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.
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.
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… 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).
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.
Hi Everyone, Happy 2018! I hope you are all well! I can’t believe it’s February already!
It’s time for the walk to continue on again – and we’ll pick up right where we left off with post 5/13 of No Thanks for the Memory on 19 February.
Sorry for the delays! I’m fine.. and the Brownie is still fine
I have always said that JWWM will finish walking through the whole show. I won’t stop until we see this through!!! It will happen however it may happen rather slowly! Real life commitments are getting in the way, but I’ll do what I can to continue on. I’m thinking the number of posts on an episode and level of detail is going to be less for most season 4 episodes.. Well, except for a few big episodes I cannot wait to get to!!
Thanks again to everyone involved here who help keep the walk happening!
A Call for Authors
I can see 2018 is going to be a very busy year for me, I thought I’d throw this out there – if anyone thinks they would have loads of fun writing up a season 4 episode – And you would like a turn wearing the crazy furry author hat – Let me know!
You would be very welcome –and I’m sure JWWM readers would love to see a new voice have a go if the mood strikes someone! I confess it is loads of fun, it’s just the time pressures that are getting in the way of me doing it as much as I would like… so if you’ve got some time up your sleeve, and a craving for giving writing up an episode a go (you can do it however you like and don’t have to do it anything like how I do it) – then email me and we can talk about how that could work. [My email address is in the side bar]. No pressure! SMK is for FUN!!!!
lol anyone want to guess how many episodes we’ll get through by the end of 2018?! It would be fun if we got to Santa’s new bag at Christmas.. Here’s hoping you are all well – and you are able to stop by from time to time and indulge your love for this little show and this couple with us all!!! So who is still around these days?
Hi all! Have we all recovered sufficiently from that swoony goodness that closed out the Stemwinder 2 parter??!!!
Just in case.. here ya go: Breathe deeply smk fans!!!
We’ve just finished walking through Unfinished Business and then the two Stemwinder episodes.. The original airing order had the two Stemwinders first, and then Unfinished Business. Now we’ve finished walking through these first three episodes of season 4 – what do you think? which order do you prefer? and why?
To get the discussion started.. for anyone who is interested.. I’ll share my opinion… but – it’s just an opinion! I’m no authority here.. we can think what we like!
I prefer the I love yous in Stemwinder come after Unfinished Business.
The My Amanda moment while Lee is drugged, and Amanda wanting to ask a question but stopping herself?
I think she would have not been tempted to probe after Stemwinders. She’s secure, has heard the words.. and is content with the way things are..
Also the impact of ‘my Amanda’ is diminished when he has already said he loves her!
I also like the idea that Lee lets down those walls and shares this very person aspect of himself with Amanda in Unfinished Business, before he has said the words ‘I love you’ I don’t know why just seems more powerful – maybe that it screams he loves her.. but he hasn’t said the words yet. And it screams how much trust they have in each other that they can conduct themselves as they do in Unfinished Business but the words haven’t been spoken yet. Know what I mean?
I think either order can work at this point, I just share my preference.. but – maybe there is a reason why a certain order must be the way it is??
Do you think Billy would be so quick to disregard Lee in UB after what happened in Stemwinder?
Okay all.. what do you think? Reasons for and against changing the original airing order are very welcome!!!
