Discussion

Happy New Year! Alca7raz and Nemesis decide to look back at 2014 this time around. Because it’s not like everyone is doing that, right? Right. Anyway, they discuss some of the major things that happened in the realm of MLP (even though they probably forgot a few). They also look a little towards the future. Hope 2015 is a good year!

They also have a review of issue #26 of the My Little Pony comic. This issue wraps up the story started in #25, and they weren’t exactly thrilled with that one. Unfortunately, they weren’t too hot on this one either. They will tell you exactly why, too.
