Discussion

This week, Nemesis and Alca7raz once again go back to previous seasons of Friendship is Magic! It’s “The Cutie Pox” this time. This is an episode that Nemesis holds in fairly low regard, at one point considering it the worst of the series. Find out why, and if his opinion (and Alca7raz’s) has changed at all since then. Also, a brief refresher on exactly what order season 2 aired in.

After that, they have the new comic to talk about, Friends Forever #8. Considering the lukewarm reception to Cook’s and Price’s last comics, how do they feel about this one?
