Discussion

Oh my god. Alca7raz and Nemesis talk about “Equestria Games” this week. And nothing could have prepared them for what they saw. It’s another Spike episode, but it has one of the most unbearable scenes in the history of the show. Not because of bad quality, mind you, just… listen in. You’ll understand if you don’t already.

On much a less cringe-inducing topic, they also have Issue 18 of the My Little Pony comic series to discuss. Does it live up to issue 17? Find out as they discuss the twisted world that was revealed within. Including a good King Sombra! Who actually says more than 3 words! How strange is that?
