Recap / The Nostalgia Critic Editorial 1

Release: February 12, 2013

Focus: The Twilight franchise.

Tagline: Don't act like it hasn't crossed your mind...

This editorial contains examples of:

  • Call-Back: While Critic notes that the Twilight series is very poor in quality, he says he has seen worse.
  • It's Popular, Now It Sucks: Invoked by the Critic, who notes that the main reason why everyone hates the franchise so much is that because despite the quality of its story and characters, it's very popular among girls and young women.
  • "Seinfeld" Is Unfunny: Critic compares the popularity and controversies of the Twilight series to how people reacted when The Simpsons, Andrew "Dice" Clay and Madonna were considered notorious in their heydays.
  • Your Vampires Suck: Critic notes that while there are many different interpretations of vampires and their legends, many people have the problem with Edward's "sparkle".
  • Unintentionally Unsympathetic: One of the biggest complaints, he agrees with is that some of the characters (with the exception of Jacob and Bella's father) are pretty unlikable especially Bella.
