Description: Danica videoblogs about her insomnia.
- - - - - - - -
Yes, it's only episode 7 but I'm indecisive as to whether or not I like Danica. IMO, she isn't very appealing as a background fixture in previous videos, throwing daggers at Chad with her eyes and spouting off stereotypical UK jargon ("wanker"). The vlog setting works very well for her character.
Recap:The Danica Plot Hole (or why she sleeps outside in sexy lingerie from time to time) is sort of plugged by her explanation that she has insomnia, and sometimes doesn't take her meds. We also learn that Danica's host family is Lauren (the class flirt) and her mom, Jill (we see Jill for the 1st time here, but she has her own myspace for th show, so she must be more than a minor character). No mention of Lauren's dad. Danica says their relationship is weird? Hmmm, do they go to clubs and pick up guys together?
milo adds: danica is the main character of the series so far, i guess she is sort of the narrator we are to identify with? she is british, but we perhaps are supposed to think she is like us, i.e., not obssessed with proms and shopping and the like.
ETA: I also noticed that at the official site, when you mouseover the characters, it gives you a short blurb on each. For Jill it says: "Assistant to the Principal, EAHS Prom Queen 1988". Note, if she was the prom queen in 1988, she had Lauren not very long after getting out of high school.
ETA 2: jill's myspace says she is only 28 years old. but everyone lies on myspace. if she was prom queen in 1988, she was likely born in 1970 and should be 36/37.
Here's Jill's most recent myspace blog: entry:
Friday, April 06, 2007 Prom Committee
I am excited about Prom Committee. This is the year, I just know it. My Lauren is such an apple in my eye…is that the saying. I guess what I mean is that she is like a mini-me…not like a midget, but you know. I hope she has my strength, but I hope she makes better decisions than I did. I might be a MILF as the boys say, but I certainly do not want to be a GILF. Anyway, if any of you Edward Adams students want in on the committee come see me Monday. Kisses!!

Well now everyone's a suspect in this high school who dunnit, except we don't know what they're going to do yet! lol I think Jill is going to be extra, extra pushy and try to get Lauren to win Prom Queen at whatever cost. If this is like most teenage movies, then Danica will gain popularity and pose competition to Lauren, causing the "MILF" to step in and take action. Then for a twist, she probably has some of the boys - or the girls - but probably the boys - doing her dirty work. Hmmm... maybe she was the one with the emerald ring.... Okay, just speculating! I liked the vlog format of this episode, it was good to see that they did somewhat resolve the first episode for us. I am really starting to enjoy this series now.
