While Kevin was having struggles with getting his movie made, Patricia signed on the TGWTG forums in late January to bring out her work for more people. While the members enjoyed their First Impressions and Kevin’s Top 100 Animated Shows of All Time, it was a book review of Inside Pee-wee’s Playhouse: The Untold, Unauthorized, and Unpredictable Story of a Pop Phenomenon that had gotten some recognition. One person in particular changed her life forever: Positive Troll. One month later, he invited her to this unknown website called Manic Expression and became the 50th member of the site. At that point, Positive Troll became simply known as Les. In this new site, Patricia and Kevin met wonderful people at the site such as James Walsh, Moviefan12, SOJA*88, BigBlackHatMan, Jason on the House, Timdiana, Decker Shado, the guys at Comic Book Cast, The Fanfic Critic, jashykins, James Bevan, Whyboy, Brekclub85, and so much more. While posting on Manic Expression, they came up with an idea to make summer a very special time: dedicate a few months to Nickelodeon. Six months later, the Nickelodeon tribute started and it was bigger than they ever anticipated. Not only did they review the shows and movies, but they had gotten interviews from their childhood icons such as Marc Summers, Moira Quirk, Marc Weiner, Fred Seibert, Cheryl Blaylock, Noel MacNeal, D.J. McHale, and more. It brought in a sense of nostalgia and closure to the people who read it and it gave Patricia and Kevin a warmth that make them feel satisfied.
