** After leaving Channel Awesome, {{Phelous}} described ''To Boldly Flee'' as "The worst movie in the universe", claiming that the film's [[{{Narm}} attempts at being "serious" while also balancing the comedy didn't work well]] and criticizing its lifting of scenes wholesale from other movies. Phelous also claimed that some people on the site were gossiping about him "half assing" the effects that he was contracted to do for the film, and sent {{Welshy}} to spy on him to ensure that he was doing a good job (which Welshy ended up not doing). His earlier commentary of the film consisted of himself, ObscurusLupa and BradJones making fun of it.

Making occasional backhanded jokes about ''To Boldly Flee'' has also gone on to become a RunningGag in Phelous' reviews.

** Again. Doug's commentary goes into uncomfortable detail about his SanitySlippage (and after filming, was [[http://blip.tv/nostalgiacritic/video-announcement-6083673 shown]] to have lost an unhealthy amount of weight), they had only a week to shoot an involved three hour film which didn't help anyone, Phelan's farewell post revealed that management thought he was half-assing special effects so sent Welshy to spy on him, and [[https://twitter.com/thelindsayellis/status/592558240145244160 Lindsay]] has more than once mentioned a ton of frustration with the lack of professionalism.

** The government official in Part I is Dad!Walker, who played the news reporter in ''WebVideo/SuburbanKnights''.

** On tumblr, Allison and Lewis revealed a lot of the behind the scenes issues. The main ones were the [[http://obscuruslupa.tumblr.com/post/141854564532/apologies-for-asking-so-many-questions-about-tbf script being hard to read]] due to its length, [[http://atopfourthwall.tumblr.com/post/141829591203 too much work expected in such a short]] amount of time and Doug ignoring any advice attempts.

Which even Doug talked about on his commentary, admitting he was so wrapped up in his own problems that he shut everyone out.

** According to his commentary, [[WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment Noah]] ad-libbed various things (Such as the line quoted below) at the end of Dr Insano's scripted lines. Most of the ad-libs were used, but in a case of WhatCouldHaveBeen, one of Spoony's favourite ad-libs ''wasn't'' used & was a crack about the ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'' ending not making any sense.

** Doug & Rob's direction for Noah's performance as Turrell was to [[LargeHam ham it up as much as possible]]. Having watched ''Film/BattlefieldEarth'' to prepare for the role, Noah had noted that JohnTravolta's Terl had two settings - LargeHam & (as Noah describes it) "speaking through clenched teeth" - and learnt the second voice so that he could provide alternate takes in the second voice.

* LyingCreator:
** [[spoiler: Everyone involved said that Ma-Ti would not be addressed, nor would Bhargav appear as Ma-Ti, as he left the site in early 2012. In fact, Ma-Ti, his death, and the existence of his mind within Spoony's are all central plot points, even including footage of Bhargav that, while recorded during Suburban Knights, was never aired before. Ma-ti's voice was done by Rob Walker otherwise.]]

** JesuOtaku and Paw often found themselves standing next to each other in crowd scenes, which led to the {{Running Gag}} of JO always picking him to test her inventions on.
** Most of [[spoiler:Ed!]][=JO's=] lines were embellished by Hope herself, as she was more familiar with ''Anime/CowboyBebop'' characters than Doug and Rob were when they wrote her lines.

* MagnumOpus: Despite only managing to go 44 seconds of commentary before bashing himself, Doug views it as his. He wanted the best send-off possible for the Critic, had the creator/character scene in his head ever since he was a teenager, and the less said about his CreatorBreakdown the better.
