Merlin Series 3

So, after discussing this with Jessie and Patricia, I think we're of one mind on this. As you may or may not be aware, S3 is fast approaching - Saturday September 11th in the UK. Which means the episodes will likely be available at the usual sources by Sunday in Australia. We won't be providing them here, but if you have any questions about that, feel free to PM me with them.

What we propose is to change format from S2 and not have "flailposts" where we all watch the episodes along together by synchronisation. We tried this last year and all it really seemed to do is divide the viewership - by the time it was on TV a lot of you had already flailed with us and there weren't as many participants in either set of watchalong posts.

Instead, we would have a general discussion post each week after the new episodes have aired in the UK. This would not be a watchalong post, but an ongoing discussion post that anyone could drop into at any time and talk with other people who had seen the episode. This way you wouldn't have to worry about missing it or getting the episode really quickly or anything like that, and people wouldn't out-flail themselves before the episode aired on TV here. Please note I am just hopefully assuming they will be aired here - I don't THINK we've had any confirmation.

So what we really need to know is how quickly after the episodes you'd like the discussion posts to go up, and whether you have any comments or suggestions on what we're planning. :)

MOAR POLLS

OKAY. So I was thinking that to maximise the number of people who will watch the show, we'd have TWO episodes watching together each week, with perhaps a 20 minute gap between them? This way people can watch for the first time together, or if they will have to get from a friend, slow internet or uni, they would be able to have the episode for the watching, and people who want to appreciate it first, and THEN watch it, would be able to - the week after. ASK ME IF YOU'VE NO IDEA WHAT I'M ON ABOUT :D

edit: in the words on a wise person: 'So in week one, we would watch episode one; then week two, episode one then episode two; week three, episode two then episode three; etc.'
