  1. Hmmm. If it means bringing Taylor back I want this show to win, even if I have to put up with Spencer. But I also like Skylar. This is hard. Why does their only have to be one winner? Why can't they all combine to make one story?

  2. I'd be down for that Joe. Don't see why it's not an option.

  3. How can the order have a hit out on this guy for years but a couple of kids can find him in the span of a five minute video?

    ReplyDelete
  4. WOW! Taylor, Spencer and Linc! This is made of win!!

    ReplyDelete
  5. If the ceremony baby had shown up this would have been the bestest video ever!

  6. Made of pure win!!! on man, I am so excited! This is awesome.

  8. Jenni,
    Cool, I like Skylar's videos. If either of you win hopefully you can combine.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Holy Shit, It's like LG15, but with a budget...

    and, no, that's NOT a typo.

  10. The epicness is engulfing the youtubes

    ReplyDelete
  11. Second Anonymous,
    Have you ever seen the movie "The Rescue"? Came out in the late 80s and had Kevin Dillon in it. Four kids use their mom's car to save their Navy Seal dads who have been captured inside North Korea.

    After watching that movie. Anything that happens in Breeniverse is believable.

    Sparklebunny has spoken.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Sparklebunny knows all!

    So impressed. I'm so happy to see Linc incorporated into the story. This feels like it has been a long time coming.

    It also answers the epic: What about Taylor question!

    ReplyDelete
  13. When it comes to the computer, Taylor is genius. Of course she can outsmrt the Order. :)

    ReplyDelete
  14. anon 8:07 PM
    yeah..uhm LG15 obviously DOES have a budget you dolt.

    ReplyDelete
  15. michiev -

    I think that anon meant that this pilot actually looks like it has a budget, whereas even with a budget, LG15 appears a little more low-rent.

    I'm not sure I agree, but this pilot is every bit as good as anything LG15's put out. Taylor FTW!

    ReplyDelete
  16. OMG! I really hope this wins!!! Please!!!!! How i've been missing the older characters!!!
    THanks Jenni and Logan for making this all happen!!!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Thank GOD they are using HD...and have returned to WIDESCREEN!!!! The full-screen low-rez canon vids always look so horrible...

    ReplyDelete
  18. Ho-lee crap. *throws away script for his series* This is awesome! Every one who worked on this? I love you!!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Oh man. That is so unfair. How does anyone else have a chance now?
    Friggin epic.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I don't see how this is fair.

    ReplyDelete
  21. lol! i'd deffinatly be willing to combine. i'm glad i have high-res vids. [gets scared]

    as far as budgets.. that's what sponsers are for ^_^

    ReplyDelete
  22. Has anyone clicked through and watched the HD version of the vids? Extremely good quality

  25. I agree

    I agree

    ReplyDelete
  26. Yeah, I don't see how this is fair at all.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Excellent!

    LG15 are clearly the winners if they select this TSIY entry.

    ReplyDelete
  28. i didn't have any hope for the show is yours

    i thought there would be no way anyone can match the regular videos

    i have high hopes now

    thank you

    ReplyDelete
  29. "I don't see how this is fair."

    yeah, its not fair because the other entries i have seen sucked.

    i just want a show that doesn't suck.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Well.... I don't see how this isn't fair. The C's said that anyone could use already established characters... And if you had access to any, wouldn't you use them? I really think this is an awesome pilot. Great acting, of course, and awesome quality. Great job!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I wanna say, I was on the joking side of saying it was unfair... I think it totally is fair... I'm just jealous.
    ;) :P

    ReplyDelete
  32. This is totally within rules and thus fair.

    The makers of this just happen to be friends with the actors....

    And come on, we've wanted Taylor and Spencer back for FOREVER, plus Linc got added.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Yeah I'd watch this. Definitely look forward to seeing the development of these characters.

    I have to say I was planning on skipping out on the entire TSIY chapter but if this was going to be run, I'm in.

    ReplyDelete
  34. This was just amazing! How great is it to see Taylor, Spencer and Linc in one series. I'm so excited about this, this one must win! With this series, the whole TSIY concept has finally some potentional. Thank you Jenni, Adam, Will, Logan, Becki and Max!

    ReplyDelete
  35. This is very fair.

    They worked really hard to do this and do it right.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Well...this is fair only because I guess it's life that isn't fair. I wasn't born with the budget to buy nice cameras or hire anybody to help me. I don't live in a place anybody is willing to do that for free. I don't know anyone of importance to the Creators.

    My only problem is...if this is the only one they put in, it'll feel a little to me like "Yeah, you can get in on the action, but ONLY if you know the actors, and if you can get access to them, and if we agree..." It will honestly feel to me more like "The Show is OURS" than "The Show is YOURS." Just my opinion.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Isn't Jenni Powell one who's already in bed with the Creators? Not saying that in a bad way, but I could have sworn I saw Amanda on one of her things...

    ReplyDelete
  38. Jenni was a part of our community before she ever worked for the Creators. Yes Amanda appeared in Lonelyjew I do believe, but why does that matter?

    What matters is who does the best job on the pilot and the treatment, whether they are someone in LA, England, Tennessee, etc. If you think there is a better pilot then fine. But it would be JUST as not fair to not pick them because previous connections with the Creators. They obviously worked hard and put a lot of effort into this.

    I like this pilot a lot. Linc has long been a part of fandom and I'm so glad to see him included. Who knows who/what else they might include?

    Life isn't ever going to be fair. There are tons of examples of that I can think of in my own life. But we have to take the opportunities we receive rather than complain about the opportunities we don't have.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I hate to say it. This is a great pilot, but really shouldn't be entered in this competition. It would be great if this show was going on, but another show as well.

    Like someone else said, this makes it feel a lot less like "The Show is Yours" and a lot more like "The Show is whoever has the biggest budget and the best actors" or "The Show is Whatever is like Our Show."

    I'm throwing my show out.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Wow - great job, Jenni and Logan! This is phenomenal. You guys continue to raise the bar for LG15 fan creations. =)

    I totally hope this wins.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I definitely think this should win, the only obstacle that comes to mind is lack of plot, as I assume the actual rescue of Jonas and Maggie will be left for Season 2 of the Resistance, and because the actors are busy. However, this could be remedied quickly with a collaboration with another entry (i.e. collab with Skylar would be so full of win it boggles the mind) and focusing on the character's personal struggles (i.e. Linc's low self-esteem, Taylor's family issues, Spencer's job and girlfriend, etc.) I agree it may be seen as a tad unfair, but a collaboration with a few other entries/ideas, as stated above, would make it feel more legit, at least to me.

    Plus, in my mind, this happened in the LG15 universe already, and if we don't get to see what happens next I will cry.

    ReplyDelete
  42. "Working so hard on what you think really matters, and then... reality happens." - Taylor

    Sums up this entry. Crushing the competition. Great work.

    ReplyDelete
  43. it seems to me that jenni and logan are the only semi-pros that have submitted a proposal so far. i'm sure the creators hope for more.

    while i have enjoyed watching other pilots, i really see NO WAY that they would be viable beyond a very small audience. doing a show like lg15 is no small deal. hell, the miles, mesh and greg of june 2006 probably couldn't even win this contest.

    i understand the comments of Anonymous such as "this makes it feel a lot less like "The Show is Yours" and a lot more like "The Show is whoever has the biggest budget and the best actors" or "The Show is Whatever is like Our Show," but really....

    - I want a show with some budget, though its a crime that the C's get it for free.

    - I want a show with the best actors.

    - I want a show that is at least somewhat similar to (though hopefully better than) the official show.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Just saying, if this is the ONLY one chosen it's still going to feel a lot to me like "Whoever is already with us gets it." Incorporating Skylar would make me feel a lot better, because it wouldn't feel like as much of a setup. It feels like another popularity contest..."Who do the Cs like best? Who's 'in' with them?" More of the same old "who you know" rather than "what you know."

    I'm not saying people haven't worked hard. I AM saying that OTHER people have worked hard and done their best too, and have had their product labeled junk. Let's face it, there's a massive wall of flame put up by many of the diehards, and unless you're in you don't get much. I guess that's the way life works. You sleep with the boss, you get promoted. It's not fair, but it's not against the rules, either (unless you're not both consenting adults).

    And before you go into the "the Cs are people, too..." I USED to believe that. But people can be cold as well.

    I dunno...to say "The Show is Yours" and then pick someone who's already in...feel like a betrayal of the spirit of the thing. Bravo for incorporating one new person in there, but it could be so much more.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I know I sound bitter to some of you...but there's a lot of backstory going on.

    I've had my say, just one last thing:

    "Life isn't ever going to be fair."

    The world probably isn't ever going to be completely at peace. There probably will never be a time when no one goes hungry. Does this mean we shouldn't try to make life a little fairer, war a little less, the hungry less so, in every instance we can? Or are we just going to give up and sit back with the excuse "Life is never going to be fair?"

    ReplyDelete
  46. I agree with FH14. I think an obstacle to this would be if the C's have plans for a new season of LG15:TR that this would interfere with. For example, if they had Spencer and Taylor in future plot outlines, or if The Misfits' story planned to rescue Maggie but that was the plot for Season 2 of LG15:TR. I assume Jenni would think of this and plan for the story not to intersect, but I can see that being a stumbling point. Otherwise, this is really well done, and I'd be excited to watch it! :)

    ReplyDelete
  47. oh good Lord, you folks were whining about this when Masonishappy put up a video...about how 'unfair' it was.

    Just because they worked a lot on their pilot, and it looks extremely nice, doesn't mean it isnt *fair*

    I thought Jenni did an AWESOME job.

    ReplyDelete
  48. well, if the comments are any indication, having 50+ on LG15TODAY might be a good sign.

    ReplyDelete
  49. All I can say is...WOW! Everyone who worked on this is awesome, and I think this show deserves to win!

    ReplyDelete
  50. LOL I'm just gunna leave my 2 cents out of this:P ................................Nah I can't! This is for everyone complaining. As I see it, this is completly fair, jenni is a fan and she has access to a few actors, and she put out an awesome pilot. I see nuthing wrong with it. Only thing is that the story will turn into cannon and can't be un done. With that said, It would be better if the C's let this just be the season 2, because as I see it, jenni's plot and the plot of seaso 2 won't mix. Im sure season 2 consists of reed and daniel saving maggie, but since Taylor is trying to save Jonas, and if she successful in it, there will be no plot for season 2. But on he plus side if Jenni wins Im sure she will do what ever she can too include the community into her plot. Anyways to wrap this rant up, Jenni and Logan you did a fantastic job, it's completely fair, I wish you the best of luck in the contest!

  51. "It isn't fair?" Really?

    So, what, they have access to friends who happen to be great actors and they're not supposed to use them?

    Give me a break.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Sigh. I mean, all things aside, I don't think this pilot was very good. But it's going to win simply because of Taylor and Spencer. A shame...

    ReplyDelete
  53. yes, you're absolutely right. Taylor and Spence are the only reasons it'll win...

    ...That, and awesome writing...
    ...and amazing production value...
    ...and HD picture quality...
    ...and REALLY good sound...

    ReplyDelete
  54. Please stop whining! This is the best pilot so far. We all want a good quality show and this is one.

    ReplyDelete
  55. This DOES bring up an interesting point, however...

    What if they DON'T get picked?

    This would be the first time in LG15 history that OFFICIAL characters appear in a non-canon video/storyline :P

    Just a cool little thought...

    ReplyDelete
  56. Make sure you check out the high-depth version. Great quality and great sound.

    Even 24 hours later, this is still epic. This is awesome, lg15:tm crew.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Man... I definetly don't have a chance now...

    ReplyDelete
  58. The high-def stuff is amazing, but that's really only half of it. Even if this were shot in 4:3 regular definition, it'd be great - because the writing and acting are SO strong.

    ReplyDelete
  59. 85 comments on youtube, 62 comments on lg15today, 35 comments on insidelg15.

    Speaks volumes. Way to go.

    ReplyDelete
  60. As much as I adore Taylor and Becki, THE EXISTENCE OF LINC IN THIS VIDEO TOTALLY TRUMPS EVERYTHING ELSE IN THE WORLD. I NEEDDDD THIS. Even if they don't win, they just need to keep going. They just need to.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Kismet I feel the same way. Taylor/Max are amazing, but adding Linc is just so incredible. It's hard to explain how great it is.

    ReplyDelete
  62. TBH its fair game they applied
    it may put down other willing writters feeling they cant match this pitch though.
    People have already highlighted the perks this pitch has over the rest.
    Im also confident jenni and logan designed the plot to evade saving TAAG.

    The whole get linc to help save jonas thing is more a plot device to motivate and provide reason to find linc. Its the rusult of their actions uppon making contact linc that triggor the plot. As seen someones on their tails meaning survival and evade is the primairy objective over save the phail squad.
    as a small addition to that question
    "What if they dont get picked?"
    Im pretty sure they can still proceed with this plot. As i said logan helped glenn re write opaphid into RE88 avoiding lg15 im sure they wrote this with the same idea in mind.
    Its also shows theres still the chance of anyone elses pitch still making it so dont think because this has been pitched theres no longer point trying.

  63. If the winner is someone who's practically on EQAL's payroll anyway...

    I love how anyone on this site who expresses an opinion against EQAL is automatically labeled a whiner. I think they have a point. It's looking just a little like a setup.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Jenni doesn't work for LG15/Eqal anymore.

    She has worked for With the Angels and the Guild most recently I do believe.

    So it's not just someone with Eqal connections, but someone who is a professional within the web field. Don't we want a professional looking show?

    ReplyDelete
  65. "I think they have a point. It's looking just a little like a setup."

    i can understand some skepticism, and i'm all for criticism of EQAL where warranted, but it makes no sense for this to be a set-up.

    i mean, the winner doesn't even get paid. was this some elaborate plot to get taylor and spencer back on more favorable terms? i doubt it!

    ReplyDelete
  66. I'm proud of you, Jenni! Kick ass!

    ReplyDelete
  67. Am I missing something? This show has nothing going for it but Becky and Max. No plot, no innovation. No new take on the whole Order thing. Just the same "we're following somebody who turns the tables on us" thing. I'm expecting a kidnapping in the next episode.

    Which means the C's will probably pick it.

    ReplyDelete
  68. Anon Linc brings an entirely different dynamic to the team as an ex-Order employee. There is a huge opportunity to explore his knowledge of the Order operations. We've seen one episode which just introduces the main characters and sets up their role as misfits. We don't know where the 8 week treatment will go.

    What this brings is good writing, good acting, high quality video and sound and many of the things we've come to expect from this show.

    ReplyDelete
  69. Hmm, not sure I agree with all that. But I'm willing to see where it goes.

    ReplyDelete
  70. A production assistant is not "practically on the payroll."

    That is what Jenni was with EQAL. A PA is just a runner. Not a writer, not a director or high level employee - just an errand girl.

    If people think being a PA DQs you from being allowed onto a contest, then get ready to DQ just about everyone in Los Angeles.

    Anyone and everyone who wants to et into the entertainment industry has been a PA for multiple productions at some point in their lives. That is not "on the payroll." That is getting paid doing what amounts to bitch work.

    ReplyDelete
  71. lol anon above. funny but true about a Hollywood PA (and interns too) in fact, most people working in Hwood are probably living below the poverty line. but that's another topic altogether.
