Discussion

Alca7raz and Nemesis start things off with a review of Friendship is Magic #54! It actually takes place during “Fluttershy Leans In” and focuses on Angel. Interesting concept, but it doesn’t fully deliver. Oh, and it has art by Jay Fosgitt, someone who is… controversial. They’ll explain their feelings on it.

After that it’s all about “Hard To Say Anything!” And they actually had a lot to say about this one. It has Big Mac and Sugar Belle. Liking each other. So many sunken ships… Oh, and the CMC are there too. That’s important. Plus some other guy named Feather Bangs? He probably didn’t get in the way or anything.
