Text Review Roundup: "The Cart Before the Ponies"

The ponies in their carts, Wacky Races style
Ah, the briefest glimpse of what might – should – have been

All right, time for another Text Review Roundup. I imagine you all know the setup by now, but just in case: this is a summary of what non-video reviewers, a group that doesn't interest EQD but does interest me, thought of the most recent episode. Clicking on a reviewer's name will take you straight to the review in question. And this time, the reception was generally rather poor.

Articles of Destroyer – negative (rated 5/10; "Applejack, Rarity, and Rainbow Dash all are written very terribly")

Batbrony Reviews – mildly positive ("utterly predictable [but] better than average")

Derpy News – mildly positive (graded B)

KrisSimsters – equivocal ("could have been better")

Louder Yay – rather negative (two stars; "I was rather underwhelmed")

The Railfan Brony – very negative (rated 2/10; "a big disappointment")

Super Recaps – negative ("largely tedious to sit through")

TheDragonWarlock – rather negative (graded C-)

Thrond Media Pony Corner – negative ("the show at its least interesting")

Valiant Venture – mixed (rated 6.5/10)


  1. Thanks for the mention! And keep up the good work, sir! I legitimately enjoy your reviews.

    1. You're very welcome! And thank you!

  2. Hey, thanks for the mention man! By the way, I used to be the one reviewing the episodes over at Unleash the Fanboy but now I write them at my own site listed above. :)

    1. Aha! I enjoyed your reviews at UtF, so it's good to know they haven't disappeared entirely. (My favourite was the summary for "Crusaders of the Lost Mark", you know: "+ Everything"!)
