't see there being a whole community of adult viewers, dubbing male viewers of the show "Explorbros", or even having whole community-made websites about it!
My point is: It's just a children's show! Why does everyone love it, even going so far to say that their life wouldn't be complete without the show?
