FINALLY!  :party:
I’ve been waiting and waiting. It sure takes awhile for things to come to Netflix. I’m glad to have a date now though. Thank you for posting that!
Lots of good stuff in this season!  :biggrin:

I'll watch it for some of the G1 creation infos but I am not looking forward to - yet again - people discussing why Western otakus exist and completely disregarding boys who enjoyed G1.

What I am more interested in is how they transition to new gens and what influences the shifts. Especially the G2 shift and failure in the US market. But I bet half of the pony segment will be waxing poetically about pone-takus.

Uuuuuggghhhh... Why...? I’m honestly afraid that this has become MLP’s “legacy”. Can it just be about the toys again? Please?

From what I recall of previous episodes they focused heavily on the creation of each toy brand and the people involved with it, not so much on fandom stuff (though the He-man one talked a bit about the adult fanbase, mainly because they're the only ones invested in the franchise these days). Will be disappointing if the MLP ep is any different.

Really tiresome to still hear "Adult men watching a show for little girls???? SO WEIRD!!! :blink:" in 2019, but at least the trailer had mostly G1 stuff so hopefully that bodes well. Of course G4 is also a very important part of the brand's history so I don't mind it being there, just hope it doesn't take up too much of the episode.

We are never living them down, do we? :(

Atleast Mad Max's "curse of part 4 overshadowing older" is actually nice...

I'm hoping that the brony reference will be brief and the rest of the episode will focus on MLP toys especially G1. It looks like they interviewed someone that has enlarged copies of the pamphlet/brochure ads.
