In his review of "Too Many Pinkie Pie" he's tries to argue that Pinkie Pie was out of character and that she was no different from her clones. Looking at the episode, Pinkie Pie was not in any way acting, as he described her: zany, shallow, impotent and inconsiderate. Some have even argued that even if Pinkie did act how she is described in the review, this could be considered a strength as it makes the other Mane Six harder to sort out the real Pinkie from the clones. Many more critics (including CR) have pointed out how easy it was for rest of the Mane Six to differentiate who's who, and for them, it was glaring flaw. Byter also dives into how this episode (at least for him) had way too much "slapstick" compared to other episodes of the show. Now for everyone on this planet and since the origin of the word, slapstick has always been physical humor, such as getting hit in the groin or a pie to the face. Byter apparently believes that slapstick is "contrived situation for humor". When people called him out on this, Byter stated that definition of words are broad. Essentially, arguing that because he misused slapstick, there is now a new meaning to that word.
Now onto his "Sleepless in Ponyville" review. In this one, he argues that the episode lacked depth, and that the episode was the most "verbose" in the entire series. Now ignoring the fact that it doesn't manage to even make it into the top forty, in terms of the amount of dialogue, how much depth did it have compared to other episodes of the show? If you're going to convince people that it lacked "depth", then you are going have to demonstrate how this episode lacks said depth. For example, you could take an episode from a past season and compare and contrast the two. Some reviewer even argued that the episode "Hurricane Fluttershy" could be a bad episode by using the exact same reasons that Byter used to explain why he didn't like Sleepless in Ponyville. Such as how Fluttershy was scared but afraid to show it, how it took the entire goddamn episode for her to overcome her fears, and how the cartoonish elements conflict with the episode's tone, such as Spike playing a pan flute, that character Snowflake constantly shouting "Yeah!!!", Fluttershy disguising herself as tree, the list goes on. I am pointing this out because it seems to convey that Byter is displaying a sort of double standard in his reviews. Essentially, that it's wrong for a season three episode to lack "depth", but it's okay for a season one/two episode to similarly lack "depth" as he describe it.
In his "Wonderbolt Academy" review, his biggest issue with the episode was that the Wonderbolts Academy was like a boot camp. Yes...that's his biggest problem with the episode... He also goes on and states that the Wonderbolts were never part of the military. And while it is true that it's never been outright stated that the Wonderbolts were part of the military, it is heavily implied that they maybe in fact are. Such as in the episode "Secret to my Excess" where they fight off Adult Spike, and in your own review you mention them fighting monster. Isn't that kind of a military to you? And even if you argue that they're just militia forces, they're still "the best flyers in all of Equestria". Maybe it's different in the UK, but here in North America, ask anyone in or was in the military, and they'll most likely tell you that the purpose of a boot camp to whip you into shape and to prove that you are capable. And considering that the Wonderbolts are "the best flyers in all of Equestria", they would be a team that would require the same amount of commitment and discipline as that of the military. On top of that Byter states that the Wonderbolts are a bunch of assholes, even when they realize their mistakes. This is a problem I have with a decent amount of fandom members since I've joined. Many seem to have this incredibly black and white viewpoint when it comes to morality. Basically, if one or more characters who you look up to or suppose to look up to, does something you consider morally wrong, then they are automatic irredeemable. This doesn't count for most antagonists as they're not characters who you're suppose to look up too. And in Byter's case, the Wonderbolt are irredeemable. In total, I can describe the review as this: This episode ruined MY, I mean Lauren Faust's vision of who the Wonderbolts are!
These are just a few examples of the kind of arguments that Byter states about every episode from season three and (from what I can gather) beyond. So if you've read up to this point you may be wondering, "Why do we care what he think?" Well, the problem here is that Byter is just large slice of an even larger pie. That of which being a growing belief that MLP has declined in quality since its first or second season. Comparing Byter with CR, you can tell they both have quite a lot in common. Both believe that the third season doesn't hold up to Lauren's vision, and that she alone was what kept the series afloat. Both have used petty, idiotic, or just flat out false reasons for why the third season doesn't hold up to Lauren's vision. Both have taken potshots at members of the cast and crew (especially Meghan McCarthy). And both have accused anyone who questions them of harassment, mocking, and "not respecting other's opinions", while harassing, mocking, and "not respecting other's opinions". And based on the comments on CR's deviantart profiles (don't look, it's a cesspool), they're not the only ones who believed that. There's even an entire deviantart group that essentially made their one alternate continuity in which Twilight never got her wings and that "status quo is god". Out of all these pre-season three fans, Byter at this point is probably the most prolific of them. On top of that, he is also shown to incredibly pretentious and an ego with the size of Jupiter. If you had any bad experience with Byter or any other pre-season three fans, please let me know. Maybe ultimately, I'm over-exaggerating, but from the looks of it, Byter and the pre-season three fans are a serious issue, and at the very least, then must be knocked down peg. And if you're arguing that it's a matter of opinion. I'll say the definition slapstick is not a matter of opinion (and if was the word would be rendered meaningless because no one would know you're talking about), nor is the heavy implication that the Wonderbolt are part of the military, or at least some form of protection.
