On November 24, 2006 LG15 released "Thanksgiving". As we look back, this year take a moment to watch the video again and then read through the comments made by Glenn Rubenstein on his radio show last night on BreeFM. We want to know what you think about this intriguing concept, so make sure you leave us a comment below.
Thanksgiving - Lonelygirl15
Daniel and I were fighting and didn't do anything for Thanksgiving. So, I decided to take Jonas's advice and work things out with Daniel.
From Glenn's radio show on BreeFM last night:
"Glenn brainstormed on the air how this idea would allow LG15 to capitalize on the existing footage. In over 200 video blogs, there must be enough stuff that is relevant to the plot that could work in a story arc that would allow Bree to be "present" in the show through Daniel looking through old out takes or cut lines for clues (he could have left it out for a reason). Daniel could go back through some old footage to try and figure things out. Glenn thinks he could do something really well with this idea, but only if it resulted in moving the plot forward in a new and relevant direction to what Daniel found.
He thinks it would give LG15 that old familiar feel for fans who stopped watching once Bree went "On The Run." And if the resulting storyline was good and hooked people, it would be very effective for both new and old fans.
Perhaps an even bigger "ratings stunt?" What if OpAphid or someone did have surveillance footage taken via Bree's webcam? That would mean they could shoot new scenes with Bree if Jessica wanted to come back and do a cameo, and it would take place in Summer 2006. But again, it would have to tie into an awesome plot.
Glenn almost wishes he could do a guest arc for a story/plotline like either of these on Lonelygirl15 because he thinks its a great premise. He would dig working on it, and thinks it would be a solid way to do one to two weeks of work and get a month's worth of videos. It's like a clip show, but better because it's all new to the audience and it could be used to reboot into a brand new storyline.

Food for thought!!!!!!!!! Well have a HAPPY THANKSGIVING everyone (even if it is not your official day to celebrate). And once again it would be realy great to hear what the community has to say about Glenn's idea to "recapture the Bree in the bedroom feel" so make sure your voice is heard by leaving a message below. We, as a community, may not be able to bring Bree back, but we sure could try:) ~mm
EDIT by QtheC: If anyone caught the Survivor China recap / clip episode they showed Thursday, it was very similar in kind to what Glenn was suggesting for Lonelygirl15. It was compiled mainly of clips not previously aired of the Survivor season so far. I'm not sure if this was somehow related to the industry guild strikes, or just a way to try to boost the show's ratings for the rest of the season - but it definitely was a format that could appeal to current fans of the show while being accessible to new viewers.
