Discussion

Welcome to 2016! Alca7raz and Nemesis recently got their hands on some of the Equestria Girls Minis, so they tell you what they think. Paint apps, poseability, and more. They came away quite impressed.

They also take a look into the past. They rewatched “The Best Night Ever!” Yes, the season 1 finale. What they think of it now, some of their favorite bits, and some of the fandom stuff that it started.
