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.

    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.

  1. Hey everyone! Just want to make sure to clarify- we have commenced our re-walk through Always Look a Gift Horse in the Mouth! Just access the episode’s posts by selecting Season 1 links in the Menu, then select the episode from the list. And remember to start your comments with our #2018rewatch hashtag! Looking forward to hearing from you all over there! 🤗

    • We just started with Always Look A Gift Horse … Amandarambler chose it for what remains of November because it’s set during Thanksgiving in the USA.

      For the month of December, iwsod suggested The Long Christmas Eve and we start that December 1st.

      We’re posting a comment-insight on the episode blog. To highlight it’s part of this re-walk, begin your post with: #2018rewatch

      Hope this helps, samellatrent!

  4. Oh my goodness, you guys, I am so excited about the response to this I could pop!!!!!
    #2018rewatch, HERE WE COME!!!! 😁😁😁😁😁😁😁

    So, I guess we can start with ALAGHITM over the weekend and work through it until Dec 1!!! Maybe whoever is “it” for the episode set the pace through that ep’s posts…Since ALAGHITM is in season 1 and has fewer posts, we could linger at each post before moving to the next one – eps with more posts maybe we can open up a few posts at a time before moving ahead to the next several posts for that ep? That way it could be more similar to when Iwsod is walking through an episode and publishing new posts?

    So in other words, when you see the episode “leader” comment on a new post with #2018rewatch, that post is then considered up for commenting and we’ll all hang out there until the leader moves ahead? Does this make sense and/or sound easy to follow?

    Have I mentioned that THIS IS SO EXCITING!?!?!?! 🤗🤗 I’m so excited to be connecting with the JWWM, old and new, all over the globe. Iwsod, you are so awesome for starting and sustaining JWWM. THANK YOU!

    • go Amandarambler! Lets see how we go with speed and timing.. some of us may be sporadic – but if we are all looking at the same episode in the same month – chances are we’ll be able to have some great exchanges together! As you say the coverage of different eps varies in depth so we’ll see. some of the early eps deserve more love and attention than they originally got that’s for sure!
      I’d be curious to see what insights come from the scripts as we visit these random episodes – often I never got to the scripts because I had no time.. this is a chance to dig in some more and maybe discover a few more gems.. If anyone is interested and has the time to review them – please share with us?!

      I’m guessing Amandarambler will be counting duffy appearances! lol.
      BJo will be looking for Jill appearances.
      I’m going to continue looking for the Hollywood sign!
      and Cindy is going to be playing her drinking game?! [Did I guess right Cindy?!]

      Who is on fashion police patrol as we watch??!!!
      can we have a coincidence alarm while we are at it?! You know.. like whenever Amanda is in the middle of a case but it has nothing to do with her working for he agency?!
      What will you be looking out for as we go everyone? 🙂

  7. If it’s okay I’d rather not walk through the episodes in order – or in a revised order at this stage. I prefer the idea of doing a random episode, and going with TLCE at Christmas.. with the aim of walking through the whole show again in order once season 4 is finished (and I can then expand on the teeny tiny walks through early season 1 episodes!).
    I’ll happily go with the general consensus here as I know I won’t be able to participate as much as others..

    For the rewalk – the links are all in the upper menu. If anyone has trouble finding a link – you can ask someone to share it with you in comments of this post.

    I like the idea of marking a comment as being part of a re-walk!

    I too am thinking a new episode a month works.. And starting TLCE on December 1st makes sense..
    If we are settled on the timing.. how about Amandarambler gets the ball rolling and chooses the first episode to walk through?
    Then, after walking through TLCE in December – Amandarambler can maybe nominate the next person to choose the next episode? [like tag you’re it!]
    Best keep it simple I think!

  9. Hi eveveryone, just rediscover smk this summer and found JWWM at the same time. Living in a small french canadian town where nobody spoke english back in the 80’s, i had no one to talk about the show. Being very late to the party, i didn’t make any comments, but i loved reading them. Looking forward re-walking with you all.

  10. So loving everyone’s feedback and looking forward to more as we brainstorm to devise a plan! 😊😊😊😊

    Having come off just finishing up the series in JWWM revised order, I find so much value in the line of thinking of going through that together, but just wondering – is the right time to do so? If so, wonderful! If not, ok too! I’m up for anything! Just wanting a fun and not stressful or pressured way to keep the JWWM community connected. 😁

    If we did a series revised order, even at one episode a week (which may not be feasible for some, while others may be able to do more) it would be the end of 2019 or more likely into 2020 before we catch up to Nightcrawler. Which may be fine, if everyone’s up for that and if that’s a help to Iwsod towards her publishing those season 4 posts?

    If waiting until series end to start back at the beginning and re-visit posts ep by ep in revised order is better for Iwsod and everyone, fine.
    But perhaps we could try something similar but flexible. So, if you want to start now with TFT and watch through revised order at a pace of say, four eps a month, go! But if that’s an unrealistic option for you, perhaps we could all agree to definitely meet back at one particular episode a month on JWWM to walk through it’s posts and comments collectively over a particular week? So for example, if we began next week through mid-December, you could watch TFT, TGTN, ACM Kid, and Magic Bus. But if you only want to commit to one ep during that time, what if we all meet at Magic Bus by the end of December 8? Then anyone who wanted to keep a ep/week pace could proceed with the next 4 eps (ITCK, SD, Gift Horse, SAAB), but everyone meeting back at SAAB by the end of the first week of Jan? (Sadly, this plan wouldn’t fit TLCE in December, though. But Jan! Close! And watching SAAB is it’s own gift that keeps on giving, wouldn’t you say?😉)

    Does that make sense? If we want to stick with a revised order ep by ep plan, we probably need to have that order easily accessible as we start.

    Also, clagjanet, I like your idea of having some way to notate that we are commenting during the re-walk (like a hashtag or something). Any other thoughts on that?

    Now if Iwsod will be ready with Nightcrawler sooner, perhaps we should just go with a lighter plan, like an ep every two weeks, randomly selected or just skipping through the series (like a different episode every two weeks for a few months, selected from three or four episodes per season to get up to Nightcrawler).

    That was really long. Sorry. Was trying to keep it simple. But sometimes I can get a bit “enthused”…😂

    • Hi there:

      Would be all in to start the walk again from the beginning. Maybe two episodes per month, with each walk on a designated day of the week.

      So excited to be a part of this as I too am late to the party!

      Thanks so much for getting this together!

    • LOL, I am running on very little sleep and not enough caffeine so this is too complicated for my poor little brain. I think having an episode every two weeks and you can jump in or not is something I can handle. Besides the way the universe interferes with my life, I would get hit by a meteor and miss the monthly check in.

  11. I know one of the Facebook groups does Viewing Parties and try to comment in real time,but that’s not going to happen when we are scattered all around the globe in such different time zones. Perhaps we could treat like a book club? Try and watch the episode every second Sunday and then discuss from Tuesday on, so that everyone’s had a chance to see it?

    And are we we just adding onto the existing blog posts for each episode? Maybe add #2018rewatch to the newest comments so people can search them easily?

    • I’ll reply to myself here to say that I am happy selecting the episodes at random, or maybe highlighting a few from each season that seem pivotal or that stood out to me differently upon my recent binge series watch in revised order. Or we can decide of a theme of some sort – could be a funny or a serious theme. Thoughts?

      I do like TLCE during December. Maybe we could sneak one or even two more in before that. Next week is Veteran’s Day here in the states, so maybe we could watch one related to that connected more to the military (A Relative Situation? Artful Dodger (ha!)?)….too bad there’s not really any Thanksgivingy episodes.

    So, in light of this…
    An FYI to any new commenters
    Your first comment will always go into moderation for approval before it is published. This is a precaution to keep JWWM spam free and full of just fun stuff!
    If you are commenting for the first time – be sure to write a comment that tells myself or one of the moderators that you are a real person who has a real love for SMK and it’s characters. If you have a real love for it- then this should be easy 🙂

    Please be mindful of spoilers
    As we enjoy the show together – please try not to jump ahead of where the walk is currently up to (the end of episode ‘It’s in the Water’). I want to walk through upcoming episodes with fresh eyes. I think there are other readers who are doing the same.. I know it’s not easy – and I appreciate your patience!
    Let’s encourage each other to be strong and not jump ahead.
    Thanks guys! 🙂
