For about a year, Doug had been producing videos of himself mocking the nostalgic movies and tv shows of the 80’s and early 90’s–Power Rangers, The Super Mario Brothers Movie, He-Man, etc.–launching himself to at least minor internet celebrity.
He’d moved from Youtube to his own page, gained fans, added other reviewers to his site, and even ended up with his own Wikipedia page. I’m not here to debate whether that should happen or not.
But even before accepting the position, she found herself embroiled in the dramatic, troll-filled wasteland that is the realm of internet comments. Now, of course, if you put anything on the internet, you’re bound to get criticism, often very stupid criticism. According to one particularly memorable (and frightening) commenter: I have watched all the nostalgia critic’s videos, so yes, I understand he curses and makes sexual references, but, for every single one of the women applying, when they say the F-word, not only does it not seem fitting for them to cuss in that way, it seemed strained.
Maybe it’s my personal preference, but I don’t think it sounds natural.
In his call out for the Nostalgia Chick, yes he states he has testicles, and yes, part of my problem with Lindsay’s review is that her shirt is cut too low.
The Nostalgia Critic can never, in any way, because he has testicles, use them as a tool to get anything for free in life.
I was not watching the site at the time, so I have to admit I cannot quite gauge the actual fan reaction, but judging by the comments left behind, I think that, aside from a few, soundly mocked protestations that women were neither funny nor on the internet, it was met with enthusiasm.

For every sexual reference in Lindsay’s video, I just didn’t understand why.
It did not make sense to me why you would put that there, it was amusing, but she forced it to be, it really didn’t have much to do with a review of any kind.
I know [the Nostalgia Critic] has said he would like to make love to himself, but that’s not selling sexuality, that is humor.He asked if the Disney execs wanted to f*** bunnies, yes, that’s also humor, but he sounds normal when he says it. And yes, Speed Racer dresses up like a sperm, that’s again, humor.
