Added DiffLines:

** Episode 15, "Lizzie Bennet is In Denial," is the show's first step into a larger world. It's not only the first episode ''without'' the main character on camera (and one of only three that does this overall), it also gives Jane and Charlotte a chance to draw real attention to the fact that she's an UnreliableNarrator. Plus, "It's super-important."


* SugarWiki/SheReallyCanAct:
** Lizzie (Ashley Clements) and Charlotte (Julia Cho) were never considered bad actors but they both really shone in Episode 41.
** Creator/MaryKateWiles was always considered an awesome actress, but the [[spoiler: abuse storyline]] and the way she and [[spoiler: Wes Anderhold]] handled it gave them a new kind of credibility as actors and characters for the fandom and was praised countless times.

Added DiffLines:

* HilariousInHindsight: Lizzie cooing over her new phone became this after Ashley Clements showed up in ads for Gazelle, a company dealing in used phones and electronics.


* HateSink: George Wickham is meant to be as detestable and slimy as ever here, and is designed to make the viewer hate him as much as possible. If YouTube comments are anything to go off of, this was a resounding success.

** Lizzie: [[ManipulativeBastard a manipulative vlogger]] who retorts to SlutShaming against her little sister, publishes [[FalseFriend everyone's private life]] on the internet and [[AggressiveCategorism judges everyone]] harshly or a StepfordSnarker who needs to snark on the internet to bear the fact that her mother is a misogynist, that most of her neighbors are snobs or materialists and that her financial situation and future are uncertain, and who [[AngerBornOfWorry snaps out of anger]] that her sisters's lives are going completely out of control, because they are preparing themselves to live as someone's trophy wife instead of trying to be individuals like she is?
*** Lizzie herself thinks sexism has nothing to do with her mother's behavior and that if she had a brother her mother would be just as keen to set him up.
*** Lizzie's mother is still outrageously inappropriate and sabotages her daughters' relationships with her zeal. Even if that isn't born of sexism, it's still a hell of a thing to have to deal with.

** Caroline Lee: A [[AristocratsAreEvil mean and haughty girl]] who Charlotte and Lizzie criticized realistically for joining William Darcy in his crusade against the world... or a naive and brutally honest spoiled girl who at least is not a {{Hypocrite}} about how she likes money, becomes the pawn of two manipulative vloggers and has a crush on a childhood friend which people find annoying because she sees right through his behavior?
*** This got less popular after her appearances on ''Emma Approved'', where she's needlessly cruel to Harriet at every turn.

* {{Narm}}: Mary Kate Wiles is arguably [[SheReallyCanAct one of the best actresses in this show]], but her reaction to the revelation that [[spoiler:Wickham's going to publish their sex tape]] in Episode 85 is so overtly dramatic, that may come out as just plain funny to some.

** Lydia, of all characters. As far as the original novel go, she has no fans whatsoever. In the webseries, she was adored. She's such a fanbase darling, then after she becomes TheWoobie in the later episodes, the rewatching fans will point out and criticize every instance od Lizzie verbally sniping at Lydia (Lydia's sniping at Lizzie gets nowhere near of that attention).


Added DiffLines:

* EvenTheGirlsWantHer: Under every video Caroline appears in, there will be voices of straight females wondering if they're really straight, as well as many comments boiling down to: "Ah, I know she's evil, but I cannot get over how pretty she is!".


Added DiffLines:

* EvilIsSexy: Caroline and Wickham are the characters the most frequently seen as sexy in the comments, even in rewatch when people are aware of their true nature. Although Wickham proves to be so evil that it's a turn off to many people, and the genuine NiceGuy Bing rivals him in attracting interest. Then again, Bing [[FemaleGaze doesn't]] [[ShirtlessScene strip on-screen]]...


* {{Fanon}}: Many commenters [[WildMassGuessing speculate that]] Lydia slept with Hank to get to Vid Con. (Specifically, she [[LeaningOnTheFourthWall winked at the camera]] after saying she "had friends in high places.") Later she got her own video blog, which makes you wonder...

** It's also commonly speculated that Darcy [[spoiler:killed Wickham after buying out the company that owned the sex tape with him and Lydia]]. Of course, this is mostly just joking, mixed with a bit of wishful thinking. (Especially given what an infuriating KarmaHoudini [[spoiler:Wickham]] is.)

Added DiffLines:

** There are some who say you could make a case for Ricky being gay and closeted. Whether they think his GirlfriendInCanada is just a cover or if she's real but just, you know, not a she, depends on the viewer.


** In a lot of the later Lydia Bennet videos and during the [[spoiler: sex tape]] arc a lot of the commenters said that they ship George Wickham/a pool of hungry sharks or George Wickham's face/William Darcy's fist
* DoubleStandard: Releasing [[spoiler:the sex tape]] is gonna ruin Lydia's reputation and even eventual career, not Wickham's. Probably TruthInTelevision. The website doesn't even have George's name on it.

* ActorShipping: The imagination of avid fans ran wild in pairing Ashley Clements (Lizzie) and Daniel Vincent Gordh (William Darcy), even though the two told them mildly that they didn't wish it. As if that ever stopped crazed fangirls and fanboys.


* FridgeLogic: Isn't there any legal way for Lydia and her family to prevent Wickham from [[spoiler:publishing the sex tape]]? It's not like she's given him a written permission to distribute it, or something. Of course, money is probably an issue (so they can't take it to the court) and that's what [[spoiler:Darcy]] might be for. But the thing is, in the book they were really at Wickham's mercy and had to bribe him into marrying Lydia, and here the law is on their side. Why didn't they just involve police? They could find Wickham just fine.
