Discussion

This week, we finally get to Friends Forever #31! I mean, we were out of the country last week, you can’t put all the blame on us. But yes, the issue with Rainbow Dash and Little Strongheart. What did Nemesis and Alca7raz think of it?

And of course, they watched “Dungeons and Discords!” You know, the nerdy episode. With Discord, Spike, and Big Mac. An odd combo, but it can work. As we saw. There’s a few things to discuss here, including odd pacing, actual acknowledgement of the comics, and neat animation.
