Bronies: The Extremely Unexpected Adult Fans Of My Little Pony

Fans of the children's television show are outlined in this well-made, but overly chipper documentary. I found this film to be very depressing. I was prepared to eviscerate this film and the fans of the show. What was extremely unexpected was how moved I was by the fear and shame the fans feel, and the lengths that bullies will go to to inflict physical and psychological damage to these poor guys. I am still a little baffled by the obsessive fandom surrounding this upbeat, happy, and optimistic television show, because I dislike happiness and rainbows and friendship. To each his own. More power to ya, Bronies.
