I tried the show but I don't think it's that good, it's kinda average from how hard they try to be something else other than Sonic the Hedgehog. I prefer the Adventure of Sonic the Hedgehog, yes the animation(and art) is not good but it was funny and it didn't try to hide it

Insert this show's part in the Nostalgia Critic's review of The Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog here.
said at 1:09 PM on Sat Jul 27 2013
@Mrguy22594 Ugh...I like this show and all, I really do, but that was honestly one of the worst "reviews" I've ever seen. Heck even the commentary for it was more of a review than the actual video, He was incredibly biased and he overhyped this show way too much. This show is fun to watch and all and it has plenty of awesome moments, but it's not the amazing dark gritty flawless masterpiece everyone makes it out to be. I literally saw someone compare it to Citizen Kane just because of that video, I'm sorry but how are the two even comparable in the slightest? To even compare the two means that you most likely haven't seen either one.

...and I don't care what anyone says, I still love Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog even to this day. It's not flawless, but it's really energetic and incredibly entertaining. Long John Baldry's Robotnik completely steals the show. Although Jim Cummings' more serious version of Robotnik is pretty awesome and intense in his own way.

But yeah, Nostalgia Critic has only gone downhill since then in my opinion and is downright unwatchable these days. I guess it's fine that he still has fans and I try to respect other people's opinions but good lord some people just take it way too far and mention him in places where it isn't even warranted.

Blegh, rant over.

@Metabad So just because he hates nonsensical shows like Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog means he's only gone downhill? SEEMS LEGIT....

@Metabad What? Orson Welles' legendary film gets compared to this? That has "idiot logic" written all over it. There's no comparing the two.

If you want a proper anime/cartoon and film comparison, see the comparisons of Satoshi Kon's Perfect Blue (check the film out btw) with Darren Aronofsky's Black Swan.

@Metabad Sorry for respoding to such an older comment, but I'd like to address something.

Note that this is the "character" of the critic that is saying this. I always look at the character of the Nostalgia Critic and the actual guy behind it [Doug Walker] to be two totally different beings. The Critic is always an over-the-top and condescending and blows everything out of proportion. If you are taking his comments as seriously as you are, then you are falling RIGHT into his trap, as many other people have followed you into (this review, for example).

Now take a look at the man behind it and exclude the Critic: he's much more down to earth and does bring out completely fair criticisms behind his true feelings, even if you don't always agree with him. If you look into the commentary of the review in which Doug and his brother review it honest-to-god, I guarantee that you will be COMPLETELY surprised.

As for the new episodes: I love them. The main reason of that being that Doug Walker has put more of his own persona into the Nostalgia Critic, and is now going into more detail as the Critic why something works and why something else doesn't work. If you don't like them... ...then dammit, I'm just sorry for you.

Okay, my rant is over. Take it or leave it.

@DreamMaster08X It's fine, to be honest I only saw the responses to my comment now. I guess I should have made it clearer that I felt NC was going downhill for plenty of other reasons as well, that's just the exact moment I noticed I wasn't enjoying his work nearly as much as I used to.

In all fairness I do know that Doug Walker is supposed to be playing a wacky character that says over-exaggerated things, my main problem is when fans take every word he says as gospel especially with the comments that I feel he takes too far and then when they quote said condescending comments as a valid reason not to watch something or to claim that anyone who even casually likes said show or movie that he reviews is stupid...that's pretty much where I draw the line. It happens far more than I'd like admittedly, but my beef is more so with the rabid fanbase than with the NC himself and I've had a few bad run-ins with said fanbase, still I guess I do let those kinds of comments get to me much more often than I should.

Also I did see his commentary, I actually have seen a lot of his commentaries hence why I brought it up in the first place and I tend to more often than not enjoy those more than the reviews themselves. I've said to PsychicVoiceSpy through PM and I'll say it here; I don't hate Doug Walker at all, from what I've seen of the videos he's made outside of the Nostalgia Critic show, he seems like a pretty good guy in general.

I'm not sure if he was making these newer revamped episodes by the time I made that comment, but for a while I feel that he got really stale. In fact I think he said that for a while he even felt like he was going through the motions in one of his commentaries, if I remember correctly, he said that the Pebble and the Penguin and Pound Puppies reviews pretty much felt like the exact same reviews to him.

As for the newer revamped episodes that you're referring to...well, a problem I personally have with them is that he started them up right after he said he was going to end the show which feels a little bit desperate to me. Although I did hear that his replacement show didn't do too well, so that could just be the fanbase that really wanted the old show back, I'm not 100% sure on those details.

Although I do agree that some of them feel more like actual rational reviews compared to the older stuff he was putting out and it's a lot better because of it, that said...his sense of humor just isn't my thing anymore. I liked him when he started out but the way he still insists on shrieking the way he does really grates on my nerves whenever he does it and he's still way too over-the-top for me, to the point of still being borderline unwatchable. If you like it though then more power to you, don't let me stop you from enjoying them.

Honestly, the only TGWTG reviewers I really watch anymore are Phelous and the Cinema Snob, and that's really only because their humor is more up my alley than NC's is and I don't really even need to go to the site to watch their reviews.

So yeah, I apologize if I misinterpreted myself in my original post. I do understand your points and agree with them to an extent, thanks for letting me explain myself. Even if I did go on a lot longer than I thought I would...

@Fulgore2005 Oh yeah I heard that Darren Aronofsky actually bought the film rights specifically to remake a scene from Perfect Blue, although I can't remember if it was specifically for Black Swan or not, but either way it still sounds like it was a huge influence for him.

I'll definitely give it a watch if I ever find it.

@Metabad I think it's rather crazy to have a gigantic out-of-topic discussion on the Nostalgia Critic, but I'm going to put my final thoughts on this whole thing. Doug explained in his video that announced the return of the NC that he felt that he ended to show way too soon and that he could come up with better, more creative ways to keep each episode fresh. And that he had a lot of fun doing the show and missed it himself. Things such as having two weeks to make each review along with the editorials and actors so he's not just constantly talking to himself or having an obnoxious crossover do seem to have helped make the show less stale. And yes, his new show wasn't doing very well, but I'd say he didn't just do the revamp out of desperation.

The main thing that bothers me is that he often does get a little too over the top like you said, and another is that he's often offensive and obviously doesn't care if vulgarity or other things annoy people. The whole bit in his Eight Crazy Nights where he calls Adam Sandler and mocks him by sarcastically comparing his Whitey voice to Mel Blanc got downright tasteless and unpleasant. If it weren't for the fact that some of his jokes are mean-spirited and tasteless, trying to be offensive for the sake of being offensive when the offensive joke or statement is by no means a well-written joke to begin with, some of the over-blown skits, and on occasion his screaming... I would love the show. As it is, it ranges from dull, to fine, to awesome. I thought his reviews of The Shining mini-series and The Last Airbender in particular was very entertaining. But then there are several that have drawn-out awkward skits and tasteless humor that falls flat... so I'm mixed. I love the show, and then I feel lukewarm about the show.

Anyway, this is the only time I'll make a long public comment about the Nostalgia Critic. I just wanted to give my full opinion on the current state of his show.

@PsychicVoiceSpy Yeah, you're right. Thanks for putting him backing out of ending the show into perspective for me though, I honestly didn't know.

DreamMaster08X, if you feel like continuing the discussion at all then feel free to PM me.

@Metabad I will admit I was pretty annoyed at how people thrash that 1990s Tom and Jerry film left and right because of his review.

I liked the film and I will say it is waaay better than those cash in DTVs that gets made every few years

you know, Since finding out Jaleel White is Sonic, I've noticed that this version of sonic does sound a bit more... well, perhaps he's had an Ebonics lesson or two.

Nothing wrong with that, i find it works for him.

Surely, the casting of Jaleel White, better known for playing Steve Urkel, as Sonic must have been some joke on the part of DiC, aware of Sonic's characterization of "cool hedgehog"

@NCZ It no doubt was, and yet - still my favorite Sonic voice to this day. Heck, he IS Sonic to me. *nods*
