Ah, if i'm being honest, for me it's less i didn't like the show and more the "Everyday until you like it" approach it's fans took back then was really wearing on me. Seriously couldn't go anywhere without getting spoonfed copious amounts of horseshit, go to art sites, it's all pony shit, youtube copies amounts of pony like cupcakes and .MOVs some edgelord used to make, hell, fucking/v/ was having fucking meltdowns over it, the worst of which made the admins freeze the board for a day. Try to go to a chill night streams, nope, the admins start interjecting pony clips, and then eventually the full episodes themselves, (iirc) trying to convert everyone else in the channel under the excuse of "Sorry, my friend is making me do it! :^)". Near the end i made the decision to just cut the shit entirely, couldn't tell you if it was a good idea or not because aside from the molestia thing(Metokur did a video on it, annoyingly it seems like it wasn't archived.), i have no fucking clue what you're talking about with most of that.Same here, watched the first 2 seasons, and i was even part of a mlp imageboard at that time, but as soon as season 2 ended, i flat out dropped the show and stopped posting in that imageboard altogether. I guess i never liked FiM all that much, i was just caught in the hype, since FiM was as its peak during the first couple of years.
Looking back, it saved me a lot of bullshit from the next seasons, Twilight turning into an alicorn, that Molestia drama and all those episodes that were nothing but brony fanwank come to mind, i guess i made the right choice.
And now for the next few years people will claim that Gen 5 "It's not that bad, it's actually pretty comfy and wholesome UwU", yeah, no. I'm not even going to bother with this one, i'm done with anything related to mlp.
Anyways, I don't think you have to worry about hearing people talk about Gen 5 much. That movie was more or less on par with a dreamworks production, and not the memorable ones like Shrek, either, more like Captain Underpants, and the wait between it and the tv show is absolutely going to KILL any hype or momentum it has.
