Text Review Roundup: "The Parent Map"

Here we go again with Text Review Roundup. The spectre of early releases in Canada seems to have been lifted, so TRR will continue for the foreseeable future. Another week with a stable slate of reviewers, and on the whole reaction to "The Parent Map" was down a notch from that to "Horse Play". These reviewers were still positive on average, but there was a fair bit of variation.

Cuddlepug – negative (graded C-; "one of those episodes where everyone ends up apologising to each other for being honest")

Derpy News – mildly positive (graded B; "some good lessons ... but there were opportunities to address other things")

JDPrime22 – positive (8/10; "I liked this episode!")

Louder Yay – mildly positive (3/5; "A predictable story with a predictable moral, but with some nice touches scattered through.")

Mega Sean 45 – positive ("pretty similar to the story of Parental Glideance [but] we get to have more Starlight and Sunburst friendship development which is always interesting")

MLEEP Reviews – rather negative (5/10; "awesome to finally see the parents of Starlight and Sunburst [but repetitive humour and] pretty predictable")

Rainbine – very positive (9/10; "relatable stuff throughout")

ShutterflyEQD – mixed ("there wasn't too much this episode had going for it, except a new location we got to explore, and new characters")

TheDragonWarlock – mixed (graded B-; "does have its moments ... some solid jokes [but] plot and pacing though feel jarring, the subplot felt pointless, and the ending felt pretty rushed.")
