    Oh wow he's still making videos? I haven't watched his stuff in probably 10 years.

      Hehe, yeah, that was my reaction when I found his channel a few months ago. AVGN is still making videos as well, it's pretty cool to see how both these guys have grown. Channel Awesome is actually...

      Channel Awesome is actually a very cool movie-review style channel now. I watch his videos when I just want to chill a bit. This one is especially good though and I especially liked the part about BoJack Horseman (which I recently posted about).

        I don't know that I can sweep everything under the rug.

          Yeah I was about to point that out... For me it's a combination of all that drama going off and the fact that I personally don't find the guy enjoyable. Back at university - hell yeah Nostalgia...

          For me it's a combination of all that drama going off and the fact that I personally don't find the guy enjoyable. Back at university - hell yeah Nostalgia Critic and AVGN was my jam! But now as a thirty-something whose attitudes and tastes have evolved over the years I can't really sit and watch the two. It feels a bit like watching children's television.

          But it's cool if someone else enjoys their work I suppose. There are far worse content creators on YouTube than the two.

            Maybe their old work. I also get annoyed at it. But more recent videos are just pretty chill reviews. I liked AVGN's review of breaking bad for example: https://youtu.be/5EOmNXjvBNQ

              I mean, yeah - that is James Rolfe just gushing about Breaking Bad to the camera, it's a bit different to... uh... AVGN.... But honestly I'm saving that because seeing James genuinely excited...

              But honestly I'm saving that because seeing James genuinely excited about breaking bad is dope. Thanks for sharing, my dude 👍

                Right?! He made me want to rewatch the series, such a great and heartwarming review of the series.
