• 1/66 Days of Pony - Friendship is Magic Part 1

    As pointed out by our app programmer, Leon, we have 66 days until Friendship is Magic starts up its new season. Why is 66 significant? 66 is how many episodes are available (including EQG).  So what are we going to do about this? I propose a countdown!

    Every single day for the next 66 days we will revisit an older episode in order, turning back the clock if you will. There are only a few of these that didn't spark some kind of major discussion, be that based around the canon of Equestria as a whole, or the background ponies suddenly gaining resounding popularity and surpassing even the main characters in fan-created content. 

    So lets get this show on the road with the one that started it all!  Friendship is Magic Part One released way back in 2010, spawning an article on a website called Cartoon Brew that largely complained about  the revamp, citing it as another rung in the fall of creator-driven TV.  The animation fans over on the comics and cartoon board on 4chan saw it in a completely different light though,  spawning thread after thread about how great the animation is, and how ridiculously cute the ponies are.  Digging back on a Fluttershy Youtube video from October 18th 2010, It's pretty funny to read people's initial reactions:
    Fluttershy could make Chuck Norris melt. - Kruppenstien
    Eeee, she's uncontestedly the cutest pony in this series - Crimpyiff
    I will admit, I'm an adult and this scene still cracks me up! - Chosenviper
    Anyway, head on down below the break to watch the first episode of Friendship is Magic in all of its oldschool 480p glory.  We didn't have Xyro recording/uploading it in 1080p HD within 3 hours of it's release back then!

    Commentwise, if you want to have fun with it, pretend it's 2010 and you are watching it for the first time!
