I rewatched Evangelion recently, I think just before it came out on Netflix, for the first time since I was 13 (Rebuild movies notwithstanding).  I was filled with apprehension, worried that it wouldn't live up to what I nostalgically remembered, but it really does stand on its own.  Even compared to the Rebuild movies, which unlike the show have bottomless budgets and timelines, I think the original comes out ahead, despite predating digital animation, CG, etc (comparing them purely on technical terms; the story of Rebuild is hot garbage).

To be honest, I didn't like the show much when I first saw it on Adult Swim; I was mostly interested in the giant robot fights, and all the psychodrama poo poo held no interest for me.  I loved End of Evangelion visually but the message went completely over my head.  I watched End of Eva again toward the end of college though, when I was definitely at the apex of my hermit lifestyle (and the nadir of my life overall), and it was like slap in the face.  It's definitely a guided message, and I think you have to be in the right place and time to receive it, or it's just gonna sound like pretentious nonsense.

DurhamrockerZ is the high mark of KotH poops, they'll come up in my recommendations every few months and I'll rewatch most of them.  Aliantos is good too.

My all-time favorite KotH video though is Hank's Back:

The fact that every character gets their own instrument is just one of the many things that makes it so great to me.  It's got layers.
