* While [[Website/SomethingAwful Lowtax]]'s first three "LetsPlay ''CryOfFear''" videos were surprisingly well received, it wasn't until [[WebAnimation/TheFlashTub Dave "Shmorky" Kelly]] took up the second microphone that ''GamingGarbage'' became a possibility.

* While not ''bad'' in the least, WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic was a little less focused in subject matter at the start of his show. He found his footing and niche sometime after starting up Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses.com and uploading to Blip.tv. A good bet would be his review of ''TheWizard'' or ''Film/BatmanAndRobin''. His yelling felt less like pathetic whining and more hammy and over-the-top, more visual gags were in place and the increased time limit of Blip meant he could focus on more aspects of the film. Both reviews had gags that still resonate two years later. Creator/DougWalker feels somewhat embarrassed when commentating on his review for ''CartoonAllStarsToTheRescue'' in 2010, spending most of the review explaining what he hadn't got right with the Nostalgia Critic character.

* TheNewAdventuresOfCaptainS grew the beard with episode 6, ''Nigel Strikes Back'', when it became DarkerAndEdgier, focussed more on the characters' motivations and generally gave more reasons to the audience to care more about the events of the series.

* The second episode of ''WebVideo/DemoReel'' cut down on the the length of the movie parodies and instead focused on the characters growing to care about each other. It also treated the movie (''WreckItRalph'') with affection other than looking at it from a film critic's point of view, and got a rocky theme tune.

* ''TribeTwelve'' started out as ''WebVideo/MarbleHornets'' lite, but has been steadily improving, culminating in the series [[spoiler:developing [[TimeyWimeyBall a massive, convoluted time travel plot,]] introducing a [[MindScrew particularly unusual case]] of FutureMeScaresMe]] [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking and]] obtaining [[VisualEffectsOfAwesome absolutely spectacular special effects...]] and it's ''[[CrowningMomentOfAwesome still somewhat easy to follow.]]''

* ''WebVideo/PopQuizHotshot'' the pilot got a really bad reception, with even people who made it admitting TheyJustDidntCare. The second episode was deemed a lot better, with WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic using his FriendlessBackground to kidnap people, General Anesthetic actually having lines, the guests getting points if they make Critic laugh, and the fact that Doug added more HomoeroticSubtext didn't hurt in the slightest.

* ''LetsPlay/TwitchPlaysPokemonCrystal'' started out suffering from being the sequel to the [[ToughActToFollow famously insane]] [[LetsPlay/TwitchPlaysPokemonRed original]]. The Mob spent a lot of time [[BaseBreaker tearing itself apart over Lazergator]], with many wanting to release him to make the game harder, but others wanting to keep him. When they [[WhamEpisode accidentally released]] [[EnsembleDarkhorse Togepi]] instead, the [[KickTheMoralityPet resultant shock and regret]] caused a new RageAgainstTheHeavens plot to form in contrast to the old one's [[EveryoneIsJesusInPurgatory aburdist theological journey]].

* WebVideo/MarzGurl had reviews of some rather unremarkable animes early on during her time on [= TGWTG =]; one of her few claims to fame was having blue hair. In early 2011, she started reviewing the ''entirety'' of the ''LandBeforeTime'' series, including the short-lived TV show and some video games. As it went on, some of her fellow reviewers begged her to stop for her own sanity. Afterwards, she has started reviewing more mainstream animated films, such as documenting Creator/DonBluth's career.

* WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall was pretty much just like any other review show for its first several months, though a very good one. And then Mechakara appeared, helping the show stand out from the pack with its genuinely suspenseful and compelling storylines, as well as some of the best production values seen in such a series. And all without losing focus on the reviews themselves. Though there is a growing number of people who wish that Linkara would dial down the number of {{Myth Arc}}s he's been putting in his reviews. His review of SupermanAtEarthsEnd can be considered a Beard moment as well, ditching the early "Now we've got it" intro and having memorable skits that would become recurring gags, such as "I AM A MAN", "Because Poor Literacy Is Kewl" and "Of course! Don't you know anything about science?". To say nothing of the ending, which would give the show its tagline of "Where bad comics burn".
