"Hel-lo, I'm the Nostalgia Critic. I remember it so you don't have to."
—The Nostalgia Critic
The Nostalgia Critic is a cynical critic who reviews movies and TV shows from The Eighties, Nineties and occasionally 2000  (though in a few cases he has reviewed more recent things, such as his reviews of The Room (2003), Alone in The Dark (2005) or Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea (2008)). He has a bit of a temper problem but is otherwise very sarcastic.
After running for 222 episodes, Doug announced the Critic's retirement in September 2012 (reflected in the ending of To Boldly Flee and to a lesser extent, his Scooby-Doo review, which was the precursor to To Boldly Flee), so he could move on to other projects, the biggest being Demo Reel. He would continue to make cameos in other people's works and was still referenced in other people's works, but he did not intend to return except on special occasions...
...that was, until, on January 22, 2013, the Nostalgia Critic's return was announced, bringing the end of ''Demo Reel'' along with it.Episodes resumed February 5, 2013, with reviews on a fortnightly basis, though now with editorials on the weeks inbetween, and no cutoff date aside from "not currently in theaters." The show also took on Malcolm Ray and Rachel Tietz, who played Tacoma Narrows and Rebecca Stoné on Demo Reel, as co-stars. Rachel left the show, saying goodbye to the fans in the review ofFace/Off and was replaced with Tamara Chambers, who had previously appeared in the review of Catwoman.
