    Welcome back, NC. Welcome back.

    I couldn't agree more. Welcome back to the chair Doug. Also, I'm really glad the cast of Demo Reel could stay as well. I think they add some more comedy to the show. I was laughing in most of the skits, lol. Can't wait to see what else you have planned. :)

    Doug, the new sketches are funny at times, but please don't rely too heavily on them. It'd be a real, real tragedy if NC fell into the same downward spiral as Family Guy, relying on sight gags and cutaways every few minutes. The "fake commercial" was kind of jumping the shark, dude. Other than that, pure hilarity.
  • Xephon0930  - I Dun Mind
    I thought that the whole segment whilst slightly distracting was funny as all hell. The same temptation can be said for all potential re-curring gags. But I can see where you're coming from. Let's just hope that the much less demanding 2-week schedule is all Doug needs to avoid making the same mistakes.
  • pomaflah
    I also loved the "Chia Child" sketch. But who is the girl? She was in Suburaban Knights also. Is she a cousin? Next-door neighbor? Sister? Aunt? Daughter? Niece? Demon? Magic gun? WHO IS SHE???
  • mip
    yeah, he needs to make new mistakes! ;)

    I think the show is even better with his friends.
  • Deadly Sinner
    He has always used sketches in the Nostalgia Critic. The only differences is that they have a bit better production values and he uses other actors.
  • Kyokkai
    I also hope he doesn't overdo the sketches, there's absolutely no need to include them in EVERY episode after all.

    That said I DO like the actors and I think they're doing just fine.
  • mip
    In comparison to a movie about having a kid grow up in your back yard, it's pretty hard to view anything as jumping the shark.
  • GrenMonk2
    That Reloaded DVD's looking pretty good, even for a farewell that's been retconned! Also, glad to see the DR actors got more parts.
  • pomaflah
    You need a theme song. By the way, I'm glad the Demo Reel actors still have jobs. They were really good. It wasn't their fault Demo Reel wasn't.
  • TheGodEmperor
    Demo Reel WAS good, but too many mouth breathers wanted it to only be funny when it wasn't supposed to just be comedy.
  • GrenMonk2
    Explain to me Tom Collins' motivations for wanting to destroy Demo Reel and I might believe that, because that was the biggest hole of the entire story for me.
  • dennett316
    avatar
    He wanted to take them down because they were Sweding movies without being a part of the official Sweding organisation he ran. It's a minor issue, so he was cartoonishly villainous about it to the point of wanting Donnie dead. This was established pretty early on.
  • GrenMonk2
    So a minor issue is okay as a motivation as long as he's cartoonishly evil? Then why pile on all the serious drama about Donnie's mother's suicide and Donnie overcoming his past career? They needed to pick a tone and stick with it. Even if their goal was a dramedy, Collins' reasons for sending people after them and holding them at gun point for such a small reason makes no sense. As far was the audience knows, SWAG is made up of only a handful of people with absolutely no authority on Sweding, and even if they did, Demo Reel's work has no consequence to them because they're already "the laughing stock of the internet". AND even if the group had released the Blue Patches sequel (which was on the computer but for some reason they feel it's lost forever just because Collins shot the flash drive it was one) and gotten better with time, it would still not have any impact at all on SWAG's efforts, making his motives, actions, and entire character ENTIRELY POINTLESS.
  • THOOM
    avatar
    I agree.
  • Cronodyne
    Right, Demo Reel wasn't supposed to be a comedy. That's why every video was centered around comedic situations with comedically written dialogue and comedic skits.
  • mirrorstorm
    I would have loved Demo reel to tell a smart and involving story and also be funny. Unfortunatly it wasn't enough. It just wasn't enough on both end.
  • mrrubino
    avatar
    Forget Demo Reel. Demo Reel is dead.
    Long live the Last-Year-or-So Critic.

    Welcome back. Bring on the haters wanting to defend these shitty movies! I never even heard of this one... wow... I can only wonder why this wasn't hit sooner. But it goes to show you that your work is not done!
  • jurf-rokstar
    avatar
    Really, you never heard of this one? Granted I did not see it because the trailers and commercials looked stupid.
  • TragicGuineaPig
    avatar
    They totally stole the idea from an episode of Batman: The Animated Series, the one where Poison Ivy gets married and has kids. Horrible mutant plant kids, that is.
  • jurf-rokstar
    avatar
    I saw that episode, I think.
  • Moogletosser
    Difference in opinion always means "hater" now?
  • invock
    Yup. Welcome to the Internet.
  • Drain

    I didn't say that. But sure, if that's how "you" want to put it. :)
  • Kamdan
    What's so nostalgic about reviewing a film that came out last year? Also, having the other acts and "skits" really draws this out. Stick to the original format.
  • Mangakun
    avatar
    The reason he did this movie, in case you haven't seen The Review Must Go On, is because this was the movie that made him realize that the Nostalgia Critic still had something in him. Sure, it's not what he normally does, but he shouldn't have to be tied to just one format that he must go by every review. I thought it was at the very least an entertaining review that shows just what we have in store for us in the future Nostalgia Critic reviews. Besides, he'll probably go back to his normal format next review, so either way, hey, you get some satisfaction out of his return.
  • jz1337
    Did you not watch the review must go on? He pretty much explains why he's doing newer movies.

    Dunno what you're on about the chia parody was wonderful.
  • Sakuradrops
    avatar
    He explains this in the Reveiw Must Go On video, he said that it can technically be considered nostalgic since it came out a while ago.
  • ZeroBeatXIII
    avatar
    What are you talking about? You can be nostalgic for something that happened the other day; do you even know what it means?
    The old formula got stale, having access to newer films and more skits (not to mention less running jokes, memes and cameos) offers a fresher take on these videos. If he brought it back the way it was, I wouldnt watch it.
  • TheShak2012  - oooooh
    god the skits during the review are aaaawful, especially that orphan shit.
  • 04rlane  - F you dude
    Calling Mr TheShak2012 shut up and enjoy the critic is the master and creator of these shows he knows what he is doing, and that skit was just another way he could joke about how awful the movie was if you didn't notice
  • GrenMonk2
    Woah, calm down buddy. No need to go all fanboy on us.
  • salpfokiteen
    I was going to buy NC Reloaded. But, fuck Egoraptor. Fuck him with a stick covered in broken glass. That motherfucker talentless asshole. Fuck him.
  • jurf-rokstar
    avatar
    NO, Egoraptor only sucks when he is with Jon Tron, which seems to be all the time nowadays. Them to together make Tim and Eric seem good by comparison. And Tim and Eric suck.
  • atypicaloracle
    avatar
    Although it has little bearing on this review, I must concur: Gaming Grumps is extremely terrible.
  • ecyor0
    avatar
    uh... Game Grumps is literally just Egoraptor and JonTron playing video games, hanging out and having stupid fun, then uploading it on youtube. It is not *meant* to be cleverly written comedy. It never was.
  • jurf-rokstar
    avatar
    Game Grumps is the result of trying to hard. There are tons of better "let's play" channels.
  • ritewing
    No game grumps is the result of not trying at all. They are less about their let's plays and more about being stupid idiots saying random shit which is where their 'humor' comes into play. Like most let's plays, they are a great time killer rather than a form of quality entertainment. Which is youtube in a nut shell. regarding NC, Doug is alright with what he does. It is Rob that holds the show together and has the best humor of what the show can offer.
  • OneTrickGuy
    calling someone else a "talentless asshole" while putting the Nostalgia Critic on a pedestal....
  • Mangakun  - Heck yeah!
    avatar
    Great to have you back, NC.

    The new opening is ate badass is I say so myself. Really puts on a new mood for your show.

    Huh. I wasn't expecting this kind of timid beginning right after that new opening theme, but I suppose it kind of makes sense with it being the month of V-day- aaannnnd you just killed your neighbors cat. ._. Never mind.

    Aww, think of all the poor 17 year old orphans that could have been adopted and have a loving home if it weren't for those damned kids that grow in the backyard. D:

    Uhhh, well I guess they're... really desperate to... get a kid no matter what the cost...?

    I really love these actors you got for the show. xD They really bring a new light and humor to it.

    Man, these parents... These are the kinds of parents that I hope should only exist in fiction, but I know really exist in real life. These are the parents that I have no respect for. -.-

    Man... Just a terrible movie overall. I'm sorry you had to watch this. ._. But at the same time I'm not since it was such a great review. xD Great job as always, Critic, and I'm looking forward to more of you soon.
  • LordNifty
    As long as there are no more pet-killing jokes.

    I know! It' soooo awesome. So many people love him. Enough that he has a cameo in an Anime.



    P.S. His walls a bit of a different color!!!!

    He has a cameo in an anime? Thanks for being specific.

  • Moreno X  - to OtakuboyT
    As it seems. NC's return really got everyone pumped up even outside of this site. Seriously, there's a YouTube clip posted by JesuOtaku. It’s an anime clip from The Unlimited- Hyoubu Kyousuke (I never heard of it) that has NC and AVGN in it! JesuOtaku even thinks it's them. Check it out:

    http://www.youtube.com/ watch?v=uNUfk3R157U

    The clip of the episode (according to Wikipedia) aired yesterday. Coincidence? I say Plot-Hole!

    I think they were there to fight an epic Critic Vs. Nerd Kaiju battle over Japan.

    Welcome back!

    Then again, NC's return really is the best thing everyone is pumped up for. Looks insane to me but hey who am I to digress?

    Welcome back.
  • Freyzi  - Aww yeah!

    Signed up just for this! We love you Doug! Man am I so glad you're back.
    I only discovered you around the spring of 2012 and when you quit I was so sad... BUT NOW YOUR BACK!
  • Bloodrealm
    Same with me, but November 2011.

    Hooray! You're back! TWO THUMBS UP!

    Welcome Back, Nostalgia Critic!
  • Shlecky
    Imagine how the audience claps when they see the sequel to a beloved film when they see the title screen.
  • Shlecky
    And I'll add that I'm glad that you didn't have to let the Demo Reel actors go after that finished, though I supposed that their contracts might have forced you to pay them for the year (just a guess, don't take it personally).

    Welcome Back Critic. you have been missed. but for no longer
  • zUkUu

    One thing tho: PLEASE PAINT THE WALL! That white is kinda disturbing the balance. That yellowish was always part of my vision of your character. White just contradicts, and doesn't add to the image.
  • dascottjr
    avatar
    I like the white wall. It makes everything feel clean and new. A clean slate, if you will. That's just my two cents.
  • Ronny
    Can't we have the old title cards back? It just seems wrong without them :/
  • Rykel22
    god i love the "the review must go on"metal track

    This is just what I needed; a half an hour of laughing at the stupid reasoning of an airhead couple!

    Yay catching this before going to school, glad to have the critic back ^^

    Yay.

    This is going to hurt isn't it??
  • Dr Cowley  - Yay
    Great to see the critic back. Was Baby Geniuses 3 released in honor of you?

    Hope you take a crack at that one

    Thank you very much, Nostalgia Critic and thank you much more, Doug Walker...
  • zachian  - just made an account to rate this up.
    I am so excited to see nostalgia critic back, and can't wait to see more. I am sad to see demo reel go, but I'd pick the critic over it any time.
  • Tdi7457  - Welcome back
    avatar
    Great to see you again, NC. I just hope the other two actors don't really make frequent appearances. NC was a lone wolf, it's weird seeing these two.
  • Chaosdirge  - The lone wolf thing.
    avatar
    The Nostalgia Critic kind of shaped out of the Lone Wolf thing in the previous finale. He started to become more social.. Plus he did cameos with people all the time. I kind of like them being there.

    that said Nice job Doug, it was pretty funny.
  • Moreno X  - to Chaosdirge
    I agree. I don't mind Rachel and Malcolm (and others) make frequent appearances as long as it is done right.

    That Chia Child gag was funny. Hope Doug doesn't do that every episode from this point. But like I said, as long as it is paced/done right, who am I to complaint?

    DON'T YOU TRY TO REPLY TO ME DOUCHEY!

    Actually, I think he plays off them rather well. They were all good actors in the first place, just with not-that-great scripts to work off in Demo Reel. Now that they have some quality to work with, it's actually really funny.

    Does it seem like Doug's production values have gone through the roof with this episode? Everything seems crisper and the animated bits more fluid.
  • oshunanat
    avatar
    They really have. I'm guessing he's now filming these at the studio space that Channel Awesome rented instead of his house. It looks, I quite like it!
  • Tetsu Deinonychus
    avatar
    Yeah, I wasn't expecting this to be quite the same show it was before, anyway. This is Nostalgia Critic 2.0, and so far I like it.

    I'm glad the Demo Reel actors are still there for skit. I'm digging the slicker production values, and the "no cut-off date" rule. And, a theme song and opening sequence is something his show's been needing for awhile. I'm looking forward to more.
  • ZeroBeatXIII
    avatar
    Thatll be all the stuff he bought to make Demo Reel; not to mention filming in a studio compared to his house
  • CWRunner
    It could also be due to the fact that he's doing an episode every two weeks now instead of one week. Definitely more time to put more effort into each show.
