Infinite Squee

Invisible Man watch/rewatch

I am clearly going to need an I-Man icon ...

I actually rewatched the premiere last night (yeah, I know, I have no patience ...) and a) I loved it a lot, and b) I had forgotten how dark this show is, in spite of also being utterly ridiculous. So yes, this rewatch is a GO!

How about the first discussion post going up this Saturday? Does that sound good to everyone -- too soon, not soon enough? (Since I'm in the Alaska time zone, which is hours behind EVERYWHERE, it'll probably be late Saturday afternoon/evening for most people.)

It looks like the poll results are leaning towards either one or two episodes a week, with most people being able to do both. Why don't we start out with two -- one on the weekend, one in the middle of the week -- and we can always drop down to just putting up a single weekend post if two is too many. Also, the premiere is LONG -- it's almost an hour and a half. So that needs to be factored in too. With so few of us, we can always just decide on the fly if we're going to want another discussion post in a particular week, or not.

Discussion of future episodes/plot points will be fine in comments as long as it's hidden (rot13, spoiler-span text, lj-spoiler cuts) so people watching it for the first time can avoid it.

The whole show (both seasons) is available for free on Hulu and it looks like Youtube also has a lot of full episodes, especially the early ones, if you can't get Hulu to work because of country restrictions or something else.

Sound good? Start this Saturday? Or maybe Sunday would be better so people have all weekend to watch it? \o?

I watched the pilot today and enjoyed it enormously. I am not sure I'll be able to keep up with a weekly schedule - the lack of closed captioning may be a deal breaker; I can only watch during naptimes, and camping on the volume remote and hoping the surprise loud bits don't wake the Guppy is less fun than it sounds. Also, commercials! Ugh! I've been utterly spoiled by Netflix and forgot how much I hate them.

Still, I'm tempted - it was a really FUN opening episode.
I'm still puzzled that Netflix doesn't have it. How can Netflix *not* have it? Netflix has everything! But it doesn't.

Do you want to borrow my DVDs? I have the first season -- that's how I'm watching them, actually, but I don't mind switching to Hulu (especially since it's likely that I'll end up being a ways ahead of where the discussion posts are). If you want to, you could pick them up when you're here next week.

I'm also glad you enjoyed it! I was surprised how strong the opening episode was, honestly -- I remember the show being fun but dumb, and was braced for it to suck a lot, but that was actually pretty good.
