I'm going to start this review (and it's going to be short, so don't get nervous) by saying that I like Spoony's work, and that I always look forward to his new material. He's one of my favorite internet personalities, and the amount of work he puts into each review is really impressive. That said, I think he needs to get over himself. Now, I can sense that some of you probably just immediately skipped to the comment section to rebuke me for saying this, but hear me out: Spoony doesn't seem to know how to get out of character. Another reviewer already mentioned this, so I won't harp on it for long. Other internet reviewers have stated that Spoony is not nearly as angry and mean-spirited as his character; why does he feel the need to be like that all the time? From what I've heard, he can be a really nice guy. He seems determined to alienate his fanbase. I'm not talking about his criticisms of things his fans might care about — it's just his opinion (man), and it's totally fine to disagree with him. I'm talking about his tendency to beat a dead horse: if he doesn't like it, he'll admit it and tell you why... over and over again. He also has a tendency to mock the fans of things he doesn't like. That last thing really bothers me. It's okay to admit you don't like something, but to judge other people for liking it is going too far. I mean, a lot of the time he's joking, but when he's out of character (sort of?), he continues to do so, even questioning the intelligence of people who like something he doesn't. This is a quality that can really hurt a reviewer's reputation, and rightfully so. That doesn't mean I want Spoony's reputation to diminish; like I said, I like the guy, and I'm glad he's popular. To me, it seems like Spoony has gotten sucked into his popularity and image. It's like he can't not be the mean-spirited, vitriolic critic he plays, for whatever reason. It's none of my business, but ever since he and Scarlett broke up he's gotten angrier and more petty (seriously; read his Twitter feed), and it seems like he just dwells on it and acts childish at times. But it's none of my business, and you're totally right to criticize me for bringing it up. To sum it up: Spoony is fun and enjoyable to watch, and I'm still a big fan. I just wish he wouldn't be so afraid to act like himself.
