Discussion

This week, Nemesis and Alca7raz finally tackle a topic a long time coming: Equestria Girls. Nemesis promised it over a year ago, and it’s finally happening. They talk about their overall thoughts on the movie, and go over some of the plot holes that were present. They also have a fairly long discussion on why they they think it turned out the way it did. And of course, there’s a long, uh, rant about why Flash Sentry and the romantic subplot are bad, and what could have improved them. Heck, they have a lot they left out, they might have to return to this later…

Anyway, after all that, they also have a brief review of Friends Forever #9. What did they think of Granny Smith’s little run in with the Flim Flam brothers? And is it worth your $4?
