I used to watch it, but I don't know how much duplicative pedal content most people can take. Pedals today are so derivative of a few staid designs that there just isn't any use for so much video production.
Granted, some innovation has come in the new century in the shape of Eventide and Strymon, those pushing the capability and functionality that can be fit into a single box. Things like the TimeFactor, TimeLine, Mobioius, etc have legitimately changed music. Modulation and Time-Based effects have gotten better in the last 20 years, but I'm not sure about the last 10. A video about the latest marshall in a box or A/Bing mid-heavy overdrives and RAT clones is not compelling viewing.
Nearly all the pedals getting reviewed on youtube these days are footnotes to designs from the 80s and 90s. Once you've seen a lot of it you don't need to see anymore.

I love TPS, Dan & Mick. I’ve learned a ton, I love Dan’s playing when they give him a good delay and time to bliss out, and I love their rapport and the fact that they seem like truly good guys.
My take is that the issue at heart is that any “going stale” is simply the perception of someone who’s followed a show like this—you start by hunting for videos on specific you’re interested in; then you explore some of their other content; if you then like the show, you stick around and follow a bit more routinely; after a while, you then diverge into either the camp I’m in (I watch because I actually enjoy and learn from their long conversations), or you split off because there are only so many times you listen to talk about another derivative overdrive or boost pedal—just like Chiefsfan15 said.
