Discussion

Four topics?! Whaaaaat. Yeah, there’s quite a bit this week. Good thing there wasn’t a lot of news and no fan content. To start it off, Alca7raz and Nemesis review Movie Prequel #3. Finally. Still, it keeps up the streak of good prequel comics. Speaking of the Movie, Nemesis talks about The Art of My Little Pony: The Movie. New artbook! He doesn’t venture into spoilers, but there’s a lot within it to mention. Even if it is $40. They also watched what is possibly the last EqG Summertime Short. It has Rainbow Dash in it!

But most of the episode is dedicated to “To Change a Changeling,” the newest season 7 episode! And they have a lot to say. About Pharynx. Schadenfreude. How to improve the fight scene. And other little bits. And before you ask, no, they didn’t dislike because of a certain two characters. In fact, they generally thought it was pretty good.
