      +Major Harlock the KKK hasn't lynched anyone since the 60's. Nowadays they're just a bunch of old white guys LARPing. But BLM on the other hand HAVE been starting riots, disrupting traffic, and assaulting people who don't agree with them.
      Sit the fuck down.

    Another one you didn't mention: JewWario i.e Justin Carmichael who committed suicide in 2014 has recently been found to have had many sexual allegations made towards him during his affiliations with channel awesome. A few women came forward and said he raped them. I wasn't aware that there was that much depravity associated with Channel Awesome. It's sickening to say the least. I've watched Nostalgia Critic for years. Up until he started changing his formula. I still watch some of his older videos from time to time. I remember The Amazing Atheist coming out a few years back about his experience with them but I didn't think much of it at the time. Sucks that people on the surface look like good hearted people and try to portray themselves as such usually end up being the worst kinds of people. Then the people who know they're assholes, openly admit it so at least they're honest.

    I always stuck with AVGN but never figured Doug for that kind of guy. He was just recently in a Cinemassacre movie rentals video with James Rolfe and I thought it was really good. I hope he straightens up, its not too late for him

  • Brian Cole
    Brian Cole 11 days ago

    Yeah Blip created a situation for many of us where we primarily enjoyed our video content off of TheXvid. Really, if some internet content required you to go to TheXvid, it often didn’t seem worth it. I wouldn’t just go to the TGWTG site, but also Spoony’s site, Angry Joe’s, Brad Jones, as well as non-TGWTG acts like RedLetterMedia and AVGN. It honestly felt strange and sad when blip fell apart and everyone had to move back to TheXvid. It was a scary time, it felt like a very real possibility that creators wouldn’t be able to make it work on the platform. Happily most have been successful here.

    I was once a fan of The Channel Formerly Known As Awesome. I won't give Doug Walker and cohorts my time anymore (And thankfully I never gave JewWario one glance) at least many of the other former members are still doing okay. Todd In the Shadows is one of my favorites.

  • GarrettCube
    GarrettCube 14 days ago

    I feel bad for Doug. He’s stuck with the channel because somehow he lost the rights to his own idea to one of the biggest assholes in entertainment.
    I hope someday that he’ll be able to leave them with his idea and rights back. It’s not fair for him to be stuck in this shitstorm for any longer.

  • MrWarners14

    I should point out a mistake regarding To Boldly Flee. They weren't stopping the cast's work for no reason (as that's what's being implied). SOPA (the controversial proposed US bill) was a massive deal back in 2011. It was going to affect how you'd view media online and the people online rallied against it. Now, I fully admit TGWTG had it's problems like the stuff you mentioned and the Google Doc, but this was going to affect everyone, not just the TGWTG team. It would have essentially robbed them of the work they did for years if the bill had passed. The TGWTG team were scared shitless and actually went to Congress at one point.
    Regardless of what you thought of their work, nobody deserves to lose their job over this. The job at TGWTG had problems but I'm speaking in general.
    Don't get me wrong, the movie was dogshit in hindsight and I regret watching it now but still, I think that was a crucial piece of information that should have been presented in this video for better context of why the movie's plot is the way it is.

    Damn, I used to love TGWTG but watching those clips, the cringe is so real. A few of the creator's old work still holds up (mostly), like Todd, Noah, Brad, some of Lindsay's work, a few others, but Doug's work was always bad and only got worse to be honest.

      Surviving, but not really going strong, and certainly not on top of the game like they used to be at one point. Sure, the numbers may have gone up on youtube, but empty subscriptions by sockpuppet viewers isn't a good metric for success.

    The criticism of the tactics used to make the movies and the treatment of the actors is understandable. I am confused by criticism of the quality of the movies. Were these movies supposed to be good? I thought they were just bad because it was understood it was made by a bunch of nobodies on a low budget.

    Why you would make this video if you're not prepared to be in any way critical? There are probably some genuine points in those 70 pages of complaints, but if you're merely going to regurgitate that one side's version of events and not even examine them, why should this video even exist? Isn't that exactly the kind of lazy pointlessness that is contributing to YT's demise as a creative medium?

  • Doctor J
    Doctor J 22 days ago

    You know, I was introduced to TGWTG by an ex-BF some years ago, and we had many fun nights watching and sharing a lot of laughs from there. Those memories just feels all gross now...well he was an immature jerk, so every memory feels gross, but still :p
    He sent me that Lupa post and we were heartbroken. If you haven't read it, it really does detail a nightmare hostile workplace and outright horrible (and possibly illegal) behavior from her bosses, particularly Michaud. That freak can burn in Hell.
    Now to see this...I really wish I could reach out to some of these people and apologize personally for what they endured and for ever supporting the site. Its a shame because Doug does seem like he at least tries to be professional and nice, but...lets not kid ourselves, you don't run such a place for 10 years and not be just as damn culpable. He needs to grow a pair and stop being Michaud's pansy.

    Doug had to have been, at absolute best , willfully ignorant of what was going on, turning a blind eye intentionally because he can't be "Nostalgia Critic" if he leaves.
    Every time I find out more about celebrities and personalities I like they turn out to be awful....

    I lost respect for Doug Walker when he created Bum Reviews because I in some ways saw it as a mockery of the homeless. I know from first hand experience that they have it as bad enough as it is, because I used to be friends with a homeless man at one point. However, I didn't know he was this much of a scumbag. Its ironic how he parodies TMZ when he himself would be a subject to their "reporting".

    Well between the Angry Video Game Nerd and Nostalgia Critic, these were the highlights for me in many a dark day. Both were entertaining and many of their videos I could watch more than once. To this day I still watch AVGN on a regular basis and from time to time I will also watch an older Nostalgia Critic as I still find his videos funny.
    I can understand not want to support someone you feel is not worthy. But with in reason good content is still good content. Does everyone stop watching the Cosby Show? Do we stop listening to Michael Jackson, The Dixie Chicks and even Alan Jackson? Do we stop watching all movies because some execs at the top are pigs?

    To be honest I really dont think this was dougs fault. y first he just wanted to have fun and make money doing it. (We would all like that) But the ceos of blip and other people used doug and his friends as pawns but now nostalgia critic is getting punished. Its kinda sad that nostalgia critic is getting used but know atleast he is doing his self well and having fun with it.
