I realize I've only put up one post on this board so far, but may I try something?
Over on the late, lamented Even Deeper Blurting board, I tried an idea back during the Great Drought, that period after the show's cancellation but before the advent of CT and RT. In order to keep up my interest and involvement, I decided to try and randomly select an episode from my collection each week to watch and post comments on. As time went on, and the cast started appearing in new stuff, I added an additional selection for outside projects. So, if you don't mind, I'd like to try that sort of thing here.
A word on definitions: first, I'm defining the Originals as any episode of the show or compilation thereof (like shorts or host segment collections). Next, I'm defining the Outsiders as anything with the cast where they're basically not appearing in MST character. That includes convention footage, interviews, other series appearances, or things like that. I wasn't sure where I'd place behind-the-scenes features about the show itself, since they were also produced by BBI, so I've decided to list them as Outsiders. And, carrying over from the old board, you see me refer to TFNWSRN or TSNWSRN; those refer to The First Network Which Shall Remain Nameless (the one that Doug Herzog took over) and The Second Network Which Shall Remain Nameless (the one that Bonnie Hammer took over).
A word on scheduling: I usually watch the Outsiders on Saturdays and the Originals on Sundays. For anyone who wants to play along, I'll try and post things by Friday. And I'll also occasionally go outside the normal rotation for special events, like RT live remotes or other reasons. And, for those who might have followed my progress (such as it was) on the old board, I'm not going to try and pick up where I left off. I'm going to start up again from scratch.
Now, if anyone thinks I'm being presumptuous by doing this so early, I apologize in advance. I just hope this turns out OK, and that you'll be interested. So, I'm going now to the mayonnaise jar on Funk & Wagnall's front porch (OK, it's a Minneapolis Public Library insulated coffee mug) and the specially constructed stainless steel vault (OK, it's an old popcorn can) and where I keep the slips for, respectively, the Outsiders and the Originals.
For week 1, I'm going outside the rotation for the Outsiders for..."Other Space (Episodes 1 & 2)"...
-I want to watch these in order, so I can't just randomly select them. I haven't seen the show yet, and I'm looking forward to this.
...and for the Originals, this week's selection is... "The Projected Man" (Show 901).
