Game Grumps

#3 - Game Grumps

Game Grumps is a Shorty Award Let's Play webseries created on July 10, 2012, by comedic game critic Jon Jafari and animator Arin Hanson. Jafari left the show in June of 2013 to focus on his primary Youtube channel, JonTronShow. He was replaced by comedy musician Leigh Daniel Avidan, also known as "Danny Sexbang", from the musical comedy duo Ninja Sex Party.

TED Talks

#5 - TED Talks

TED is a nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design. TEDTalks began as a simple attempt to share what happens at TED with the world. Under the moniker "ideas worth spreading," talks were released online. They rapidly attracted a global audience in the millions. Indeed, the reaction was so enthusiastic that the entire TED website has been reengineered around TEDTalks, with the goal of giving everyone on-demand access to the world's most inspiring voices. [TED-Ed and TEDx are separate TVDB series and should NOT be listed here.]

Dragon Ball Absalon

#7 - Dragon Ball Absalon

The series begins twelve years after Goku is seen leaving on Shenron not at the end of Dragon Ball GT, and diverges entirely into its own plot from there, on an alternate timeline from the one which shows Goku Jr. fighting Vegeta Jr. at the World Martial Arts Tournament. In this series, Majuub has reached new levels of power, and has honed the techniques taught to him by Goku. We also see Gotenks finally mature, and Vegeta more powerful than ever.Each character will bring forth their own set of capabilities and purpose, winning fights and being relevant, in order to create an environment that emphasizes teamwork as well as individual worth for each character. In this series, the main set of villains are Saiyans, with abilities highly similar to the Saiyans that we are familiar with. These new Saiyans are more powerful than any threat the Z Fighters have ever faced, but after twelve years of intensive training, our heroes will not be easily defeated

Angry Video Game Nerd

#21 - Angry Video Game Nerd

The titular Nerd character is an ill-tempered and foul-mouthed video game fanatic. He derives comic appeal from excessive and inventive use of profanity, frequent displays of explicit gestures, and heavy consumption of beer, particularly Rolling Rock or Yuengling, to "soothe the pain". A particular characteristic is his favorable comparison of extremely repulsive and painful, usually firmly scatological, acts to playing the games he reviews. Varying amounts of physical comedy are mixed into the verbal abuse.

Chito and Yuuri each occasionally struggle with the looming solitude, but when they have each other, sharing the weight of being two of the last humans becomes a bit more bearable. Between Yuuri's clumsy excitement and Chito's calm composure, their dark days get a little brighter with shooting practice, new books, and snowball fights on the frozen battlefield.

Each episode revolves around Yellow Guy, Red Guy and Bird Guy meeting one or several anthropomorphic teacher characters, who begin a musical number related to a basic concept of day-to-day life with a happy upbeat melody similar to that of a nursery rhyme. As the song progresses, it becomes more and more apparent that the episode's "teacher" character is subtly trying to condition the main characters to share their own opinions and beliefs about the subject, to humorous effect. The climax of each episode usually involves a shock element with heavy use of gore imagery.
