Discussion

We have two episodes to discuss this week! But first, a new comic series! It’s Legends of Magic #1. It’s about Starswirl and the royal sisters. Some interesting lore stuff pops up here. Alca7raz and Nemesis were actually pleased with this issue.

But yes, season 7 has begun! And it kicks off with two episodes. And they are not a two-parter. Well then. They start off with “Celestial Advice,” the premiere proper! And there are some mixed feelings regarding it. It has some significant Celestia (finally), but it also has some weird problems regarding the main plot.

And then there’s “All Bottled Up!” This episode also created some mixed feelings. It introduces some oddities regarding how magic works, and Trixie is… less than pleasant. But it also has genuinely funny bits too. Oh, and Starlight is there too. For better or worse. Guess which one they think!
