[OFFICAL] Overall thoughts on Pony Life


Recommended Posts

I dont like it as much as fim but i can definetely watch it. Pony life feels a lot more like a kids show than fim (tbf its Made for kids lol) and there is some pretty random stuff in the show which isnt quite my thing.Overall its still pretty good.

I found it alright, but it's no FIM, for sure. Maybe the lack of variety is the biggest problem I had with it – we didn't get the more adventure and action-oriented episodes with the whole focus being

Pony Life is a massive embarrassment. It is extremely cringy, and should have never even existed. The art style is utterly disgusting. 

Many threads have been created sharing one’s overall thoughts on the series. To avoid any further locking/merging, this will be the official thread to do just that. What are your general thoughts o

Oh somehow missed this thread. Anyway I enjoy listening to the VAs/writers do their thing, but it's probably staying in the background - dipping in and out and not feeling the animation.

I don't really like Pony Life it's too ummm something, yeah that's the word. And my sister hate it because it's changing from the fun and entertaining MLP:FIM to something obviously she wouldn't watch.

I've only watched the first episode all the way through, and for a moment, I thought I was going to get motion sickness from how fast everything was going. Ponyville looks like Candy Land on LSD, which did nothing for the experience. But one thing that got a giggle from me was:

it's obviously just something quick to churn out for toys to get some type of money in while they're busy putting most of their effort in g5, so i'm not really that upset over how dumbed down it is, i still kinda wish on some level it talked to the audience better and portrayed themes just a little more maturely.

i understand ponylife is for little little kids but at some points i do honestly enjoy watching it but then stuff becomes to random and the lessons in the show start making no sense and it doesnt even seem like something good a child could watch for most of it.

but hey i'm into all gens, including this one, so i still watch it from time to time. just wish they didnt make it so obvious that its just filler till the movie gets released

I'm not overly fond of the show, it just seems to be a more childish and dumbed down version of FiM, which I understand is sort of the intention, but as a show written primarily for children ever since its inception back in 2010, this seems redundant and unnecessary to me. I'm not hating on it just because it's different, and there are some things that I do enjoy about the series, some of the jokes are legitimately funny and it features the characters and voice-talent (for the most part) that we've grown so fond of over the years, but I just don't think that it compares to FiM as a show, for kids or otherwise.

With that being said, Gen 5 is on the horizon, as early as this year apparently. If that series gives me a viewing experience more akin to what I look for in this series, then I'm willing to brand this whole "Pony Life" experiment as a harmless diversion.:grin:

Can’t believe this: but I miss Horse Life :Cozy:

Yo bro, me too. The fact that we're not even getting the new movie in theaters just gave me even less of a reason to be excited. No guarantee that Season 2 of Pony Life will be good, but at least it's much less of a wild card. :maud:

Truth be told, Pony Life was wasted potential. The sporadic writing just killed it for me. I couldn't even get past the first episode without having to turn it off. I took a look at the potion nova episode and i was like "nope". See, in order for Pony Life to be truly successful, there has to be a balance. They focus on humor too much to the point where you're being thrown stuff constantly, like trying to wring out the last bit of water from a washcloth.

Pony Life kinda hurts to watch, every time they mention modern technology (like phones and tablets) I shrivel up like a raisin :scoots:, plus I don't find it very visually appealing. If somebody likes it though I guess I could see why, the plots of episodes are much simpler and less serious than FiM.

I like it. :coco: I did not have any real expectations for it from the promos, but it turned out to be really entertaining. It reminded me of what happened when Equestria Girls first came out. The fast pacing and brevity of the episodes is sure to be a turn-off for some, but I love the high-energy plots, how everyone is still in character, and how they work in story arcs and darker, more bizarre jokes. If this show is ponified Teen Titans Go (a comparison I'm admittedly getting tired of...), then it's ponified TTG done right. :fluttershy:  

My opinion is largely unchanged even as I see the negativity for this show is largely unchanged. It's something simple to enjoy to tide the wait for G5, I like it for what it is.
