Because I’m so timely here is my celebration of the 30th anniversary of He-man and the Masters of the Universe..about four years to late. Oops.

Top 10 Favorite Star Trek:TOS CGI Enhancements

This is an article is long overdue, but one of the reasons I never tackled it is because I wasn’t sure how to. Yeah I could do a whole rundown of these but you can find those anywhere.

So What Did I Think of “Inside Out”??

Yes I’m stealing this idea from Tamara Chambers, but hey a good idea is a good idea. I wasn’t planning on making this a series but figured I’d give it a try. So anyway…

Underrated Trek:Displaced (VOY)

Welcome back to Underrated Trek, where I take a special look at Star Trek episodes that I love…which may not be the most popular or even liked by most. Voyager is one of those shows which I will admit is far from perfect. But every once in awhile it manages an episode I just can’t help but love. I already talked about one in “Scientific Method”. Here is another. The premise isn’t that crazy but it’s raised by some bad ass moments. But does that technically mean it’s a good episode?

Classic Disney Movies on My “Must See” List

We all have those movies we never saw, and always wanted to. No matter how much we love movies, there’s always some we miss. Heck Tamara Chambers does a whole web series on the great movies she never saw. Even Disney movies fit that criteria, as hard as it may be to believe. There are Disney movies you’d swear the whole world must have seen at least once. I haven’t, yet.

Top 10 Nostalgia Critic Crossover Reviewers

July 9, 2017

Five Coolest (one time) Star Trek Characters Ever!

Four years ago I talked about one time characters, you know those characters that pop in one episode never to be seen again. In that article I discussed the dumbest, characters so lame they get made fun of by fans. You would think that a second article on the coolest would be obvious. Well it is, it just took me four years to finally discuss it. Lord have I been doing this that long?

Happy 10th Anniversary Nostalgia Critic!

So this week marked the tenth anniversary of Nostalgia Critic. I wanted to do a tribute, but what have I not covered? I already talked about my favorite episodes (twice), my least favorite episodes, my favorite jokes, a general tribute regarding my being a loyal fan for several years, and gone over how I became that loyal fan. But I wanted to do something…..then I came up with an idea which I think made sense.

I went through the ten “season” lists of episodes and tried to pick the best episode. Not my favorite necessarily, the one episode which I thought stood out above the rest as a solid episode which can be watched again and again. Thankfully the list is different than my top 10 favorite episodes, with one notable exception. So here at the Top 10 Nostalgia Critic episodes in order of season, in my opinion anyway. Two rules, they gave to be official episodes not specials, and no crossovers. Though that’s not a bad idea for another article….

#10.Batman & Robin
The first season was for obvious reasons not the strongest. Doug Walker has said many times this started as a hobby, and it kind of shows. The production values are weak and the reviews are kind of short. There were also little repetitive gags that would go away thankfully. But this episode is the best. Though it was a tough call between The Wizard and the Tom & Jerry reviews. Batman & Robin was the first review that started to feel like a true NC review, and of course it gave us a meme that continues to endure to this day.

Top 10 Nuttiest Board Games Based on TV Shows

Back in the old days of cave drawings when I was young, we didn’t just play video games but board games. You know, with a game board?  Ok Ok I am being very snarky. Everyone has played a board game in their life, whether it be Monopoly or Scrabble or Trivial Pursuit (my families game of choice).

But remember a few weeks ago I talked about cereals which were so bizarre that they didn’t even make sense? Usually these were based on something popular at the time. Well board games can be like that too. The list of movies and TV show based board games is staggering, and some make no sense at all! The Addams Family? Archie Bunker?? Saved By The Bell???? Beverly Hills, 90210 had a Twister knockoff which was lame. The worst may be the Murder, She Wrote game which is as blatant a Clue rip off as you’ll ever see! But while a board game based on a movie at least has a plot to base the game around, TV shows take a little more imagination. As a result most of these kinds of games are…..lame.

Here are ten board games that really existed…even though they make no sense whatsoever. I don’t mean the rules don’t make sense, I mean the fact that the game exists at all makes no sense! One rule, I am not counting when a popular show or movie is forced onto an already existing game like all the novelty Monopoly’s out there.

#10.Knight Rider

Not the worst idea, I guess. I’m very sure I had this as a kid. My question is about the box, what was up with the picture of David Hasselhoff? Could they not quite the rights to his image? Anyway the rules involve driving KITT around and avoiding trouble. Yeah, think I see why I don’t remember this one.
