Text Review Roundup: "The Gift of the Maud Pie"

Since Equestria Daily is only interested in video reviews of the show, plenty of interesting text-based assessments get overlooked. (Someone asked Seth about this on Twitter. He pointed out that they can go in episode post comments – well, yes, but that hardly has the status of a curated post.) Obviously mine are far and away the best of the lot, but I thought it might be worthwhile to collect a few that I'd come across in my virtual travels. I'm ignoring Fimfiction reviews for now, as most people reading this will already know about those. This isn't intended to be a comprehensive list anyway, as that would take me forever. Here we go:

Batbrony Reviews – fairly positive; image-heavy

The Entertainment Nut – moderately positive

MLEEP Reviews – extremely positive

Super Recaps – positive; similar to how I do it, but much better longer

TheDragonWarlock – moderately positive

Unleash the Fanboy – very positive


  1. Oh my goodness, PLEASE keep doing this! I don't have any interest in watching the video reviews (fifteen minutes of my time for thirty seconds worth of actual content seems to be the going exchange rate for far too many of them), but a written review that I can skim over and catch any details from the show I may have missed/any implications that breezed by me is much more my speed. And now, I know about half a dozen text reviews that I'd never heard of!

    1. Thanks for the vote of confidence! I'm certainly intending to do this next week. If it doesn't prove to be too much work, I would like to make it into a continuing feature, since my feelings about video reviews aren't a million miles removed from yours.
