    223 episodes is a pretty damn good run, and all of those still produce money for him whenever they are clicked. I think he's safe money-wise to try something new.

    But it's gotta be another lightning in the bottle if he wants to continue this as his career, although I have faith in him.

    That's a shame, really. But good luck to him!

    That said, I only just got into him, so still 219 episodes for me to watch!

    It's kind of sad that the last real episode is Scooby-Doo right now.

    Yeah it's odd. When I saw the Scooby Doo ep, knowing that it would be the last NC "for a while" due to the To Boldly Flee thing, I remember seeing the ending which parodied the Star Trek: TNG finale and thinking "lol it'd be funny if this was the final NC" but I never thought it'd be true

    He'll probably make a 'revisted/reunion/best-of' episode about the NC in the future.

    Well the video says the next couple months should have "Nostalgia Critic Retrospectives", but those will most likely be done as Doug himself. Still he's not fully skipping out and never touching the series again.

    I'm curious to what "Demo Reel" will be like. If anyone watches Brad's hit/miss "80's Dan" show, that's what I'm kind of thinking he has in mind.

    Well, good luck to Doug with whatever he comes up with next. Sad to see the Nostalgia Critic go.

    Yeah, it's definitely a bummer to see The Nostalgia Critic go. Although, at the same time, I have enough confidence in Doug's abilities that he will be able to come up with something equally as entertaining.

    It's funny that we're talking about this on a Simpsons message board, considering Doug said that he's ending because he feels like he's out of creative places to go with his show. And that he's not going to have it run for another 200 episodes just because it's popular and generates web views. It would be sooooooo incredibly easy for him (much like The Simpsons) to just do the safe thing and stick with just churning out stuff that he knows is already successful. But if it's not creatively satisfying, then what's the bloody point?

    It is a bit irritating considering that he's been lying at some conventions/in interviews this past year about the state of the show (saying he looks forward to making the show for years to come), but I guess he wanted it to remain a secret for... better surprise? I don't know.

    I respect his opinion greatly and echo what Jims said but I'm not sure if he handled it the best he could have.

    Yeah I don't like how sudden it is. Had he announced earlier in the year "hey guys, I'm gonna wind down the show this year to work on bigger & better things, so I hope you enjoy these last few months' of eps" it would have softened the blow a bit. Maybe he didn't feel like going to the trouble of hyping up the last few episodes and making them big and special since he knew he'd be busy with TBF.

    Either way, the show will be greatly missed but there's so much of it that I'm sure I'll still be watching episodes for years, much in the same way that Seinfeld is still successful in reruns 14 years after it ended.

    I was kind of reminded of Seinfeld and the backlash with the series finale it got, and maybe that's what Doug was worried about?

    Have to admit, it's pretty funny now recognizing the insane amount of crossovers this summer (right up to the penultimate episode) was mostly due to other reviewers begging Doug for one before he ended the show.

    It's even funnier how his younger and older selves begged him to be in the final ep

    I still have Nostalgia Chick and Cinema Snob to look forward to.

    And I'm looking forward to Demo Reel.

    I've only been a fan since his "Top 15 Simpsons Episodes" was posted on here. Sad to see him go, but this Demo Reel sounds promising.

    My favorite Nostalgia Critic episode has to be "Tom and Jerry". I laughed at every single moment of it, haha.

    Sad to see the end of NC. I haven't seen "To boldly flee" yet but it's nice to know that Doug might not be COMPLETELY done with NC (Bringing him back for a special or two if they feel it will be good). I'll check out the new show once it starts but I'll need some time to grieve over the loss of one of the best things on the internet.

    At least he ended it before it became another ''This movie sucks and 0/5 and your mother'' type of review show.

    Also, anyone who finished watching To Boldly Flee (or just loves goofy dancing), needs to go watch the Channel Awesome Dance Extravaganza #4.

    (Nella's a really good dancer.)

    Like he said, he's still doing his other shows and more, just not NC.

    One of Doug's donation drive videos, where everything totally goes wrong.

    Doug's going to be at Geek Media Expo in Nashville this month. So it's 99% probable that I will meet him. Kinda freaking out.

    I was right! (beware ultra-creepy redeye)




    He did a simple and straightforward Q&A in a teeny tiny room with maybe 50 of us in there. He did autographs afterward and signed a couple things for me and we chit-chatted and shook hands. Super nice guy, and very normal and approachable. Meeting him was the highlight of the convention for me, easily.
