Discussion

This week, Nemesis and Alca7raz dive further into the past. 30 years, in fact. Yes, they watch Rescue at Midnight Castle. Nemesis has some G1 experience under his belt, but Alca7raz doesn’t. How will they each react to the episode that started it all? They talk about that, plus the parallels that it has to Friendship is Magic.

Afterwards, they also have issue #19 of the MLP comics to talk about. It’s the 3rd issue in the “Reflections” arc, so they have to spoil the older ones a bit. They’ve had nothing but praise for this arc so far, will that hold up? Find out!
