Jim Sterling, as mentioned above.

A number of bushcraft, hiking and camping channels are basically extreme cooking channels. Joe Robinet and The Outdoor Gear Review are a good antidote to real life.

Big Clive takes apart consumer electronics and electricals, points out how they're deathtraps, and then takes them waaaay beyond their operating specs...


Can I have a link to Bedtime Stories? I suspect it might be a trickier one to successfully search out.


I was way more partial to Jesse Spano on that show. It's the only reason I suffered through Showgirl.

Some of my favourite channels:

Hbomberguy - some of his stuff is left wing political but he also does non-political examinations of video games and media (his Bloodborne video about play conditioning is excellent, as is his video on the effect that VHS had on how we view film). Also, his Serious Lore Analysis video on the ctrl+alt+del Loss comic is phenomenal. His recent video on Flat-Eartherism is also pretty great. Hail Sobek!

Lindsay Ellis - some great film analysis here, ranging from the history of particular films (all the different films made of beauty and the beast for example), to videos on stuff like death of the author, product placement and fair use, how corporate entities try to manufacture authenticity in their advertising and a multi-video series examining the Transformers franchise under film theory (such as auteur theory, feminist theory etc.).

OSWReview: podcast where some irish lads review wrestling shows, typically looking at specific arcs (their first was Hulkamania and they're currently riding the Lex Express). The early reviews aren't as good as they hadn't found their voice but once you get the holy trinity of Jay, OOC and V1 it quickly improves. They're very funny in my opinion and you can learn quite a bit about what was going in the background of some of these time periods. For their reviews of current wrestling stuff they usually have Maffew from Botchamania as a guest.

Terrible Writing Advice: tongue in cheek videos about writing fiction, filled the brim with love triangles, superfluous side characters and lots of terrible advice.

Extra Credits: great analysis of the video game industry and games themselves. As mentioned their Extra History videos are excellent (and if in doubt, it was Walpole).

LittleKuriboh: Yu-Gi-Oh Abridged, obviously, but he also has the Mark Remark which is a tongue in cheek wrestling review show (not current, is from a while back but he's gonna do a one-off of tgis year's wrestlemania, I've heard) and Watches Yu-Gi-Oh GX in which he watches an episode of Yu-Gi-Oh GX and then reviews it, especially the arses of the summoned monsters.

PennyArcadeTV: there's Penny Arcade The Series which is a little documentary series showing you behind the scenes of PA, including the run up to PAX which is pretty cool. Also Acquisitions Incorporated and the 'C' Team for some DnD goodness.

Zee Bashew: little animated videos about DnD stuff.

I watch alot of various stuff on Youtube, mainly history and gaming related.

My favourite channel at the moment is Squidge Rugby, I find his level of analysis amazing especially how quickly he analysis a game and gets a video out.

I just wish he would slow the text jokes down so I could read them without pausing the video.

Some of my regular watches have already been mentioned. I commonly watch:

Forgotten Weapons and the sister channel, InRangeTV (as mentioned above)

Scholagladiatoria (Matt Easton- excellent, measured, contextualised videos about historical weapons and their use)

Military History Visualised, and Military History Not Visualised to a lesser extent (excelent, in-depth videos about battle strategy, tactics, logistics, and organisation, good humour too)

Overly Sarcastic Productions (not seen these folks mentioned- funny videos about mythology, literature, and history- the mythology stuff is especially great. Nice animation style)

Extra History (I've not got round to watching the Extra Credits stuff yet, but the history is decent)

Bloke on the Range (messing about with guns, notably from the bolt-action era- amusing Mad Minute series with different guns)

Practical Engineering (channel I discovered recently, loads of really cool, accessible videos about engineering. I especially love the civil engineering stuff)

Tom Scott (videos about interesting and amusing factoids- usually short enough to watch when you are waiting for 5 mins somewhere)

MiracleOfSound (love this dude's music)

Hydraulic Press Channel (they squish stuff. With a press)

BrickExperimentChannel (do crazy tests with lego- like lifting over 100kg with lego pulleys and motors)

Spirit Of The Law (if you like Age of Empires 2, you need to watch this guy- loads of cool insights into the mechanics of that game!)

Lindsey Ellis (mentioned above)

ElectroBoom (hilarious guy regularly electrocuting himself)

DoodleChaos (amazing videos synced to music)

LOOK MUM NO COMPUTER (builds bizarre musical contraptions from all kind of stuff. Furby organ, 'nuff said)



I used to watch Shadiversity and Lindybeige a fair bit, but I have gone off both of them- Lindybeige is infamously unreliable in the authenticity of what he is saying, and I only really like Shad's stuff on buildings (which, whilst Anglo-centric, are pretty good. Especially the castle stuff).



Wow, that is a lot of channels...

As requested!

The older narrator is really good, but the new chap (last two or three videos) is settling in nicely.

Also, if you're into podcasts, The White Vault is a Lovecraftian radio play set on Svalbard in the modern day. It's long, about 6-7 hours, but builds up nicely. When everything hits the fan, it REALLY hits the fan.

There is a fair bit on combat with pistols too, but yes, mostly personal weapons up to and including the 19th century. Anything after the introduction of smokeless powder, you are generally better off watching Forgotten Weapons and Bloke on the Range.

CinemaSins suffers from claiming their work is satire, when it isn't actually satire of anything. Many of the mistakes they make in their Sins videos they also make in their videos which are supposedly serious reviews. Their videos also have incorrect "sins" (such as the countless times they give a film a sin for not explaining something when the film explains it later on) sitting next to sins for genuine mistakes. This blurs the line, making their claimed "joke sins" indistinguishable from legitimate complaints about a film.

With how many people there are making great videos about film and media (such as Lindsay Ellis, HBomberguy, Chris Stuckmann, George Rockall-Schmidt, etc.), CinemaSins only serves to lower film literacy due to their laziness.

There are no serious criticisms. Even those are just twisted to make more jokes. They tried way way back early on in some of their earliest videos but even those mostly focused on clunky dialogue, editing errors, and camera gaffes. After their Dragon Ball Evolution video exploded their popularity they basically went Yahtzee and focused entirely on what actual made them popular, being knit picky aholes.

About the only time I think they’re ever serious is when they take sins off. And even those get turned into jokes like at the end of EWW Ender’s Game when they took sins off for how great the book was.

Edit: which actually makes me want to go watch some How It Should Have Ended videos.

I do enjoy Dan Bell's Another Dirty Room series. Basically they go to the trashiest hotels and see what they can find heh:

Steve Shives.

Star Trek focussed, but a man with actual interesting thoughts, a solid presentation technique, and production values.

Again, my fondness (only discovered him today) is partly based on finding a kindred spirit. But he can articulate his brains in a way I struggle to.

It’s accessible. It’s coherent. Even if you’re not of a similar mind, and fair enough on that count, hopefully you’ll enjoy his thoughts and vids as well.

Be warned. Whilst not overtly political in his reasoning, he has a clear political leaning.

Found a couple of his videos which are against the opposite leaning.

But dodge round them, and you should be good.

Just a few I enjoy

Lets Play: https://www.youtube.com/user/LetsPlay
The gameplay side of the Rooster Teeth family. I personally enjoy Achievement Hunter and Funhaus.

The Mighty Jingles: https://www.youtube.com/user/BohemianEagle
An older retired British Navy Gnome overload of the salt mines that does World of Warship/ World of Tanks replay videos, Tankfest vlogs, and random games he is enjoying at the moment. Just recently got himself a new cat so there are some Kitten vlogs here and there as well.

If you ever wanted to understand the story of most FromSoftware games then this is the channel for you.

There are many many others but sadly I am at work so I need to make this quick. From reading this thread though, there are some other channels I need to check out.






This is silly! Buttons are not how one escapes dungeons! I would smash the button and rain beatings liberally down on the wizard for playing such a trick!

The man seriously argues that Micheal "gets lost" in Season 2 of STD, as in, doesn't get enough focus and attention. That alone is sufficient to dismiss him IMO, since it means either he actually believes that and is a numpty, or he feels the need to defend the show he likes even when it makes no sense to do so in which case none of his "interesting thoughts" can really be taken at face value.

I need to acquire plastic Skavenslaves, can you help?
I have a blog now, evidently. Featuring the Alternative Mordheim Model Megalist.

"Your society's broken, so who should we blame? Should we blame the rich, powerful people who caused it? No, lets blame the people with no power and no money and those immigrants who don't even have the vote. Yea, it must be their fething fault." - Iain M Banks

"The language of modern British politics is meant to sound benign. But words do not mean what they seem to mean. 'Reform' actually means 'cut' or 'end'. 'Flexibility' really means 'exploit'. 'Prudence' really means 'don't invest'. And 'efficient'? That means whatever you want it to mean, usually 'cut'. All really mean 'keep wages low for the masses, taxes low for the rich, profits high for the corporations, and accept the decline in public services and amenities this will cause'." - Robin McAlpine from Common Weal
