Discussion

This week, Alca7raz and Nemesis decide to go to the beginning of Friendship is Magic and talk about the pilot episode, erm, “Friendship is Magic.” Like many others, this was the first episode they had ever watched. They talk about how well it holds up, and the surprising attitude towards it from the fandom, at the time. Plus, just how different it was from the rest of the season.
