The End wasn't The End - Found a new home after the great exodus of 2012

Looks like the Spoony Experiment is definitively over now, as Noah hasn’t tweeted in a week, and his house is up for sale. (no, this isn’t doxxing, as no one lives there now; and doxxing isn’t allowed on the subreddit the link goes to, nor on Reddit itself).
 
Whether Noah will return to social media, or be added to the pantheon of “he was here, now he’s gone” youtubers of yore, remains to be seen…

I get where Doug is coming from with his review talking about wanting it to be something of a production that can also be critiqued as well but I still think it’s a problem when you are trying to review something AND give you’re own personal thoughts on how you feel about it. This is why Doug should have just done something more like RiffTrax or MST3000 because at least that way he’s just making jokes and not trying to actually make points about why the movie didn’t work (or why it didn’t work for him).  
I also stopped watching his videos for the soul reason that he makes money off of views, doesn’t even matter if you watch the video all the way through all he has to do is create a thumbnail for a topic and that’s it. If other people do Let’s Watch of his videos I might watch it since I’m not contributing to Doug, though the problem then is having to suffer through his awful critiques and jokes.

Double Toasted recently did an interview with Doug Walker that addressed several of his controversies, including OneyPlays making fun of him, the backlash towards the Nostalgia Critic review of Pink Floyd: The Wall, and of course the #ChangeTheChannel scandal. The full interview can be found here, but if you just want to see the moments I mentioned, Double Toasted also posted separate clips of them. Links to those can be found below.

I do have an idea of where some of the complaints come from (I’ve complained about certain aspects of his show in the past myself), but if the worst thing you can say about the guy is that he’s overenthusiastic, we should consider ourselves lucky.
 
To be honest, I find the overlap between anti-CTC and alt-right/channer/lolcow culture to be disconcerting. MovieBob (vindictive, self-righteous, and hypocritical though he may be) had a point when he compared the alt-right to high school bullies.

I think it’s because he’s such an easy target for some. He’s known for being super passionate about comics and this whole “calling out treatment of women in comics and such” tend to be seen as fake.
 
I think it had also had to do with the infamous Power Rangers rant over people bugging him over the “When is the next episode of HOPR?” joke.
 
While I don’t agree with his recent stuff of going hardcore left winger, compared to others, he’s at least more nicer than those of Lindsay or Kyle.
 
Hell I was expecting stuff about him to come out during the CTC drama but everyone said he tried to help them while on the site.

Why does everyone hate on Linkara so much? He’s acknowledged that Lightbringer was a dumb comic and he’s not that proud of it now. He’s learned from experience, and even if he hadn’t, I wouldn’t be comfortable with making fun of him over it.
 
Was it the AdBlock thing? I mean…AdBlock does deprive him of revenue, and I’d take ads over paying directly for content, so I can’t blame him for saying something. It’s not like he criticized anyone for not donating to his Patreon.
 
I just don’t understand why people act like he’s on par with the worst tweets of Lindsay Ellis and ObscurusLupa just because he’s part of #ChangeTheChannel. Even if he’s become more critical of TGWTG as time has gone by, he’s not hateful, he’s not toxic, and at no point, as far as I can tell, has he ruled out any good faith dialogue with the other side.

That did not age well, I tried to give him the benefit of doubt but he seems to label a lot of things as Fascist
 
 
I noticed Lewis is doing that, his constant references of it in the Batman: The Dark Night Returns really felt uncomfortable and forced in.

You’re right, but I feel that those dates can be a bit of a messy ledger given what the likes of Doug reviews. He, like me and others of his age group, is also intimately familiar with both Tom and Jerry and the Loony Toons, which are from decades before we were born. I’d imagine just like here in NZ, stuff like that was still being broadcast in child-friendly time slots even if only to fill broadcasting gaps while channels waited for more Duck Tales, He-Man, and Nicktoons to get made.
 
I bring it up because even stuff older than him could be ‘properly’ reviewed in terms of nostalgia, because for him, it would be a nostalgic part of his childhood.

@northern haste  
Something worth noting about Doug: negating his Top 11 lists, Old vs. New, Disneycember, and Editorials, you want to know what the oldest thing Doug has ever reviewed as the Nostalgia Critic? The Star Wars Holiday Special from 1978.  
Doug usually talks only about things from the 80s, 90s and onward.

Besides him being a film theorist, I’ve never really been able to pin Kyle. The last thing I ever saw from him was on Twitter where he defended the right to make rape jokes when there was some controversy about Daniel Tosh making a rape joke way back when (2012/2013).
 
More broadly, I’ve never been able to pin down who is fanbase is meant to be, beyond film students into really niche films. The best I can gather is that he’s a Nella to Chez Apocalypse rather than to just Lindsay, in that without it, he can’t stand on his own. To be fair to him, the Oancitizen thing isn’t really what he wanted to do as his main output (akin to Film Brain wanting to do Projector as his main show and not BMB), so him pulling back from it is pretty understandable.

Minor note but I find it amusing that Kyle acts like such a toughass but he’s such a child when he labels everything as Fascist, spams that Antifa is a good thing, and jumped on the “German Expressionism lead to Nazism” crap.

@Dr_Osaka  
Why? Does he not like the original Mulan?  
(Yeah, I can understand looking at a popular movie and making a comedic review on it to see if it “still holds up” but if he says he likes the movie at the beginning and you watch the review, it feels like he really wants to say that he wants to dislike it because its made by a popular director who likes overusing certain effects or it stars an actor who is known for playing quirky underdog characters.)

@Background Pony #9A2C  
This is why I stopped caring about Doug, I mean aside from this pretty much being a dead horse at this point  
(Seriously count how many people have reviewed Mulan 2020)  
But Doug has already talked about this movie as himself and Disneycember so is there really more he needs to say that hasn’t said before. There’s nothing watching with these live action remake reviews because it’s the same thing over and over again, Doug doesn’t like these movies and never will so why should we care anymore.  
That and I don’t appreciate him talking about these movies AND talking about the originals as well cause it sends mixed messages when you say you don’t like the cartoon and yet you still like it compared to it’s live action counterpart as if the original was always the best.  
(I have the same problem with all of his Jurassic Park reviews)
