Man, I've been really missing out by ignoring things outside of the Serious discussion forum >.<

 

Alright, feels to the people who are feeling jacked up, I've been there and I know how it is.

 

To Selfsurprise and helio, nice profile pics. I like them.

 

As to offending other people on the internet (GASP!)..... I think it's a bit unpractical at times to not offend people. Plus, the percent of communication that's nonverbal is about 90 percent, so dw about it, we can just talk it out if somebody is tripping. Although coincidentally that's also why I don't like talking/posting much on forums and just kind of lurk instead, it's difficult to convey my thoughts in an amiable way over pure text, and I'm kinda driven to make others feel better to an extent. So I guess it's safe to say we're all in the same boat here, unless you're an ubermensch and the perfect internet lifeform- come here to end my folly.

I just finished season 5 of Star Trek TNG. I'm 10 episodes away form DS9 and I'm really looking forward to it.

You're in for a treat, DS9 is my personal favourite of the Star Trek iterations. It seems to have a broader narrative scope than most of the other series, the alien characters are treated more like individuals rather than just set-dressing in order to contrast humans and nonhumans, that and not everyone in it is a Federation goody-two-shoes which makes for more interesting relationships and character dynamics. Theres plenty of thought provoking sci-fi tropes and anomalies for the cast to contend with, but I reckon the real meat of the show is in the politics and social conflict that underpin so many of the stories. It's a very ambitious show in that regard.

There's no denying the impact us Bronies had/have on MLP, and popular culture in general. Like the show or not, doesn't matter. Let me ask you this: When this generation of MLP is over (whither it be now, seeing as season 6's over, season 7, or whatever), and Hasbro has that unavoidable itch to reboot the series again, do you think they'll go back to the "we got to sell the toys!" and/or the "it's only for little girls" mentality, or do you think our impact will last past FIM?

There's a thread for this.

A) That's been dead for a year

B) That thread is specifically for Bronies

C) I'm asking everyone, not just Bronies

A) That doesn't mean you can't bump it

B) We held an agreement to keep all MLP-related discussion to that thread years ago

C) This isn't a debate, I'm just reminding you

But wouldn't you want the opinions of people who've actually seen MLP:FIM? Not everyone watches MLP:FIM myself included so I don't have an opinion on it.

 

What I can say is that cartoons as a whole are no longer just marketing for toys. People want more out of their cartoons and creators delivering with cartoons such as Steven Universe and Gravity Falls. Cartoons aren't my area of expertise so those were the only two off the top of my head I could think off. Cartoons aren't really my thing. But I mean do you see the problem here? You are asking everyone after all.

I'm asking people to keep an open mind on the question, not be biased against the show. It doesn't have to be MLP. We have reboots like Teen Titans Go, which clearly is shitting over the original, and its fanbase.

 

Also, Username, your inner BTG is showing with your seclusion towards MLP.

But I thought this had to do specifically with Hasbro marketing toys with the next reboot of MLP. I thought that was your original question.

It's not seclusion, this is discussion directly related to the show and thus belongs in the appropriate thread

Nobody asks you to put your pony images or videos in the MLP thread so long as they're relevant to the topic, the least you can do is keep the discussion there.

And I've noticed that you like to toss our mutual dislike for BTG around as if it's some point to an argument, it's a fallacy at best but I'll entertain it anyway:

IT'S NOT A CRIME TO HELP UPHOLD AN AGREEMENT WE ALL DIRECTLY PLAYED A PART IN

The rule includes keeping strict discussions about the show to it's thread so I am gonna have to ask the topic be moved there.

Well then! It's now Halloween, according to my calendar, and we don't usually celebrate it in our country, but I DON'T CA

So a quick question: how do I choose a proper pumpkin for carving? I'm sure there are experts present in Accursed Farms, and if there isn't actually one, I'll be very disappointed and sad... okay, not really, but still would be a bit disappointed

Recently started watching Stargate: SG-1 again. And remembered why i love the show so much. While somewhat naive & idealistic (though not too much), it is good sci-fi thats grounded in reality. Well, at least first seasons. All that while giving possible hints where technology could lead us. "Learning Curve" episode (watched it today, Season 3, ep 5) for example is one scenario that is extremely interesting. This show is also great on moral dilemmas (though they usually get perfect solution)

So today while coming back from my lunch break at my blizzcon store job, I looked at who was currently ordering and low and behold the people placing their purchase orders one window down are non other than Arin and Susie Hansen. I was so caught off guard that like the intelligent person I am blurted out a little too loudly "Oh my god it's egoraptor!" And he must have heard and seen the absolutely retarded look on my face because he gave me a "do I know you?" Kind of awkward wave.

 

That made my whole day even if I did probably just get written off as a weirdo.
