I too have opinions about RT.
I was in the room when Monty (RIP) debuted RWBY’s first few minutes of episode 1 at a panel at RTX2013. I was excited for it but once it finally came out I realized after a few episodes it had a real problem establishing rules in this universe and following them. Everything, especially with the action, was just cool for cool’s sake and I can totally understand if someone doesn’t care about that and even enjoys that but I for me it was a real barrier to get into the show and I stopped watching.
I’ve actually completely stopped watching RT content, I watched Laser Team out of curiosity and because I have a Red subscription but that is the last thing I watched of theirs. I do feel a little guilty, I have a friend (more of an acquaintance these days) that works there as an editor for AH so I sometimes think I should be watching but there’s just so much to watch already and I don’t put them on the backlog because haven’t liked what they do anymore.
I will admit I harbor some resentment towards RT from the slow slide they facilitated in their community from a fun and inclusive one to, last time I interacted with it, a very toxic one. That resentment might be painting my opinion of their content, but then again their shift to more broadly appealing content I have little reverence for is a throughline to their shitty combative community these days IMO.
