Discussion

To start things off, Alca7raz and Nemesis review Friends Forever #29. It’s about Rarity and Maud Pie, an interesting combination. It’s also written by Ted Anderson, who has had an... uneven output. Did it manage to impress them? And will a ship manage to gain any popularity?

After that, it’s all about the mid-season finale! Yes, they talk about “Spice Up Your Life.” After two weeks of average episodes, it was nice to get a good one. A good one with interesting new characters and a song!
