* LetsPlay/{{Chuggaaconroy}} is a good example of how very surprising is to visit the early instalments of popular [[LetsPlay Lets Plays]] and see how different the overall quality of them compared to their later ones.

* While opinions differ on where exactly WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick got consistently good (whether it was Nella coming in more often or it was where she started looking at tropes as well as doing reviews), but the first step was probably the BlackComedy-filled "Top 10 Disturbing Songs" list where she proved dark humour is what she's incredibly good at.

* 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]].
