Discussion

Nemesis and Alca7raz are back! And they’ve decided to start their discussions with reviews of two comics! First, they have Friends Forever #17, the Twilight and Big Mac issue. Then they have Friendship is Magic #31, the conclusion to the Ponyville Days arc!

After those are done, they move onto their big topic. Yes, Friendship is Magic’s 100th episode, “Slice of Life!” A milestone episode, all about some of the background ponies. They’ve previously said that it was going to either be horrible or amazing. So which way did it wind up going?
