That's the fucking joke. He thinks if he acts like he's unfunnier than he already is so his fans will interpret it as humor and making fun of…mockbusters?

However, his fans are smarter than I thought they were.

Watching the first minute of Demo Reel and Doug already ruined the first joke.

"I see dead people. Walking around like ordinary people. They don't even know they're dead."

"Like the 700 Club?"

"No. They're ghosts."

Had to oversimplify the joke. Leaving it at the 700 Club line would've been good. The girl would've kept on, not noticing that Doug had mentioned said TV show. Also, that's a terrible Beetlejuice costume. AND FUCKING CASPER. MY FUCKING GOD. AND WHY IS THIS GUY DOING A HORRIBLE BILL COSBY IMPERSONATION. WHY. AND NO. DOUG. THAT'S NOT A GOOD JOKE. NOT ORIGINAL. YES, I GET THAT GHOSTBUSTERS CHICAGO DIVISION IS COOL AND STUFF, BUT LEAVE THEM TO BRAD JONES' WORK. PLEASE. AND SERIOUSLY. YOU CHICAGO DIVISION ARE BAD ACTORS. EXCEPT FOR THE GUY WHO ACTED IN BRAD'S MOVIE. AND A FUCKING RANDY NEWMAN JOKE. FUCK YOU, DOUG. FUCK YOU.

NO, DONNIE DUPRE. THAT WAS NOT THE SIXTH SENSE. THAT WAS NOT A BLOCKBLISTER VERSION OF THE SIXTH SENSE. THAT WAS SHIT. YOU SHOULD BE ASHAMED FOR MAKING IT.

It's becoming more and more transparent that "Donnie DuPre" is just a slightly more polite Nostalgia Crtiic.

Like Varden said, he really does seem to be typecasting himself. Until he does something more out there and original, everything will seem like just another Nostalgia Critic expy.

Goodness, the first 6 minutes of this week's Snob is already better than most of the Snob videos he's churned out in the last couple of months. Good thing he could break his cut-off date to check out Violent Shit 4.0

Seriously, since the summer Brad's been doing more misses than hits.

I find it kinda funny how the title to that Rob Paulsen video is "Demo Reel annoys Rob Paulsen", not "Donnie DuPre annoys Rob Paulsen". Yes, he was bothered by a show. That's like saying "30 Rock annoys Rob Paulsen".

Actually, now that I think about it, the title's starting to make sense. It's not that Rob Paulsen is being annoyed by Demo Reel, it's that Demo Reel, the show, annoys him.

Might as well have made the video called "Demo Reel annoys everybody". Would've been more accurate that way.

Poor critic, I blame his fans for this.

Time after time he released his critic videos and they ate them up, they wanted the same old thing over and over again and he gave it to them, to never-ending praise. Eventually he himself grew tired of it and wanted to try something different. Unfortunately he never got to experiment aside from those "alternate personality" shows (ALL OF WHICH are better than this, btw) and now he wants to get a set and try some creatively different things without the skills and experience to do so.

But even if this show did get really good, you know its still not gonna make him the same amount of money as the nostalgia critic did, especially if he has to split the revenue like he did with his critic vids. And now he's married and potentially starting a family, I wouldnt be surprised if he brings back the nostalgia critic.

Personally, I believe Doug should leave the acting, writing and directing to the actors, writers and directors and go into business as a professional film critic because that is what he's truly best at. He's idolized Siskel and Ebert growing up, after all, so it would only makes sense he follows his true passion.

Doug's much better when he's legitimately pointing out issues with something instead of going "OOGA BOOGA BOOGA SILLY JOKES LOOK A GREEN SCREEN OOOH!"

That's why I'm interested to see this other new show he's talking about, which is basically Siskel and Ebert, except with him and Rob. That sounds like it could be fascinating.

In the very least, it'll be way better than Doug's take on Epic Movie.

I'm not really sure what to say about Demo Reel now that I've seen it..I wasn't horrified...but I didn't like it either. I think the biggest issue for me is the character of DuPre. I don't know if I want to know what comes next in Demo Reel, but I can only hope it gets better.

I don't think Demo Reel is an abomination or anything, it's just that it's stunningly mediocre, a total bore, and that he put all this work into it and hyped it this much, only for the end result to be this, is rather depressing.
