Discussion

Friends Forever #23 came out, and that’s what Alca7raz and Nemesis start off with. It’s about Applejack and Fluttershy! Ted Anderson and Tony Fleecs were the ones who made it, and they don’t have the best track record. Did they fare better this time around?

Season 5 is over, so it’s time to look back! They compare the second half to the first, and the whole thing against previous seasons. They also rank the episodes, from worst to best. There are actually a few surprises in there.
