I actually have seen the show, nearly the whole first season in fact. I think I alluded to that in my initial post. Still view it as nothing special and pretty annoying, both the show and a majority of it's fanbase.
And some people are just plain creepy. Had some dude who is like 25 at work come up to me and shove his phone in my face "hey look at this awesome Pony wallpaper! You should totally check out this show, it's awesome!" Best back the fuck up son, shit.
