Top 10 Most Overrated YouTube Series

NOTE: Has to actually BE overrated and not just extremely good (so yeah, Angry Video Game Nerd will be considerably lower on this list than Nostalgia Critic, in other words)

The Top Ten

1 Fred - Lucas Cruikshank

Pretty much everything that's been said in Annoying Orange, except that this obnoxiously flamboyant manchild somehow managed to put even LESS effort into his comedy than Smosh AND Annoying Orange put together, yet somehow STILL managed to get his own entire full-blown TRILOGY of movies based off of his videos. And after seeing them, I feel like it's right about time for me to whip out this classic RalphTheMovieMaker quote from his Fred 2 review:

"That's usually what happens when we, as humans, go through some kind of traumatic experience; our BRAIN tries to...repress it, erase it from our minds, LIKE WHEN I WAS A CHILD...THAT HAD AN UNCLE...and...he was a nice guy...SEEMED like a nice me gifts...took me to Chuck'E'Cheese, but then ONE day, he took me to his car...and said Xander, let's play the...NO CLOTHES GAME...for every slice of Chuck'E'Cheese pizza you ate, take off an article of I took off my SHIRT, and my pants, but then he said more...MORE...and ...more - xandermartin98

2 Smosh - Smosh

Basically Bart Baker humor without the musical backing

(in all fairness, Bart's Shape Of You parody was actually pretty funny, but that was about it; again, I really can't name ANYTHING strikingly funny about Smosh) - xandermartin98

There have been a vcouple of funny videos from them, but for the most part, they're pretty mediocre, nothing particularly groundbreaking. - kempokid

3 Leafy Rants - LeafyIsHere

The Content Cop episode ON him pretty much said it all - xandermartin98

4 Annoying Orange - Annoying Orange

Not relevant anymore, but exactly how ANYONE not suffering from severely low-functioning autism and/or Down Syndrome found this series funny in the first place is just COMPLETELY beyond me (he seriously makes the Minions from Despicable Me look like ACTUAL comedy gold at times) - xandermartin98

5 Nostalgia Critic - Channel Awesome Nostalgia Critic is an American web series created, written, edited, directed and performed by Doug Walker.

Hate to break it to you, but he is downright laughable (and not in a good way either) when compared to his Angry Video Game Nerd predecessor (yes, I know that the two of them review completely different types of things from each other, but still) - xandermartin98

I completely agree with this, especially these days where the content has been absolutely pathetic. - kempokid

Doug Walker can't hold ANY candle to James Rolfe. Walker makes me fall asleep. - Swellow

My god has he gotten bad lately. It’s just laughable.
Oh, and, Xander, I 100% agree about AVGN making him look awful, James has still got it to this very day. - NightmareCinema

6 I Hate (Insert Here) - I Hate Everything

I find the I Hate (blank) to simply be a name given to a bunch of videos that aren't about terrible movies. I find his rants to be closer to reviews in many cases, providing many well thought out arguments. The concept of rants is a much more overrated one in general. - kempokid

Excellent videos (for the most part), but pathetically small amount of content compared to his Search For The Worst series, and with an extremely generic and boring schtick at that (well-executed, yes, but if you ask me, he pretty much completely ripped it right off of good old Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw from Zero Punctuation, who also managed to pull off the schtick infinitely more convincingly and genuinely as well) - xandermartin98

7 Content Cop - iDubbbzTV

I really like this series thanks to how selective he is with who he does it to. If handled by someone with less restraint, I could easily see this being absolutely cancerous. - kempokid

Very genuinely amazing series of videos, actually
But the motivation behind them is pretentious, hypocritical and scummy as all get-out (even though he really only does these videos on people that really, really, REALLY deserve them, and for good reason too)
Also, once again, a pretty pathetic amount of content compared to his other easily-just-as-good sagas of videos (literally only about a dozen videos at the moment, as opposed to the straight-up HUNDREDS of Kickstarter Crud and Bad Unboxing) - xandermartin98
