Text Review Roundup: "Every Little Thing She Does"

Twilight yells at Starlight Glimmer
"And don't you ever try that wing-removal spell again, you hear me?"
Another week, another episode... though if the UK TV schedules are to be believed, that saying isn't going to hold for Tiny Pop next week! Anyway, last Saturday's ep was very controversial before it arrived. Did it do enough to please the text-based reviewers? Well... in some cases. Some of them hated it, and I mean really hated it. That's Starlight episodes for you, I suppose. Good to see Batbrony back this week, incidentally.

ArthurCrane – positive ("builds on the details we’ve known about Starlight so far")

Articles of Destroyer – slightly positive (rated 7/10; weak middle act but excellent ending)

Batbrony Reviews – very positive ("a really, really solid episode")

Derpy News – very positive (graded A; "great less[on, although] a bit repetitive")

Louder Yay – very positive (four stars; "does both Starlight Glimmer and Twilight a power of good")

MLEEP Reviews – extremely positive (rated 9.5/10; "a magically fun episode")

The Railfan Brony Blog – very negative (rated 2/10; "Starlight once again proves to be a poorly written character")

The Super Mario Brony Blog – really, really negative (minus one star; "I'll just keep hoping that she'll [guess!] be scrapped from MLP for good")

Super Recaps – negative ("[mind control is] just an unpleasant premise")

TheDragonWarlock – mostly positive (graded B+; "a good episode, but not as good as Starlight's previous outing")

Thrond Media Pony Corner – mixed ("Not a misfire, and very admirable for its ambition, but definitely flawed.")


  1. It's reviews like these that make me realise I'm now a pretty casual fan of the show.

    1. I dunno... I think it's just the Starlight factor for the most part. There are still more positive than negative reviews to this one. :)

  2. This is not a best Starlight episode ever, but an episode that Starlight actually needed.

    1. It's probably my favourite "good Starlight" episode. My favourite overall is still "The Cutie Map", though.

    2. Actually, no: "A Hearth's Warming Tail" comes in higher, though that's fantasy Starlight.
