Discussion

Season 6 returned this week! But first, Nemesis and Alca7raz share their thoughts on a recently released toy. Specifically, the Guardians of Harmony Nightmare Moon. Paint apps, overall build quality, all of that. They tell you if it’s worth buying.

Then it’s time to discuss “Stranger Than Fan Fiction!” An episode where Dash goes to a Daring Do Convention. Oh. Oh dear. What did they think of it? How was Quibble Pants? Could the fandom learn from it? Spoiler: absolutely.
