Recap: Doesn't start in the Senior Hallway, to say the least. We see Danica sleeping outside in some nice "PJs", she rushes inside, presumably to her bedroom, she washes her face (is clearly a bit disturbed), contemplates taking two pills, but doesn't, then sees that she is being filmed by camera. The camera has a Union Jack sticker on it. Danica's myspace leaves the impression that she is from Britian, actually, so maybe it is her own camera. Sort of a mysterious beginning for the series.
Meta-Comments: - Starts with about a 3-second advertisement for upcoming moving "Hairspray." - Opening credits are very fast, just a few seconds (maybe 1/2 of how eps began for SamHas7Friends - ends with 15-second ad for Hairspray

I watched the episode thinking "this is ridiculous and weird." Then I realized I hadn't turned the music off of the game I was playing. It was very silent movie-esque. I expected a villian to come in and twirl his moustache at her. Much better with it's own music. not ready to stamp an opinion on it yet, though.

First impressions: cool camera-work and editing. I am so tired of shaky-cam to achieve tension. So far, the cheese factor is very low. Not enough there yet to say anything, but started nicer than I thought it would.
Starting ad was fine. I wonder how effective the post-roll will be though, I was already reading comments below when it started.
Clouds of insects danced and buzzed in the golden autumn light, and the air was full of the piping of the song-birds. Long, glinting dragonflies shot across the path, or hung tremulous with gauzy wings and gleaming bodies.
