It occurred to me that I might have been a bit too ambitious in attempting to swallow a show I have had absolutely no interest in watching. Even watching the show itself makes me feel weird. Sort of like the time when I watched Himechen. Couldn’t really get why people watched the shows. I wish I could back out of this whole thing, but I must fight onwards.
Okay, this episode Twilight gets an invite to some sausage fest or something. I’m not really sure ; EpicMealTime was in another tab. However, the princess only gives her one spare ticket to give to one of her friends. That troll. Still not liking the show at all though. I still don’t feel entertained. I even feel obliged to drop it and end the torture, yet something tells me to persist on.
Cut to the chase: the girls (fillies?)
attempt to see who could kiss her ass the hardest fight it out to see who could convince her to give up her spare ticket. That penknife suddenly looks very attractive. Of course, all of them have their own reasons for wanting to attend the gala, with one of them just wanting to be forever alone in the garden and another kind of being a slut. Basically, all of them really, really want to go, as with every plotline involving limited resources in children’s TV shows. Kids like to fight for things, huh.
In other unrelated news, I finally figured out how they hold things. They don’t really have legs, they have 4 tentacles with hooves at the end. This helps them bend around and grasp things. However these tentacles are strong enough to let them stand….fuck I need my coffee it’s midnight , tomorrow we’re meeting a CEO and I’m watching ponies. Damn it, focus, let’s continue watching. . . .You know that cliche plot-line I talked about? Of course, the whole town of fillies finds out and they all chase her. As with most children’s TV shows. Unfortunately for her, Carrot Top spots her and stuff like that. And in the end , she chooses not to go if she could not receive enough tickets, and with that she does receive enough tickets. Nothing much here; it IS a kid’s show after all. God I’m still trying not to reach for the penknife. Oh god.
I don’t really know whether this ‘project’ is a good idea or not. The last time when I posted about trying to motivate myself to watch anime,no-one ever talked about reverse motivation: I’m stuck between either ponies or anime. By forcing myself to watch things I don’t like, all of a sudden anime seems much more interesting. Hence, I suddenly feel inclined to finish off my 1-year-long backlog before September ends. Thus, I think I’ll give the show a couple more episodes before I decide to drop it or not. It doesn’t matter at that point if I know I won’t be able to find any interest in this shows.
Any bronies care to enlighten me on why you like the show?
Anyway, I think W.C. Fields best answers this: “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. Then quit. There’s no point in being a damn fool about it.”
