* His TheReasonYouSuckSpeech to all those who enjoy the TakeThatScrappy trope with said characters being killed off. He sums it up in one word: HEARTLESS! He also calls out SethMacFarlane and the producers of ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' for how poorly done Brian's death was, going as far as to note that it is a prime example of the show's slip in quality.

Added DiffLines:

* His WesternAnimation/DrawnTogether review has him more thoroughly debunk the "Anti-Semetic Creator/WaltDisney" rumor than he did in the Family Guy episodes.


Added DiffLines:

*His review of WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo points out the three main fallacies of the show, and he gives several examples that defy these fallacies:
** 1. The show assumes pre-teens are incapable of processing complex drama, which Creator/DonBluth has been producing doing since The80s.
** 2. The show also assumes [[AnimationAgeGhetto teens shouldn't watch cartoons,]] which {{Anime}} soundly debunks.
** 3. [[RuleOfThree The show also assumes]] it's not possible to [[PeriphiaryDemographic create shows that both adults and kids can enjoy,]] which shows like WesternAnimation/GravityFalls and WesternAnimation/PhinneasAndPherb both did.

* Rowdy's epic TheReasonYouSuckSpeech at the end of his review of "[[WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy Not All Dogs Go to Heaven]]", which caps off "Family Guy Month". It's a [[CallBack reference to Quagmire's rant to Brian in "Jerome is the New Black"]].
-->"And so, after a full month of pointing out some of the worst "Family Guy" has churned out, what else is there to say? (shows a picture of Creator/SethMacFarlane; cuts back to Rowdy) Fine, I'll tell you. You have become one of the worst examples of comedy out there. You've not only made all your characters as unlikable as possible, but you do nothing but pile on insult after insult of anyone out there that's more famous than you, and rail against [[WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones nearly every]] [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons TV show]] that paved the way for yours, giving hardly any evidence other than "Trust me, it sucks." Yeah, I insult TV shows, [[ShownTheirWork but I try to back it up with logic]].

* His review of "[[WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy Road to the Multiverse]]" showcases hope that the Disney inspired segment may be a nice throwback.... only for said segment to turn into [[spoiler: Mort getting attacked because he was a jew, a stab at Disney's supposed Anti-Semitism]]. Chris takes a break to yell in his bathroom..... and comes out with a rant that makes the one above seem like a calm rant.

* Declaring that "[[WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy "Family Gay]]" possibly HURT the Gay Rights movement because every gay character in the show was BEYOND stereotypical. Also telling is that he uses ''WillAndGrace'' to show how one gay character can be stereotypical and another can be a StraightGay and a positive example of showing lessons on Gay Rights. He even gives credit to ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'': despite hating the poop and death jokes, he admires that they can use stereotypes to their advantage, unlike ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy''.

** And then, there was his summary of the show at the end, essentially saying that, despite the cheesy effects and acting in ''PowerRangers'' and ''BigBadBeetleborgs'', that there was actual effort and emotion involved, and the characters were sympathetic. On the other hand, he ultimately states that nobody put any effort into ''MaskedRider'' at all.
** His comparison of [[HollywoodNerd Ethan]] from ''MaskedRider'' to Billy from ''PowerRangers'', showing just how well-developed Billy was.

** The ''South Park'' review practically defines the term. He rips TreyParkerAndMattStone a new one citing the bottom 10 episodes of show including "The Return of Chef" (for essentially flipping off Issac Hayes in a colossal JerkAss manner), "Ass Burgers" (even more so when you realize that he has Aspergers), and the incredibly mean-spirited "Stanley's Cup". The latter episode is cited by Chris as Stone and Parker's MoralEventHorizon.
*** At the end, he lists Honorable Mentions such as "Douche and Turd" (Which mocks the US Election System), "Die Hippie Die" (Which advocates the murdering of hippies), and ''anything'' involving Ms. Garrison.

* His review of the TV adaptation of ''BillAndTedsExcellentAdventure'' is a long tirade against executive meddling, going as far as to state that nobody on the production staff put ANY effort into it. He even dug up a clip of Alex Winter admitting the show was crap.

He outright claims that ''Brickleberry'' is the epitome of a trend in adult animation - one that favors gross-out jokes and gore over likeable characters and interesting plots. It's even implied that he blames this trend for the cancellation of ''Futurama''.

* In his review of the infamous and short-lived XFL football league(created by ''VinceMcMahon''), he calls out sports leagues(particularly the NFL) for being hypocrites by attacking the XFL, yet later adopting many of the same things that league was criticized for with no hint of self-awareness. He also defends the XFL, saying that even though he's not surprised that it failed, it still had some good ideas(the skycam, which the NFL itself would later use) and didn't deserve to get as critically thrashed as it did.

* For his 1,000 subscriber special, he decides to review a show that has been consistently requested by fans for a loooong time: ''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants''. Despite having not grown up with the show (he was in college when it debuted in 1999), he gives a relatively unbiased look at it, explaining why people feel the modern episodes don't work as well as the post-movie episodes. Regarding how the show is possibly one of the most-reviewed pieces of animation ever on the internet and how people say those looking too much into the show are taking it seriously, he concludes the review stating that it is perfectly fine for people like WebVideo/TheMysteriousMrEnter and WebVideo/TheCartoonHero to feel that kids deserve better entertainment than what is being produced nowadays on both the show and on TV in general.

** He also goes into why an episode like "One Coarse Meal" doesn't work in a way other reviewers haven't touched yet--kids under 10 watching the episode are expected to have seen or even binged episodes like season 1's "Plankton!" to believe that he really is that evil even though [[VillainDecay he grows less so during the post-movie episodes]], and that isn't a good thing because parents don't expect them to watch TV shows in that sort of way.
