Discussion

Alca7raz and Nemesis once again dip into season 2 this week! This time, they go with “Read It and Weep.” They have a bit to talk about, including the introduction of Daring Do. And Nemesis speaks on how this episode affected his view on Rainbow Dash.

They also have Friends Forever #11 to go over. The issue with Rainbow Dash and Spitfire. They discuss Spitfire’s problem with kids, and they fact they don’t address her behavior in the past. There’s also a bit about the artstyle, which is certainly unique.
