Old School Lane's Nickelodeon Tribute is No More

Hey guys, I'm sure you've probably have been noticing that I haven't posted a review of a Nickelodeon show or movie for around a few months. Well, to be quite honest, we have been quite burned out with covering only Nickelodeon stuff. It's also a reason why we've been discussing about other topics recently such as the controversy of Metroid Prime Federation Force and the top 10 TOME: Terrain of Magical Expertise episodes. We decided to cover other topics besides Nickelodeon and broaden our interests to other forms of movies, TV shows, video games, and everything else in between. After all, that's been Old School Lane's motto for almost 4 years. So, as of now, the Nickelodeon tribute is no more.

Now just because the tribute is no more, that doesn't mean we'll never cover Nickelodeon stuff again. We will, don't worry. In fact, we have a few more projects involving with Nickelodeon coming soon. But just don't expect it to be the meat and potatoes behind Old School Lane. I'm sure that a lot of you guys are very upset about this news, especially to the people who have been following our work because of our Nickelodeon content. But we're sorry. It just became less and less interesting as time went on. It was originally supposed to be a summer retrospective, but then due to our busy lives with work, school, and personal issues, it lasted far longer than we wanted. At some point, I want to go back and start again from the ground up and do what I originally wanted to do: a full blown retrospective via video discussing about the show's history from its past and present inspired by GameTrailers' retrospective videos and Gexup's Gaming in the 90's videos. But that won't be coming anytime soon. That's going to require a ton of work, time, and research.

I hope that you guys can understand our decision and won't get too upset. I feel that this decision will be a fresh start for Old School Lane covering more broader topics. We'll be doing a Casual Chats about the 90's Steven Spielberg cartoons, The Nightmare on Elm Street franchise, Jem and the Holograms, and many more. We'll be interviewing more people whom we respect their work and projects. We might even cover the more recent shows and movies such as The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, Doctor Who, the Marvel movies, and so much more. We hope you look forward to what we have planned.

Hope to see you around Old School Lane soon. Thanks for reading.

  1. I’m sorry to hear that you’re feeling burnt out but I can certainly understand it. I’ve been running the Classic Nickelodeon Fan Blog since 2009 and at times my posts have been very thin. Personally I’ve found a new breath for my blog and feel very strongly about it and post at least once a week with my Classic Nick Rocks and twice a month with my Special Deliveries. I also think that there have been updates to a couple of the Pinwheel Cartoons has helped tremendously as well. Those of course being Paddington Bear and Curious George and let’s not forget Dougal from a few years ago.

    Sometimes you just need a break to think about your blog and get a new prospective about it. Have you tried joining all of the Nickelodeon pages and groups on Facebook? Or even a lot of the ‘80’s and ‘90’s groups are a wealth of information and inspiration and can help you see the network with fresh eyes. I know one group/page I’m following has the YCDTOTV face (Les Lye’s) as their profile picture! All they did was erase the You Can’t Do That On Television words and write their logo on it.

    Anyway, I hope that you guys are able to take a rest and will be able to come back well rested and stronger than ever. :)

    1. Thank you so much, Peggy Sue! Really appreciate it! :)
