Discussion

It’s time to meet Pinkie’s sister in “Maud Pie!” And… wow, she’s not exactly… expressive, is she? Still Alca7raz and Nemesis talk about her and the episode in general. And let’s just say that despite Maud’s lack of enthusiasm, the episode was still quite hilarious. Oops, I think I spoiled it…

Also, they have Friends Forever #3 to discuss. A comic about Spike and Celestia? Can that work? They find out, and are quite surprised by it. Also, Nemesis gives away the first two Funko pony figures. Find out who won this week, and don’t forget, there are still two more figures to win. So hurry up and get those emails into pony411podcast@gmail.com!
