It's at 42:53, just in case it doesn't take you there automatically. He's saying the schlubs that were working for Channel Awesome were just as strong personalities as all these iconic Batman villains who have been around for decades, some for over 70 years. Doug believes if you put strong characters together "it writes itself". Uh, huh. I'm sure Doug would do just as well in a professional writers room as he did doing live improv.

He tried that with Kickassia... which turned out to be one of the worst, most unprofessional films I've had the displeasure of seeing.

And you wanna know something? Kickassia is considered the ""best"" of his trilogy of films.

Have you seen To Boldly Flee? If you haven't, don't, because it's 3 and a half hours of Doug Walker comedy in what is one of the most self-fellating ego trip storylines I've ever watched in a work of fiction.

It's actually quite impressive how Doug managed to take a 30 minute concept of saying farewell to the character he was playing, and made it longer than the theatrical version of LOTR Return of the King. Then bring the character back soon after when ratings tanked.

I'd like to say that I'd have handled those anniversary specials differently, but who knows, if I had a bunch of people online stroking my ego, I'd probably indulge in it too. Who knows?

At the very least though, I know I wouldn't have taped a girl upside down to the wall. Seriously, guys, just put her up on a step ladder or some kind of stable platform, tape her wrists to the wall, set her hair up so that it at least looks like its dangling upside down, film it right side up, and then flip the footage upside down. Its not that hard, Any video editing software worth a damn could pull that off (I think even Windows Movie Maker had that capability). I'm not saying it would have looked great, and its low tech as fuck, but as least she wouldn't have, ya know, passed out.

Let's be real here: it wasn't really a farewell video up until maybe the last 15 minutes or so of the movie. Up to that point, it just felt like a really, really cringy and shoddily-made Star Trek fan movie: except it has Kirk being the sole focus, and it was as if the people making it weren't even fans of the show to begin with.

So a crappier version of Star Trek V

Has anyone visited Channel Awesome as of late? Because holy shit, that site is deader than Rasputin. Not only did they never brought back their forums, but none of their videos get any comments whatsoever. They need to get rid of it, it's just a useless vestigial limb at this point. All the people still watching are obviously bypassing it and going straight to their youtube channel.

I just checked and the only other partner Channel Awesome has is just Cinema Snob. I am not sure but they lost Cinemassacre as a partner.

I could be wrong, but I think that happened during Change the Channel. I know that Cinemassacre quietly removed Channel Awesome's name from their site around that time. Clearly there's no love lost since Walker has appeared in Cinemassacre videos since then.

The most shocking thing about this post is that I was stunned to find out the site was still up.

Who maintains it? Why do they maintain it?

Okay quick question about Dr. Gonzo's comments. DG mentioned something about Aussie-Gate. What was Aussie-Gate?

Was he really a creepy perv? I've begun to question all the old TGWTG lore, especially anything that comes out of Holly. I wonder if he was just very un-PC. I had an Australian friend in college that said things that made all the snowflakes' jaws drop.

Don't forget this was also a possible send-off in the case of SOPA getting passed, which it didn't. It was being written around the time they were voting on it and Rob REALLY let his opinions of the ordeal known at the beginning.

I completely forgot about the SOPA shit, JFC.
I just remembered they named it the SUCKA bill in a completely subtle way to poke fun at the bill.

Best part was that the subplot was dropped a third of the way in after 8-bit Mickey (I think that's his name?) kills the politician for making fun of his height or some shit. It was completely pointless and only served to date the movie severely. Tell me, does anyone remember SOPA now?

When they had more than Doug and Brad, I assumed that it was up because spergs might visit it kind of out of habbit, maybe check out other creators, but now it's just bizarre to keep it. I get keeping the domain for 'business' reasons, but you don't need to actually use it, or just have the url redirect to the YouTube channel.

I mean they do drop the word cunt all the time, I've seen that shock a few people, just sprinkle it on as a good old sentence enhancer
