First Blog / Dorkiness Prevails [episode 1]

Wow. Major nostalgia here.

This episode was never uploaded to due to copyrighted content, but fortunately remains available on YouTube.

"First Blog / Dorkiness Prevails" was the first proper episode of lonelygirl15, not counting the promotional videos "Paytotheorderofofof vs. Dinosaur" and "YouTubers Secret Language". In this video, we see Bree, eyebrows and all, resting her head on her knee, vlogging, making jokes and pulling silly faces for the camera.

And that's it. One and a half minutes of Bree, video blogging in her bedroom. The content is hardly groundbreaking. She acts like a normal, slightly dorky teenager. She makes references to the YouTube celebrities of the time, back when the website was young and populated mainly by vloggers, rather than AMVs and stolen clips from TV shows. Even the title is a reference to thewinekone's "Hotness Prevails / Worst Video Ever".

And all this is exactly as it should be. It's a believable video, which introduces a believable character. The series could have gone anywhere at this point, which is what makes it so exciting.

So all things considered, it's not the most original or surprising video ever made, but it's not supposed to be. It's not really worth watching for its own sake, but it's the perfect start to a Vlog Series.
