Discussion

Season 4 is over, so Nemesis and Alcatraz decide to discuss it overall. They figured it was a nice endcap. But they go over some of the usual staples of a topic like this, like the best episode and worst episode. They also have some talk about the music, again including best and worst. There is also a mention of the animation and some characterization. And of course, they would be remiss if they neglected to mention the season long story arc.

Welcome to the hiatus, everyone, let’s remember to pony responsibly!
