What I respected the most about these videos is how the author handled juggling Thrall and Arthas together as primary characters in the early story. I have always been skeptical towards fanwank like "The Warcraft movie should have been WCIII, Arthas is THE Warcraft character", as I didn't think it possible to handle the campaigns well, mostly with Exodus of the Horde being so different from the Scourge of Lordaeron. However, Jose really worked hard to make them fit together, even setting up the "Grom troubled by demons" plot early by having him present in the Blackrock&Roll congregation before his capture.
Yeah, it's a very respectable effort, but some of his choices are really not to my liking, like the Grom one. I mean, why would Grom hang out with the Blackrocks and why would they allow him to be there considering he's Thrall's second? Even if Thrall sent him as a sort of ambassador or Grom sent himself in that position, it makes little sense that the Blackrocks would be ok with it and even let him leave. It's just a very strange change and it's not really very clear.
