Hiatus Episode Club, Fun For Ages 8 To 80!

Recommended Posts

The first thing we need to figure out is when we can have it so that the most people can participate or if we need two different chat times to cover the international side of chat.

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 ?

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.

Sounds like an awesome idea, guys. I'm looking foreward to it :)

Hmm, do we have many southern african fans on the board?

It is starting to look like we should just schedule it because we are not getting much input here.

Ah, right. Input. Perhaps you could suggest a day/time and we can all vote on it.

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?
