YouTube watch channels I can't stand

YouTube for me is a source of entertainment and I enjoy a good show. Sadly, there are plenty of channels that I don't watch because I can't stand the YT personality that runs the show. Being a terrible person I even classified my dislikes:

Image

The used car salesman

I don't like to be shouted at. These are the YT personalities that speak too loud and too fast, they are unnecessary argumentative and too much in my face. They get the ax.

The tour guide

I'm here for the watches, not for looking at you from the other side of a selfie stick while you go about your business and discuss your life decisions. You get the ax.

The wallpaper flower

For the love of God, how difficult can it be to adjust your volume or invest in a better microphone? I'm done playing silent service and I don't want to turn the CC on so you get the ax.

Image

The muppet show

Honestly, watching two hands roaming across the screen while listening to a disembodied voice is creepy. You get the ax.

The lazy bastard

Do you like reviewers that do nothing more than regurgitating press releases or reading the manufacturer's spec sheets? I don't and neither should you. A quick trick to spot them is finding if they reviewed the Seiko SPB143 and listen to what they say about the thickness because the number stated on Seiko web site is pure fiction. I have no need for a reviewer that can't be bothered to use calipers so you get the ax.

I respect that about you.

I respect that about you. 

To be fair there are a number of YT reviewers that I like watching. Jody from JOMW has an excellent presentation style. TGV is very smooth in front of the camera. Ben from Ben's watch club is hilarious, Peter Kotsa, IDGuy and YoureTerrific are all liked and a treat to follow, to name just a few.

You sound like just my kind of person. Interested in coming to the London Meetup? 😆

Isn't Peter Kotsa 'The Muppet show'? Though he does have a good voice, so maybe he gets a pass.

Ben is pretty hilarious, but I like him because he reviews watches regardless how of obscure the brand may be. I'm sure if something was dropped in his mail slot in the middle of the night, he'd still review it. 😉

He does get a pass because of his voice and I still hope he will redeem himself like IDGuy did this year.

That's true, and I admire him for publishing his video on the review for pay business.

But TGV also has his T-Rex muppet...? 😜

Funny categories and there's a lot of truth in there!

Like anything, the watch YouTubers that I've been exposed to have their strengths and weaknesses. I think Nico Leonard yells and curses too much, but he can be funny at times and is a definite Rolex and AP aficionado and expert. Teddy B's and Mark from Long Island Watch have videos that really teach me a lot about watches and the watch industry as a newer enthusiast and Teddy's videos feel very polished. The Mad Watch Collector is hilarious and puts a lot of heart in his videos. Random Rob is down to earth and presents affordable watches, but sometimes I find his videos a tad bit dull. Jody from JOMW seems like a great guy and I like his style, but he covers Seiko a little too much at the expense of other brands (same criticism for Random Rob). WatchChris and Dave from Just the Watch cover a lot of micros that I otherwise would never be exposed to, but they might be a little too positive. I like the banter and perspectives of About Effing Time, but sometimes I feel like I'm being pushed to purchase a Bamford watch or consume Bark and Jack and Time + Tide. I could go on and on...but I won't. 

In general, I enjoy learning and being entertained. I find value in most of the watch YouTubers and each bring their own expertise and flair. Plus is I find a certain personality doesn't scratch my watch itch, I just move on.

Archie Bunker is alive and well!!  lol

It sounds like you are YouTube's version of the guy who yells at the kids to get off his lawn.  lmao.  lol.  Just having fun, but man, you are hard to please.  lol

My brother from another mother🤝!!! Ben is definitely a favorite, just had to refer to his Spaghetti Scametti recently in a post. JOMW has that Steve Irwin statue on top the bookcase and ummmm...I kinda want it.
