Bronies: The Extremely Unexpected Adult Fans of My Little Pony, the documentary that takes a look at the world of Bronies, has finally been released! Anyone who preordered a digital copy through the Kickstarter should have gotten an e-mail with instructions on how to download it. If you weren’t part of that group you can still pick up a digital copy for $12.99 from Scrnland. The download is available in many formats and even the 1080p version can be downloaded in a matter of minutes if you have a fast Internet connection.
I had a chance to check out the movie earlier today. If you haven’t had a chance to watch it yet you can watch the trailer below. Keep reading for my review of the film.
ICv2 has released comic sales data on the top 300 comics from December 2012. We have provided a little analysis for the My Little Pony comic sales. Join us after the jump for statistics, analysis and charts!
ICv2 has released the Top 500 Comics of 2012 “based on Diamond Indexes and Publisher Title Data”. See the disclaimer after the jump for more info on the basis of these numbers.
In a year dominated by Marvel and DC, Image Comic’s Walking Dead #100 took the top spot with Marvel titles filling out the rest of the top 10. In fact, we don’t even see a DC comic until the 17th spot. IDW made its top spot on the list ranked at 90. What book did IDW top out with at 90? None other than My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic #1.
This week’s episode of “Hot in Cleveland” featured a rare prime time portrayal of a Brony! It basically boiled down to an adult in a fur suit played for laughs but what can you expect from this show? The episode in question is season 4 episode 6 “Cleveland Fantasy Con” with an air date of January 2nd.
I had never seen an episode of TV Land’s “Hot in Cleveland” before today so you’ll forgive me if I’m not totally on board with the formula of old ladies making sex jokes and us finding it funny because … they’re old? I must say it’s refreshing to see a bit of a role reversal with older women being in relationships with relatively younger men but that didn’t make the bad jokes any funnier. Don’t tell the live studio audience about that though because the laughs that ensued after the most bland comments were enough to make the Big Bang Theory’s audience sound like guests at a funeral.
Now I understand the irony of a grown man who watches a show for little girls criticizing a show for old ladies so let’s just look at the episode in question. You can watch the episode on Amazon Instant Video using the links below or if you’re American you can watch it on the TV Land web site.
A new fan trailer has surfaced using the audio of the new Star Trek: Into Darkness teaser. The video of the trailer has been ‘ponified’ using clips from the show, most notably shots from the Crystal Empire Season 3 premiere two-parter.
Gameloft announced an update to the iOS version of their My Little Pony game. While the game is out on both Android and iOS devices, the news update on their site only mentioned an update for the iOS version. This winter update brings us many bug fixes along with three new ponies; Teacher’s Pet, Pip Squeak, and Bowling Pony. It sounds like an Ice Cream Shop and Log Cabin have also been added.
I think we can all agree here that the real story is that another Big Lebowski pony was added to the game.
