Sure we can make fun of Doug all we want, but other then him been delusional by e-fame, repeating every joke in his reviews, and not improving over time, he isn't half bad. He makes content regularly, can improve someone's mood (intentionally or unintentionally) and doesn't make stupid statements on social media, like other ex-CA members.

That said, this thumbnail is everything we love about Doug, making fun of himself, not realizing context and statement he makes unintentionally. Other that that and stamps.com stupid ad, review isn't bad, he actually recommends the movie and has a few chuckle worthy moments in the video.

It's funny that Doug was one of the few people who made it out of the whole Change the Channel debacle relatively unscathed.

Because Rob and especially Mike are the real villains of the story. And they are keeping low key by not overresponding to the document, meanwhile Doug, who is face of the site and company, continues to make content and doesn't get himself involved in the whole thing.

That thumbnail makes Doug look like he took a lot of crack, but he really must've thought it was funny cause goofy faces means laughter

Like I said, guy doesn't know what kind of message is stating with his thumbnails. And he was reviewing old commercials last week. It just shows you that most critic can criticize other peoples work, but make same or worst mistakes, when they do same or similar thing.

It's because the only bad thing they had on him was He was a bad director who didn't take our suggestions. Even those petty compliants are lies. One example is they had to be told to have food and water. That's not what happened. From 17:10-18:00, it's clear they knew they had to get food and water for people on the set. They also told them to bring their own water just in case. Another Example is Lindsay Ellis saying Doug laughed at her for asking about craft services. That's not what happened. At 18:10-18:30, You see Lindsay just say Coffee? and it's clear Doug took it as her asking if there was going to be coffee on the set not if there is going to be craft services. Doug is laughing because Lindsay is struggling to get any words out not about craft services.

You got anything regarding Suburban Knights or To Boldly Flee? Those two, especially TBF, are the main source of complaints. And Lindsay and others also complained about Doug not taking anyone's advice on the technical aspects when it came to these who actually went to film school. And then you got Linkara's complaint about having every producer persona be "out of character because reasons".

For To Boldly flee, You should look at the slide show to see that they had catering and water on the set. They even indirectly addressed in their response to the document talking about holly's surgery.

For Suburban Knights, I'm trying to upload Linkara's commentary of it where Iron Liz talked how they had Mcdonald's, how they got the food the same way as they did at Kickassia, and Iron Liz even points out that they had water on the set on the last part of the movie. Also on the commentary track with Holly and Iron Liz, that they had more food than Kickassia. That one you have to download Surburban Knights to hear that one, and that bit is about 50 mins in. I tried to upload videos, but no luck so far uploading anything so that's why I have only been providing links.

Irony is that the only bad thing about Doug is that he sniffs his own farts a bit to much, has a huge ego, and isn't the nicest at Cons or when meeting fans, but outside of that the dude produces modestly decent content regularly at a good basis, has a decent studio, and doesn't seem to be doing as much skits (though thats thanks to Covid so once its ever done im sure were gonna see them come back.)

I always said to myself the biggest high point for Doug is that EVERY Nostalgia Critic video has its own dedicated charity, like every single one where he spends the credits giving like a three minute or so long explanation of what it is and how it helps. THAT is what prevents me from making Doug into the "Terrible asshat" pit, cause even if its somehow phoned in, has still dedicating to charity and that's pretty nice of him.

Here is Linkara's Commentary for Suburban Knights. Iron Liz talks about how they had Mcdonald's and how Bhargo got food for Kickassia about 7-8mins in the first part of the commentary. She also talks about getting food about 4 mins in the third part of the commentary. Iron Liz talks about the water they had on set on the seventh part of the commentary 9 mins in. I had no luck finding the sixth part of the commentary.

Well, aside from the services, the only other thing I’ve heard was people like Lindsay and Linkara talking about Doug being a shitty director because he didn’t take the technical advice of those who went to film school or do enough to make sure the characters being written was utilized properly and written true to what they’ve always been in their own shows...but that could possibly be dismissed as massaging bruised egos.

Exactly. The complaint is that Doug didn't write their characters as they wanted to be written but as he saw them. One of the only times he listened was in "To Boldly Flee" in which Linkara said he'd only allow his "Mechakara" character to be used if he was to be treated as a villain he was intended as.

For the rest, they're a bunch of prima donnas who think their little internet show is somehow "art".

I will say this. Nostalgia Critic is dumb as fuck, but Doug just talking about something and not being cringe *Cough cough* ThIs MoViE SuCkS song *cough cough* is actually entertaining to a degree. I mean I prefer it over him screaming like a tard in front of a shitty greenscreen.
