• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

He remembers it so you don't have to. You'd better be grateful.


The founding character of the That Guy With The Glasses site and the one that, in conjunction with the Five Second Movies, launched Doug Walker's career as an Internet celebrity.

The Nostalgia Critic is a cynical critic who reviews movies and TV shows from The Eighties, Nineties and occasionally 2000 [1] (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.
