There must've been a better way to close it out.
Ok, I have to be honest. I do in fact, like the newer Nostalgia Critic episodes and was glad when Doug Walker brought him back. I didn't even mind the fact that Demo Reel ended after five episodes since the last episode was still a good way to close the series. What DO I mind then?
The fact that Blue Patches wasn't what closed Demo Reel out. Instead we got The Review Must Go On, which had good acting, particularly from Doug, but also a clumsy way to bridge the two together, and just a downright mean spirited idea that everything Jimmy and his crew went through was all a ploy to make the Critic learn a lesson. A lesson which he never learned mind you!
I just...really? THIS was their best attempt? They couldn't have thought of a better way to bring back the Critic? Why did they even pull Demo Reel into this? The Walker Brothers could've easily brought the Critic back by having him review films in the plothole due to boredom. Or, maybe have him return to the real world since people kept making shitty movies without consequences.
But no, they instead decided to bring back the Critic all while essentially crapping over Demo Reel's lovable cast of characters.
And because they did do that, all of the character development, all the intense drama, all of the heart rending tearjerking moments that made Demo Reel a good show (IMO at least) are now meaningless and mount up to a huge waste of time!
So, Demo Reel used to be a good show and even though it was short lived, it could've ended on a happy note, until the Walker Brothers decided to come by and make the audience feel stupid for feeling sorry by making it all a punishment for the Critic.
I myself have an idea who's to blame for this but I don't wanna attract any flame wars here so I'll just say, "I hope you guys are happy that you got your precious Critic back".
