Discussion

This week, in a fit of insanity, Nemesis and Alca7raz watched “The Princess Promenade.” From G3. So another trip to the past, but to a more horrific time. So what is the movie like? Spoiler alert: it’s not great. Listen in as they tell you why. And please, please, don’t try to find out for yourself. It’s not worth it.

After that agony, they switch gears to comics. Specifically, a review of Friends Forever #7. It’s Luna and Pinkie in this issue. They’ll tell you whether it’s worth your money or not.
