LG15: The Resistance, the long-awaited follow-up to LonelyGirl15, premiered Saturday to positive reviews. In the new web series from EQAL, LonelyGirl15 characters Jonas and Sarah return to battle evil secret society The Order–and perhaps an even higher threat.

I reposted my interview with EQAL CEO Miles Beckett about the series last month; click here to read my original post.

The Los Angeles Times blog Web Scout reports that the show maintains "an arty, independent feel," and Todd Krieger at ClickZ says it’s "quite harrowing." I’ve posted the episode below for viewers who want to see for themselves.

The 8-12 minute episodes will air on Saturdays at 7 p.m. and run for 12 weeks, with daily videos and text posted by characters throughout the week.
