2.5 Reptile Boy
2.6 Halloween

2.20 Go Fish
2.21 Becoming (Part I)
2.22 Becoming (Part 2)

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?
tx_cronopiotx_cronopio on May 25th, 2006 08:19 pm (UTC)
I'd prefer one a week, but I'm in a superbusy time right now...I'll defer to the group consensus, of course!

Good to know -- thanks for weighing in! The discussion of most of s1, before the comm went on hiatus, was once a week, and it seemed to work okay at the time. We'll see what sounds feasible/attractive for everyone.
zandra_x on May 25th, 2006 08:24 pm (UTC)
The schedule works for me, but then I don't have much else on my plate. Participation in the comments may pick up a little now that Spike in in the episodes.

I could do a guesting shot, if you like. I'd take "Bad Eggs", cause I like it, though I understand some people don't. And "I Only Have Eyes for You", too, again, if you like.
your royal pie-ness: angelus/xanderentrenous88 on May 25th, 2006 08:30 pm (UTC)
Want to take "I Only Have Eyes For You"? That would be excellent.

I think I might have someone for Bad Eggs, but I have to double-check with them.

I'll either email or post guidelines/suggestions about coming up with topic and formatting for the episode discussion to all the guest-mods, so I'll be sure to put you on the list or filter for that.
zandra_x on May 25th, 2006 08:35 pm (UTC)
OK, "I Only Have Eyes for You" it is.

Oh god, your icon makes me want to watch "Killed By Death" a epi I don't care too much about, but THAT scene ::sigh::.
your royal pie-ness: angelus/xanderentrenous88 on May 25th, 2006 08:38 pm (UTC)
Yay! And yes, it's such a great scene.
tx_cronopiotx_cronopio on May 25th, 2006 08:24 pm (UTC)
I'd go for guest mod for 2.8, 2.11, or 2.12--- with advance notice :) I have not a clue how to do this :)
your royal pie-ness: giles iconentrenous88 on May 25th, 2006 08:31 pm (UTC)
How about 2.8 The Dark Age?

I'm going to email or post guidelines and suggestions about structuring discussion and coming up with topics for all the guest mods. So I'll definitely include you on that. And of course I'd be happy to answer questions or offer a sounding board for possible discussion points.
tx_cronopiotx_cronopio on May 25th, 2006 08:33 pm (UTC)
You got it! But that's such a good one, are you sure you want to trust it to a tyro? ) (I was more than willing to take Bad Eggs...)
your royal pie-ness: Entre G/Xentrenous88 on May 25th, 2006 08:35 pm (UTC)
Hee! It is a good one, and I'm sure it'll be fine.

I may already have a taker for "Bad Eggs" -- when I was mentioning the idea of guest-mods, someone offered to do that episode. I'm just going to check with her to see if she still wants it, but if not, and you're still interested, I can let you know if that's on offer.
your royal pie-nessentrenous88 on May 26th, 2006 02:25 am (UTC)
I just realized I should have asked -- did you want to do more than one? If you like I can put you down for 2.11 (Ted) as well. If not, no worries.

Everybody, it seems, loves "Bad Eggs". It's the Gorch Bros., isn't it?

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

your royal pie-ness: angel nightentrenous88 on May 26th, 2006 01:33 am (UTC)
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.
buffysvampirebuffysvampire on May 27th, 2006 05:35 am (UTC)
Yeah, seeing forward to all the spike-y episodes.
If you like to and don't mind I would like to guest- moderating
one of the episodes:

reptile boy or lie to me.
your royal pie-ness: spike iconentrenous88 on May 29th, 2006 11:48 pm (UTC)
Great! I'll put you down for "Reptile Boy". Thanks very much for volunteering.
buffysvampirebuffysvampire on May 29th, 2006 11:52 pm (UTC)
zandra_x on June 1st, 2006 09:13 pm (UTC)
I'll take "Lie to Me" if you like.
your royal pie-ness: XanderEntre (xmirax)entrenous88 on June 1st, 2006 09:18 pm (UTC)
Okay! Still keeping "I Only Have Eyes For You", right? I'll put you down for both for now, but feel free to correct me if that's wrong.
zandra_x on June 1st, 2006 09:32 pm (UTC)
I'll take both ('cause I'm crazy in the head).
your royal pie-nessentrenous88 on June 1st, 2006 09:32 pm (UTC)
Well, yay! You always have such great observations; I'm glad you'll be taking on two episodes.
