They have too many mediocre video contributors. Almost all of them are very boring and generic videogame or movie reviewers with a stale sense of comedy. The only guys that i like are the Cinema snob and the Nostalgia critic, altough i don't like the Bum reviews series which is just the same joke over and over again or his Old vs new videos.
Agreed, the Blisteered thumbs part is too big and usually redundant, but hey, it's supposed to cater to different tastes, and give performers the admins think worthy, a chance in the limelight.
Linkara managed to come up with a few amusing videos, but now he's trying to incorporate some bullshit "storyline" into his show.
I think the storyline in AT4W is pretty silly, but it's a fun condiment. And his reviews ARE pretty great.
And yeah, Cinema Snob (you are now reading this post in his voice) is awesome. Film Brain has potential, if he worked on his delivery a bit. NChick could be better if she made her scripts more cohorent. Spoony is a genre on his own, and it's kinda hit-and-miss, mostly because many of his videos end up so long half of it is completely irrelevant. Toddintheshadows (see his youtube channel, btw), however, is hilarious. I hope to see more of his stuff.
But on the Anime side of things. Ugh. MarzGurl, aka miss If-you're-not-made-of-money-GTFO-from-my -fandom. Masako LARGE HAM X. Y The Ruler of Time... bland. The section really needs a good caustic critic, someone who will know shit when they see it, and say it loud. Most of the fandom still lives with the insecurity that if you bash one show, you bash all anime ever.
