Sup. I'm a guy that loves MLP, and also loves dragons. I'm an artist and studying to be an animator... but writing fics is still pretty fun. Not really much else to say.

    Pony Life (This is New)

    So I'm not sure how long this has been out for... but it looks like MLP:FiM was given the Teen Titans Go! treatment that seems to being implemented with new shows everywhere.

    Princess Celestia sits silently on a pillow in her room, lost in thought as she stares down at her cup of chamomile tea.

    New Story Cover

    Just a little note to those of you who listen to my stuff. I changed the cover art for The Root of My Pain, the Core of My Growth to a more generic and different looking broken moon.

Pony Life (This is New) · 5:27am Sep 17th, 2020

So I'm not sure how long this has been out for... but it looks like MLP:FiM was given the Teen Titans Go! treatment that seems to being implemented with new shows everywhere.

To be honest it seems like one of the few times the TTGo treatment makes a show significantly better in some aspect. By which I mean I'm liking the increased focus on comedy and gags. It actually accentuates the comedy that was already present in MLP, and simultaneously removes what seemed like the "weakest" point in FiM: The cringey clash between it being a show for children and the grown adults in the show frequently not utilizing common sense.

Don't get me wrong, I love how the show was while it was going... but most of the episodic conflicts in the later seasons just had me repeatedly thinking "Oh COME ON!!!" to whatever character happened to be dealing with said conflict at the time.

And additionally, now they can just throw logic out the window and have everypony in the show display Pinkie Pie's crazy 4th wall breaking cartoon shenanigans... and then have Pinkie herself be even crazier for the lulz. XD

It certainly has a charm :moustache:

I just wish Pony Life never happened at all. It is a disgrace to the MLP Franchise. -_-

It is a disgrace to the MLP Franchise. -_-

... Did you forget that Gen 3.5 was a thing?

Never watched much of it given that I wasn't fully involved in the MLP Fanbase till 2015. :/

5357563
Same, but I know enough about it to know that I wouldn't watch it past the first few seconds. Pony Life on the other hand, I actually enjoy watching the quirky humor. I actually laughed hard enough to cry a little when I first saw Twilight literally shatter to pieces. Applejack made it even better when she said, "...well, we've lost Twilight" as Gummie vacuumed her up. XD

5357662
Eh, but that's the thing: They made them into running gags which get really, really, really, REALLY ANNOYING. -_-

5357875
Well, if they're annoying to you, then they're annoying to you. I can't do anything about your personal preference.

I'm saying that I like Pony Life because I don't have to take it seriously at all for how it's formatted. That was my biggest issue with FiM as it got into the later seasons, since it was still semi-serious in certain parts. And, actually... now that I think about it, Pony Life is good enough that I think it would be better to compare it to RWBY Chibi than to Teen Titans Go.

I guess.... but having a show rely on just comedy alone like Pony Life for example doesn't work out so well. :/

5358760
Really? Cause I can think of several shows that do exactly that and they turn out fine. I think that shows that rely on only comedy aren't inherently bad, they just have nothing to fall back on for audience appeal if the comedy falls flat. When the comedy works though, it works.
