Discussion

To start with a brief review/brag session, Nemesis talks about some unreleased Equestria Girls Minis he got his hands on: Fall Formal Twilight Sparkle and Sunset Shimmer. It’s mostly about Sunset, though. While most people should who have these figures should know what they’re getting, it doesn’t hurt, right? Also, Nemesis just really, really wanted to talk about them.

After that, he and Alca7raz talk about the new episode, “Applejack’s ‘Day’ Off!” They didn’t really like it a lot, but they didn’t really dislike it either. It really doesn’t help that it aired right after last week’s amazing episode. Still, they manage to find some things about it that were good.
