    Sounds good, not really busy atm anyhow :p

    So would you recommend giving SU a shot as well? (might as well add to my collection :p)

    Hmmm I am curious now, whenever I have seen snippets on POP, I have always found them boring lol, and it seemed very much like a generic kids show.
    I think its the human characters that put me off.

    To be honest, I do understand how you feel, as it does seem to be like a genneric kids show.
    There are moments, however, that I did actually laugh at, like this clip:

    I would say more "generic kids show" than MLP, sure (though I get the impression with S2 they knew they had a few of the equivalent of Bronies following ;)). But it's kind of like.. once you've got one foot in kids shows via MLP already it's easier to see past it to the ageless humour and charm it has. And much like MLP the characters are very well defined.

    And hey, it has Penny Ling... Fluttershy in panda form :3
    Or Zoe, Rarity in Twilight Sparkle coloured voice-of-Celestia dog form (whilst Rara herself voices Pepper)

    aw I got all excited and thought LPS had started again when I saw that this thread had posts :(
    heh darn those humans

    I like it because it has much of the same voice talent and humour as MLP (ALL the puns :p) as well as similar music and don't mind its girliness. The stories lack epic pony ofc and the human-centric stories, especially in the premieres and finales, can be a bit flat (not the greatness that is the S1 finale) but apart from that I think they're fairly ponyish fun too.

    So I decided to finally start watching the show and have watched the first 2 episodes...and I have to say I really enjoyed it and found it really funny so I will carry on watching all the episodes xD. Glad my initial concerns about the show I posted above were unfounded.

    Only downside is can't get Blythe being Rainbow Dash out of my head lol.

    The Pets all seem really cute and funny so far Zoe is my favourite.

    Binge watched this series recently, straight through to the end of season 3. I think it's adorable but like others I do see it's flaws. Problems are resolved a little too easy and not even in a creative way, its a little like 90's cartoon shows in its style of setting these problems up and solving them. The texting talk can get a bit annoying, the biscuits are one dimensional and sometimes just around too much for comfort, there's also the sore thumb that Blythe is the only character who goes through a frequent wardrobe change. Yes, I know it suits her character and it started out a refreshing detail but by season 3 it just got too noticeable. One other thing that bothered me, and it's a little thing, was by season 3 you got around 1 song per episode, that's 26 original/parody songs! I felt kinda sorry for Ingram. Hope he isn't doing it all alone.

    Other than that I loved the show. It was so adorable to watch Russel freak out while on a sugar rush

    They do have their moments, the "We're cuter than this" song was the highlight for me. I guess I just want to see more from them

    Yeah on both LPS and MLP they seemed to go through a phase of going completely nuts on songs. I've noticed it kinda stopped with MLP S5

    So I have finished watching series 1 (I would watch faster but I am binge watching Adventure time aswell at the moment) and I totally love this show, its just so funny and best of all the music (love how they do so many styles) and pop culture references.

    Gave this a watch last night (only up to ep 6 so far) and even though it's no MLP, I'm really liking it. I did think the first ep was a bit meh but I think that was because I was comparing everything to MLP. It didn't help that Blythe sounded exactly like RD right down to the screams, Vinnie sounds like Snails and the Biskit twins reminded me of Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon, but after I stopped comparing and just watched, it was pretty good :D

    Haha, yeah he just doesn't care. Also I like how they have a wardrobe full of laptops, don't they know they'll be outdated in a few months :p
