bat recaps the first two parts of The Return of Tambelon, which turns out to be some magical castle town that exists in liminal space and is home to a villainous goat. Go figure.


[My Little Pony] My Little Pony: Bright Lights – Parts 1-2 (S01E21-22) (25 Dec 2018)

bat recaps My Little Pony: Bright Lights Parts 1-2, where a trio of Baby Ponies somehow get themselves backstage to hang out with a shifty rock star, whose boss steals their shadows. A none-too-subtle exploration of the abuses and crimes in the music industry. Except for the fact it’s a childrens cartoon from 1986 and an evil wizard is behind it all, this could be a life lesson for 2018.
