I just don’t want MLP to be forgotten (not even G4) to the point where people outside the fandom act like Danny Devito when it comes to Pokemon. (As in people asking what is MLP and why do people like it in disgust.)
 
It doesn’t matter if people have legit reasons to criticize the episodes or lose interest in the show after Season 3, but it feels like they want MLP to be forgotten just because of bad episodes or bad changes. Same happening with other shows that I won’t mention because this thread is all about MLP.
 
I am just bitter that the movie’s failure has to do with the franchise being niche and lesser-known to be attracted to audiences in theatres. A sequel would have helped redeem Hasbro in the film industry since most of their films were F’d in the a by critics according to Rotten Tomatoes. (And the marketing by Lionsgate and the fact that it leaked the posters and the movie just didn’t help the case either. And No offense, but I don’t care if you didn’t like the film, it’s your opinion.)
 
Because of that, I’m worried that the reboot movie coming in 2021 might do the same thing again regardless since people prefer seeing MLP in little tiny TVs rather than big projector screens and, again, the franchise is niche.

on topic but both sides of the of the “should Cozy and the other villains be turned to stone?” argument are annoying.
And while Jim getting death threats over the ending of the show was fuck and the people that sent them are absolute scum, i got tired of his vague non-answer answers towards everything in the finale.
 
This probably isn’t fair, but I think the fans were expecting him to take same interest in the world as Faust did when she would answer questions and engage with fans. And he’s just not that person and doesn’t have that level of investment.

Yeah, but it was famous for just being a little girl’s toy franchise. Nothing more. If the stigma towards anything girl oriented didn’t exist, then it would be famous for more than just a little girl’s toy and would be as respected as Transformers.
 
Transformers and respected in the same sentence? The general public just thinks that Transformers and TMNT are crap for children with a large number of adults who hang around. MLP is in that same boat and that’s all these franchises are ever going to be. Marvel and DC only just climbed out of that hole and they did that by pandering directly to teens and adults.

I Hate Starlight Glimmer and stopped watching regularly when she joined the cast. I hate her guts and think she was a badly thought out and useless addition who cheapened friendship and Redemption.
 
But did she ruin the show? Nah man. Plenty of good still came after. It was a fun journey and I enjoyed almost every step.

Season 9 was more disappointing than outright bad. It made me go “Oh it could’ve been a hell of a lot better with the material” rather than just “Oh my god, worst season ever!! MLP sucks now!!”

I’m just stating the reality of the situation. If it went on for longer like that, then the ratings would go down and you’d have those complaining that it overstayed its welcome. That is unless the writing staff manage to make some worthwhile episodes and wrap up stuff, but even then you’d have those tuning out over disinterest and burnout.

Mlp Fim had a lot of potential to actually be a great interesting out of this world, experience. But it wasn’t… It was just good, but it wasn’t great. The last season had some good episode, but it could’ve been better. Hopefully with the next generation they fix whatever problems gen 4 had. Like maybe keeping a good team of writers who are creative enough to see the potential in something like mlp.

Besides, if the fandom accepted the changes in every show’s finale or premiere (like Twilicorn or EqG), the show would still live to its potential regardless of the stigma or target demographic. But things be damned, because nothing lasts forever. This is why G4 will be forgotten, because of bad seasons and films and stuff.

Yeah, unless they pull a Transformers by bringing VAs like Cristina Vee or Erica Mendez or Nancy Cartwright. Kinda like they did with Optimus Prime in Cyberverse and War for Cybertron by replacing Peter Cullen with some guy on Vine who did Optimus Prime impressions. (No disrespect to Jake Foushee tho.)

I think her exact words were that she wasn’t going to return as “Twilight Sparkle”.
 
She could return for G5, just voicing another character.
 
Then again cosndiering the info for the G5 movie said that it would have both old characters returning and the new characters, maybe Tara just misremembered or got her information wrong.

We’ll just have to wait and see. Pony Life and Hasbro’s other attempts to recapture FiM’s success don’t inspire confidence, though.

That’s a shame cause I really liked her performance as Twilight, but I’d like to see what other character she will play. Most likely a child character or something.

Again i think she might have gotten some misinformation since the blurb we got forthe G5 movie seemed to have implied that the G4 mane 6 will be returning.
 
Either that or she’s on an NDA nd she can’t really say what is gonna happen with G5.
