I know this an unpopular opinion, and I know it's just a little girls show, but here is my reason why I disagree with people saying it's better than other shows rated TV-Y. Honestly it's no different than the typical little kid shows on Nick Jr. Think About it. The characters are all 1D. Pretty much all of them can be summed up in one word. [Smart, shy, tomboy, ect.] Just like any other badly made Nick Jr. show, the characters are flat and have been done before. The show structure is repetitive; there's always a "moral" or "what I've learned today" at the end. You always know how the story is going to wrap up. There's no surprises or complicated story. The conflict feels pointless because you all know how it's gonna go out. Almost all of the stories and plots have been done before by, yup, other children shows. The humor seems to pretty much appeal to little kids under the age of 6. And please, do not give me that "they make adult jokes, so it's not just for little girls!!" I've seen plenty of children's cartoons that did sneak in adult jokes, and way better than this shitty show did. That doesn't mean those shows and this show is for adults too just because of some jokes. But the thing is..the show is good. For little kids. The characters are flat and boring because these kind of characters are easy for little kids to identify. The humor is cheesy and unfunny to older people because it's little kid humor. The story is structured and repetitive because that is what appeals to little children. From the toys, the merchandise, the movies, it all makes sense. MLP:Fi M is a franchise that is just one big cliche in children's entertainment; it checks off all the cliches of one and does pretty much nothing new, which makes it shitty. But for older people. Older people who aren't strange. :) Those are my thoughts. Thanks for reading! But seriously.. "Cutie mark"? Goddamnit. And the review is flagged. And I thought bronies could at least accept opinions.
