Discussion

Alca7raz and Nemesis are once again dealing with a hiatus. Can they survive? Can the fandom survive? Probably. But they deal with it by looking at the first half of season 5, and what was in it. And the ranked the episodes from worst to best. That sort of thing goes well, right?

They also review Friendship is Magic #32. It’s an odd one, and they don’t know how to feel about it.
