The funny thing about Schafrillas is that his dad is a hardcore Republican.

Isn't that the case for most of the really extreme leftists, that they came from families that were evanglical christians/Republicans then they run away from that to be the same, but even more extreme like Linkara or Lindsay Ellis? I guess Razorfist was right when he said “you ran so hard from your parents that you became them on crack."

I can confirm since a brother of mine did that.

Meh, just be thankful that Lordkat never became that way (let alone, he is still a consistent shitposter).

I've pointed out many times that this psycho twitter left has basically become the new religious right of the modern age, and when I say it, people either go "Holy shit, you're right" or they look at me like I've got six heads or something, as if to say "How can he say something so stupid?".

When some of the elite hardcore evangelical conservatives would go out of their way to authority music (from the likes of Slayer, Pantera, Cannibal Corpse, Anal Cunt, N.W.A, ICP, or Eminem), video games (like Doom, Call of Duty, Mortal Kombat, GTA, etc.), animation (anime included), either action or horror movies, and comedians (like Lenny Bruce, Richard Pryor or George Carlin) would now be at the hands of the extremely radical social networking leftists who would do the exact same thing by either cancelling everything or everyone or disagreeing with someone who form their own opinion piece.

Mind you, this isn't just Twitter (which yes, that site is the prime example where mentally ill psychopaths screech six ways til Sunday), but also Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat and tumblr also have just as awful lunatics as Twitter.

I gotta be honest (and blast me all you want), but this is one of the most hypocritical threads on this site, if not THE most. You guys dedicate your time to talking about how terrible Doug is and his inabilities as a reviewer, while taking cheap shots at his fans, friends and folks, but as soon as someone else on youtube or twitter does it, you dog pile on them and mock them for beating a dead horse, when you're practically doing the exact same thing. You're somehow worse than Nostalgia Critic.

You overestimate how much of a shit is given. If anything it’s more the level of hatred levied, where some just seem bitter that Doug won’t go away, I’m content to just let him do his thing on the Internet.

If anything, the humor comes from a relic of a bygone era of the Internet causing so many people to want to go after him and pile on him in the event he fucks up after doing something like The Wall.

Honestly, I've gotten a lot more lenient on Doug in recent years. Which may be because of Lindsay Ellis and Breadtube making much worse and pretentious stuff but that's neither here nor there. It's not like he doesn't have his awful moments recently like the Raimi Spider-Man reviews but he does have the odd interesting commentary here and there even aside from the Dark Toons videos where he just talks as himself doing off-the-cuff commentary.

The Ralph Bakshi and Alita videos are ones I'd honestly recommend because there is such a genuine passion behind those reviews where he compares how the latter movie adapted scenes from the anime and manga and the production problems in the former while praising Bakshi himself as a talented animator. Even the Sucker Punch video was oddly good where he gives the movie a chance despite making fun of Zack Snyder so much. So overall, I'm starting to come around to liking his stuff more, I just have to take the good with the bad once in a while.

Credit where credits due, the guy puts out scripted half an hour long videos every week and has done so pretty consistently for 10 years. His more ambitious projects have mostly fallen flat on their face and he's not particularly funny, but the sheer dedication is impressive.

Sure, he's like the YouTube equivalent of a newspaper comic artist. The jokes will feel the same every week and he'll rarely stray from the formula. But he still grinds away at it.

Same with me. I've defended Doug in terms of CTC and I like his videos for the most part. I do criticize things he and CA do like leaving twitch streams on twitch instead of putting them on youtube as well, ad breaks are too long, and things like that, however I'm not doing it to hate Doug, but talk about how CA and Doug can improve things. You can't just give blind devotion to people you like because they will take advantage of that and put out shitty videos. People don't improve if you keep praising them no matter what they do because they will see no reason to improve if there's no complaints at all.

Who are you again?

Anyway, if anyone wants my side of the story, I stopped watching Nostalgia Critic by 2013 or so. I ended up rewatching by 2016 only to stop watching for good by 2018, and it's not because of the CTC situation or anything like that. I just think he's still unfunny and that's that.
