Text Review Roundup: "A Hearth's Warming Tail"

Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy singing on a cloud
I couldn't fit this picture into my review, but it's much too cute to leave out entirely!
After the very mixed reception given to "Newbie Dash", this week's episode got a far more positive reaction from most of the text-based reviewers. As you'll see when you read down the list, gushing praise for this ep hasn't been universal – there are also a few dissenters on UK of Equestria – but it's certainly captured the hearts of an awful lot of fans.

It's been pointed out to me that some people now come straight to these posts from Google etc, so won't have read my own review. I'll therefore add that to the list, in italics to make it clear it's nothing new for regular readers. Without further ado, let's get to the actual review links:

Batbrony Reviews – wildly positive ("amazing ... quintessential MLP")

Derpy News – wildly positive (rated A+)
Louder Yay – extremely positive ("I was grinning virtually non-stop")

MLEEP Reviews – wildly positive ("all-time favorite episode of the series")

MLP Fanatic – very positive ("I liked pretty much everything")

Ponyland News – extremely positive (rated 9.8/10)

Super Recaps – mixed ("some very strong elements ... story didn't live up to all that it could have been")

Unleash the Fanboy – wildly positive (rated 10/10)

TheDragonWarlock – slightly negative (rated C+; "kind of forgettable")
