Discussion

To start, we have a review of Friendship is Magic #41! This issue is an homage Little Golden Books, so it’s a bit different than others. But the question is, did they do a good job? Nemesis and Alca7raz both have fond memories of those books, so they better have.

But after that, they have the new episode “Gauntlet of Fire” to talk about. It’s a Spike episode, and historically, those haven’t been the greatest. Does it manage to beat the odds? Especially considering it’s practically “Dragon Quest” part 2.
