Discussion

This week, Alca7raz and Nemesis go back to season 1 for the first time! In particular, they look at “Sonic Rainboom.” Alca7raz is rather fond of this episode. You probably know why. Anyway, they talk about what they thought about the episode then and now, and even its impact on the fandom at large.

They also have a (somewhat late) review of issue #13 of Friends Forever. They were rather surprised by it being Rarity and Babs Seed when it was first announced. So how does the comic fare now that they have actually read it? They’ll tell you, of course! After all, it can’t be worse than the other recent issues, right? Spoiler alert: it’s not.
