Lauren Faust brought epic action and story lines to a drab personalty deprived, sin against all art work average and holy.

 

she took a glorified ad and made it into the wildest nerdgasm ever. so....

  :maud:

and I have no interests in watching them beyond the few clips I watched

I agree. Personally, I love G1 because of their stories, but the art is horrible. G3 has cute art, but it lacks plots and storylines. G4 brings them together!

Before I read the actual post, I have but this to say: yes.   loljkroflcopter   I like the theme song for G3, but honestly after watching anything else of it I feel like a 2-year-old. And not in a

Noo!  I loved G3! My Little Pony's Generation Three was practically my whole childhood.  It pretty much taught me to read and write.

I like the first one. Not very substantial in comparison to our beloved series, but it laid the groundwork for a fantasy world with lots of perils and villains. This might sound odd, but I'd almost think that the old world was perhaps a little too dark actually!

 

There were always monsters and super villains after the ponies, the "heroes" themselves weren't as powerful or intelligent as the Mane Six, and the closest to a world saving deific figure was the leader of the Flutter Ponies who defeated the Smooze. 

 

For a quick comparison, where Equestria is very much the world of heroic myth, with gods and virtuous heroes performing great deeds. Ponyland (ugh) was more like a Grim Fairytale, saccharine on the surface, but sinister all elsewhere. 

 

Why do you think Tirek was by far the greatest threat the Mane Six have faced? He's straight lifted from a generation where villains were either campy and silly or monstrous and hyper-competent with very little in between.

None of the previous generations even compare to FiM in my opinion, though that's not to say that they were completely rubbish.

It'd be kind of like watching the very first eps of Doctor Who. Not bad necessarily, but.. Very hard to watch.

I have enjoyed FiM enough so far that I decided to take a journey through the past gens of MLP, largely to fill the void while I wait for a new season, but mostly because I felt like I was out of the loop whenever past gens were brought up, which happens more than you'd think around here. I've finished the first series and am most of the way through Pony Tales. They aren't perfect by any means, but I've found something to like about both series, despite Pony Tales being unpopular. It's not actually any mystery to me why people don't care much for it, mind you. Even G1 is an acquired taste. Still, I'm glad I've seen them. I'm not sure if I'd see them again, and am not positive owning any past gen DVD is in my future(not that owning Pony Tales is even an option in my region). I do want FiM on DVD though. As for G3 and 3.5, I'll cross that bridge when I get there.

Aw, come on, people, G3 isn't that bad.

 

I for one enjoy Tales for its simultaneous explicitness and innocence, and especially G3-G3.5 for providing me with pure cheerfulness and lush spectacle.

 

Still have to find my way into G1.

 

 

I'm gonna go ahead and say that Gen 3 is that bad, but that I also was wrong about 3.5 being as bad as I claimed... since I was actually under the impression that 3.5 was "Newborn Cuties".

Yes, a few months ago after getting outside of the Brony echo chamber (it was very much an echo chamber on the early generations, trust me), I decided to check out the earlier generations and I'm glad I did!

 

I don't like them as much as FiM. Although I did still like them. I actually like G3 toys the best. G4 toys can not compare.

I loved Wind Whistler! Glad I'm not the only one!

I enjoyed G1 quite a bit. It had some really cool villains I wish were in Friendship Is Magic. I also liked some of the ponies. Wind Whistler, Fizzy, and Firefly were the ones that stood out the most to me. I also noticed that there were a lot of ideas that were reused in G4. MLP Tales was a step down from the original show. All of the fantasy elements were stripped away. It was pretty much High School Musical with ponies rather than humans. There were a few good episodes but some were not of my taste. G3 started out fine. It brought back the fantasy elements that define the franchise yet there were no actual villains like that of G1. The episodes got progressively worse over time; the bottom of the barrel was Newborn Cuties, which needs no introduction.
