Discussion

Nemesis, Four String, and Artfan jumped into Nemesis’ DeLorean and watched My Little Pony: The Movie. You know, from generation 1. Why that instead of Transformers, who knows.

But in all seriousness, they discuss their opinions on the movie. The story, the villains, the blatant product advertisement, etc. It is definitely a different approach to the franchise than Friendship is Magic. Artfan also interjects with some Double Rainboom talk, because why not. And there is mention of the... other MLP movies out there. Oh god.

On top of all that, Nemesis also discusses the two comics that came out recently. Namely, the micro series Rainbow Dash issue and issue #5 of the main series.
