Discussion

Alca7raz and Nemesis start things off with a look at Friendship is Magic #44 comic. Finally. Blame USPS. It’s the second part of the “Ponies of Dark Water” series. Nemesis wasn’t too fond of the first part, but he might have been swayed by this issue.

After that, it’s a look at the new episode, “The Cart Before the Ponies!” The episode about racing. And the CMC! And trying to relive your childhood through others or something. So was it fun? What about the song? What kind of lessons can be learned from it?
