Chat sessions to coincide with episodes?

Post by SunburnedPenguin on Wed May 14, 2008 3:52 am

Had a chat with Nino_1 earlier who had a fantastic idea...to use the chatbox to chat about the new episodes as they are airing Smile

I think this is a great idea, but it would have to be twice weekly....thursday for the USA viewers and Sunday for the UK viewers.

The chatbox is not displaying properly (server side issue that should be resolved soon) but once you clicik "log in" it is fine, and I think it could really add a new dimension to the Lost experience Smile

What do you think?

I have added a poll but please post your comments and/or alternative suggestions!

I think this is great as I log into the fuselage each week to see the responses of the americans as the show airs their. I can not see what they are seeing but I can vusualise the episode through their comments. BUT I seem always to get kicked out of that thread about 30 minutes into the episode!

I think there is always going to be an issue of USA members having seen the episode before the UK and possible spoliers in chat, the only thing I can suggest is avoiding the chatbox while the chat is going on if you dont want to be spoiled Smile

Can Losties in the UK stream episodes online? They are usually up within a few hours of the episode's airing on ABC on a few different sites. And, also curious about this, can you watch Streaming on ABC.com or is that blocked for the rest of the planet?

MSHL I tend to watch it streamed but that would still not allow for a chat whilst watching the episode, unless we synchronized and streamed at the same time (Danger of crossing the streams????)

You can't watch on ABC in the UK I can't talk for the rest of the planet but by guess would e that its the same.

No it doesnt allow UK to view the streams on ABC.

Whats more annoying though is that when you get episode 12 today, we will get episode 11 on sunday so we are now an episode behind...wasnt like that before so Jacob only knows what the wisdom behind that is. Another case of SKY1's genius Rolling Eyes

Most people in the UK, particularily those who dont have SKYTV, download through other means tho to keep current with the rest of the world.

I will change the wording on "recent theories" and "older theories" and move a few topics about, to accomodate this I think. USA viewers can then use "recent theories" to post on the most recent episode, and I will move them into "older theories" once the same episode has aired in the UK. UK viewers have a choice wether they want to be spoiled or not then.

Chat will have to be left down to individual descretion though, dont feel you cant talk about too much in there while the episode is airing, UK viewers have a choice wether to view it or not. I will make a post highlighting this fact.

Hope that helps Smile
