Watching Schedule  
Finally, our watching schedule! The scheduled days we'll be discussing the episodes we watched will be Sunday and Wednesday. It doesn't matter when you watch the show, just as long as you can participate in discussion on the day on which it's assigned.

For now I will probably be posting the discussion earlier in the day for our members not in North America. At some point this will probably change because I won't be home during the day. We'll cross that bridge when we get there.

You'll notice that the schedule is kind of screwy in July. With all the Harry Potter hullaballoo, we need days off. So I gave them to us. If you don't read Harry Potter, sorry. If you do, I gave us time off for the movie and the book, plus the Fourth of July off for all the Americans. We also have off on Halloween, which happens to fall on a Wednesday this year.

The schedule runs all the way through January. Since we have no idea when Lost comes back, I can't make it any more exact than that. If the Season 4 premiere happens to fall at the end of February (please god NO), I'll rearrange this to get us through February too.

There are a few days where we're going to have to watch 2 episodes in a row. Hopefully that isn't a problem for anyone.

The way it will work is much like read_hp. On the day the episode is assigned, I'll make a post with the episode title and a little summary. Then we can basically just talk about it, the way we all talk about Lost right after it airs. It's all in good fun, and most of you guys came here via my f-list, so you know the deal.

Okay. I'm done for now. I'll be posting reminders to watch episodes throughout each week. However, I am the only person with posting access, so this community will not be flooding your f-list or anything.

**Note that I totally left "Stranger in a Strange Land" off the schedule. That was the worst frakking episode of Lost ever, and I'm not wasting my time with it ever again, EVER. lol it's not worth the pain to watch it again.

ETA: I do realize that we will start watching S3 before the S3 DVDs actually come out on 12/18. Until we are able to actually buy the DVDs, we'll have ways of watching, don't worry.

Thanks for joining! This is going to be awesome!

Haha yeah even during my regular ongoing post that's how we were acting, and we thought something might actually...HAPPEN. But alas. Friggin Bai Ling.
Pinkie: Hurly Dude! Hee heepinkhusky on June 27th, 2007 03:05 am (UTC)
How can we watch the ones from season three in november/early December if it comes out the 18th? Was the release date moved up? Or will we watch them online?

Sweet schedual :] it'll leave off with just enough time to get ready, haha!

Rachelack_attack on June 27th, 2007 03:20 am (UTC)
Ummmm there are...ways. LOL if we wait until the actual DVD release, we will never have enough time to finish the season. I'll go more into that stuff later, but as long as you're able to watch stuff on your computer you should be okay :D

Aren't they still up on the ABC site? Or have they been taken down?
Rachel: [lost] Jack's a very likable guy!ack_attack on June 27th, 2007 02:34 pm (UTC)
I'm not sure, that's an option if they're still up in December lol!

I need more lost icons...
And it wouldn't be "illegal."

Not that I would ever go and download TV shows, music, photoshop, etc... *shifty eyes*

Stranger in a Strange Land was that crappy Jack-centric episode that made no sense at all, right?
Rachel: [lost] Jack BLEGHHHHack_attack on June 27th, 2007 03:43 am (UTC)
LOL yes, yes it was.

Worst. Episode. Ever.

"Stranger in a Strange Land" is an hour of my life I'll never get back. I love Jack, but if I was physically forced wanted to hear about his tattoos, I'd need a few drinks first to help dull the pain of boredom.

I like that you included the Harry Potter dates in there cause THAT WILL NEED TO BE DEFINITELY ACCOUNTED FOR. Oh man, I can't wait to get started. *rubs hands together*

Stranger In A Strange Land was just, dot dot dot question mark
Leyosura: ethanleyosura on June 27th, 2007 05:39 am (UTC)
This is great - I;m looking forward to it.
So cool that you've given us two HP days! XD

And if anyone has problems watching S3, I'm sure we can work something out. *winks*

We could make "Stranger in a Strange Land" a drinking game and then do an ongoing spam while we all watch, lol.

Schedule looks awesome

Bloody Rock God: omg yay!!!aussiephil on June 27th, 2007 12:34 pm (UTC)
Yayz schedule! This is going in my mems so I can keep track. I'm going to incorporate SIASL though - it wasn't the best episode ever, but it's still an episode. So I'll watch it on Dec 21st *nods*

I may space my July episodes out a bit though, as I don't give a stuff about Harry Potter :)
congratulations universe, you win: lost 1miss_universe93 on June 27th, 2007 01:48 pm (UTC)
Sounds great! Thank you for accounting for HP, BTW! Even though I'm not a HP fan, I still have my Potter loving friends dragging me both to the movie and to pick up their book pre-orders, LOL.

LOL WOO @ no Stranger In A Strange Land. All together now: that was an hour of my life I can never get back.
The Other Crazy French Chick: LOST sayid PWNShobbitofkobol on June 27th, 2007 05:05 pm (UTC)
LOLOLOLOL I don't ever want to watch Stranger in a Strange Land again.

And it totally ruined the song with the same name for me now.

OMG YAY YOU GAVE US DAYS OFF FOR HP!!!! On July 22nd I'll have my nose buried in that book
evil_rodent: Lost2evil_rodent on June 27th, 2007 05:40 pm (UTC)
Ha! You will regret skipping SIASL! All its storylines will be crucial in season 4 and beyond. Like when *spoiler* we'll find out that "Sheriff" Isabel has a daughter who can talk to inanimate objects with animal faces ;)
.:i.am.the.rain:.: charliereadywreadywit on June 27th, 2007 08:25 pm (UTC)
so i was all awwww bummed cause i thought we were just doing third season and i was like "how is this gonna work?" and well duh...

Both one and the other: Sawyer wants me! by queendmlostlollipop on June 27th, 2007 08:30 pm (UTC)
I joined as soon as I saw this! Cursed with family members and friends who don't really give a flying frak about LOST, I've been dying to discuss it with someone who actually cares!

Not being in the US, the channel that airs LOST here is only halfway through season 3 now (and on summer hiatus), but hopefully I'll be caught up by the time we get there. I read all the spoilers I can get my hands on anyway.
Both one and the other: Sawyer wants me! by queendmlostlollipop on June 27th, 2007 08:36 pm (UTC)
Also, this means I have not yet seen 'Stranger in a Strange Land', which means I can't make fun of it (then again, knowing it's a Jack episode, I probably will anyway).

Hey, how about instead of LOST's SIASL, we watch the episode of the same name from 'Hercules: The Legendary Journeys', and mentally replace Kevin Sorbo with Matthew Fox? It can only be an improvement, right? Right...?
buttersb on June 27th, 2007 08:30 pm (UTC)
Oh I am excited, hopefully my work schedule won't interfere with discussion time. I have to second the person who thinks drunk viewing of SIASL would be hysterical.
Karen Parisot: Lost/Hurley Kicks Assbeanpop on June 27th, 2007 08:45 pm (UTC)
This sounds so cool! I've always wanted to do this. Now I have a reason to! :)

And YAY at giving us TWO HP days! :D

And yeah, very excited about not having to watch Stranger in a Strange Land again. But I agree with the ones up there that making it into a drunk viewing could be very entertaining! :)
My love is like whoapretty_fits on June 27th, 2007 09:20 pm (UTC)
Sounds good, I've been meaning to watch the rest of Lost beyond Season 1.
Melissa: lostpromiseoftin on June 28th, 2007 02:08 am (UTC)
... but I liked Stranger in a Strange Land.

*runs away before she gets pelted*
amantium_irae: Jack saysamantium_irae on June 28th, 2007 03:24 am (UTC)
No, don't. We can't all do groupthink and hang out with the cool kids. The two of us can watch together. I have plenty of hours in my life I don't dedicate to being useful to humanity on the internet.

Thanks for the schedule.
Leanne: Lost: Jack chain_onebreath on June 30th, 2007 12:12 am (UTC)
I'll join you too!

lover all alone: Jack WINS!invisiblelove on July 15th, 2007 04:27 am (UTC)
LOL I didn't think it was that bad either. Jack's had better flashback episodes, but I'll be watching it too. Jack's my favorite anyway, plus it would SO agitate my OCD to rewatch every episode except one! ;)

Honestly I can't really make that promise as about 98% of the members here have seen all of the episodes, and it would be unfair to limit their discussions.

If there's a way I can figure this out for everyone to participate, I'll let everyone know haha. It's going to be hard, though.
seafoam10roads on June 29th, 2007 11:17 pm (UTC)
This is such a cool idea, I've never seen lost before, I might try to get into it :)
leccyshep on June 30th, 2007 03:54 pm (UTC)
oooh, looking forward to this *pees pants*
