Discussion

Lots to talk about this week! First off, Nemesis and Alca7raz recap their experience at Everfree Northwest! If you want some more details, you can watch their videos on it. Or ask them. They also have two comic reviews. Friendship is Magic #53 is up first, and it’s the wrap up to recent story arc. While it’s not bad, it doesn’t quite have a satisfying ending. Alas. Legends of Magic #2 is the other comic, and it’s about some pony named Rockhoof. It’s a bit surprising, and its moral may have been awkwardly handled.

But then it’s the meat of the podcast! “Parental Glideance” is the newest FiM episode, and that’s what’s talked about! It’s kind of a big deal, considering we finally see Dash’s parents. WHOA. And Alca7raz also hijacks the discussion here. He liked it, but he does have a few nitpicks to sort out. There’s still plenty of praise though.
