What Happened to I Rate the 80's?
You know, it's been a while since Chris posted an I Rate the 80's video. Last one was about Uncle O'Grimacey back in March, and that was technically an "I Rate the 70's".
Let's check his site and see what happened.
What's that? You clicked the link and were redirected right here? How strange! Actually, here's what happened. Chris, being the punctual man that he is, let the iratethe80s domain name expire. So Uatu the Watcher swooped in and grabbed the name, now it redirects here. The best part? Chris doesn't know yet (he will soon since I know he reads this), and the links are still all over his YouTube channel. Under the "About" page, and in the descriptions of all the I Rate the 80's videos. Chris, what the hell are you doing? This makes me wonder if I Rate the 80's is yet another dead series. Just like the Breakfast Rants (which became I Rate the 80's) and Chris & Scottie Road Trip (remember that he had a website for it). What I find strange is that he abandoned this series instead of the ghost hunting or History of Video Games. This series seemed to be the most "well-received" (and I'm using that lightly). People that didn't like his game reviews claimed that the 80's videos weren't that bad. Even Shawn McMahon over at TotalActionAdventure considers I Rate the 80's to be the "least awful" series Bores has done. Because Bores at least showed some genuine interest in what he was talking about. Sure the videos were plagued with the same problems as his game reviews, but they didn't feel as phony. Speaking of History of Video Games, my Facebook informant noted that Chris said he'll be "focusing on a few episodes in 2014" after he finishes up some other projects. Give it up Chris, the series was always a bad idea and it still is a bad idea. Why do you insist on continuing it? Also, a few episodes huh? That probably means one. Has he still not posted any new videos? God damn.
