Discussion

Friends Forever #30 just came out! And Alca7raz and Nemesis start off with a review of it. It’s an issue about Twilight and Cadance, with a focus on Cadance’s feelings on being a princess. An interesting topic not really touched on elsewhere. So was it handled well?

After that, it’s back to season 1! This time around, they watched “The Cutie Mark Chronicles!” You know, the episode about how the mane 6 got their cutie marks. Some of the things they focus on include how the characters sound then vs now, some of the unique elements of this episode, and even some of the retcons made since this episode aired!
