If you are interested in finding out about being a guest moderator, let me know with the number and name of the episode. Just look at the icon, and follow Willow's example of volunteering! /subtle

Another question about the upcoming schedule for you all: not counting this week we've been on a two-ep-a-week discussion schedule. How is that working for everyone? Is one a week better? Or is two a good amount?

Poop! I was gonna offer to guest-mod bad eggs! I could take "Passion" though. And once a week would work better for me. Caza and I were discussing that we love this comm, but we never seem to have time to collect our thoughts before another ep is up. But we could just learn to think faster, I 'spose.

Everybody, it seems, loves "Bad Eggs". It's the Gorch Bros., isn't it?
Sue: XANDER Xandercrazydiamondsue on May 25th, 2006 10:15 pm (UTC)
Hahahaha! Nope - for me it's this:

Xander: Well, you know, it's the whole 'sex leads to responsibility'
thing, which I personally don't get. You gotta take care of the egg.
It's a baby. You gotta keep it safe and teach it Christian values.

Willow: My egg is Jewish.

Xander: Then teach it that Dreidel song.

I adore the whole classroom scene with Xander and Cordelia. *lol*
Mr. Whitmore: S-E-X. Sex. (faces the class) The sex drive in the human
animal is intense. How many of us have lost countless productive hours
plagued by unwanted sexual thoughts and feelings?

Xander: Yes! (raises his hand and nods) Mm-hm.

Willow gives him a concerned look.

Mr. Whitmore: That was a rhetorical question, Mr. Harris, not a poll.

Several students giggle. Xander lowers his hand.

But what shall I say I love ALL the early episodes for something special...or better all.lol

Oh! Well, eesh, I had NO IDEA that episode would be the most popular!

If it's still available, I'll ask/throw it into the mix again.

But I'd love if you want to do "Passion" -- it's such a fascinating episode.

I hear you on the too-quick turnover. I wonder a little if it wouldn't be good to go on a once-a-week schedule, with a mid-week check in reminding people what threads are developping. I'd really like people to feel they have room to discuss things at length, and room to have all kinds of reactions, really.
