How about half an episode once every three weeks? Really stretch this thing out.
Wake me up when you get through Season 1. I just rewatched TNG Season 1 a few weeks ago, and I'm still recovering. Bleh, there were some really baaaad episodes that didn't get any better with time.
Wow, two immediate thread craps and a budding argument about seasons vs. episodes.
In other words, same old, same old.
Yes, but a guy's head blows up! In front of Riker!
I'm interested. I have most of the episodes on DVD that I copied from the Tivo. No need to go through the hassle that is Netflix.
I agree with the others that want to use a single thread per episode.
Well, it won't truly be a Star Trek thread until we have some people posting every week about how awful the show is but they continue to watch.
OK, here's how I'll get it started, then.
New thread for each episode.
Two to three episodes per week (I might just create the threads, but not have time to watch)
Spoilers are allowed
If I had a budget, I'd give everyone that actually makes it through season 1 a prize.
I'll create the threads for the first three episodes tonight.
Last year I decided to try watching all the Trek series, from classic straight through to Enterprise. Watched classic, animated, TNG and most of DS9 through season 3, but then I lost interest.
Don't get me wrong, I still love Trek (including TNG and DS9) but I really didn't realize how glacially the new series were plotted until I went back and rewatched them.
The only one I really want to go back and do a rewatch of is DS9, but unfortunately it won't hit Netflix instant watch until October.
Agree w/Bierboy but it looks like it's too late. I think it really should be one thread per season to keep the congestion down. Per http://memory-alpha.org/wiki/Star_Trek:_The_Next_Generation, there were 176 eps!
Some eps were so crappy, they hardly deserve a thread. Even some of the actors at the Star Trek convention I just returned from in Vegas made fun of a few of them. Code of Honor was one of them, IIRC. I think it was Tasha... err Denise Crosby who made fun of that one.
You gotta also put in SPOILERS in the title j/k, just like those B5 threads.
If I have time to watch the TNG episodes (which I probably won't as I'm currently blasting through Farscape and Stargate:Universe), I'll be just as harsh on it.
The first season is egregiously bad with only one or two decent episodes.
And unlike at least one of the crappers, I'll have actually watched the episodes in question.
Obviously (and unfortunately) common sense does NOT prevail in these fora....
....and already I see the congestion has begun....
Tor began a ST:TNG rewatch project a few months ago and is documenting it here. It may be interesting to read their comments after watching each episode.
If only there was a way to ignore the threads you don't want to see...
But that would take some common sense.
Has nothing to do with "ignoring the threads" and everything to do with adding unwanted threads to the forum making it more difficult to find threads about current shows....
You know that you can click to ignore a thread and it disappears from your view, right? It's a handy feature and solves the issue you're having.
This. When they say "ignore the threads" they don't mean mentally ignore them (i.e. pretend they don't exist) they mean use the Ignore Thread feature of the forum, which hides the thread from view completely.
AFAIK, you have to OPEN the thread first in order to ignore it. So, if the OP continues opening up threads on TNG eps and gets thru all of them, that's ~176 new threads that individually have to be ignored. That's at least 528 mouse clicks...
Install Greasemonkey and the Ignore Thread add-on. You'll get a little X at the end of the thread title in the thread list. Click on it and the thread instantly disappears.
It's 9 clicks a week. I think it's manageable. Small price to pay for being able to customize the content of the forum to an individual's liking.
