I'm about halfway through S3 right now, and I'm finding that I've forgotten nearly everything about this season. I was stunned when VM solved the rapist case in the 9th ep - it seemed like that was going to be a season-long arc.

Still really enjoying it, and hoping to finish before next Friday.

I'm half way through s3 too. I remembered it was three independent arcs but had forgotten who killed
Spoiler:
the Dean.


My biggest surprise on re-watch is how much I enjoy Dick.

(have fun with that.)

He makes a lot of little gestures that are a riot.

If you haven't watched Party Down you need to, he pretty much plays the same character.

I'm so far behind. I only just finished season 1 earlier this week and I'm only a couple episodes into season 2.

Yeah, Ryan Hansen is so fun to watch.

I also love spotting the actors in really small parts who have gone on to bigger/better roles. There are some major stars in S1 (i.e. Jessica Chastain, Aaron Paul), but even S3 has had a few decent ones (like Rachelle Lefevre and Armie Hammer).

I was surprised to see Matt Czuchry. I guess enough time passed between the last time I saw VM and starting The Good Wife that I didn't realize I'd seen him before.

And in looking him up on IMDB just now I see he's exactly three months older than I am.

I started a rewatch and got distracted somewhere in season 1 and never finished. I may have to do a major binge watch this weekend and next week to get caught up.

I finished S3 a few weeks ago. That was watch #3 for me. Now I'm kind of bouncing around. I watched a few episodes of S1 and am now back to S2.

I had every intention of re-watching before the movie but that did not quite work out.

Same with me. I haven't seen any of the episodes since they first aired. I'm sure I'm going to miss a lot of the references in the movie because of this.

If only the rest of you had thought this through as well as I did. All you need is a newborn and then you too can have countless hours available in the middle of the night!

I just finished copying the HD versions of Season 1 to the TiVo, and seasons 2 and 3 are cued up. All I have to do is hit the "Play all files in this folder" button, not eat or sleep, and I can get through the series before the weekend is out.

So...what/who do you hope gets mentioned in the movie? For example, for me:

Spoiler:
I would like to know if anyone has been in contact with Duncan


and

Spoiler:
I hope there is mention of Madison and Mac being switched at birth

I may be unusual here in that I have not watched one complete episode of the show, ever. I have the DVDs. My wife liked it though. Looking forward to enjoying the movie on its own merits.

I finished my rewatch a few months ago and I feel like I've forgotten everything! I hope it all comes back to me.

I've gone on a total information blackout for the last couple of weeks. I've been deliberately avoiding news coverage, interviews, etc. Definitely not watching the clip.

Me either. But the willpower is going to be sorely tested until I see the AMC screening on Thursday. Sepinwall has posted his review. And since the movie premiered in Austin yesterday, lots of other opinions are going to start coming. Really going to try to avoid them.

I couldn't help but see the preview of Sepinwall's review in my RSS reader. Just the first couple of sentences. In them, he said:

Spoiler:
"It's a blast."

Well, I've binge watched my way through season 1. Some of the more minor supporting characters even now after a rewatch still tend to blend together in my brain, like Carrie Bishop and Madison Sinclair.

Season 2 is oddly enough fresher in my brain than any of the other seasons, so I may skip a rewatch of that and move straight onto season 3, which I don't think I've rewatched since the show left the air (and in fact, I'm not terribly certain I actually ever finished watching the first time... I think I may have missed the last 5 or so episodes.)

I haven't watched since the original airings, but I remember thinking then that they couldn't quite figure out what to do with Wallace. He just seemed like a token best friend and never really had a big role in the show as far as I recall.

I appreciated that they gave Veronica some mostly normal, non-angst-y friends, such as Wallace and others. I think without Wallace, the series could have gotten a little too dark.

I did end up jumping over season 2 and straight to season 3. I honestly don't remember *anything* about this season, so it feels all brand new to me. I'm letting TiVo record my programs for this week, and watching through VM instead, hoping to get through season 3 by the end of the week.

Didn't expect they'd have commercials for the movie -- saw them twice during Teen Wolf tonight.
