* Creator/BradJones' other flagship series, ''WebVideo/MidnightScreenings'', often had the car still being driven in early reviews, and the camera held in someone's hand, instead of having the car parked and the camera on the dashboard. Also, early episodes referred to Irving and Dave as "Virtual Boyd" and "Max Force" respectively. There was also the presence of [[ThePeteBest Jerrid]], who left the series after about a year due to a falling out between him and Brad (they have since reconciled, but other than a one-time return for ''Film/{{Warcraft|2016}}'', Jerrid has not done any more episodes). Also, the show initially focused on summertime releases only and usually had all of the members of Team Snob in the car at once, but it quickly changed to a year-round feature with most videos featuring only two at a time.

* ''WebVideo/ADoseOfBuckley: In his earliest videos, Buckley had his then-girlfriend make a witty remark at the start of the video to set the tone. After they broke up, he dropped the intro. Also, many of his early videos were less than two minutes long; now it's rare for him to do a video shorter than five minutes.

* The very first entry of ''AskANinja'' was much slower in pace, versus the later episodes which rely heavily on frenetic editing and rapid-fire comedy. The suit is also just two black shirts, one of them over his head (jeans can briefly be seen in some shots), and he is standing up and rarely moves his arms.

* Chuck E. Cheese's YouTuber Big Cheese's first few videos had him not speaking, the descriptions were simply just "Hi - Thanks for checking out my channel - It's all about the classic Chuck E. Cheese animatronic characters performing their latest songs. If you're a fan of Chuck E, Mr. Munch, Pasqually, Helen Henny and Jasper T. Jowls, you'll LOVE this channel. Next time you visit Chuck E. Cheese, save your receipt and take the online survey. Tell them how much you enjoy the animatronic stage show. Thanks, The "Big Cheese" :)", and it wasn't until the upload of the "Coconut" puppet skit that it was not simply that, and he did not use the "Remember, "It's Easy Being Chuck E Cheesy!" :)" stinger.

* ''WebVideo/TheHappyVideoGameNerd'': His earliest videos parody some elements of his inspiration, the AVGN. Eventually Derek gets rid of the skits, guest stars and wackiness and his reviews are more straight-forward. Ironically, much like the AVGN did ... for the most part. Derek doesn't always praise the games either, to which some viewers objected (see ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin below).

He mentions in his review of ''Eternal Darkness'' that viewers comment on his name as if that's his only modus operandi and that he should be praising games all the time. Instead, he reminds them that he's just honest about games he doesn't like but provides constructive criticism (backed by personal experience shown in the reviews) as to why that is.

* WebVideo/ToddInTheShadows hasn't changed massively, but his earlier videos tended to have skits and cameos from other Channel Awesome members. These more-or-less disappeared from his later videos, and the comedy comes entirely from Todd's snark. By now, with the possible exception of WebVideo/TheRapCritic, Todd is probably the most straightforward reviewer on the site. He also faced the right originally, instead of the left as he does now.

now. Also, until "Niggas in Paris", he only reviewed singles that he disliked; that and subsequent videos have had him occasionally feature a song that he actually likes.

* ''WebVideo/{{OnCinema}}'': The first season lacks the story arcs present in later seasons and generally focuses on reviewing movies in a similar fashion to the podcast series its based on. The recap episode released in between season 8 and 9 doesn't even say anything in particular about what happened in season 1 beyond explaining what the format of the show is suppose to be.
