Sarcasm does not equal intelligence
7 January 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I can't stand Phelous.

The thing is, his videos aren't inherently bad on their own. Granted it's not particularly funny, and the constant references never really go anywhere, but it's harmless enough. But it's the portrayal of the titular character where the problems begin.

Phelous has only one speed, and that's pure unadulterated sarcasm. Now, I enjoy this kind of delivery and it's the kind of humour I identify with myself. However, Phelous takes this to absolutely ridiculous level. Nearly every single solitary thing that he says is sarcastic, and not in a subtle way either, it's accompanied by the rolling of his eyes, waving of his arms and exaggerated voice. Now, this would be fine once and a while, but when EVERY SINGLE SENTENCE is like this, it gets old... very quickly. Especially when it's done for lines where sarcasm doesn't even fit in. Even taken as a parody of existing reviewers this delivery is incredibly annoying. Being sarcastic doesn't automatically make you witty or funny. It's a little more complicated than that, and looking at the kind of humour prevalent in this series I don't expect to find that here.

Not only that, but the reviews aren't particularly insightful either. Some of the most memorable reviewers either focus on either humour, or deconstructing the subject. Some are capable of even doing both. For example, reviewers like sfbebris explore the background of the subject, explaining the history of the project and how the end result may have become as great or terrible as it was. This manner of delivery isn't always necessary, and I wouldn't expect everyone to do so. But if you aren't brining anything new to the table, and your reviews aren't even remotely funny, one has to wonder why the exist in the first place.
