    Have a Conscience
    This is the spoiler-free discussion post for episode 513, Have a Conscience. Sorry I didn't post last week. Also, I have to admit this is not one of my favorite episodes, plus I'm tired, so I apologize if this post is a little skimpy.

    Betrayal
    Okay, I know there's lots going on on LJ tonight, but at least this account was created before they got rid of Basic accounts, right?

    This is the spoiler-free discussion post for episode 512, Betrayal.

    First, again and always, questions and items for discussion.Collapse )

    Rumors of my (and this community's) demise have been greatly exaggerated! Or something.

    Anyway, y'all, first I spilled tea on my computer (again) and had to wait for it to return to me, and then I had various RL work and health related issues (if anyone ever asks you if you want a frozen shoulder? You don't), and, well, the truth is I didn't want to post about the next episode (512, Betrayal) until I was really in good shape for it, because, without being spoilery for any who haven't seen it, well, it's an awfully important episode in some ways. And I barely had the time and energy to breathe the last couple months, so. Sorry, guys.

    But I'm on spring break this week, and I promise I will post this week. Probably tomorrow night, because in some ways Wednesday nights will probably work best for my schedule this semester, or what's left of it.

    Again, I apologize for how long I've been away.

    God, I Miss This Page
    Any hope of resuming our Homicide-watching habit? Are you still out there, umbo ...?

    I am passing on greetings from umbo She sends her regrets that she can't post today, or anytime in the next little while. A large dose of RL obligation and a computer that must be sent off for repairs will be keeping her away for the next little while. She will return when her computer comes back.

    The Documentary
    I didn't even realize until this afternoon that I had neglected to include Monday in the poll I posted, and here I am posting this week's discussion post, finally, on a Monday. I do apologize to those who voted for Sunday, as I ended up being stuck doing a lot of grading last night and couldn't post then.

    In any case, this is the spoiler-free discussion post for episode 511, The Documentary. This is also one of the few episodes we have a commentary track for, so feel free to comment on that as well!

    Hey all, just a pointer to a few posts you might have missed, what with me mostly posting on Friday nights.

    First, there's the post on Blood Wedding, then there's Control, and there's also The True Test, otherwise known as the Evil Elijah Wood episode (oops, I guess that's a spoiler ;-)).

    I also posted a poll to get some feedback on when I should post stuff. I posted it on Friday, but since I only got one vote on Friday night, I did not post about the next episode then. As I said in that post, I will be too busy this week to post at all, unfortunately, but please do let me know how things are working.

    The next episode up is episode 511, The Documentary. It's a pretty big episode, I would think. Lately I've only been able to post on Friday nights, because I've been so busy with work. I could possibly post about this episode tonight, or I could try to post either tomorrow or Sunday night, but I won't be able to post again after that until the week of Thanksgiving, probably, because next week is even busier than usual for me.

    Posting on Fridays hasn't gotten as many comments as posting on other days has in the past. I was curious if people were even seeing the posts, or if they had an opinion. Hence, a poll!

    I would prefer if you posted for episode 511, The Documentary:

    Tonight
    0(0.0%)
    Tomorrow night
    0(0.0%)
    Sunday night
    3(75.0%)
    Tuesday before Thanksgiving (the 20th)
    0(0.0%)
    Wednesday before Thanksgiving (the 21st)
    0(0.0%)
    Friday after Thanksgiving (the 23rd)
    1(25.0%)

    In general, I'd like you to post on (check all days that you like):

    Mondays
    0(0.0%)
    Tuesdays
    0(0.0%)
    Wednesdays
    0(0.0%)
    Thursdays
    0(0.0%)
    Fridays
    2(40.0%)
    Saturdays
    0(0.0%)
    Sundays
    1(20.0%)
    Ticky!
    0(0.0%)
    Your ticky boxes can't encompass my wisdom, so I have commented
    0(0.0%)

    Please do not post on:

    Mondays
    1(20.0%)
    Tuesdays
    0(0.0%)
    Wednesdays
    0(0.0%)
    Thursdays
    0(0.0%)
    Fridays
    1(20.0%)
    Saturdays
    0(0.0%)
    Sundays
    0(0.0%)
    Ticky ticky!
    1(20.0%)
    Your ticky boxes can't encompoass my wisdom, so I have commented
    0(0.0%)

    While we're talking, let's discuss how often we're doing a new episode.

    Let's keep watching a new episode a week, where possible.
    5(83.3%)
    Every week is a bit much--how about every other week?
    1(16.7%)
    Once a month would be great
    0(0.0%)
    Your radio buttons oppress me, so I have commented
    0(0.0%)


    I probably will never be able to post the night before a day-shift clinical, no matter what, which is usually Tuesday night, but I can try to post on nights other than Fridays if that really makes a difference for folks. What say you?

    The True Test
    This is the spoiler-free discussion post for episode 508, The True Test. Once again, sorry to be late--I'm still trying to work out the best times for doing these posts with my new schedule, and I knew I was going to need a lot of concentration and energy for this episode, because it is, IMO, a real gem. It's difficult to talk about without spoilers, though, so if someone wants to do a spoiler post, that would be awesome.

    Of course, this has me reviewing the episode on a Friday night, and posting the review at 10 pm Central time, which has a certain beauty to it ;-).

    First, as always, questions and items for discussion.Collapse )

    Just a reminder that I'm going out of town wicked early tomorrow morning, so there will be no episode post this week. If any of you have spoiler posts you've been itching to post, or want to go back and discuss an earlier episode you've only recently seen, go for it.

    See y'all next week!

    M.E., Myself, and I
    This is the spoiler-free discussion post for episode 505, M.E., Myself, and I. Please note that I am on cold medications, so I can't vouch for the accuracy of any of this ;-). Also, I will be out of town next week at a conference, so I won't be posting for episode 506 until the week after.

    Sorry this is out of order, but again, I kind of thought better late than never. Please feel free to delete or move (if that's possible), though, if it's too much out of place.

    Prison Riot
    Sorry for the week off--have started new semester and completely new schedule. There might be some continued adjustments as I figure out the best day(s) to post.

    This is the spoiler-free discussion post for episode 503, Prison Riot.

    First, as always, questions and items for discussion.Collapse )

    Second, quotes.Collapse )

    This is a pretty Bayliss-heavy episode, I think, and it's also an episode that would be interesting to discuss in light of future events. Anyone want to start a spoiler post?

    Last Chance for Homicide Megaset
    Amazon.com is now sold out of the set; the set is now out-of-print so if you still want to buy it, you'll have to find a retailer that still has it in stock (they won't be able to order any more).

    The A&E Store has a great deal right now, the set is just $89.98: Homicide DVD Megaset.

    I updated my previous post, but figured I should mention this where folks who read regularly would actually see it.

    [Full disclosure: I get a few bucks for everyone who buys via that link. But I'd mention this anyway 'cuz it's such a good deal and I've bought stuff from them before.]

    Again, I'm not sure when I'm going to be posting next week's episode, as my schedule is changing completely with the new semester, and changing to mostly evening classes. I may try a few different nights before I figure out the best one, so I appreciate your patience.
