Been a fan of MLP FiM since Season 1. When new episodes would premier, I was always excited to view them!
Now it is Season 8, and to be honest, the premier weekend came and went without much fanfare for me.
Long ago, Canterlot.com was the center of my life, so much so that I became an active Moderator here.
But the years have flown by, now I am a retired Moderator and have close to zero interest in the franchise.
I lost the Discovery Family channel from by TV package two years ago, and I really don't miss it.
I even tried to watch the Season 8 premier on YT, but I couldn't bring myself to do it.
I'm not interested in viewing the recent movie either. I have no plans to rent the DVD let alone buy it.
Outside of "The Perfect Pear", I honestly cannot remember much about any of the Season 7 episodes.
No, I'm not completely leaving Canterlot.com, but at the same time, I've lost most of the enthusiasm I once had for the franchise.
I have loved my time on this MB, and over the years, I have truly enjoyed the TV show.
But y'all have to admit, the activity on Canterlot.com is not what it used to be.
Perhaps overall, the fandom is beginning to show it's age.
Anyway, just had to share my feelings. Maybe I can rekindle my interest in Season 8 somehow, but until then, got a lot more things IRL I need to tend to.
I'll still be around, though not as much as in the past.
