Oh my lord, except for one and only partly, the reviews here are talking about this programme like it's one of the worst things ever, and it's not so terrible at all, you could do much worse with your online time. It's like you people are happier hearing pure negativity or something.. I mean certainly the show has really started to go downhill these last couple of years and is fast becoming a shambling corpse of its former self, and I would agree that as a channel Watchmojo is indeed on its last legs and has definitely outstayed its welcome and that they should definitely think about calling it a day as most of the latest top 10s have been getting pretty grim, but still they have put out a lot of fun entertaining content over the years that is deserving of a little consideration. And they're certainly tryers, they're bailing on that sinking ship for all it's worth, they even got canned one time and recovered from it! The subjects of the top 10s offer so many different themes and subjects that virtually anyone could gleam a little enjoyment from them, variety is one of their big pluses, as is sheer consistency, these guys make at least two videos for every single day of the year, and this has been going on for at least four years now, and they have to write a kind of script for each episode's Voice-over. And I do like the narrators, the main guy and girl that have done most of them have pleasant voices that don't tend to yell inanely or grate against your eardrums. I like the humour that they try to put into it and how they'll use a clip for a movie or TV episode ironically. My favourite types of Mojo uploads are always the video game related ones, or horror movies, or anything to do with the. Power Rangers! I find their top 10s to be better made and more entertaining than the ones done by Screwattack or Peanutbuttergamer. It's a very 'easy' show to snip in and out of that doesn't take up too much time or indeed require a great deal of thought, not that I have any particular aversion to that. This guy from a pretty good series called "I Hate Everything" did a scathing video about Watchmojo where he said that it was a soulless series that was made for the sole purpose of capitalising on the mindless fandom of viewers who enjoyed not being challenged, or some such.. Mm, fair enough, but why attack the people who like the show and not the show itself? Some might watch it and like and comment on every last video that they put out downright religiously but I don't, I take what I like from this show and I know exactly what I'm watching it for, I'm not a dummy. It's just a decent little time burner and a bit of enjoyable entertaining internet crap, none of it really means anything, it's amusing and informative fluff that's here today gone tomorrow and is quite harmless, to dismiss the whole thing as "wrong" is just silly. Far worse has been just as popular in the past like "Fred" and the "Annoying Orange", and that "Damn Daniel" viral video from a little while back did show that people en-mass will flock to the stupidest sh*t and love it if a buzz of some kind gets generated. And Watchmojo is slightly better than all of those, it's nothing spectacular or amazing but it's certainly not boring either, it has and deserves its place. So please relax and lighten the hell up, as it's really not that bad! x
