As a number of you have astutely noticed, our current re-watch schedule runs a tad bit slow in terms of reaching a target of completing the entire canon just shy of season four. Now that we’ve reached the end of season one,we wanted to take a minute to update you on our plan.
And unlike the Cylons in season three, we do have a plan.
First of all, we’re combining all two-part episodes into a single re-watch week. These are more fun to watch together anyway. Next, we’ve succumbed to the (correct) pressure and created an official Google calendar for the re-watch:
As you can see from the calendar, we’re currently finishing up season three in February. While official sources say we’ll receive season four in “early 2008,” we (sadly) can’t assume that means January 1st. So this schedule might work fine. Then again, we’re also going to need to devote some time to Razor in November, so we may need tocompress the schedule a bit more.
That’s really why we created the Google calendar. There’s no way for us to know at this moment how we’re going to need to handle, say, September’s re-watch schedule. We’ll have to talk it out here on GWC.com and adjust as we go to make sure we’re all caught up and ready for Razor and season four.
So subscribe to the Google calendar and you’ll automatically be privvy to the new sh… tuff.
PS: We’re setting up for the commentary ‘casts now and should be recording in an hour or so. Look for more of this weekend’s podcasting extravaganza later today.
Update: Sorry about issues with the button. I’ll troubleshoot them as soon as we’re done recording today’s commentary episodes. One down, one to go!
Update #2: The button works fine — which shouldn’t surprise me so much as it’s a direct copy of Google’s code — but you must be logged into your google calendar when you click it. Then it offers you the opportunity to subscribe.
