Hilariously, I think Obscurus Lupa and the others completely tossed the creator of this video under the bus recently.

Good video, but it's a little dry at places. Maybe if you put some rock music in the background?

The story about the fan giving the drawing actually made me really sad.

I forgot about that "How I Quit My Job" Video... of course Doug would quit in the most obnoxious, undignified way possible.

It's still kind of amazing to me how much better Lindsay Ellis' content is than Doug's, as well as Rap Critic and Todd in The Shadows. I remember back in the Nostalgia Chick days, watching her LOTR videos and marvelling at how much more insightful and engaging the content was than regular Nostalgia Critic. That was when I had something of a reality check and stopped looking at NC with rose coloured glasses.

Damn it breaks my heart to realize a group of people I spent most of my 20's watching were such horrible people behind the scenes. Thank you for helping shed some light on this.

This is honestly a "never meet your heroes" situation, if you can forgive the cliche. Especially with Walker, the person you see on-screen isn't them in real life.

40+ people: accuse them of bad management, abuse, bullying, sexism and repeated sexual assaults with proof and testimonies

Well.

I used to watch the Nostalgia Critic. Then I found Red Letter Media and never went back.

When #ChangetheChannel first came around, I just didn't want to believe it since I absolutely loved the Nostalgia Critic videos. But after hearing about the Jewwario incident (which I was NOT aware of when I first learned about this), I unsubscribed immediately. I thought Doug and Rob were decent human beings because of their parents and being a family unit but I cannot excuse them anymore. Thanks for making this and helping some of us truly see the light. #Changethechannel

The Dimensioneer

"Malcolm and Tamara haven't had any bad experiences." That's because they are PAID ACTORS. They're not nice to Malcolm and Tamara because they WANT to. They're doing it out of FEAR of getting sued and getting their company shut down. Channel Awesome only cares about THEMSELVES!

I started losing interest in Nostalgia Critic after his Osmosis Jones video, but this documentary and MisAnthroPony's analysis of the Deadpool 2 review were the final nails in the coffin. Very informative documentary, good sir. The music in the original worked fine, it just needed the volume turned down and balanced better so it didn't drown out the video clips.

Don’t hate the former contributors. Hate Channel Awesome.

Doug Walker calling anyone "Passable" is such a level of irony I can't even come up with an accurate comparison.....I dunno, a victim of the Black Plague calling a toddler a walking germ factory?

The Shock Rock

I made a big ass decision that I didn't know would even be like or feel like one: I unsubbed from Channel Awesome and I removed the channel's vids from being recommended to me. I genuinely grew attached to the Nostalgia Critic a year before he took that break and came back and been with his whole run ever since. The people involved seem very likable, and I don't hold any ill-will towards the cast, but I can't let what happened to all those other content creators slide without a sincere, heart-felt apology from everyone involved. Thanks for coming to my TED Talk.

Monitors of Decorum & Decency

The level of arrogance, and hubris, is so extreme and prevalent, with this trio of imbeciles from CA. Apparently, Doug Walker is the character being acted, and the Nostalgia Critic is the real Doug. A toxic, angry, small li'l man.

SMG4's SuperFan

This documentary is one of the best things I’ve ever seen. I didn’t really care about the music, I just ignored it. I really enjoy how you went through the entire history of CA. It’s amazing to see the rise and fall of a titan. Surprisingly there wasn’t a mention of the whole Spoony thing. Since he was one of the first to leave CA.

My god, has it ever been revealed which producer threw away the fans drawing? I find that as reprehensible as anything else in here.

emm cee

TBH I've never found Doug funny or interesting and only knew about him because of watching Todd, Rap Critic and Lindsay, who present their ideas in a much more creative and intellectual way.
