Admitting you have a problem is the first step.
It all depends on what he means by "criticizing." Even my favorite comics, movies, video games, etc. all have flaws. It's only by acknowledging and accepting those flaws that I can appreciate a work in its entirety. That doesn't mean I'm "hating on" the work, as modern vernacular might say. It's just that I can view something through the lens of critical analysis.
Yes, turn back. The next step on the slippery slope is enjoying things ironically.
At best you've become incredibly cynical. At worst everything sucks nowadays.
Unfortunately, I think we're more at the latter than the former.
He's even criticizing himself poor guy.
At least he's enjoying himself.
