TFR 114: Change the Channel

Welcome back! This week we have frequent guest Zephyr back for a special update to our State of Criticism cast. For this discussion we focus on Not So Awesome, a document released by former members of Channel Awesome documenting what happened during their tenure at the site. We go over our thoughts on the document, as Zephyr, a long-time Wall fan, unloads on Nostalgia Critic’s latest parody video on The Wall. Tune in!

You can read the document here, and draw your own conclusions on what to make of this whole debacle.

TFR 92: That’s Problematic


This week we decided to follow up on Al’s article on how to deal with problematic art with a full-on episode. It’s a big topic and we absolutely can’t cover everything, but we can certainly take a bite out of the issue. Feel free to chime in with your thoughts via Twitter or Facebook.

Now please enjoy this completely unrelated picture of Woody Allen at the beginning of Annie Hall.
