Outlander and Other Show Discussions  
Can you believe Outlander is still 3 or more months away? I say 3 because it is supposed to come back in September which is the worst time of the year for shows... Everything will be starting and now I will be devoting all my time to Outlander? Ugh. Anyways, with that much time on our hands I thought maybe I would ask a question...

Do you want to discuss Game of Thrones (starting in July and ending in August)?

I'll check out the posts

I'm definitely willing to have the discussions going because I enjoy GOT but I don't know if I have time to run discussion posts. Is there anyone willing to do it?

And just because I miss Outlander....

Would it be necessary to have formal discussion posts along the lines of what you do for Outlander? Could we not just start a post the day after an episode airs and just let people say whatever they want about the episode?

I appreciate what you do for the Outlander discussions -- it's a lot of work, but I often find that the questions you list for discussion aren't things that particularly interest me, so I don't really have anything to say. I tend to find such a structured approach a bit confining. It would be far less complicated for GofT to just title a post "Season 7, Episode 1" and let people raise whatever caught their fancy. I would certainly be willing to take responsibility for starting that kind of post -- it just might be a few days late because we torrent the show and don't always watch it the very next day.

Seriously? Okay so that works for me and it works for Outlander. I do work hard on that and I'd rather someone tell me... "don't work that hard" because I want to discuss the show but if the questions aren't a help then okay.

Do you think I should post my opinion of the episode or just post a comment to the post? Because I can do either. I kind of based my original posting idea off a community I was part of that discussed the books but I can scratch that all together.

Now that you've said this *hugs* I'm going to maybe post the picture and the Starz description of the episode and I'll leave the poll in so people who don't want to chat can still say how much they liked it and that is all.... well the share feature because I like the idea that it could be accessed from other fans LJs. And maybe anything news worthy to share.

That is honestly a relief. I mean now I can keep notes on the show and just give my... this is what I noticed.

So go for it with GOT. I do the same thing. I never seem to watch them the night of and it could take me a couple days to get them watched.

I would suggest making the initial post with plot description, but leave all reactions/opinions/thoughts in a reply to the lead-off post. But we can use Game of Thrones as a test to see what might work work best.

That is a plan. Sometimes I over think things.

Also, who knows -- maybe a less formal approach might encourage more lurkers to chime in with actual comments.
Jill aka Josireesanwar on June 29th, 2017 09:51 pm (UTC)
Yeah maybe. I hope so because I want to talk about the show. I wish we could all just sit down somewhere an gab about it.

Oh yes, that would be my choice and much easier for Jill.
