The Otaku in Review audio program, circa March 2011. They had many positive things to say about the show. Not long after, I watched about five minutes of FIM episode one before losing interest. Since then, I've watched only a few episodes, mostly on DVD. It seems decent so far. Most of my current interest is due to the Bronyville audio show, and fan-made music rearrangements.
I've met a fair number of fans thanks to a Facebook group and its events. Many of them seem enthusiastic and easy to get along with.
Right now, I'm part of Team Switzerland. No favorite characters, pairings, episodes, or creators.
I've been a video game and fantasy fiction fanboy for decades, and an anime/manga/alternative comics fan for almost as long. Recently I've delved into board/card/strategy games, and I've been slowly getting into Friendship is Magic fandom.
