** 3 years after the movie. Blip.tv was shut down after Maker, the company that own Channel Awesome, was bought by ''Disney''. The results were a mix of inconvenient to absolutely tragic ends to all the shows on Blip as they all tried to either migrate to Youtube so they could deal with their half-assed copyright claims and takedowns, or stop their shows all together and do something else. ''The danger that To Boldly Flee warned everyone has come true, and will continue to come true, so long as big corporations continue to buy into themselves!''

* The demise of [[spoiler:Mechakara, Zod, and Turrell]] was heartbreaking, they were all very amusing,if not lovable characters (well, [[spoiler: Mechakara in his own, [[TheComicallySerious unfunny way]]]]), who even had some dramatic potential. It helps that they perished while [[spoiler: quoting Shakespeare together, as if they were friends. "[[FamousLastWords To be]]...[[FaceDeathWithDignity Or not]]...[[LargeHam TO BE!]]]]

* On Spoony's commentary, he reveals that those reviewers who took a trip to Washington DC to talk to government staff about the SOPA/PIPA acts left incredibly disillusioned. Basically, they discovered that no matter how much they argued about Fair Use until they were blue in the face, our government ''will eventually find a way to end your website'' even if these acts are not perfect at the moment. They'd just create a new bill after that fails! The critics could win the battle but lose the war. With this in mind, you realize that the addition of the political commentary in ''ToBoldlyFlee'' isn't just due to Doug being butt-hurt- these were included because of real problems Channel Awesome was facing. ''This'' was the other big reason Doug decided to end the Critic, and contributed a lot to the evolution of what the site could now become after this movie! The whole feeling that there are people out there who are guaranteed to defeat you dampens your soul!

*** It even becomes ''meta'' when RealitySubtext slips in, as this was filmed around the time the group went to protest SOPA and came back detested by the experience.

* While he fully admits to everything they say being true, Critic breaking down when nobody trusts him and laying shit down on the line. Even ''{{Phelous}}'' is giving him a look of pity by the end of this speech:
