Discussion

Alca7raz and Nemesis start things off with a quick review of Friendship is Magic #60. No Legends of Magic #8, unfortunately. Blame DHL. Anyway, this comics has CMC trying to help Fancy Pants’ niece. But nothing seems to work. Oddly enough, this comic has a few superficial similarities to “Marks and Recreation.”

After that, it’s time for the Equestria Girls shorts! Seven more came out since our last episode. Yikes. Anyway, they go through all of them, including the ups and downs. Some of them have entertaining songs, some have odd setups, and others deserved to be longer.

And by the way, while they don’t actually talk about it until after Fan Content, they do mention the new song that came out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DA7l6JPWEhc
