Discussion

This week, Alca7raz and Nemesis decide to focus on Spike. Not a Spike episode, just Spike. Specifically, his character, and why they’re really not fond of it. The discussion also goes into his usefulness, the role he should play, and if they think he can be improved.

They also have issue #25 of the MLP comic to review. They were looking forward to it, but they think it has a problem. A big problem. Nemesis in particular thinks this. You can probably guess what it is.
