Frak parties are great ways for GWCers to hang out together as a community, no matter where they call home. The term refers to GWCers’ online gatherings where everyone watches a current program as it airs — or a previously recorded program/movie that everyone watches in sync — and engages in commentary, discussion, silliness, and camaraderie in real time. When you can’t physically relocate to be with GWC friends, frak parties are the next best thing. And the commentaries from this Hive Mind are witty and hilarious!
To find a scheduled frak party, check the calendar. To join any party, simply enter the forum thread marked for the event under the heading “Events” and the subheading “Community Frak Parties.” Cue up your viewing material and comment (and reload the page) to your heart’s content!
Some text-only excerpts from the Logan’s Run frak party in September 2010 (you may notice the tendency toward MST3K-ing):

Mr. Lister, Sir: Was that the Wilhelm scream. It sounded kinda like it? … mmmmmm. I have a hankering for Meatloaf now.
Frakkintalos: I get older but the people at Carousel all stay the same.
Janitorbob: Nice daishiki
Solai: It sounds like the computer is on a walkie talkie.
BadgerSpoon: So why is the computer explaining this to him? ETA: Ah, never mind. Now I remember.
Mr. Lister, Sir: Hehe the computer said “Penetrate the seal”
So there you have it! Frak parties, in a nutberry. Come join the fun!
