The Problems With The Gamer From Mars: The Channel Awesome Controversy

Image
Recently a document was released, with both anonymous and named members of the Channel Awesome crew coming out with their experiences about the company, from some admittedly minor grievances all the way to sexual assault, particularly by Mike Michaud, one of the founders of the company and the man with the right to The Nostalgia Critic Brand. Out of this controversy the #ChangeTheChannel movement has been born, with hundreds of thousands of people rallying together to get rid of questionable management employed at Channel Awesome, and possibly even get the company shut down for good. Since the start of all of this, various YouTube videos have come out on the subject, both from former and current fans, employees, spectators who simply find amusement in the situation, and then….

Extramana and NobleAbsinth are collabing to bring to you a retrospective series on every contributor at Channel Awesome (formerly known as TGWTG).

Channel Awesome also serves as decent folklore about the early days of YouTube.


Today's episode revolves around one of the mid level to upper level producers on the site, Bennett the Sage. He reviews anime, really well, and reviews other stuff, decently too...
