A : Probably you think, "Why are you watching a little girl show?".
Heh! Just to let you know, I hate sappy, cuddling, sugar coated programs, that's a fact. But I know when a show has potential. MLP is not the exception.
Basically because of the storyline, animation style, voice acting, etc. I dunno, I don't watch MLP frequently, but it's, if not the best, a great show. I suggest you to give it a try. Who knows? You may end up liking it.
