Dude, I started on the middle ground. I thought Bronies were okay and I had no problem with them. The show is so attractive (to me at any rate) because of the humor, pop culture references, the moral lessons, and what every Brony and I like, the well-written stories and character development. It is hands down one of the best cartoons made in the past few years.

Last year, at the time my cousin was graduating from college, I discovered BronyVid's "Ponymen" trailer through ICV2.com. (It's now known as Watchponies. And yes, it's a Watchmen parody.) I died laughing and I checked out some of his other videos and liked them.
I noticed Bronies in a lot of places, and I found found them funny (because then, I assumed it was a joke.) Then I noticed that they seriously enjoyed the show. I was fine with that.
During the last week of June, Rhett and Link did an episode of their show "Good Mythical Morning" about Bronies and it stirred my interest in the show. They talked about and showed  parts of Saberspark's "Ballad of the Brony." The next day, just for giggles, I decided to watch it. At the end, I realized I had been bit by the Brony bug. (And my timing was perfect, because Bronycon was right that weekend.) I started watching episodes in order (MISTAKE!) and the show officially won me over in the episode "Applebucking Season." I know (im)patiently wait for Season 3.

And rawrlolsauce, thanks for giving it a shot before criticizing without having watched an episode.

I saw this when walking to class today. It was still dark out, so it's kind of hard to see, but whatever.

I was on a real emotional high while watching (which is unusual for me). I thought it was great. It had a whopping 7 songs in the entire episode!

I have mixed feelings about Twilight being an alicorn. It would've been best to save it for the end of the series (as we're going to have a fourth season with 26 episodes) but I'll live with it.

We're going to have a LOOOOONG wait until the next season, so I'll be busy watching the old episodes, reading fanfics, watching "Double Rainboom" and possibly watching the spinoff. (Yes, spinoff. The premise sounds like a bad fanfic, but knowing this is by the same people, I'll give it a shot.)

To sum up, it was a great episode to end the season. (HOORAY FOR VINYL SCRATCH AND DERPY CAMEOS!)

I heard the spin off was cancled? or was that a rumor?

I haven't heard anything about the spinoff being cancelled, but if it is, I'll be happy. :)

Finally caught up on season 3 thanks to reading the finale spoiler in this thread (though apparently, I would have seen that spoiler anyway if I continued following the show as closely as I did before).

My thoughts on S3:

1-2: Had its moments, but wasn't as good as I hoped.
3: Can you make your face THIS CRAZY? That alone made the episode worth watching.
4: okay episode.
5: Fantastic episode.
6: This one could set up some fun episodes in S4.
7: This could also have interesting implications for S4.
8: Probably my least favorite episode of the season. Just kinda.... boring.
9: The timberwolf animations were probably the best thing in this episode.
10: Favorite S3 episode for obvious reasons.
11: Okay episode. However, I really like how...
12: ... they handled the simultaneous storylines thing. This episode was pretty good.
13: I really liked it. I'm interested to see how this shakes up Season 4.

Don't mind the double post...

I realized something about the S3 finale. It seems like it was written more for people in their 20's. Young kids won't really be able to relate to the aspect of "so... this is an entire new stage of my life" for quite some time. However, this is a realization people in their 20's are smacked with as soon as they finish college. Childhood is done, you're entering the real world, and there is no turning back.

I have a question as to why that would make you happy?  It won't have any effect on FIM, and I would think someone who watches My Little Pony would be willing to give a show a chance before dismissing it.

Point taken.  :D I am giving it a shot. It may be terrific, it may be horrible. Who knows?
