After finishing the first episode of MLP, I can say, out of experience, that the show is an insidious, creeping evil. About halfway through the show, I felt a dark force crushing my heart, as a vice... I began shaking and grew cold. By the end of the episode, I had almost lost my will to live. I realized that if I continued with the season, my soul would surely be corrupted; but the monstrosity that is My Little Pony had created a wanting, a needing in me to continue watching. If I die, you'll know why.
