    Well that was…anti climatic. They spend 4 parts building up Insano, then he runs in and starts shooting lightning with SCIENCE, and then… he just gets beat…lame. Besides, couldn’t he have just used SCIENCE to create an anti explosive field generator or something and use that to stop the critic, then lightning zap him?

          Isn’t Dr. Insano used to getting his ass beat because even with his scientific know-how, he mostly fails to implement it?

          With that said, circa 2008, very few people really liked Scrappy Dr. Insano, especially in the forums of this site. Flash forward to two years later, and now people are complaining when Insano isn’t being portrayed as some sort of Villain Sue.

    I agree hinting at Dr. Insano for four episodes then just having him get into a fist fight? Couldn’t anybody have done that? I thought he was going to you know OUTSMART the critic.

      What, are you new to the site or something? Dr. Insano is about as effective as Shredder save for some occasions (like him successfully killing Spoony, who is him anyway).

    • Anonymous

      Agreed. I know Insano’s largely incompetent, but I was still hoping he’d do something more along the lines of a mad scientist. Whether the Doctor won the day or not, I was expecting more than a simple (albeit funny to watch) fight scene, after the four episodes of building up to him. Why couldn’t anyone else have confronted NC, if all they were going to do was punch each other? At the end of it all, Dr. Insano’s debut in Kickassia didn’t seem to have any effect at all on the story, except for indirectly causing Film Brain to apparently switch sides. Yeah, the fight WAS funny, but I was expecting a better payoff, like Insano relying on his brain (for better or worse, that’s what he usually does anyway). Is Dr. Insano still President? Maybe he could’ve used some of those resources, or just make something to cancel the signal of Doug’s detonator, or whatever.

      That criticism aside, it was an entertaining episode and I got a kick out of Board James’ cameo and Linkara stepping up.

        Well, obviously if Insano went with a device, he’d be stealing the spotlight on several other characters (Film Brain, Santa Christ, the cameos from the other guys at TGWTG, and so on). I understand that as fans of Spoony, you want more out of his character (which boggles my mind, because he was such a Scrappy way back when, almost as much as Spencer), buuuut this is a TGWTG movie, not a Spoony Experiment video.

        Whenever Insano does his SCIENCE! thing, they tend to cover a whole episode (e.g., the Warrior comic review), and that’s time better spent to distribute the spotlight to the rest of the members, IMO. Also, Insano’s a moron and insane, so of course he fist-fighted and only used Sciencier lightning bolts. What is it about the name Insano that eludes you people? :P

        • Anonymous

          I understand that this is a TGWTG movie, and not just Spoony’s. Like Noah said in his commentary for Brawl, each of them can’t exactly rewrite Doug’s script and get in all of the things that they want, but there are still basic guidelines for storytelling. When a character that you’ve been building up to for four episodes doesn’t actually do ANYTHING to affect the story or the characters around him, it’s not a good sign. I mean, in hindsight, instead of Cinema Snob disarming the explosives in the finale, it could have been Insano. Even such a small act as that, for example, would’ve gone a long way to making it feel as if there was a reason that Insano was included in the story at all (and it’s not as if Cinema Snob’s role was dependent on the act of disarming the bombs).

          As it was, however, the not insignificant amount of time that was spent on all of the build-up to Insano’s appearance, as well as the fight scene, could have been left entirely on the cutting room floor without making any difference to the story; and that’s not a good thing when we’re talking about an entire subplot, not just a joke here or there. Spoony’s change should have had at least some amount of impact on the events around him. That’s screenwriting 101 stuff. They didn’t have to include Insano at all, and Spoony didn’t have to have as big of a role, but I still would have enjoyed Kickassia immensely. I simply expected a better payoff after all the hype given to the emergence of Dr. Insano.

          I know that what I just typed can come across as pretty critical, but I did enjoy the fight for what it was, and the fact that that was even my only real criticism of the entirety of Kickassia should say a lot.

    Its very clear and obvious that Insano went easy on the Critic. Seriously, the NC was so distracted by Linkara and Angry Joe that he could have annihilated him with SCIENCE (!) a few thousand times.They just need to fusion the angry video game nerd with Insano. Angry Insano… its like Shin Akuma from Street Fighter III but with SCIENCE (!)… It would be a immediate victory but the world would be at the mercy of this juggernaut of absolute death and destruction.

    That battle was hilarious. I don’t quite understand why people were expecting it to be this epic brawl, a battle to be spoken of for ages. It’s a comedy. Great use of slapstick. Gotta love Lindsay doing the Palin thing and the digs at how stupid M. Bison’s brand of science was. I haven’t laughed that hard in a long time! (Of course, shortly after this, he posted that Highlander 2 review and I’m still laughing over the ending.)But like I said, I don’t get the complaints. Dr. Insano is insane! Of course he’s not going to have a rational plan! If he were sane, sure, he might have built an anti-explosion device or simply shot NC in the face, but he’s not. It being built up as it was and turning into a slapstick comedy fight was perfect for the character and the setting. That was the point. He’s nuts!Can’t really blame him though. Those goggles will give anyone a headache after wearing them for a few minutes. Weird orange tint and that swirl dominates your vision. That’ll fuck with anyone’s head.But really, don’t take this seriously. It’s a comedy. Sit back and enjoy the insanity. :3

    The fight between NC and The Doctor. Deliciously campy. At times it felt like I was watching the old Batman series from the 60’s, only not :D In other news, it was great to see Linkara taking charge after Insano’s failure. Although I’m pretty sure The Doctor will be back with a vengeance soon. Film Brain… I think he’s pulling Sam Fisher here, acting as a double agent for both sides. Could be wrong here though. Only time will tell… :D

    Also, a great cameo appearance from James Rolfe as Board James.

    I think that Dr. Insano should resurrect Santa Christ. Sounds like something he would do.

    And I chalk his loss up to using his science instead of gun violence. Now if he had a dooms day device, a ton of explosives, or just maybe some kind of mind control ray, sure Insano would have won, but those things take time, and money. And the only money he had with him is whatever Spoony would have had in his pocket at the time. ( I’m thinking he just bought a soda instead)

    anyway…

    Awesome episode, and that one quote from Insano ” the flag with an evolution chart with him as the result” If that isn’t already a T-shirt or Flag it should be.

    Dangit, Insano, you should’ve won! After such a long build-up I expected him to take over the nation but his reign only lasted a minute or two. Shame shame shame. But anyhow, Spoony, you are definitely the star of this show, no doubt about it.

    Also, I’m glad they killed Santachrist, I hated that character from the very start. I think they should just keep religion out of this. Insano resurrecting him with SCIENCE so they can both kick BI- NCs ass? Sure, I’d be ok with that.

    Nice to see Dr. Insano but I wish NC didn’t waste him like that. Instead of some sort of mad scientisty plan we get a fist fight. I think Doug could have done a little better with this whole script even with all the obvious limitations, could have maybe gotten someone to co-write it so he didn’t have to think of everything.

    I was really hoping Insano would pull a Darth Sidious on N. Bison when he had him beat and just when N.bison is distracted, drop his ‘i’m scared’ act and shoot science beams at him shouting “Unlimited POWER!!!!!!

    So great to see that Noah got a big role in this video special. Although I didnt think he would win against the Nostalgia Critic I doubt that Insano would be beated by a gun. Maybe it’s time for him to increase his arsenal a little? After all…SCIENCE! makes great weapons. And I wish i could make a gif between 03:02 and 03:04. Insano just looks hilarious between those two seconds.

    • Anonymous

      He already has all sorts of weapons. A time compressor. An anti-magic field (with dongly thing). A son he made by himself that he can use as a stress ball. A men-in-black-style neuralizer. A device that screws with hypertime. Countless other inventions. He didn’t use any of those in these things. Why? He’s Insano, and he’s supposed to be a moron. It all sounds very in-character to me, actually.

    I am speechless. I truly am. That fight scene and what came of it has left me totally, utterly, without words. One of the best fight scenes ever, followed up by one of the most shocking deaths of all time. The only thing that comes close to expressing myself correctly is…

    “Woah.” – Neo from The Matrix

  • Anonymous

    I have questions. Many questions. The biggest one being: why is Insano fighting the NC with his fists instead of SCIENCE! Not that the fight scene wasn’t epic. It was very, very well done, special effects and all. But I don’t get it. I don’t see why Insano would get into a fistfight. Science nerds, evil or not, aren’t exactly known for their hand-to-hand combat prowess. I half expected the good doctor to whip up some laser gun from bits of string, a potato and a tiny hotel shampoo bottle.

    Anyway, I’m glad Spoony got another shot at his Shoryuken. I gather he wasn’t pleased with last year’s.

    That being said, another great episode. Not my favorite, but it’s mostly setup for the next one so that’s to be expected. You guys improved so much in a year, it’s insane. This can only bode well for the three year anniversary.

      Yes, because Dr. Insano standing there, laughing, pushing buttons, and relying exclusively on After Effects and household props makes for a great fight scene. Then, soon after, he gets taken down by one punch! Brilliant fight scene there, skipper!

    I've been watching and loving Kickassia up till this point, but I have to say part 5 is a pretty severe disappointment… as a lot of people are already pointing out. I'm writing this with the assumption that part 6 won't make a liar out of me by using Insano in a more fitting way, but here goes.

    The entire thing so far has completely missed out on using Spoony's best strength: his ability to *rant.* And when he becomes Dr. Insano, that ranting takes on a hilariously rambling and deranged tone. I enjoy seeing Insano because it means I get to hear some of that dialogue, the epitome of MAD SCIENCE!!! itself! Putting aside the fact that he got into a fistfight… which is difficult… the real problem was that we had none of Insano's dialogue. Insano spoke, but it wasn't INSANO'S DIALOGUE (a couple good lines, I suppose, but you know what I mean). If Spoony isn't allowed to actually write something for Insano, I'd rather not see Insano at all. I'm not going to cheer like a fan for the lab coat and goggles alone.

    That all being said, I know it's a lot to ask. In his commentary on the Epic Brawl, Spoony explained that if everyone wanted to change parts of the script, it'd turn into a nightmare; I imagine that's even more true in Kickassia. I can't really be angry with Doug for misusing Insano like that, but I can be disappointed as a primarily-Spoony fan. And I am.

    Honest thanks to Spoony for posting up a review right after this, though. Cheered me right up.

    Shaking it off, looking forward to part 6!

    I’M SCIENCIER!!!

    “The entire thing so far has completely missed out on using Spoony's best strength: his ability to *rant.* And when he becomes Dr. Insano, that ranting takes on a hilariously rambling and deranged tone. I enjoy seeing Insano because it means I get to hear some of that dialogue, the epitome of MAD SCIENCE!!! itself!”

    Have mercy on Spoony's vocal cords, that Insano voice is hard on them.

    “Putting aside the fact that he got into a fistfight… which is difficult… the real problem was that we had none of Insano's dialogue. Insano spoke, but it wasn't INSANO'S DIALOGUE (a couple good lines, I suppose, but you know what I mean). If Spoony isn't allowed to actually write something for Insano, I'd rather not see Insano at all. I'm not going to cheer like a fan for the lab coat and goggles alone.”

    On the other hand, this is a very legitimate complaint. A lot more legitimate than the whole “Dr. Insano should've wiped the floor with N.Bison!” thing that's being put forth at the comments below. Yes, it's quite hard for Doug to write Insano as you remember him. On a related note, I think Linkara himself had problems with his own Doug-written dialog in the Alone in the Dark review… something that didn't quite jive with his feminist sensibilities, I believe.

    Good morning Spoony and fellow Spooners.

    You know, they could’ve just SHOT Critic in the back of the head when he was praying for Santa Christ. Speaking of which, what’s the big deal over Santa Christ dying? He can resurrect himself. He’s kind of known for that sort of thing.

    This all makes it sound like I’m bitching, but in all honesty, this entire Kickassia series has been great. Thanks for the effort, ladies and gentlemen.

      I personally don’t give two shits about SantaChrist. Before this small cameo he has had about, what, 5 minutes of screentime? And people are CRYING because he died? It’s just beyond ridiculous if you ask me.

        The people not giving two shits about him may be the cause of his death, too… Congratulations?

    Eh, this episode wasn’t as great as the last one. The Insano-Critic fight was surprisingly hilarious but the rest of the episode just got bogged down in various filler.

    Of course, I’m a heartless person who cares nothing for Santa Christ.

  • Anonymous

    I was hoping for an elaborate plan in which the insanity of Dr. Insano could overthrow NC… But the writer (I’m guessing it’s not you, Noah) copped out and just did a slap around scene, like we’ve seen way too much of… Oh well.

  • The_Stig

    Could have used more Insano ranting but I suppose it's only natural that Doctor Insano job to NC, who's the Hulk Hogan of Channel Awesome. The Critic might let you get some offense in, but sooner or later your shoulders ARE going to the mat no matter who you are. Also, that was the one moment I would have liked to have seen Distressed Watcher show up in the clip montage going “I DON'T believe in Santa Christ. Nothing personal.” There's a notorious atheist on staff and they miss out on the one time he would have actually been clever.

    Still, if there's one actual negative I can say for Kickassia as a whole, it's that while it is epic and very entertaining and God knows Doug's M. Bison costume is the most inspired thing that has ever existed and even Lindsey's half-ass Sarah Palin impression is starting to grow on me (she's just so cute when she does it), every third video on TGWTG it seems has a cameo from other TGWTG personalities (and God knows Spoony in particular can't go five minutes in any given review without a cameo FROM HIMSELF) so it IMO sort of undermines the specialness of an actual crossover event.

    Oh, and you have guys shooting lightning out of their hands and NOBODY does a “POWER! UNLIMITED POWER!” joke?

    Also, 7-11….will YOU join the race?

  • http://www.facebook.com/ObieWanCoyote Christopher Lash

    Wow… that was EPIC…, I mean an epic let down. Dr Insano may forever be tainted as N. Bisson’s bitch for me. I may never believe in science again *sniffles*.

    And that…. horrible segment afterward. Wow… does the NC think he beat it into my head enough? Why do you have to lower the bar to remind people that somebody’s not in this gathering video. I may be avoiding his site and episode six for time an eternity. …Well, I at least have to watch the last episode if I’m going to consider reviewing this pile of comedial refuse.

      “Wow… that was EPIC…, I mean an epic let down. Dr Insano may forever be tainted as N. Bisson’s bitch for me. I may never believe in science again *sniffles*.”

      As opposed to the times where he was Linkara’s bitch or Angry Joe’s bitch? Also, stop being such an creepy AVGN fanboy, or else you’ll risk getting dubbed as Alexander4488 or Mr. Bucket (same difference).

      • http://www.facebook.com/ObieWanCoyote Christopher Lash

        Hey, at least with the previous incidents the coming of Insano wasn’t hyped for four episodes. I was expecting something with EPIC science. But I guess the writters don’t care.

        And to set the record straight, I really don’t care for James Rolfe’s material. I was just meaning I wish they could have left his bag of tricks out of this episode as he’s not present.

          “Hey, at least with the previous incidents the coming of Insano wasn’t hyped for four episodes. I was expecting something with EPIC science. But I guess the writters don’t care.”

          I respectfully disagree. This isn’t the Spoony Experiment movie, this is the second anniversary special. And you’re right, I misread your complaint, and though you were coming off as an AVGN fanboy. And I was wrong, you’re more of a Spoony fanboy (which is, well, only natural, what with this being Spoony’s forum and all) than an AVGN one.

          With that said, if you’re more gung-ho about Spoony and his material, you’re probably not going to like this anniversary special concocted by Doug and his brother, even with the effort they’ve taken to give each and every last TGWTG member a spot (and Spoony has a significant role in this special when compared to a lot of the others, come to think of it).

          Again, I disagree. Dr. Insano had a whole episode dedicated to him, he almost won the Beam O War fight, he did get to use “SCIENCE!” in accordance to his definition of the phenomenon, and the only ones who really thought that the buildup should have led to Dr. Insano becoming some sort of Villain Sue is, well, TSE fans. The rest of the TGWTG fandom? They loved it. I rest my case.

    “Oh, and you have guys shooting lightning out of their hands and NOBODY does a “POWER! UNLIMITED POWER!” joke?”

    Eh, sounds a bit cliche. Granted, they used other cliches, but didn't Doug already do that in the Nerd versus Nostalgia Critic fight? In fairness to him, he does scale down on running gags and certain jokes in favor of making new ones.

  • http://www.facebook.com/MaSQuEdePuSTA Meurant Arthur

    This is pretty much the only of these TGWTG.com events that I intend on following from start to end. And so far, I really like it: my favorite critics are given their fair share of screentime. (Spoony and the Cinema Snob in particular have pretty much stolen every scene in which they were.)

    If only you could do one of those without the Nostalgia Critic. Without any offense meant, I've never quite understood why people find him funny. He surely built something great here though, but for my taste it's not on his talent.

  • Ubersnuber

    First part was awesome! Table-thing had me laughing out loud!
    BUT
    I have to admit I scratched my head when they sent Insano to a fist-fight:/ Was really looking forward to some SCIENCE!

    Last part, except for Santa actually answering Insanos ramblings, was horrible. Board James was a most welcome spray of air freshener amidst all the stinkyness, but only The Nerd persona would be able to save it.

  • mobtank

    Hehe, was expecting Insano to bring some robots or something, but this was damm funny as well. I especially like how you used the stetoscope as a weapon :)

    Just a little question, when you all started praying for santa-christ and it showed all the other TGWTG people that where not in the main story, I recognised pretty much every face exept she who said “I believe in santa-christ” in japanese (and yes I am a huge anime-fan who live in sweden and therefore only watches it subbed, thats why I recognised the language).

    Who is she and where can I find her material on the tgwtg site?
    Thanks in advance.

  • JfkAok

    Really not finding any of this funny or clever. Seems like a show that was made by commity or something. Some of spooney's, nostalgia chick's, nostalgia critic's and avgn's personal skits have been funnier and better put together than this mess.

    I got nothing against you guys collaborating, but come up with something worth your collective time.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Patrick-Wells/13805208 Patrick Wells

      Doug wrote these. And the truth of the matter is…he just isn’t that funny or clever. Spoony and AVGN are infinitely better comedians, and their comedic bits on their shows are far superior to Doug’s.

      Doug is good at picking apart movies from a critical standpoint and bitching about them, but…he’s just not that talented.

  • Akuosa

    … I like it.

  • http://www.facebook.com/ObieWanCoyote Christopher Lash

    Agreed, you'd think when they let loose the purse strings for this kind of thing, they'd want to produce something good. After all some of these kids are film school students!? I'd like to hear comments from the professors these kids study under.

    I understand, most of this is snark humor on bad moves in the movies they've reviewed and been tortured by as children. But it stands to reason, that when you spend most of your vlogging career complaining about this kind of crap in movies. You wouldn't produce the same crap.

    I know I'm really touchy on the subject of common sense, but there's really a slight hint of hypocrisy in this series. I just expect better from a guy that I have great respect for, as well as his crew who could have denied this production… I love how Cinema Snob seems to be a voice of reason in this though…

  • Zolwiol

    Me like mister whirly eyes. He makes me laugh.

    On another note Insano part is funny but goddamn I hoped for something way too epic (as most people) to satisfy my Insano needs compared to what was delivered. Still like it though! You can't go wrong with Insano no matter what you expected ;)

    PS. For any Privateer fan, check out great free game called NAEV. Not FPP like original but freedom makes you go nostalgia AND it's free AND if you know how to code stuff you can be co-creator ;)

    This was the best episode of the series so far. The entire Santachrist bit made me literally fall out of my chair laughing. The Insano and NC fight scene was great. “Well I'm sciencier!” lol. KICK ASS!!!

  • Zolwiol

    You know that those crossover movies are made in a day or jus couple of days right? You can't go too much into directing, editing (because there's only couple of takes for each scene) and other stuff like that.

    Also film school doesn;t make you an actor and most people from TGWTG are normal people that like to rant about things and have no movie/acting education aside from wanting to make funny stuff.

  • Renaissance_nerd

    NC was down for more then 10 seconds, in my book Insano won that fight.

    “I'm shocked, they pulled off E6 and I didn't wanna throw anything…”

    “Really not finding any of this funny or clever. Seems like a show that was made by commity or something. Some of spooney's, nostalgia chick's, nostalgia critic's and avgn's personal skits have been funnier and better put together than this mess.”

    You do realize that NC and Spoony were referencing and parodying nearly the entire M. Bison versus Guile fight with their fight, right? As is found here (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X9hatLT-vl4). It certainly explains why “Squishy Wizard” Dr. Insano suddenly had “slapstick comedy” fu when he gets taken out by one punch by most of his earlier arch-nemeses.

  • assiman

    The santa christ part kinda ruined the episode.

  • kefkaesque

    Awesome fight.

    I don't get why everyone is complaining. Spoony already had a bigger role than pretty much anyone else besides the Nostalgia Critic.

  • hwalsh

    Guest starring James Rolf as Board James! MWAHAHAHAHA

  • melissia

    WELL I'M SCIENCEIER!

  • kikyoo

    Well I like this fight scean even tho it is pretty cartoonish. I wouldn't watch this kind of nonesenes if i didn't like them. I also understand why they wanted Insaneo for it. He's the only one out of the entire cast who was cartoonish and really goofy to really pull off one of these over the top supposed to be dramatic fights that NC obviously wanted to do. There was enough build up to it, and I thought it was hilariously ironic that Insaneo used the magical power of science, while NC actually had a reason to shoot lighting. That was obviously done intentionally. Tho I agree having Insaneo throw down is kind of against his character, it's good for a one time thing we're not likely to ever see again. Also it builds Insaneo up more as a super villan, and I kind of like that. Because Insaneo was clearly the more powerful guy here, not only beating NC to a pulp, but then overpowering him with the force lighting. It's a shame he lost, but I get the feeling NC really wanted to do that joke there at the end, besides without that there wouldn't have been a part 6.

    SOOOO saw the Santa thing coming where they got all these people to chant the that crap, then didn't bring it back, just to show how creepy and wrong it is. Kind of funny, but not as much so when you know it's coming I think. Overall this is the only part of the whole thing I really liked. What can I say?

    Loved Insaneo shouting SCIENCE! before he lost. Just makes me smile. Chew the pills spoony… CHEW THEM!

  • TheFeydakin

    Well as long as your sincere about it… :D

  • moonlightdog

    spoony should use the title screen shot of Dr. Insano for a shirt, it kicks ass! And I wish they'd have done more with Dr. Insano, it seems like there is a “hole” when the fight is over.

  • foodlespane

    “Shut. Up. That's not a valid argument.”

    Yes, because you obviously want to “Mr. Bucket” Spoony to the point that you'd rather he takes over the Second Anniversary special, ignoring the fact that he didn't exactly have a bit part in the first place. Fandumb indeed.

    Oh, and your suggestion that he use more gadgets and “Science”? It was used in the second Spoony-Linkara crossover review. It also looked as retarded as I expected it. I'd take a decent fight scene any day for After Effects shenanigans, thank you very much.

    “And its “M.Bison” for fuck sake.”

    You're a bit slow on the uptake there, aren't you? Oh, and while we're at it, “its” is supposed to be “it's”, genius. Plus, “fuck sake” should be “fuck's sakes”, unless you do like having sexual relations with Japanese rice wine.

    NC: But it IS science!
