My Little Pony (generation 1) with Alex Navarro - Breakfast Quest 11

Episode description

Giant Bomb's Alex Navarro joins Nick and Lars for part one of MY LITTLE JUNEY, a special four-part miniseries throughout the month of June, in which we're watching and discussing horse- and pony-themed shows EXCLUSIVELY, culminating in an episode in which we discuss the current phenomenon known as My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic.  We kicked things off with the very first incarnation of My Little Pony, an episode called "Rescue at Midnight Castle."  In this episode, some ponies get kidnapped by a guy named Terak who has a special nightmare-filled sack.  Come for the free-wheeling conversation about horses, stay for the uncomfortable discussion about exploitation of the Holocaust.

WARNING: CONTAINS SPOILERS FOR PANOS COSMATOS'S 2010 SCI-FI HORROR FILM, BEYOND THE BLACK RAINBOW
