Discussion

To start off the discussion,it’s a new comic! Ponyville Mysteries #2, to be exact. A bowling alley mystery with some very familiar ponies. While the story is pretty straightforward,  Nemesis and Alca7raz both wound up enjoying it. Mostly because it was funny.

But then the two of them go back to season 1 again, this time to “Owls Well That Ends Well!” It’s an episode that Nemesis has called the worst of season 1 several times. He and Alca7raz share why they feel that way. Yes, being Spike-centric does play into it, but they also feel some characters were not portrayed well.
