Hey JWWM followers!! As a newer follower of JWWM, I think it would be really fun to connect with those of you who have been part of the walk for years and also engage newer folks like me who didn’t come by JWWM until later on. I had an idea about something while we “just wait with Iwsod” , and threw this idea out to her. She suggested I add a comment to the blog to see how much interest we may have in this approach.

So…would any of you be interested in simultaneously and as collectively as possible going on a re-walk through an episode’s posts (or multiple episodes)? I’ve been going through a few throughout the last several weeks while I watched through the series in revised order (which is fabulous, and thanks to all who added to making it). But I watched it so fast I wasn’t able to keep up the same pace with JWWM and would love to go back to some episodes to kinda simmer on them some more. We could collectively decide on maybe an episode a week?…Watch it if possible, and go back through all the posts/comments for that episode, adding comments as we go through it that week, if so inclined? It has been really awesome to think through and appreciate everyone’s viewpoints on those eps I have binge-commented on recently, and would love to find a way to keep our “walk”ing legs active before we get back to Nightcrawler…

Anyhoo, what are your thoughts? Please share your thoughts by replying to this comment if you would like to re-visit maybe an episode a week or so, and if you have any suggestions for an episode or groupings of episodes or something….

Looking forward to hearing from you!!!

 

  • Nancy | November 5, 2018 at 1:16 pmBack in early September, after Gilby57 posted that she was in S1 going through the episodes, I’ve been doing the same, albeit slowly as RL permits. Like you, I am using the brilliant revised order, making comments along the way. Next for me is “I am not now, nor have I …”That being said, count me in, you have a great idea. An episode per week sounds incredibly ambitious as we are headed into Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year holidays. An episode each month perhaps?

     

    • iwsod | November 5, 2018 at 6:59 pm would you guys like me to publish a little post about this – so you have a post to comment on and discuss plans?
      I can do a super quick post and leave you guys to organise yourselves if you like.. just let me know. [If you are happy just to keep using this post that’s cool too]
      Great idea Amandarambler – and hiya Nancy – I’m so glad you are commenting along the way

       

      • Amandarambler | November 5, 2018 at 10:36 pmYay!!!!! So happy to hear from everyone!! Iwsod, whatever is the easiest way for you for this discussion to continue sounds great to me!Also, to everyone, I’m loving your thoughts and excited to get the ball rolling to form a plan! I’m thinking we could select episodes at random, not necessarily have to do back to back episodes in order – maybe skip around some, maybe highlight a couple per season or select eps that have a general theme – favorites, non-favorites, ALCE around Christmas?, excessive dimple or Duffy sightings, etc. (Not saying we would do ALL that I just suggested, but throwing out grouped ideas…”noodles” to work with, to quote Quidd…

         

  • Cindy Davis | November 5, 2018 at 2:17 pmHey I am in, I might be able to convince Clagjanet to run through it again.  
  • Gilby57 | November 5, 2018 at 8:13 pm |Great Idea! But as mentioned the Holidaze are coming so maybe we could start with an Episode every 2 weeks? And then when the January Blahs set in we could do an Episode a week. Just a suggestion. Not sure how to phrase this? Gilby57 is a He, Yes that is Me. 
  • sara | November 5, 2018 at 11:28 pmI’m in. The most I’ve been able to do these days is read and ‘like’ but I’m on board.  
  • clagjanet | November 6, 2018 at 1:48 amI’m in! 
  • jule | November 6, 2018 at 2:53 am
    Sounds like a lovely idea! I may not be able to comment much but I will definitely follow with glee!

    Discuss away – who wants to be involved.. and how you’d like to go about it. [real life means I will likely only be able to participate sporadically!] I’ll leave it in your hands guys! Iwsod.

Just Walk With Me Update!

Hi Everyone! Time to share an update!

If you are a regular visitor, you’ll have noticed my very slow progress and absences- I miss you guys!! I miss SMK!! So here’s a heads up on what is happening with JWWM. TheFirstTime-Banner1
The walk has been going now nearly 7 years! Whoa…
I can promise you, had I been on this walk alone – I would not have gotten past the first year (and the episode Lost and Found!). I value all who read and comment so I’ll share how things are looking for the walk and what is ahead.
Service-BannerA1Final_zps0432cde7
I fully intend to complete the walk through all 88 episodes!

However… my online time (to reply to comments) and time for writing blog posts has pretty much become non-existent of late! Which makes me sad – but hey we can only do what we can do in life right? I can see that between now and the middle of 2019 I’m going to have even less time…Tegnersee-Banner3Final_zps879051d8  So here is what’s going to happen with JWWM moving forward: The walk is not going to be regular, I can’t be relied upon to post regularly (oh the shame haaa). Walks through season 4 episodes are going to be published irregularly – there may be long gaps between new episodes..but once I start a new episode I won’t have time gaps in episodes and I’ll probably publish for a week or two every few days. I will be aiming to walk through most season 4 episodes with much less detail than I’ve enjoyed covering season 1-3 too. However there are a few stand out season 4 eps which it would break my heart to not give it the love it deserves – yes like the next episode we will be walking through: Night Crawler!!!!

I suggest if you haven’t already – make sure you subscribe to the blog – and I will publish to update when a new episode is about to start being walked through and hopefully we can all meet back here around the same time to enjoy the episode together-ish! 

When I will publish the next episode I don’t know. This may be a one or two episodes a year kind of deal – I’m trying not to put expectations on myself and go with the flow, while giving all you wonderful people an idea of what’s going on.

I have the transcript for Nightcrawler all ready for me to actually write the posts.. and for anyone who has offered to transcribe dialogue – Thank you!!!! and I’ll try and give you an idea of when it may be needed (but if you can’t do it don’t worry I’ll just include less dialogue). Utopia-Banner6_zps08a4e6a0

If anyone would like to write some guest posts while things are very quiet – go for it!! We’ll be happy to publish your smk fun here!

Thanks again for an amazing 7 years – I hope there will be another 7 ahead! lol maybe we will get to the of season 4 by year 2025! haaaa!

Hope I will see you all stop by from time to time – I’m so grateful to have had you all to walk with!!! I thank you for your understanding and patience! Thanks to BJo and Learjet also for helping to moderate this forum and keep things running smoothly.

Any questions or suggestions, please share them in the comments below.

8/8 Season Four Episode Five: It’s in the Water

It’s tag time!! Back to IFF and the Q Bureau. Amanda is on the phone.
Amanda (on phone): That’s terrific Sally, I know you’ll be happy. 4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_26190190190_thumb(Lee comes in)
4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_26210877544_thumb

4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_26257257257_thumb
(pause) Okay…
4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_26272939606_thumb
…Say hello to Carmine for us. All right. Buh-bye.
(hangs up phone)
Lee (sits on side of Amanda’s desk): Who’s that? Sally?
4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_26336336336_thumb
Amanda:
Yeah, you know, Carmine’s been working all day with the Army engineers on the Omega Triad System.
Lee: I think the judge might take that into consideration at his trial.
Amanda: Hope so, he’s got a lot to look forward to.
4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_26417417417_thumb

Lee:
Why? 4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_26439105772_thumb
Amanda: He asked Sally to marry him. 4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_26444778111_thumb
Lee (grinning): No. 4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_26467133800_thumb
Amanda: Mm-hm.
Lee: When’s the big day?
[Wait wait wait.. did Sally actually say yes?! I mean. Tee hee.. for me Carmine is no catch! Sally is the catch! ]
4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_26500834168_thumb
Amanda:
They haven’t set a date, they’re going to take it one step at a time.
(Amanda doesn’t look up)
[Typical Carmine. ask her to marry him, but don’t set a date. LOL I know I’m so mean to Carmine!]
4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_26509175843_thumb
(Hearing this, Lee is thoughtful a moment, taking in Amanda)4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_26520854188_thumb
Lee:
Well, you never know. Maybe one day… 4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_26561227895_thumb
(Lee gives Amanda a sideways sneaky look)
4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_26570570571_thumb
Amanda:
What? 4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_26579579580_thumb
Lee:

Is he wearing his kissing tie?! With the lips??!! lol I don’t think so.. but in the close up it looks like it! ]
Amanda: Oh yeah. (smiles) Well, ahh she asked me if I thought I’d ever get married again and I said “You never know, maybe someday.”
4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_26677677678_thumb
[Amanda is such a strong woman. She manages to give an answer while keeping it casual and keeping herself composed.]
Lee reacts..
4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_26683350017_thumb

4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_26689356023_thumb(Lee winks at her.)
picasion.com_8e825fa28947f2da6bf2432fec7db476_thumb
[I’ll do a wink  gif.. winks always look funny in still images!]
Lee quickly leans in for a kiss…
4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_26710377044_thumb

4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_26714714715_thumb

– but Billy walks into the Q-Bureau. Gah! They pull apart. 4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_26721721722_thumb
[CINDY: Of course Billy walks in. GRRRR!]
[ROFL how Amanda immediately goes to act like she is writing something.]
4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_26735735736_thumb
Billy: We have a meeting at the White House. Where’s the report?
(Lee [Mr Professional] rummages around in the bookcase for the report.)
Lee: Uh, it’s right here, Billy. Just relax for a second. 4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_26766099433_thumb

Amanda:
Yeah second one under.
Lee: Yeah, right here
(Lee hands report to Billy.. Lee moves to leave the office following Billy.)
[Almost like he is trying to usher Billy out of the office so Billy can’t address his suspicion he walked in on something.. Both Lee and Amanda trying to act casual.]
4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_26796463130_thumb
Amanda: See you later!
(Lee gives Amanda a last look as he heads out the door.)
4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_26810477144_thumb
(He lets out an audible sigh)
[I think Amanda would have heard that! I swear this is ‘It’s in the Sighs’! ]
4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_26823156490_thumb
[I think this sigh is a – ‘I wanted that kiss.. and I wanted to finish this conversation!’ what do you think?]
Lee closes the door giving Amanda a last little sly smile.
4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_26832832833_thumb
Amanda looks up slyly smiling to herself also..  4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_26838838839_thumb[what’s she thinking folks?!]
4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_26872539206_thumb
Amanda looks up and chuckles to herself..
[Ahhhh she is one happy woman!!!
Is that two zebra on her desk?!]
And the episode ends.

What a way to leave things!!! Swoony!!!
Talk of marriage?! Amanda is open to marriage?! Lee also seems to be open to exploring marriage no??!!!! Squeeeeeee… Is marriage on Lee’s mind??!! I’m left with the vibe that this conversation is by no means finished!!!!

Okay if it’s thanks to Carmine that we get Lee and Amanda actually talking about marriage – then I like him. haaaaa..

For me, this episode has a couple of cute moments, but overall it’s pretty slow moving and seemed full of lots of filler.. and not the good (Lee and Amanda in love type). So I’m really sorry that this episode went so long on JWWM!
But.. this tag does leave me with warm fuzzy feelings about this ep. LOL!

Thanks again to Cindy for her transcription – and for sharing some comments along the way – it’s been lots of fun!!! Anyone else transcribing dialogue – feel free to do the same if you like!

Sooooo do tell! what do you all think of this tag? Of this episode as a whole?
