I recommended the show to one of my teachers. He marathoned all two seasons and now he won't take anymore video recommendations from me.

I watched the DVD with my friends thinking "oh, everyone's gonna get bored, nothing really scary happened this season..."

Nope.

Season 2 was WAY more intense than season 1. It was actually pretty freaky, even for those of us that had already seen them on youtube. Something about seeing all the entries back-to-back in a dark room really ramps up the tension.

Yeah, I noticed that too. When I watched the series initially, I thought it was boring because we'd have a few weeks between entries and then get treated to a 15-minute episode where Jay walks around in the woods. But it for sure works a lot better watching it all at once.

Season 2 was weird. Nothing happened in real time as it did in S1. Literally the entire thing except about the last minute was Jay watching stuff that already happened.

Mosr of it was watching old tapes, but there was also quite a lot happening in real time, with all the events going on at the hotel

Oh right, I'm not sure what I was thinking. The first section that ends with him getting chased out by Masky is all real time.

Before we all start getting into Season 3, I have a question about the last entry in Season 2.

So, we know that all of the tapes Jay had were found in the safe in the hotel. The last tape, uploaded as Entry 52, show Jay and Jessica's encounter with Alex and Tim in Rosswood and Jay being attacked by the Operator in the hotel room. After Jay passes out, he apparently puts his camera back on the tripod and goes to bed, not remembering any of it. But what about the tapes that were already in the chestcam and his normal camera? The ones that recorded all the events from that day? Did Jay put fresh tapes in his camera during his memory blackout?

In Entry 27, he could have looked over the tapes already in his camera and seen the events from Entry 52. Apologies if this has already been explained.

I would guess we might probably have to assume so... for continuity's sake.

If Jay could be filmed in full face makeup slumped in a hallway with the operator shuffling by and not remember, it's not too big of a stretch.

e: Hell, he lost what... 7 months of memories there? So he must've locked it all up while he was "under".

Following tradition, the update will be uploaded at 11:49pm tonight, followed by a twitter message saying the update failed, followed by several attempts to retry the upload until it finally goes up at 5:00am tomorrow.

Jay, when did you get so smooth?! Oh man this has got me so stoked for this series, can't wait to see the footage from the original film, assuming Tim finds it. And why does Tim not remember Jay at all? And only vaguely remembers the film itself? How much of the last few years is Tim aware of?

I know he hasn't been to Georgia, but apparently many hotels are the same because he was giving me a rundown on the whole floor plan. He even figured out the woman next door. Maybe he's a fat hairy Operator.

We've got some options to consider here:

A.) Tim knows more than he's letting on, and the tapes are a lie to get Jay in closer.

B.) Tim's got worse memory degradation than everyone else, and somehow the mask can repair that for him.

I'm kinda thinking it's option A, but I'm not quite sure still. It'll be interesting to see what comes out of their next meeting.

I'd like to think A, and that Tim has motive and was just acting coy to give him time to come up with a plan.

He should really consider cutting down on the smoking.

Tim seems like a pretty nice guy though. If some guy I barely knew years ago started pestering me about an old student project, I'd probably try to brush him off. Maybe even give him the wrong phone number, or take his number and never call. Not Tim though. He calls back right away with an offer of some low-effort help. What a swell guy.

Subtle but delightful.

Anyone else notice this?

When Jay gives Tim his number, Tim sends Jay a text back to confirm and asks, "Got it?"
Right before that moment, as Jay receives it, there's a flicker of distortion on the video. It happens again when Jay gets the call from Tim. Am I seeing things? If I'm not, what does this tell us about Tim?

I don't think Tim has any new tapes. I think he's leading Jay into some kind of trap.

OPERATOR SIGHTED AT 6:26

Just kidding, that's probably not him. I gotta say though that this entry did a lot better job of setting up possible events than Entry #27 did for Season 2, because stuff actually happened this time. I'm totally psyched to see what happens next and I'm happy to see that Tim is back!

e: Actually when Jay turns back to the same shot later the dark figure is gone! Translation: the shadowy tree is now behind the bridge. Looks like the Operator has a pact with the fauna now!

e2: They also totally missed out on an opportunity by not giving Jay 'Gimme 20 Dollaz' as his ringtone!

Nice catch on the first one, but I didn't notice it on the second one. Got a timestamp for the one on the phone call?

I don't think Tim is conscious of his Masky alter-ego. He'd have to be the smoothest loving operator (heh) of all time to get ambushed by Jay like that and not miss a beat. He's regularly hitting up a mental hospital, my gut says Tim's going in to talk about blacking out for days and waking up with broken bones or something and he honestly just has no idea about the other poo poo going on between "him", Jay and Alex.

Whatever the case may be, I have a big rear end grin on my face cause Marble Hornets is back.

I was just kidding

Also, the second set of video flickering occurs between 6:40 and 6:48. The dried-up grass Jay is pointing the camera at makes it kind of hard to see, though.

Hopefully there aren't too many entries of 'going through the old tapes,' or at least if there are I hope they reveal some pretty major stuff. I like the live(ish) updates better.

As was I. I'm not hard on folks in here. Don't take something like that from me as anything other than in a joking fashion unless someone's being an rear end in a top hat. That's when I tend to mean those.

Thanks for the time code. I'm having a hard time seeing it, but I'll take your word that it's there.

So, how long will Jay be able to stick to his cover story this time?

I'm so excited about this show coming back that I'm having a hard time getting to sleep. I wasn't expecting that much plot in the very first episode. But drat was it a good surprise. Wonder what dark and horrible secrets are going to be on this round of student film footage?

Maybe Tim really doesn't have any idea who Jay is/what he does when he's blacked out, but who says that Masky blacks out when Tim's awake?

Jay's gonna turn around and Masky's gonna be all HE LL OW HY DI DY OU FO LL OW ME and then he's going to wake up in a hotel in Tennessee.

And then all of Season 4 consists of Jay looking through tapes to find out that he spent the last three months literally jumping sharks at Sea World.
