I realize this is my failing and not VICE's but their videos are longer than my attention span.

I thought about posting this in the "What are you currently watching on TV" thread, but it didn't seem right. So, this is a thread to post about what TV shows you are watching on YouTube.

I'm currently watching Dr Katz on YouTube. Earlier I was watching CrossBalls.

I really feel like Dr Katz should be a little tougher on his son Ben.

king kong 2005 was my sadest movie I ever watch because of the lizard attacking the girl and the sound afefects of the lizard dieing it make my cry.

The youngest Weaseling is wanting me to create a channel for her so she can upload all the cool videos she's made over the last 2 days. I'm kinda hoping she forgets about it. She's 8 and I don't know that I want her out there.

Youtube has been really shitty lately. No communication. It wouldn't surprise me if the top youtubers get organized and move to something else soon.

big fan of these channels, though vsauce hasn't had much lately it seems. also their videos were starting to get really long and in depth - tough to absorb in bite size chunks like i prefer with my youtube vids.

Some other sciency/learning channels you might enjoy:
Kurzgesagt
RealLifeLore
Wendover Productions
BBC Earth Lab

I've noticed a lot of videos getting longer. Some have actually referenced making videos at least 10 minutes long "because of YouTube's algorithm." Kind of a shame, b/c if I had a long attention span, I wouldn't use YouTube as my entertainment.

KaptainKristian is an awesome video that digs into brilliant minutia of music, tv, and movies. I highly recommend it.
