Heartwarming / The Annotated Series

Go To

Amidst the dark comedy, the annotators really show their seriousness on occasions.

  • ReloadXPsiPlays explains why he enjoys getting pleasure of watching and mocking terrible videos along with others.
    ReloadXPsiPlays: I'm just gonna go out on a limb here and admit something. When I first came across The Annotated Series on the beeupyou channel in early 2010 I was going through a rather rough patch in my life. I shan't bore you with the details but this project basically kept my spirits lifted (and they were lifted very fucking high by this; I got a sore throat laughing so much over the course of a few days of watching CAD and SMW) at a time when there was fuck all else around to do that for me. In other words, it made me remember what I'd learned and keep smiling. So if any of you are wondering why I seem a bit obsessed and attached, and if I sometimes seem to be doing a bit more than necessary for the project what with all the weird bonus shit I do, there's your reason. Thanks everyone :)

  • Whenever Avirosb says he'll retire, it upsets people.
  • The project has included several tributes to late actors:
  • The annotators were their usual unrestrained selves for the majority of Our Annotated Friend, Martin. However, either out of respect or boredom with the material or both, Dr. King's "I've Been the Mountaintop" speech in the last part was largely uninterrupted.
    • The trailer for Schindler's List is also mostly uninterrupted, mostly due to the film's subject matter.
    Annotator: How...exactly were we supposed to annotate that? We need bad things, not good ones!
  • The Mammoth car's Dying Speech is surprisingly heartfelt.
  • The entirety of the Spectreman series finale, with Spectreman giving up his chance to live a normal human life in order to beat Dr. Gori and Karas for good, than saying goodbye to all his friends. Everyone's given a heartfelt send-off and even the Annotators remark on how emotional the whole thing is.
    "Goodbye and good luck Spectreman"
  • The penultimate episodes of the Annotation Station on YouTube (a two-parter consisting of the second episode of The Nutshack) showcased a lot of the Annotated Series's most memorable moments, and of course featured the Surf Music.
  • The credits roll at the end of the final annotatable video on the Annotation Station channel. Set to the credits theme of Mystery Science Theater 3000, It featured a list of ALL the uploaders and annotators throughout the entire series (with even the anonymous annotators during the early days of the Series getting their own dedicated credit), as well as an annotation giving a shout-out to former annotators Owandt and Bauglir, in addition to the infamous GoseiGreen, which shows that even they deserved a salute as part of the final Annotation Station video.

How well does it match the trope?
