Over the last few weeks a drama has been unfolding at Channel Awesome. For those who don't know what that is, it's a review website/company based around Doug Walker AKA That Guy With The Glasses AKA Nostalgia Critic. You've probably heard about their contributors over the years, who have gone on to make a name for themselves: Lindsay Ellis, Folding Ideas, Chris Struckmann, Atop The Forth Wall, Linkara etc. What the audiences didn't know was that all through that time it's been a train wreck behind the scenes.
