The Best Episodes of Nostalgia Critic

Last Updated: Jan 12, 2019

Nostalgia Critic is a popular video series created by Chicago comedian Doug Walker. In the show, he plays the titular Nostalgia Critic, a grumpy and easily aggravated character who mostly reviews entertainment from the 1980s and 1990s. His catch-phrase, "I'm the Nostalgia Critic. I remember it, so you don't have to," usually opens and ends each video.
