Discussion

Another busy week! Sheesh. To start, we have the 2nd Movie Prequel comic to review. This one is about Captain Celeano. The pirate parrot. They also take a look at the flood of Equestria Girls shorts that have aired. Well, most of them. A few aired after recording (they’ll get to them next week). Interesting stuff there, including a new animation studio!

Then Alca7raz and Nemesis get to the new season 7 episodes! Well, sort of new. You know how these things are. Anyway, they start with “Discordant Harmony!” Discord and Fluttershy. And quite a good episode in its own right. It’s only problem was that it was immediately overshadowed by the next episode, “The Perfect Pear.” The long awaited episode that deals with Applejack’s parents. And it does a fantastic job of it. We have a lot of praise.
