Can someone edit some of these character entries, they seem a bit out of nowhere and personal (e.g. On "Malcolm Ray's Characters: "...100% looked out for Rachel especially when Doug/Rob were focusing too much on her bust...")? I mean, when did this ever happen, either in character or out? I'd edit it myself but I'm just a lurker with no experience editing stuff on here.

Turbo commentary. They were going on about her Rita boobs (and in Cat in the Hat commentary, Doug was saying "you know Evilina went through puberty" when Rachel ever turns around) and Malcolm was the one who asked if she was actually comfortable.

Just watched the Power Ranger: Turbo commentary, yet to watch the Cat in the Hat one, and whoever wrote that entry was obviously misinterpreting what was said. The Rita conversation was a short one, and not even one that was focused on her own breasts, and Malcolm was asking if it was literally uncomfortable. Even then the entry still sounds a bit malicious and biased. I'd ask again if someone can please edit it and keep to being neutral on such matters.

Okay, I'll say he's always been supportive of her and take out the Doug/Rob bit.

I'm Looking for a song It was played in the "North" review... when Elijah Wood's parents are still catatonic, their lawyer claims that "the defense rests" prompting the NC to announce that the movie made the ground-breaking achievement of concocting "The Worst JOKE!"
  • fire-works*
  • clips of people cheering*
  • MUSIC*
now... what song was played during those celebrations? I bet it's from a sports-movie.

Would I be justified in saying that the NC codified the Video Review Show genre? Others like AVGN or Spoony predated him, but the NC essentially made them a genre unto themselves.

What exactly was the deal with his parents? Sorry if someone already asked this, but I kept reading the whole page and didn't find a complete explanation on the fact. Could anyone be so kind as to point me at somewhere I could find the whole thing? Thanks in advance :)

There's not really an entire explanation in-show. He just has this kinda running joke of having a really horrendous childhood, complete with dreadful parents. But in the Old vs. New Willy Wonka, there was a kindergarten drawing of them as monsters. In Alaska, something apparently really bad happened when he mouthed off to his Dad for the last (and probably first) time. In Nickcoms he said he was raised as a girl for a short period and he still calls his mom his world in the Chick's TLC review.

Who's posting at least 25 new entries every day these days, why do they all have to do with past episodes instead of recent ones (which leads me to believe there's a group doing nothing but marathoning N Cs all day long), and how come most of them have anything to do with how the Critic is fanservice?! Fanservice is the last thing I focus on when watching the show!

Periphery Demographic, there are probably girls (and some men) out there who only care about the Critic suffering. They could be the ones adding those.

Does this need a Running Gag page? The entry takes up more than my whole screen!

I was thinking we should make it stricter. Something that happens twice shouldn't be labeled as a Running Gag

Would anyone object to me making a page for Doug Walker? He's got more than a few tropes relating to just him around the wiki.
emeriin

I don't think that would be too bad, just as long as you don't fill it with out-of-verse "omg so pretty!" (erm, if you're that way inclined >.<). For one thing we're cutting down on actress/actor perving, and for another people have a tendency to go... psychotically obsessive with him. Did that make sense to you?

So he feels that Action Girl is better and that Real Women Never Wear Dresses? Well, I guess that's somewhat classy, but I'm pretty sure Peach is not a bad character simply because she's a Distressed Damsel. I'm not sure what's wrong or not dynamic about a sweet and gentle female character in a story, just saying.
emeriin

I think it's case of Author Appeal as well as a bit of Real Women Never Wear Dresses. Remember in the "Top Eleven Villain Songs" where he said he would happy for psychotic singing ladies to kill him?

Hey guys, how about a Did Not Do The Research page? It'll satisfy both the people who love adding that stuff and the people who don't want nitpicking on the main page.

After that thing's deletion a while back, it looks like people are adding examples again...should they be?
SpellBlade
02:55:08 PM Apr 4th 2011
I say delete them, since DNDTR is an index and not an example list.
Hermiethefrog
02:07:10 PM Apr 6th 2011
Aren't examples of DNDTR supposed to go in the YMMV tab? I know that that's where they put them for the Irate Gamer anyways. (Knows that this is probably a bad example)

I'd delete them and add a % % "No examples please, they tend to take over the page" sign under the big entry about the fuck-ups list.

Does anyone know why The Room section on the Crowning Moment of Funny page is a tiny trope page?
DRCEQ
09:57:37 AM Dec 13th 2010
Maybe because it really doesn't have that much going for it?
DuosAngel
02:41:54 PM Dec 13th 2010
I meant the folder for The Room on the Nostalgia Critics CMOF page. Sorry I wasn't clearer.
DRCEQ
04:30:42 PM Dec 13th 2010
I know what you meant. If you expected that section to be chock full of tropes and examples filled to the brim... well.... there's just not that many.
DuosAngel
02:31:38 AM Dec 14th 2010
No I expected it to be the same as the rest of the examples. No tropes, just listing the best jokes from that episode. Hell, one of the trope examples in the folder is Crowning Moment of Funny. I haven't been to every Crowning Moment of Funny page on the site but I'm sure it's not supposed to break down tropes used in a single episode.

I really want to create a Best Episode Crowner for this series, but I'm afraid it might get out of hand. What do you guys think? Also, are there any specific requirements for creating a Best Episode Crowner (i.e. the series has to be over or something)?
Shota
12:50:22 PM Dec 5th 2010
Not sure about the guidelines, but there are countless episodes already, and while I can name several contenders, there is a ton of room for flame wars.
emeriin
12:54:26 PM Dec 5th 2010
I think it would be a pretty bad idea. As he said, it would create a ton of flame wars that nobody really needs.
batfan

edited by batfan
I see what you're saying, but how does the crowner format even lend itself to flamewars? The worst that could happen would be a bunch of episodes being added that wouldn't get supported and would end up at the bottom, and there's even a feature that lets you ignore those entries. The only really flaming I could see would be episodes having a bunch of thumbs up and thumbs down, but it's not like there aren't plenty of functional crowners out there like that. Still, like I said, I could see it getting out of hand, so unless I get a few more replies saying it's not a bad idea I won't bother.

"Anyone who hates Doug for being a single nerd in his mom's basement has no idea that he's moved twice into two actual houses in suburban Illinois, and is now engaged."

I'm almost certainly confusing it with some other reviewer on TGWTG, but I thought he did live with his parents (pre-The Room/The Tommy Wiseau Show).
emeriin
12:34:18 PM Nov 27th 2010
He and Rob did (and their new house is just as awesome as the last one, lucky bastards), so that "moving twice" should be corrected, but the other stuff is good. They had their own rooms, so no basement-living, and I believe they've had their girlfriends-turned-fiancées for at least a year or two years.

Are Fanfic Recs of Nostalgic Critic valid? Because there are various spinoff like the Nostalgic Chick.
emeriin
10:32:52 AM Nov 26th 2010
Maybe it's me having a headache, but I can't quite understand what you mean. You can go to TGWTG's fanfic section here, where there's both smutty and general fics of the Critic.
NotJMKeynes
04:18:26 PM Nov 26th 2010
I mean, I want to recommend a fic, on FF.net, that is based on the Nostalgic Critic, but doesn't have their characters, it's a fic that review other fics, and has nothing to with TNC, only have the same format, and had TNC as inspiration. I wonder if I can recommend as a FF.net equivalent to TGWTG or in the Web Original section.
emeriin
04:22:47 PM Nov 26th 2010
Ohhh, I get it now. Recommending it on Web Original is probably your best bet. :)

I'd have removed the comment about the leopard seal being too big, but I thought I'd post it here.

Hate to break it to whoever added it as an example of "Did not do the research" but while Leopard Seal is pretty big, it's not that much bigger than a human and it certainly doesn't have a mouth that can fit a whole penguin in there. I'd say the thing's size is proportional to a porpoise or baby whale. In other words, I think NC's criticism stands, it's pretty big.
