Discussion

Nemesis and Alca7raz start off the discussion with a review of the My Little Pony 2017 Annual comic, Guardians of Harmony. It has six stories. And they’re of… varying degrees of quality. Let’s just say it doesn’t handle advertising the toys gracefully. There’s also that nasty issue of plagiarism. Whoops!

After that, they go back to almost the beginning of the show with “Applebuck Season!” This is the episode that really hooked Nemesis when he first started watching. It’s a silly episode that provided a lot of silly things for the fandom to latch onto. They talk about that, Applejack, Twilight being snarky, and a few other odds and ends.
