    Anything watchable (lol) for the eastcoasters? (I’m one of ’em.)

  2. It’s watch as you want. I’m saying that my goal is to watch at that time! 🙂

  3. Having gone through the entire series during 2010 (I just happened to be starting season 5 right before Clare Kramer answered my invitation to join our Comic-Con panel), I can say this is definitely worthwhile. Watching with the perspective of 2011 eyes and sharing it as a common experience with other fans is a great idea.

  4. “sharing it as a common experience with other fans is a great idea.”

    Yes, Kat! This. Exactly. One of the best things about the Buffy course we did at UW ( was watching and talking about episodes with a group of people – people who I both bonded with deeply and who pushed my critical thinking and perspective. Being able to do that again, but on a larger, if less intimate, scale is something I am very much looking forward to!

    Excited to hear what you have to say! (And Clare, too, if she’s into it! 😉

  5. Thanks for the shout-out, Jennifer! I’m so excited to see what everyone else is going to write. It’s gonna be a fun year. 😉

  6. Nikki – Thank YOU for putting this all together!!!

    Thanks for the mention, Jennifer! I am already noticing so many new things and I may very well post my thoughts on episodes outside of my delineated weeks as I engage in the conversations because there is just so much to say!
