The Nostalgia Chick
Over the summer of 2008, the The Nostalgia Critic put out a search for a female counterpart. After the contest was over, it turned out that counterpart would be none other than Lindsay Ellis a.k.a. TheDudette a.k.a. The Nostalgia Chick. Several episodes have been produced by Lindsay.
The show started out much like that of her male counterpart. The only difference? She reviewed the shows and movies targeted to female audiences since Doug had never watched them growing up. In fact, that was how the search for the Nostalgia Chick began. In August of 2008, Doug got tired of getting requests for shows he never saw since he is a guy. So, a contest was held to find the Nostalgia Chick. Lindsay won and in no time at all, the series began.
After a few episodes, her friends Antonella Inserra and Elisa Hansen, among others, became fixtures of the show itself. Nella in particular is often Lindsay's beleaguered best friend, appearing in videos alongside her friend.
After a few years, the Nostalgia Chick drifted away from acting as a direct female counterpart to the Nostalgia Critic. In the process, she abandoned routines she had previously taken from his series. Her videos now spend more time critiquing the subject than summarizing it. Several of her friends get to shine as original characters. Lindsay also no longer limits herself to girly shows and movies.
As the Nostalgia Chick, Lindsay also teamed with Doug to review "Ferngully: The Last Rainforest" and in the Year One brawl, which celebrated TGWTG.com's first birthday, as well as the Kickassia crossover.
|Episode Number||Name||Summary||Date Released|
|Special||The Contest Announcement||This was the contest that started it all. The Search For The Nostalgia Chick! Tired of people requesting girls' shows and movies, Doug kicked things off with a search for a female counterpart!||August 10th, 2008|
|Special||The Crowning Ceremony||To settle the three-way tie between TheDudette, ThatChickWithTheGoggles and Marzgurl, The Critic picked TheDudette to win the contest!||September 15th, 2008|
|1||Pocahontas (1995)||This was the first Nostalgia Chick review and was the one to get TheDudette onto the site. This was also the first time her "Puppies!" running gag was used.||September 16th, 2008|
|2||Teen Witch (1989)||Lindsay was immediately turned off by Louise's selfishness right from the start of the movie. She criticizes the character's messiah complex and in the end feels the movie lacks plot and any resolution.||September 20th, 2008|
|3||Anastasia (1997)||The Chick sees this movie as Don Bluth surrendering to the power of Disney. The music and animation were good in her view, though. ThatGuyWithTheGlasses has a guest spot as Rasputin and Lenin.||October 6th, 2008)|
|4||She-Ra: Princess of Power (1985)||The Chick laments how the show was just a female version of her popular male counterpart, He-Man, and failed to make a significant impact. She also wasn't a fan of the movie's fake-outs.||October 23rd, 2008|
|5||Hocus Pocus (1993)||The Chick feels that this movie teaches children to lose their virginity quickly, which would be unusual for Disney. She also criticizes the witches' acting almost like pedophiles.||October 31st, 2008|
|6||Top 11 Nostalgic Villainesses||Lindsay lists the greatest villainesses of all time.
||November 17th, 2008|
|7||Spice World (1998)||Lindsay accuses the movie of promoting stereotypes and sending out the message that objectifying the opposite sex is fine if it's woman objectifying men. Also, the movie appears to have several sub-plots without having a main plot, constantly injects random scenes that make no sense and basically attempts to portray the Spice Girls as near-gods. Still, the band did promote the ideal that friendship never ends (ironic for a band whose members can't stand to be in the same room together nowadays) and also starred Meat Loaf... much to Lindsay's delight!||December 13th, 2008|
|8||Top 10 Disturbing and Inescapable Christmas Songs||The Chick lists her choices for the Top 10 Disturbing and Inescapable Christmas Songs. This was the first times her BFF, Nella, and another friend, Elisa Hansen, made personal appearances.
||December 24th, 2008|
|9||Labyrinth (1986)||Despite being entranced by David Bowie, the Chick criticizes Jennifer Connelly's acting ability. This was the first time she used "Big Lipped Alligator Moment" after her and The Nostalgia Critic review of "Ferngully: The Last Rainforest". Overall, she said the movie was lovably weird.||March 22th, 2009|
|10||Thumbelina (1994)||Lindsey starts off by looking at the fact that Don Bluth's movies always seem to do well at the box-office at around the same time that Disney is in trouble and vice-versa (you need to count the PIXAR movies too though) and with that, the Chick takes a look at Thumbelina. Annoyed with the main character's pessimism, Lindsay attempts to make sense of this movie as it copies Disney's films in many ways (hell, Thumbelina is voiced by Jodi Benson, who also voiced Ariel in The Little Mermaid). In her view, the movie was just bad!||April 25th, 2009|
|11||The Babysitters Club (1995)||A look at the girl-targeted book-series-turned-movie. The Chick comments that series had a pretty genius way to appeal to girls by writing about stereotypical, relatable young women who both make friends and play with children. She notes that the movie goes into no detail at all about how the club was formed and has plenty of subplots instead of one main plot. The Chick finds that Jessie's lines are very cheesy, the subplot of Krissy bonding with her father has some unintentional innuendo, and Stacey's diabetes are treated like its a terminal disease. She also has trouble understanding the rap used to help Claudia with her test and the reasons for giving the greenhouse to the child-hating Mrs. Haberman. She occasionally plays music from Psycho to accompany footage of the children, who she finds more evil than the antagonists.||May 12th, 2009|
|12||Spooning With Spoony||Part of the Year One crossover event with Spoony and ThatChickWithTheGoggles.||May 18th, 2009 and was part of the Year One crossover event.|
|13||Top 11 Embarrassing Nostalgic Dance Crazes||Lindsay and Nella go over the top 11 Nostalgic and Embarrassing Dance Crazes.
||June 5th, 2009|
|14||Xanadu (1980)||The Chick reviews what she thought was a science fiction movie and instead turns into something more dreadful. Not so much full of Big Lipped Alligator Moments, but rather the whole thing could be considered a Big Lipped Alligator Movie.||June 13th, 2009|
|15||Spooning With Spoony Bloopers||Bloopers from Spooning With Spoony. Because the viewers asked for it!||June 20th, 2009|
|16||Transformers (1984-1990)||Lindsay reviews the phenomenon of Transformers from their rise in the 1980s to today. The Critic also cameos. The review accumulates in a review of the 1986 Transformers movie.||June 27th, 2009|
|17||Armageddon (1998)||Awakening from a bad movie coma after seeing Revenge of the Fallen, Lindsay takes a look at "Armageddon" starring Bruce Willis. Notable for it's extremely racist opening scene, the high amount of scientific errors it contains, the fact that neither Ben Affleck nor Liv Tyler can act, and for the fact that the movie actually goes rapidly downhill once the protagonists blast into space.||September 9th, 2009|
|18||Armageddon (1998) Part 2||The second part of her review of Armageddon goes over the plot and more explosions. By the end, she admits it feels good to review boy stuff. So, she begins to frolic in a meadow when NC himself ambushes her!||September 25th, 2009|
|19||Bratz (2007)||The Critic exacts his revenge on the Chick by keeping her in his basement and forces her to watch the 2007 Bratz movie. She endures the movie and tries to find a way out at the same time. Eventually, she reviewed the film and found the movie to be a landmark in bad movies for kids.||October 9th, 2009|
|20||Mulan (1998)||Donning the glasses again, Lindsay takes on a movie she admits she likes. Although, it does suffer from a few things like sidekickitis, and some historical things are wrong like what happened in Pocahontas.||October 24th, 2009|
|21||Extemporaneous Last Unicorn (1980)||Lindsay and her friend, Lauren take a hike in the woods and discuss "The Last Unicorn" and review it while on a search for the creature.||November 13th, 2009|
|22||Earth Girls Are Easy (1988)||Lindsay takes a look at the Comedy Central staple where young Damon Wayons and Jim Carrey starred alongside Jeff Goldblum. She takes a look at the movie and says it wasn't all bad and lamented how aliens are still cool and wanted to be with them. But she describes it as a Julie Brown vanity project and criticises the moral of the story.||December 4th, 2009|
|23||Disney Princesses||'Disney Princess' used to be a term, then some executive at Disney decided there was money to be made and turned it into a brand. NChick looks at princesses over the years from Snow White to women in Disney movies who may or may not be considered princesses (for instance, Mulan is included and Alice sometimes makes the line-up despite not being princesses, yet Kida and Eilonwy are princesses and are no-where to be found). She examined their popularity and how they are now with all the merchandise they are on.||December 13th, 2009|
|24||Beauty and the Beast Enchanted Christmas||What's Christmas without Beauty and the Beast? Lindsay looks at the Disney story. One of the first Disney sequels, the Chick looks at how exceptionally poor this film is, the major problem being that it is neither a sequel nor a prequel; the events take place during the events of the first film, thereby robbing it of any tension it may have had. The Chick notes that despite Beauty and the Beast being one of her favourite films she was unable to watch it for a year after seeing The Enchanted Christmas, and ends the review with the lesson that if you really like a certain Disney film, it's probably a good idea to give the sequel a miss.||December 25th, 2009|
|25||Dragonheart (1996)||Take Sean Connery plus a dragon and you get something that kicks ass, right? Sadly no as Lindsay found that not even that could save a movie full of bad acting. Even if it had Sean Connery voicing one of the first CGI creations on film.||January 9th, 2010|
|26||The Smurfette Principle||Lindsay talks about the history of female characters in animation in the United States.||January 29th, 2010|
|27||Titanic (1997)||With Avatar overtaking the record set for highest-grossing film by Titanic, NChick decides to look back at the story of the doomed lovers aboard the sinking ship, the success of the movie and its director, James Cameron. Oh, and she also looks at female leads in movies.||February 13th, 2010|
|28||My Little Pony||Boys had He-Man and Transformers, girls had My Little Pony... sometimes life just isn't fair. Also featuring a story by Nella!||February 26th, 2010|
|29||Showgirls Begins||Showgirls! Better known as the film which destroyed Elizabeth Berkley's career, Lindsay decides to take a look at the story of a Nomi Malone (get it?), who travels to Las Vegas to be a stripper and seediness ensues. Of course, since blip.tv doesn't allow nudity or graphic scenes, Lindsay's got Team NChick to help her act some some parts of the film.||March 24th, 2010|
|30||Showgirls The Revenge||Back to Showgirls, where everybody's got AIDS and shit. Team NChick take on the rest of the movie. And use creative censors!||April 8th, 2010|
|31||Blonde Girls Now and Then, or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Ke$ha||Blonde pop stars then and now!||May 7th, 2010|
|32||Ever After||Cinderella stories over the years.||May 28th, 2010|
|33||Grease||NChick takes a look at Grease, and wonders what makes it a classic despite containing so many flaws. Meanwhile, Elisa becomes the Makeover Fairy for the first time, and tries as hard as she can to makeover Nella.||June 4th, 2010|
|34||Dune||Lindsay tries to make sense out of this strange sci-fi movie. At least it has Patrick Stewart! And Sting!
Note: This episode was removed from TGWTG after Lindsay's viewers gave strong backlash/she developed a particular bad taste for the episode, admitting she had filmed it while drunk and didn't understand or give the movie proper credit.
|July 4th, 2010|
|35||Hercules||Hercules... looks pretty, but isn't considered a Disney classic. NChick takes a look at why.||July 30th, 2010|
|36||Playing God||Lindsay brings SCIENCE!!! Doctors Tease and Block guest-star for the first time.||August 20th, 2010|
|37||Special: Inside the NChick Labs||With the newest season or NChick approaching, BFF Nella and the NChick team prepare by discussing MacGuffins, how to spot an evil person by the color of their clothing and, most importantly, not mentioning the Rape Rap.||November 20th, 2010|
|38||Man in the Iron Mask||Lindsay is back with a Malkovich review that will Malkovich even the Malkovich Malkovich Malkovich...||December 3rd, 2010|
|39||Dreamworks Vs. Disney: Rise of the Eyebrow||See the origins of their epic rivalry in part 1!||December 17th, 2010|
|40||Disney Vs. Dreamworks: Dualing||While Dreamworks might have finally found an identity distinct from Disney and Pixar, can we ever forgive them for the Will Smith Fish?||December 24th, 2010|
|41||The Fifth Element||Dissect the plot elements with Lindsay in The Fifth Element, the weirdest normal movie (or the most normal weird movie?) ever made.
Note: This epiosde was removed from TGWTG a year after it's release. Lindsey admitted to also hating this episode in it's execution and how it talked about the movie. As well as the inclusion of the actor who played the Macguffin Man (another reason the Dune video was taken down) who was an associate of Lindsey who wanted screentime in her videos she admits she shouldn't of given any.
|January 21st, 2011|

|44||Top Ten Evil Nostalgic Characters||Dark Nella returns to exact revenge on our heroes! How will they combat this quasi dimensional cosmic being?!||March 5th, 2011|
|45||Disaster Movies of Roland Emmerich Part 1||While Dark Nella exacts her revenge on major cities and well-known landmarks of the United States, Lindsay takes a look back at the disaster movies of auteur, Roland Emmerich.||March 19th, 2011|
|46||Disaster Movies of Roland Emmerich Part 2||An episode what had to be broken into two parts because there's just so much to say on the likes of Independence Day and 2012! Also chase scenes in high heels and impractically skimpy dresses.||March 26th, 2011|
|47||The Craft||Science faltered in the battle against Dark Nella, so the ladies turn to magick (with a k) with The Craft, the film embodiment of your teenage "witch phase." You had one. Admit it.||April 9th, 2011|
|49||Tron||Dark Nella is disgusted by the nerdiest of all nerd schlock, Tron, and intends to destroy it. You know, before she destroys everything else.||April 30th, 2011|
|50||Newsies||The Dark Nella finale is here! Lindsay examines Newsies, arguably Disney's most well-known non-animated musical (starring a then-young Christian Bale), about the horrors of child labor at the turn of the century; a silly movie that nonetheless makes the fangirls... squee.||May 13th, 2011|
|51||Les Miserables The Musical||Lindsay takes a look at that most massive of stage musicals, Les Miserables, both making JewWario miserable in the process and inspiring the Nostalgia Critic, Obscurus Lupa, Phelous and many others to sing along!||June 4th, 2011|
|52||Jem and the Holograms||Lindsay gets an 80s makeover in the theme of Jem, the Holograms and the Misfits. It's outrageous. Truly, truly, truly outrageous.||June 18th, 2011|
|53||The Little Mermaid||For those that don't know, Lindsay hates The Little Mermaid. I mean, she REALLY hates it. But what justification does she have for despising the Disney movie that was so popular that it kicked off the Disney Renaissance? (Lindsay would rather credit Roger Rabbit with that achievement, though.) Nella and Elisa bring together Obscurus Lupa, MarzGurl, PushinUpRoses and Diamanda Hagan and hold an intervention to try and bring her round to their way of thinking and make her part of their world.||July 10, 2011|
|Special||Improvised Singing and Outtakes from Jem||See what went into making the Jem review!||July 12th, 2011|

|Special||Captain America||Team Nostalgia Chick, ToddInTheShadows and Obscurus Lupa sit down to talk about seeing the new Marvel mega blockbuster||July 22nd, 2011|
|Special||The Spider-Man Musical Review||Spider-Man: Turn off the Dark, the the most infamous disaster on Broadway since the Titanic Musical! Lindsay, Todd and Lupa speak talk about their reactions after seeing the performance. From the good songs to the bad, to the pretty shaky reasoning as to why Peter becomes a hero, to the fact that the Green Goblin is (and always was) the Best Damn Thing about the show. MY BAAAAABY!||July 30th, 2011|
|55||TLC and the '90s||Lindsay looks back at a band from her childhood, TLC, from their humble beginnings as a band that was best known for promoting safe sex into a highly successful serious girl group that didn't have to shout 'Girl Power' to become famous.

At the end of the video, the Makeover Fairy informs The Chick that she does not review many girly things anymore, so she promises to rectify this with reviews of every Meg Ryan movie ever made!||August 27th, 2011|
|58||Sleepless in Seattle vs. When Harry Met Sally||As the onslaught of Meg Ryan romantic comedies begins, the question is begged: What IS a chick flick, anyway?

September 18th, 2011
|60||City of Angels||Here, The Chick struggles to define City of Angels. Is it a thought provoking drama? Contrived and cheap Hollywood schlock? Or simply a venue to show us Nicolas Cage's sex face?||September 24th, 2011|
|61||Kate & Leopold||The Chick's wade through Meg Ryan's filmography comes to an end! Now, she must discuss the ridiculousness of a lordly Hugh Jackman coming from the past to court Meg Ryan. This could the most gratuitous, idiotic movie ever made be- wait... fresh, creamery butter? Hugh Jackman's charm could redeem this movie in the eyes of girls and boys alike!||October 1st, 2011|
|62||Cruel Intentions||Back in the late nineties, a lot of classic literature was remade with teenages, and the Chick takes a look at what was probably the worst that could be chosen to set in high school. A remake of a remake of Dangerous Liasions (that became well-known partly due to a lesbian kiss in the middle), Lindsay looks at the acting... in particular, the fact that Sarah Michelle Gellar cannot play a three-dimensional villain. After comparing the film to its predecessor, the Chick states that Cruel Intentions isn't a terrible film but is a pretty shallow remake with no real effort put into it.||October 9th, 2011|
|63||Lion King||The beloved, not-so beloved, much griped-about Disney classic has been rereleased in 3D! But does the 3D add anything that wasn't already there, and is the Lion King really as great as we remember?||October 23rd, 2011|
|64||The Worst Witch||The bar is set for low standards for kids films. Guest starring the Nostalgia Critic as a fffffabulous Tim Curry impersonator.||October 30th, 2011|
|65||Crossroads||Todd and the Chick team up to review Crossroads, a Britney Spears vehicle that was made just as her career was starting to hit the skids. Together they find out what happens when a coming-of-age film/vanity project tries to handle tough issues like parental abandonment, date rape, teenage pregnancy, adoption and miscarriage and fails completely...||November 13th, 2011|

Lindsay takes a look at Daria's origins as a side-character on Beavis and Butt-head, her dry and possibly condescending personality, her relationships with her family and friends, Two particular subjects that are examined are Daria's friendship with Jane (which is considered by Lindsay and many others to be the strongest aspect of the show) and her relationship with Tom in the final season (in particular, the fact that Daria essentially stole him from Jane who got over it afterwards). In the end, Lindsay declares Daria to be a excellent show for its time with only a couple of dud episodes and a satisfying finale.||December 18th, 2011|
