This is a normal post I enjoy numberphile, but that is just bad.
Certain effective presentational styles are not transferable between subject matters.

This is a normal post I'm not so sure
I enjoy watching people who do something well, doing what they do well.

Largely, those people have back-stories, and sometimes they show us those.

I think you're being too hard on him - you don't want to watch non-maths related content..? Fine.
But I think this is better than Gryff-Rhys Jones (or, god forbid, Portillo) on a train to Somewhere Forrin espousing for the sake of it.

Yeah yeah, I'm not setting the bar too high,I know.....

This is a normal post I like Portillo on the train. Giff Gaff Jones has not held my attention for more than a minute since the eighties.

This is a normal post A lot of people like you are into trains and Conservatism.
I shall never forgive Portillo for agreeing to do "Things We Forgot To Remember." He didn't just agree to do it, which would be bad enough, but he gleefully asked that stupid cunting question more than twice per episode.

There are a number of other things I shall never forgive him for, like homophobic hypocrisy and all the other nasty shit he supported in the 90s. But come on. Things We Forgot To Remember? Cuuuuuuuunt.

This is a normal post It's not as good as a lot of Tom Scott videos
I like a lot of his videos. Good, bite-size nuggets of info, mostly. Nowadays, Numberphile is reaching for 30 mins info, which is still good, but becomes TL;DW, which is a shame, because they're not the rambling, anecdotal-laden drivel, which plagues YouTube.

This is a normal post Yeah - this guy's turning into a bit of a d*ck
Another sanctimonious, self-serving monologue in the video before, too: youtu.be/L-x8DYTOv7w

I've got no idea who this guy is or why so many people here seem to be down on him, but I enjoyed that.

This is a normal post Watch his maths videos. They’re really good.

Maths videos sound fucking boring if I'm honest. Like maybe if it's 3am and I still can't sleep, I'll be choosing between the guy who does videos about the underground and maths videos, and maybe then I'll give it a go.

This is a normal post I’m disappointed but not surprised that my ringing endorsement is not enough to sway you.
You probably find chess boring too, which is a shame as his video on the knight’s tour is fascinating. Seriously.

This is a normal post I find him a bit smug somehow but worth enduring for the content of his vids
Like that cringey vsauce guy.

This is a normal post I can't watch vsauce. Intolerably smug.
I feel a fantastic urge to punch him in his stupid face.

This is a normal post Isn't it down to YouTube algorithms though?
I've heard complaints from people that short films don't get ranked as high as longer ones (with more adverts) so fewer people are working on quick animations or short explanations and instead making longer and longer products. This does explain a lot of the drivel that seems to be going into stuff now and would explain why this guy isn't doing really pithy little 3 minute vids any longer.
