    What Web Video Shows are you watching?

    Partially looking for new recommendations, partially inspired by the "TV Shows" thread, let's talk about online WebShows / YouTube Channels / Video Blogs you follow!

    Mine:
    * Zero Punctuation - amusing short game reviews galore
    * JimQuisition - very sarcastic and comedic show about games and the industry
    * Extra Credit - pretty interesting thoughts on game industry and design from jurno's and a developer
    * Angry Video Game Nerd - if you haven't heard of that yet, get out of your rock
    * TotalBiscuit - Semi-interesting "lets plays" but I've been getting into his rants and "content patches" (aka gaming news)
    * Spoony Experiment - Game Reviews, random thoughts, and all things nerdy
    * Food Wishes - awesome food recipe blog with a charismatic and amusing (voice-over-only) host
    * TED - very thoughtful and inspirational presentations by numerous big figures on virtually any topic

    Personally, I find most shows on Escapist absolutely dreadful, aside from Zero Punctuation and Jimquisition. I also looked at the infamous YogCasts and just couldn't stand their constant yammering that had nothing to do with what they were doing/playing, hnnngh.

    So, what do you watch and would recommend?
    Postmortem: one must die- Political narrative-adventure game playing an Agent of Death who must take ONE life that could change the fate of a conflict-torn Nation!

    We LOVE Foodwishes in our house. Chef John's wonderful sing-song delivery, his great sense of humour and fantastic recipes are a winner.

    On a food tip, I also enjoy Supertaster who reviews fast food, weird snacks and drinks and convenience foods. He doesn't have any special charm or wit but is usually entertaining to watch. Disclaimer: living in the UK we don't get any of the foods he reviews and laughing at crazy American dietary habits is a large part of the appeal.

    Just the Fine Brothers' work. I'm not very good at keeping on top of that sort of stuff.

    CGPGrey excellently explains things you didn't know you wanted to know.


    I also enjoy some of the stuff Brady Haran does. He's got a whole bunch of YouTube channels dealing with various university disciplines. Here's an example from the maths channel Numberphile, explaining the Enigma machine.

    Last night I binged on the Nerdist's All Star Celebrity Bowling - which kept me thoroughly entertained for a couple of hours

    I found this video on the channel you linked and it shattered my worldview. Until now I thought Bitcoins were just one of those crazy Internet memes that faded into obscurity two years ago, but apparently they still exist. And people consider them a worthwile investment. What's going on here?

    I can't make it past the fact that the guy in the video moves way too much. Seriously, stop jumping around like you're trying to entertain a five year old and engage adults instead.

    I'll try again to just listen to it, but then obviously I'll miss any visual data.

    Nostalgia Critic mostly also he seems to be back now after having a few months of not creating anything and have to say its gotten a lot funnier as well because of it. If you like Angry Video Game Nerd and like movies you will definitely like this http://thatguywiththeglasses.com/vid...stalgia-critic

    If you like that I definitely recommend Brows Held High which is a bit more artier version of Nostalgia Critic, it goes through art films some of them bad some of them good and talks about what they could mean and the history of it. Also good introduction to some of these weird films. http://thatguywiththeglasses.com/vid...rows-held-high

    The Big Picture and Escape To The Movies, I like The Big Picture when its talking about important things because its generally good and enlightening I don't like it when its talking about funny old TV shows or movies http://www.escapistmagazine.com/vide...he-big-picture

    Escape To The Movies is just movie reviews but good ones

    Never really watched it much but Shut Up and Sit Down is excellent if board games are your thing. The reviews from Classic Game Room are enjoyable to watch as well.

    Burning Love season 2 has started. One was great and nailed the shows it spoofs perfectly. It's US only but if you can master Google you can get around this.

    Crash Course for world history, mostly.

    Vsauce for a wide range of educational topics.

    minutephysics for some good science info.

    SciShow for more science goodness.

    I've seen Smarter Every Day and Numberphile before, and while I've heard about Periodic Videos I haven't seen any yet. I'll be sure to check them out, thanks!

    Right now I'm mostly watching RedLetterMedia's movie reviews. (they're the people who made the infamous 70 minute Phantom Menace review(yeah it really took that long to list everything that was wrong with it)). Also watching some of Comedy Bang Bang's video podcasts on YouTube.

    Also, HELLO KOOBAZAUR!
