This informative documentary details both the good and the bad uses of the world wide web, and paints a very realistic picture of how the words we use can scar others worse than any blade, and reminds us that the other online users are people too.Written by
This short was the final main part of the TGWTG 5th anniversary special, called The Uncanny Valley. The series had been very uneven, with Dragonbored being polarizing; Dragged In being mediocre; The Reviewers being a good pilot, if not a great short; and Internet Dating and Me being a slow build to a hilarious payoff. This short, however, was NOT a comedy. It was a serious documentary about problematic internet behaviors. Now, while I will not argue the truth of what they said within it, because yes, they're right, I will argue that it didn't FIT. It was a greatly depressing video that seemed to blame ALL of the fans for the actions of... not all of them. All in all, while this was a thing that most definitely needed to be made (although the audience that most greatly needs to learn these lessons aren't having it at all), it was still a sour note to end both the anniversary special and Welshy's tenure as a video producer on the internet.
