'save the cheerleader' then in season 3 he tears her skull open, scans her power and she simply heals. They didn't think any of it through.

@  Shockwave 75 : (17 June 2021 - 07:04 PM)

Well, you know Hollywood; if something's popular, run it into the ground!

@  Cybersnark : (17 June 2021 - 04:40 PM)

And then there was the Writers' Strike, which isn't the show's fault.

@  Cybersnark : (17 June 2021 - 04:40 PM)

Yeah, Sylar should've been, if not killed off, at least left to rest.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2021 - 03:43 PM)

It never truly recovered from that.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2021 - 03:43 PM)

Season 1 was good until the finale.

I wish they would do something like that here: but then it would become obvious in which provinces you're getting gouged.

Here in Germany, the price you see is the price you pay, tax included.

The problem with giving attention to Doug Walker's "review" of the Wall is you by extension give attention to Doug Walker. And as has been firmly and earnestly established by now, that's not something you really should do.

I've seen on YouTube quite a few reviews criticizing Doug's review of 'The Wall'.

Honestly, the "dunk on Doug Walker" thing is as played out by now as Doug himself.

Yeah but at least this one's a thoroughly analytical dunking of Doug Walker.

It's also made by pretty much the one person I could stomach sitting through almost an hour-long dunk-on-fellow-critic video by. Olson knows his shit.
 
And having skipped over both the original video and everyone else's dunking on it, this is my first exposure to any of it beyond "Doug tried to do a Nostalgia Critic to a movie-length music video of a concept album", which I immediately recognized as such a misguided idea that I didn't need to know the details. But now that I know them... hoo boy, where to start.
 
First off, wow, Doug just cannot stay on topic to save his life anymore. I know people have largely gotten tired of the "just run through the whole movie scene-for-scene and make fun of everything stupid" format, but at least it had a logical structure to it. One disturbing trend I noticed about later Nostalgia Critic episodes is that he kept targeting strawman versions of the fans of the thing he was reviewing. The only time I think it was halfway tolerable was when he took potshots at Onceler fans, because they had it coming. It reached peak cringe when he pretended that the CG Alvin and the Chipmunks movies had its own crazy Tumblr fandom just so he could play up the idea of a rivalry between them and the real Chipmunks fans, the ones who loved the '80s cartoon, i.e. himself. (Hey, remember when the show was about criticizing nostalgia, not propping it up?) And this popped up around the same time that he started getting an unhealthy obsession with "outrage culture" and "political correctness". Which, ironically, actually improved the Demolition Man episode because it got him to pay attention to the movie's themes for once instead of just nitpicking stuff, but then it quickly spiraled out of control. Olson claims that the "We Need More Victimization" scene was a jab at the #ChangeTheChannel movement in particular, but I don't know. If I hadn't been aware that any of that happened, it still feels on-brand for Doug at this point to veer off topic to rant about angry people on Twitter.
 
I bring all this up because that's where it usually starts when a public Internet figure veers off onto the road to becoming one of those alt-right rant people. The only reason I don't think that's likely to happen to Doug is that... well, it's 2021. If it was going to happen, it would have happened already. Like the South Park guys, he's too apathetic to join a cause, good or evil, at least not as long as he still has what's left of his media empire to rule over.

Secondly, wow, Doug can't write lyrics to save his life either. Like, maybe Olson was being selective with the clips he used, but every other line was him put-TING the em-PHAS-is on the wrong syl-LAB-le. I remember when Kyle Kallgren's Brows Held High was still using a Nostalgia Critic format and did an episode on the David Bowie movie The Man Who Fell to Earth. It was done as a musical episode, with the whole thing being set to the tunes of a bunch of Bowie songs. And while the production left a lot to be desired, it was still a really good parody. Shame it's gone from the internet now, although the resolution would probably be hard to put up with. I wonder if Doug ever saw that episode. I bet he did, and got jealous. I hope he still is.
 
Finally... the CG furry shit at the end really caught me by surprise and I'm just... baffled. I've never even heard of this animator, which is impressive considering how plugged into the amateur animation scene I thought I was. It looks like somebody made one of those live-action-CG hybrid movies out of Hazbin Hotel. Thanks, I hate it. Not surprised Doug's a fan, though, since he's always been into the whole Tim Burton aesthetic, and that's definitely what this is, kind of, if you squint hard enough. My guess is that he'd already burned his bridges with every other animator he knows, so this was his only recourse when he wanted to parody the movie's animated sequence.
