YMMV / The Completionist

  • Bizarro Episode: The time when Jirard completed Breaking Bad. His rating? Murder the Intern-it.
  • Broken Base: Greg's departure. On one hand, there are fans that feel like show can never recover and the Greg was the main source of comedy, while there are others that weren't bothered by his departure, feeling that Jirard can easily hold the show up without Greg, or are even glad Greg is gone, if only to try to get some of the more vocal of the former to shut up.
    • Jirard basically also stating that because Greg is now gone, there will not be any references to the running jokes he and Greg used (the "Old Man Stichez" joke, "BEARS!", and of course, "BUT BEARDMAN!!") has upset some fans too.
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: The intro theme and the cover of "I Believe I Can Fly", during the inFAMOUS review stand out.
  • Discredited Meme: "BEARS!" in the Banjo-Tooie episode, so much so that Jirard forbids Greg from saying it. Most of Greg's commentary during the episode is complete Loophole Abuse of this until Jirard ultimately goads him into it at the end.
    • His review of Five Nights at Freddy's further emphasizes this. Even with Jirard slightly goading Greg into saying it, Greg doesn't say "BEARS" once during the review. Although a picture of Banjo's head is briefly 'shopped on top of Freddy Fazbear's
  • Ear Worm: Happens pretty much every time music gets featured on the show. Especially the intro theme.
  • Harsher in Hindsight:
    • In light of Greg's departure and his falling out with Jirard, this portion of the Mega Man X3 episode has become this.
    • Greg's lines in his "death" scene for the Gunstar Heroes review's opening skit are a bit... uncomfortable for pretty much the same reason.
  • He Panned It, Now He Sucks:
    • He (And Caddicarus) were into hot water when they negatively reviewed Heart of Darkness, a game that is, best case scenario (for them), a Cult Classic. To save face, the "execution" he promised in the following episode turned out to be closer to a Viking Funeral.
    • During the review for Aladdin (Capcom), Jirard, Dodger, and especially Greg trashed Aladdin (Virgin Games) as being inferior and not a good game, which made quite a few people angry. Later Jirard and Dodger (Greg had left by this point) gave the game a proper review and admitted they had been to hard on it, but still felt the Capcom game was superior.
  • Just Here For Greg: A lot of people watch the show for Greg to the point where Jirard's review of Breaking Bad is one of the least popular episodes of the show just because Greg isn't in it.
    • With Greg leaving the show on February 25th, 2015, many fans consider his departure the show's Jump the Shark moment.
  • Never Live It Down: In-Universe, Jirard didn't save the aliens. Funny thing is, if you go back and watch the footage carefully, he actually did.
  • Nightmare Fuel: The Five Nights at Freddy's video, despite the Nightmare Retardant in the form of Greg, is still terrifying. It even has a warning at the beginning...
  • Spiritual Licensee: To an extent, this is a retooled continuation of Until We Win.
  • Unpopular Popular Character: A lot of people like Greg the best out of all the guys in the show. Jirard himself is Vitriolic Best Friends with him and other guys featured in the show don't really like him much.
  • Woobie: Jirard is implied to be this in his Secret of Mana review, where he claims that it is better to play the game with friends but the only problem is you have to have friends in the first place.
    • This became Harsher in Hindsight now that him and Greg have had their falling out and are not friends anymore.
