cutepiku asked: I didn't quite understand the instructions at the top of the google docs, but I added to the VERY bottom 2 possible new-comers, if you'd like to confirm the information I gave you.

We’re not the ones that made the list. It was one that was linked to us in a submission.

I’ve noticed that among many of those who announced that they didn’t make the cut for the Channel Awesome submissions, a good number of them were close friends with current Channel Awesome contributors.

I can’t help but wonder if that counted against them during the considerations; that the powers that be at Channel Awesome wanted to avoid accusations of engaging in special treatment.

If that’s the case, it looks like a lot of people I like aren’t gonna make it, because most of the non-TGWTG people I watch I was introduced to by TGWTG people. :(

Anonymous asked: With the first round of rejections out, anyone you guys are still rooting for in the audition?

We’re still VERY shocked that Isle of Rangoon didn’t make it. Those guys are great!

As for rooting for others, we’ve still got a good chunk of reviewers we’re hoping won’t get rejected. 

Good luck to everyone that auditioned! Hope you made it!

When I first start watching watching videos of a reviewer I’ve never seen before, I’m usually like “**** ***** this guy is hideous!” Then as I watch more of their stuff they become the most attractive person in existence.

Disappointed 
I didn’t apply for the talent pick up but a lot of my friends did. So the week Doug said they would tell everyone in has passed and no one has heard anything. I have to admit… that’s pretty rude.
 I mean you’ve got hundreds of people on the edge of their seats and yes i know they’re busy but give them a time and stick to your word. 
This doesn’t speak well of the people in charge or how they run their company. I hope those who get picked aren’t in for an unpleasant surprise.

Yesterday I got into a fight with a friend who dared to imply that RLM was better than TGWTG. Internet critics are serious business
Viva La Doug!!!!

I hope the talent pick-up results in more original shows

We all know TGWTG.com is home to plenty of reviewer based material. However, I think it would do Channel Awesome a great deal of good to spread out and give some original shows a slot on their website. Some original shows I saw that submitted to the pickup included RBG Productions “Call It What You Like” skit based show and the web series “Filmmaker Wannabes” from Jerod Adams. Stuff like that seems very fresh and would be cool to have on the site. I won’t hurt to have more reviewers. Not at all, but I’m just saying some original programs would be cool to have as well.

After watching “To Boldly Flee”, The Blockbuster Buster and AT4W, I came up with an in-universe explanation as to why there are Monsters, God-Dictators and Reviewers with Super Powers running around all the time:  The Plot.  The Dark Side of the Plot manifests within bad movies, games, comics, etc, with them having more power the worse they were.  These pieces of Media are designed by users of the Dark Side of the Plot, such as Michael Bay and Shyamalan, and creating these abominations gives them access to greater powers.  

The Critics on the other hand all get their abilities from the Light Side of the Plot, with their purpose being to review various pieces of media afflicted by the Dark Side of the Plot, and dispel the evil contained within to prevent it from hurting general consumers and viewing audiences.  Only a critic can expose the Dark Side of a film or game and banish it for good, with each critic having their own way of doing it, eg: E-Rod busting movies and sometimes Monsters that come out of those movies with his hammer, or Linkara burning bad comics.  

In rare cases the Dark Side can manifest into a being of the Plot; creatures that aren’t truly human and can sometimes resemble the critics or creatures and actors from their respective films.  These Plot Beings would be mostly sentient, but would mostly want to destroy the Light Side of the Plot and the Critics.  Some examples could be: Terl, Zod, Ma-Ti, Dr Insano, Lord Vyce, Lazarus Dark or Devil-Sage.

After finding Todd in the Shadows, I now pay attention and analyse current pop music. Todd is great because he disputes the idea that if you listen to pop music you are shallow, and that it’s fine to like pop music. If I had my own review show, I would review UK pop music because there is a lot of songs that don’t chart in the US that are big hits here, and that includes bad and good songs, (and a lot of mediocre club hits), but I realise I’d just be a rip off of Todd.

I don’t know, are we?

During the crossover between Smarty and MarzGurl, when they opened the door, I was actually thought it was going to be JewWario. I actually forgot he was dead for a second.

I wanna start a betting pool on who’s gonna be on the site, but I know a ton of people would be offended or out of money.
