Introducing SHOW CLUB!!!
Television is often a solo endeavor. You watch the next episode during a kid's nap time, over your lunch break, or while your husband is snoring on the couch at 8:30pm. You power through, feel all the emotions, and find a random friend who watched the same show five years ago when it was cool and process over text for two minutes.
Nobody wants to be this guy. We can do better.
Introducing Show Club!
It's like a book club but for a show. I know, right?! Here's the plan:
Over the summer, we're going to watch a show together. Then we're going to talk about the show. Then we're going to make lists about the show. Then we're going to ogle the dudes from the show.
It's gonna be great.
Don't worry. If Show Club isn't your scene, it's happening in a separate Facebook group, not here on the blog. So after today, you won't have to hear about it unless you want to.
Most of you are either super into it or have never seen it. (And for the six of you who don't like LOST, no shame. Come play during our next Show Club.)
If you're a LOST newbie, this is your chance to almost recreate the beauty of watching it live and then getting on the Internet the next day to talk about it. LOST was one of the first shows to have an online spoiler culture, and it was a blast. If you missed out the first time, you can get a little taste now.
We'll watch three episodes a week; that'll get us through the first season over the summer.
June 6-12: The Pilot (both parts) and Tabula Rasa
June 13-19: Walkabout, White Rabbit, House of the Rising Sun
June 20-26: The Moth, Confidence Man, Solitary
June 27-July 3: Raised by Another, All the Best Cowboys Have Daddy Issues, Whatever the Case May Be
July 4-10: Hearts and Minds, Special, Homecoming
July 11-17: Outlaws, ...In Translation, Number
July 18-24: Deus Ex Machina, Do No Harm, The Greater Good
July 25-31: Born to Run, Exodus Parts 1 and 2
Once a week, I'll broadcast live in the Facebook group and talk about the episodes we just watched, and throughout the week, I'll post all kinds of goodies for you to consume at your leisure. This is also where you can interact with each other about WHAT JUST HAPPENED and such.
THIS IS GOING TO BE AWESOME.
