Jontron

Recommended Posts

I was close!

 

But yeah, cautious optimism.  The actual JonTron bits look good, but I hope the focus will be on the actual reviews with not too much fluff masquerading as plot in between, as tends to be the case when YouTube celebrities make movies and mini-series like these.

Yep. The whole time i was reminded of the AVGN episode about the Star Wars games, and only a few jokes put a smile on me. Hopefully the next videos will be better.

My lifetime partner in crime and best friend since childhood Dominic Ninmark is responsible for the music for this series it seems. Came as a huge surprise to me when I checked out the episode. His stuff is really good so if you liked the tunes in this episode be sure to check his page out.

Episode was kind of "eh" but I really never cared for Atari comedy. I've just never found much entertainment in many of the sterile production values.

Honestly, I haven't watched it yet, and I'm kinda hesitant to. I love Jontron, but I hate it when reviewers incorporate sketches and story lines into their reviews, as I've never found myself enjoying them at all. It always comes across as cheesy, and even if intentional, it doesn't really make it better.

 

And everyone's reaction to it here only furthers my lack of interest in the review... It seems like even the jokes are kinda weak. I'm probably just gonna hold off for a while on this.

Jontron incroporates sketches and storylines into his reviews all the time though.  The only real difference here is that this time he has a fancy set for it.

 

It's definitely a longer intro than he usually does but that could easily be because it's part one of an overall longer thing.

I don't mind brief skethes here and there or an overall connecting theme to the review as long as it's brief and not detracting.  I just hate when there's a huge, detailed plot, like in Linkara's videos.  I mean, I love his videos.  I just really can't get into the plot of it at all for some reason.

I am aware of that, but they're usually not that long. I never cared for long sketches in reviews, It's one of the reasons why I haven't watched the Nostalgia Critic in a good while.

 

I dunno, I might watch it in the future, but most of the reactions I've been seeing don't seem to be all that positive.

Were people really thinking that Starcade would be replacing regular JonTron episodes?  Like, I figured it was just a mini-event to coincide with the new Star Wars movie, similar to how the Nostalgia Critic has a Star Wars month, a Matrix month, etc.  Not sure where it was ever indicated that he would only do Star Wars things, and it's not like there's even enough Star Wars games to even keep a channel consistently running for more than a year unless he really takes his time.
