Ok, we certainly need to talk about this, right?
It’s happening after Firefly. (Well, first we have to have a stupendous liveblog of Serenity, so after that. Which…holy shit, that is so soon.) I have been saying it on Twitter and Tumblr in bits and pieces, but you deserve a full announcement AND I need some help from all you TARDIS-loving fans.
Here is how Mark Watches Doctor Who is going to go down:
- For the sake of availability, I am starting with the NINTH DOCTOR, which is the beginning of the revival of the series. I AM 100% AWARE THAT THERE ARE 8,000 YEARS OF THE SHOW BEFORE THIS.
- Because I am interested in past seasons and because I am also hoping some of the newer fans can watch older episodes, WE WILL BE WATCHING/REVIEWING OLDER EPISODES OF THE SHOW.
- I have not yet figured out the process, but I would like to watch one “older” episode per week, chosen by the community via a voting/nomination process.
That’s where you guys come in. This site is WordPress-based. I am interested in any sort of plugins that can handle voting, nomination, or polling. RECOMMEND AWAY. What do you think will work best?
Expanding on that, what’s the most efficient way for us to “nominate” episodes? Should I just have a free-for-all post where people suggest the name of the episode I should watch, and then I create a poll for the top 10 or something? I’m worried about the masses overwhelming me and other suggesters as well, especially if there’s a particularly amazing episode that not many people have seen.)
Anyway, there’s that. This is really happening and VERY VERY VERY SOON. I imagine we’ll do the liveblog for Serenity next weekend and I’ll start Doctor Who right after that! OH MY GOD THAT IS SO SOON.
Discuss! AND DON’T FUCKING SPOIL ME ABOUT ANYTHING REGARDING THIS SHOW BECAUSE I LITERALLY KNOW LIKE 0.000001% ABOUT IT.
