Discussion

We only have a single topic this week: the newest episode of Friendship is Magic, “Fake It Til You Make It!” It has Fluttershy acting in an increasingly jerkish manner. And it may have a couple of big problems. One of which being continuity. But it also has a lot of strong points. It appears that the fandom is a bit divided on this one.
