Discussion

Okay, there’s a lot to get through this week! First off, Alca7raz and Nemesis talk a bit more about TrotCon, mainly their last day there. There’s also a bit about their panel experiences, both the ones they ran and they attended. Also, a fire alarm going off. Oh dear.

They also have two comics to review. First, it’s Legends of Magic #4. The one about Flash Magnus. And also has Starlight treating Sunburst kinda poorly. And the newfound knowledge it’s tying into the season 7 finale. That’s a thing.

Finally, they talk about season 7 so far. Sort of. They ignore two episodes that haven’t quite aired in the US yet, so don’t worry. There are comparisons to previous seasons, how the writers are doing, and other topics as well. They also have their lists of episodes, going from worst to best. And those lists have some big surprises in them. You’ll just have to listen to find out what they are!
