Hiatus Episode Club, Fun For Ages 8 To 80!

Recommended Posts

Me and Ar Diem, have planned to do something during the hiatus called "Episode Club" (very creative). It has in it two episodes that we rewatch together each week and then we discuss them in the chat afterwards, we think it will make the hiatus seem shorter and it will be something fun to do anyway, we could even continue it after the hiatus if it gets popular.

 

The discussion of the Episode watched will be in the "Chat". For all of you who don't know what the chat is, or how to use it you click on the "Chat" button which is next to the "Calendar" button which is under the picture of the gang on the site. If it has a red bubble over it, that means there are people inside. 

 

We have a 20 week hiatus and we now have Six Seasons that we can watch together, this club is intended for all members of the board. So we are going to choose around 6 episodes per season. I am going to create polls so we can rank the episodes and we can watch the best ones together.

 

If any particular groups want a special episode club, we can also organize that, for example the Raj/Mrs. Wolowitz shippers may want a special club where they can watch all those episodes about that pairing or something, maybe people would like to watch episodes specifically about a certain topic, like video games or ones with guest stars. We can organize all kinds of different episode clubs to suit different tastes.

 

However, this is just the general episode club, where everybody's opinion is put into consideration and everybody has a say in what episodes are discussed and chosen. We want to get as many people involved, so even if you haven't been in the chat before you can still get involved and don't be afraid of the chat! 

 

Thank you!!  :fi_lone_ranger:  :fi_lone_ranger:  :fi_lone_ranger:

We could meet in the middle of our time zones, maybe. Or we could have a discussion time for Night time USA and Night time Europe. I don't know. Any suggestions ?

As always Latin America and Asia is forgotten/neglected  :icon_cry:

I was considering you from the start.  There are an increasing number of chatters from Asia lately and we have seen some new interest from Latin America.

I'm assuming this would be on a weekend night, like Friday night or something?

That way we could probably schedule it late Friday night in the US, which would mean early morning on a Saturday for most Euros.  And I know that if it's 9pm here (central time), then it would be 9am in some places in Asia, so I think that we'd have a broad window.

Some folks in the US would have to stay up a little later, maybe (though we wouldn't have to go too, too late in the US) and some Euro folks might have to get up early on a Saturday, but I think it would work that way.

 

How early are the folks in the UK willing to watch?  Would early Saturday (or very late Friday, like 2am or something) work?

 

Just my 2 cents.

 

As for the episode ranking, I'm going to have to do a quick re-watch or something before I can really decide on S1--it's been a while since I've really watched those eps and I just recently put one of my S1 discs in the DVD player.  Hmm...

I'm UK and can do early Saturday mornings (if I haven't been out Friday).

 

How will we chose the episodes?

I have made polls for each season, - season one poll is up for voting now. Will put Season 2 up soon. Link is in the OP and above.

Why not having a rotating schedule? Like, one week it'd be at 9 pm in the UK, and the next at 9 pm in the Philippines, and the next 9 pm in New York, etc. That way it's not always us the same people who have to be up early. Especially since some of us actually work on Saturday mornings. ;)

The only reason I worry about Friday nights (in the US) is because if we like doing this and continue doing it into the regular season it will interfere with international people who see the show on Friday and want to discuss it on Friday.

 

But we would have plenty of time to move it so I am good with whatever.

That is a possibility too.  It would be more fun if we could do one or no more than two but we are really only talking about an hour to 90 minutes per episode probably.

I guess when the hiatus hits we start the chat on Fridays and run them until whenever.  Make sure you take the survey, you don't want me picking all of the episodes.  :icon_twisted:

 

 

If it runs for 12 hours or so it should mean that people can either catch it before bed or the next morning.  If someone has a better and concrete suggestion we are still open.

I need to look at an episode guide before I vote, but I will vote. 

 

Lord knows someone has to offset Ar's bad taste. ;)

 

 

We are letting people pick that do not even recognize the episodes??  Are we even sure Cait has ever seen the show before?
