Discussion

This week, Alca7raz and Nemesis have a super-timely discussion on Ponies the Anthology V! Because it came out right after recording episode 112. Anyway, they talk about what they thought overall, and compare it to previous Anthologies. They also talk about the weaker skits, the reuse of some material, and whether or not an Anthology 6 would be any good.

Friendship is Magic #33 is also reviewed this week! Just what did they think of the conclusion to the apple-centric story?
