My best friend got into it before I did, and she showed me some songs and the first two episodes. I admit I didn't like it all that much at first, past thinking it was just another cute children's show. Boy was I wrong. So a little while later, just before the Hearts and Hooves day episode came out, I was bored one night and decided to give the first two episodes another watch. Best decision I ever made. The second time I absolutely loved them, and quickly downloaded the entire first season as well as watching as many as I could that night. Within a few days I was completely caught up, and COMPLETELY obsessed. I got my little sister into it, and met many great friends because of this show, in real life and online.
