Trivia

Doug Walker and Rob Walker came up with the idea for this show in 2007, just around the time Doug had started Nostalgia Critic (2007), identifying it as the first ever series to tackle sketch comedy that lampoons current movies. They cite Home Movies (1999) as their inspiration. However, when 2012 came, the idea was no longer fresh. Shows like Robot Chicken (2005) had since came around that did the same thing. See more »

A show I was unsure of, but it won me over
25 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Now when I heard that Doug Walker was "retiring" The Nostalgia Critic, I was a little bummed out. However, when I saw the trailer for his new show "Demo Reel", I figured, OK, I'll give this a shot.

Now the first episode(The Dark Knight Begins Rising) I thought was funny but not great...Yet, I was intrigued by the ensemble cast(especially Rob's character of Copenhagen) and the cliffhanger at the end seemed like an interesting story arc.

The second episode(Wreck-It Ralph vs Angry Birds) I thought was hilarious. With this one, I could see where Doug was wanting to take the show and I was sold. It was something that very much had the same sense of humor that Doug(& Rob)Walker had brought before with the NC, and even managed to throw in a few subtle references but also was very different.

Now the third episode(Lost in Translation (Bromance Version)), I was actually taken back. I felt it was both pretty funny but also had a lot of heart to it. To me, it felt this was Doug telling a story that seemed very personal. One, I could actually relate to.

The final two episodes("The Blair Witch Hangover" & "The Blair Witch Hangover") is a great 2-part episode that you could almost see as the end of the first season or in this case, the end of the series, which is a shame. I personally loved this new show, I felt it was funny, original, and contained the same feel of The Nostalgia Critic but a little more well rounded. However, it appears that Doug has decided to hang up Demo Reel in favor of bringing back The Nostalgia Critic. I'll keep watching Doug's work, I just wish maybe he didn't have to cancel this one... At the very least, I hope they put it out on DVD on the website.
