If Equestria had TV/Netflix, what would each of the Mane Six watch?
Twilight is easy: PBS, Science Channel, and so on. She gets really mad when she channel flips past History channel and they’re showing their usual bullshit… she misses back when they showed history.
Pinkie Pie is also easy: Cartoons, cartoons, and more cartoons.
Rarity is addicted to trashy telenovellas, the trashier the better, even though she doesn’t speak a word of Spanish. Don’t ask me why, it just feels like it fits.
Rainbow Dash would watch a lot of sports, you’d think, and she does, but after watching a couple of the Daring Do movies she’s gotten addicted to old adventure serials, too.
Applejack doesn’t have much time for watching TV, but when she does, it’s cooking shows and home improvement. She’s the only one of the Mane Six who watches TV news, and as a result knows less about what’s going on in the world than even Rainbow Dash.
Fluttershy watches nature shows, of course, and soccer. She says it’s because Angel likes it, but truth is she does too.
None of them are particularly fannish, or at least none of them watch the big Tumblr-dominating shows. The CMC, on the other hand, are nuts for Doctor Who, and Sweetie Bell has recently discovered Supernatural. (Which she probably shouldn’t be watching at her age, but nobody’s stopped her so far.)
This is a Wild Speculation post, so feel free to comment with your own opinions on what the Mane Six would watch!
