Discussion

To start things off, there’s issue #68 of Friendship is Magic to talk about! It’s the 2nd half of the Tempest Shadow story, and we quite liked it. It’s actually pretty fun to read, even if there is one small thing to dislike.

Alca7raz and Nemesis then have two new episodes to discuss! First up, it’s “A Matter of Principals.” An episode about Discord screwing with Starlight and the school. We’re… not too fond of this episode. And the central problem is how it handles Discord. It feels like he has regressed. But things start looking up with “The Hearth’s Warming Club!” Another holiday episode, this one finally delivers a bit of fleshing out for the student six. And it’s actually pretty fun!
