I'm surprised none of the party guests know the correct date.

EW has some stuff on the structure of the season. Not really spoilers but just in case.

Spoiler:
The season will separately follow each character after the previous season finale. The same events through different characters eyes. 6x2 episode arcs + a few others things. Very few scenes with multiple characters. This was partly based on scheduling difficulties. Only Michael appears in all stories.

Some more pics from EW. No story spoilers IMO, but one of the pics does show a supporting character who I had not heard was coming back yet. So, click at your own risk.

Can't decide what parts of the first 3 seasons to re-watch so I have references fresh in my mind. I'm not sure I will have time to watch all of it between now and when it starts.

Discuss.

I've watched the entire series 3 times. Last time was last year. I was thinking I'd rewatch it a 4th time before the new stuff shows up, but I don't think that will happen.

I just blue through it over a week or two. It's easy to watch while I'm doing something else or have on in the background. And the seasons get shorter, so it's not 3 full 22 episode seasons. I also skipped the episodes with Rita in season 3 - in retrospect that was the worst part of the show IMO.

I see what you did there.

I'd like to do a full rewatch before the premiere, but it's just over two weeks away. I'm not optimistic it can be done.

Aha! So there are at least two of us. Those of you who have seen it 20 times and thus don't need to spend their free time re-watching, please make us a guide of the 30 key episodes to re-watch.

Question - how does it make most sense to parse discussion of episodes on TC? A single thread for the season isn't great, because some people won't binge watch, so they're left out of all conversations unless they want to be spoilered. Should there be a separate thread for each episode?

In the previous seasons I loved watching an episode, then going to TivoCommunity and see what jokes I missed, then going back and rewatching those parts. That won't be possible if there's only one thread for the season. So I'm thinking best idea may be one thread for each episode, with spoilers allowed through that episode but no further. But that introduces a LOT of threads to keep track of, so I don't know...

Thoughts?

Another vote for separate threads.

I thought the house of cards discussion really suffered being in a single thread s since no one could discuss it until you'd finished the series.

I too would prefer a thread per episode, with spoilers allowed for everything up to and including that episode. That's the way we generally would do it for a normal good show that's expected to garner a decent amount of discussion per episode. The season threads are a good idea for meh shows that don't have a big following or that don't elicit much discussion or where spoilers aren't really a concern. AD doesn't fall into any of those categories, and the fact that all episodes happen to be available simultaneously shouldn't change how we treat it.

Is it against the rules to have a thread to index the other threads? What if someone made a master thread where the OP was updated with links to each episode's thread? It is too bad there is no "summary" second box as that would be helpful in this case where in each thread that box could point to the other episode threads.

Edit: jilter could update this OP to have those links I guess.

While I agree there should be single episode threads, this show poses a unique problem. It's not designed as a flowing narrative from one episode to the next. This batch of episodes largely take place simultaneously, with each episode showing us the same set of circumstances from different character's points of view. They're designed to be watched in any order. So one school of thought my say that it would work best to have each thread self contained with no spoilers from any others. But another way to think about is that each episode enhances the others, so being able to talk about them all at once may be better.

I'm not sure what the best option is.

We all take a pledge and do a binge viewing and have completed it by the 28th. Then we can all talk freely as we like.

Or just label the thread "4th season, spoilers for all episodes," period, and don't worry about how long it's going to take people to watch all 15.

Problem with that is it will discourage people from participating in the thread until they've watched them all, and that will basically kill the vibrant discussion that was so prevalent in threads for AD during the first three seasons.

The more I think about it, I think we should just have threads for each episode, but any reference to any of the other episodes should be in spoiler tags. That way anyone who has seen an episode can participate in discussion about that episode without worrying about what order they've watched the episodes in.

I read an article talking about how expectations are so high for the show that there is no way it can meet them. People are going to be disappointed but none will dare admit it in public
