"Beer's fine. Whisky's better." ― Drinker, setting the record straight
The Critical Drinker, or Drinker for short, is a film reviewer. He tends to cover failed new additions to old franchises, as well as films placing hamfisted political messages over other elements of the story. He also drinks a lot.

Christmas vs Halloween[edit | edit source]
Drinker is on Team Christmas.
History[edit | edit source]
PreFAP[edit | edit source]
Lengthy Introductions[edit | edit source]
Drinker first joined MauLer, Rags, and Wolf on EFAP 40, which began with the trio looking at a slurry of memes while the Drinker looked on in confused amusement. After the memes, the gang took a look at CryMor Gaming's "Doom Eternal Looks Terrible," with Jay joining them partway through, and Drinker related to CryMor's apparent bad history with poledancing and sausages. CryMor ended up coming onto the stream for a few minutes to talk about the video, and got along rather well with them. The gang then moved their attention to Schaffrillas Productions' video claiming The Last Jedi handled Luke Skywalker better than Avengers: Endgame handled Thor, and Shadiversity joined them, bringing with him the sounds of his children in the background. The gang generally agreed with the Thor section of Schaffrillas' video, but almost every sentence of the Luke portion launched a conversation about how poorly The Last Jedi handled his character. At one point, Drinker and the rest of the gang discussed whether a character can be portrayed as both a mentor and as someone who has to learn something, with Drinker saying no and the others saying yes, though Drinker eventually realized he agreed and was moreso objecting to the way The Last Jedi handled the concept specifically. Six and a half hours in, the gang took an intermission and picked up where they left off with EFAP 41, where they finished off Schaffrillas' video, and Drinker stepped out after commenting that they'd been streaming for so long that it had gone from daylight to night and back to daylight for him.
Spider Wars - Foreshadowing[edit | edit source]
During EFAP 41, Drinker made his dislike of Spider-Man: Homecoming known, foreshadowing the Spider-Wars and frustrating MauLer by erroneously claiming that the FBI was never called on Vulture when they were.
EFAP 50 - The One Year Anniversary of Pausing Every Frame[edit | edit source]
Drinker joined EFAP 50 about seven hours in, at the beginning of the meme section, once again finding himself out of the loop of the various in-jokes, though he could still appreciate the fanart.
He was present in 50-2 for HelloGreedo's "Everything You Think is Important is Not Important - Star Wars: The Last Jedi [SPOILERS]". He left around three hours into 50-2 during "STAR WARS: Why REY isn't A MARY SUE" after meeting PSA Stitch and Doomcock.
Back to Form[edit | edit source]
Drinker joined MauLer, Rags, and Fortea in EFAP 52 to take a closer look at The Closer Look, who had a strange way of speaking and wanted the finale of Avengers: Endgame to be more EPICK like Helm's Deep. The Closer Look ended up coming on the stream for a conversation and was very nice, and it was noted this was the second time this happened while Drinker was on.
The Joker War[edit | edit source]
"Well, joke's on you Bob, because we're not black so we don't have to laugh at your jokes."
Drinker joined MauLer, Rags, Weekend Warrior, and Doomcock on EFAP 57 to take a look at The Young Turks' video "Why This 'Joker' is a Real LOSER," which claimed that Joker has a problem with black women, and minorities in general, who won't laugh at his jokes. After this they moved to the main attraction, MovieBob's Joker review, where Bob claimed the movie was a substanceless ripoff of about 20 other movies without saying why that is.
Order 66[edit | edit source]
"It's trying to stop pissing like, mid-stream, you know it just - 'I already started, now I have to finish'"
- Drinker, on Palpatine's Force lightning
Drinker joined an ensemble cast in the aftermath of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker to comb through the story for everything that went wrong in EFAP 66. He managed to stay for six hours of laughter and merriment before calling it a night. Before he left he cast his vote for General Hux as the most inconsistent character in the trilogy.
EFAP 76[edit | edit source]
EFAP 83[edit | edit source]
Drinker introduced the gang to the seven-cylinder revolver, an unconventional yet highly powerful weapon.
EFAP 86, 95, 96, 98[edit | edit source]
EFAP 100 - The Two Year Anniversary of Pausing Every Frame[edit | edit source]
Drinker, alongside WorldClassBullshitters, joined seven and a half hours into Part 1 of EFAP 100, right at the tail end of a conversation about pedophilia. He joined MauLer, Rags, Metal, WCB, Cynical Reviews, and MarctheCyborg in watching Ben Shapiro's ranking of the Star Wars films, then stayed around with Literature Devil, MarkAfterDark, and Voxis to watch AJ "Toxic Brood" Carabello give a middling review of The Rise of Skywalker, before congratulating the gang on 100 episodes and heading out.
