  • What shows will you be discussing this season?

    Hi all

    It's time for the voting again!

    It has been decided that the 4 most voted for shows will have a section on the main page (yes one more than is currently there).

    Dollhouse will get a section in the Jossverse Section so that's not on the poll. And no other new show will be up for a section until at least midseason when we can see how much discussion it is getting.

    Oh, I will be talking about Heroes, Smallville, Supernatural, Chuck, maybe House, and Weeds. Oh, yes, and Bones.

    I'll probably post very vague thoughts on T:SCC, Prison Break, etc.

              I will definitely try to discuss "Smallville," "Supernatural," and "Heroes" every week. I will, however, post thoughts on "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles," "Lost," "Gossip Girl," and "Weeds" whenever I feel like it.

              By the way: as much as I lovvve the show, "Weeds" maybe shouldn't be on the poll...? It's season is almost over (we've got 4 episodes left, I believe?) so I can't imagine that discussion would be booming during the fall/spring. Just saying.

                    No problemo! I just figured I'd let you know about that in case it does come down to "Weeds" versus another show for it's own section. Again, I love the show but I think one thread is fine. I could be wrong, though. Jenni Lou and BlasterBoy may have a lot more discussion ideas lurking in their minds...I'd definitely get in on that action if they come to fruition.

                      Heather, I love talking about "Weeds" episodes and discussing like "Favorite Character", what you like, what you don't, etc., but I don't think it needs its' own section, especially since it would probably just be us three

                      AHAH!!!!!!!! "Bones" is fourth woohoo!

                        I will be discussing "Smallville," "Heroes," "Supernatural, "Terminator," "Gossip Girl," and "Chuck."

                        And will you also be taking into consideration the amount of discussion they got last season? We've seen it happen almost every year, a show gets voted for and barely discussed. Like, "House" currently has 6 votes, tying it with "Chuck" and "Gossip Girl," both of which were 2 of the 4 most discussed new shows here, and "Smallville," but last season I don't even think it had a thread...

                          My main concern is "Smallville," but I agree with you. I posted this mini-rant in...a special place...? But I figured that I should post it here, too, just for the sake of fighting for SV to get it's own section (even if it's on the Other Shows page).

                          Originally posted by Heather
                          I'm a little worried. "Smallville" NEEDS it's own section for discussion. Even if it's on the Other Shows page, it needs it's own section. One thread won't do it since we do episode discussions and spoilers and stuff like that. And it's been a regularly posted-in section when the show is airing new episodes. Maybe not during the summer but during the fall and spring seasons, it's usually booming (ish). But, right now, it's falling behind in the poll.

                          I mean, seriously, "House?" Nobody here discusses "House" enough to maintain it's own section, as great as the show can be. Same with "Gossip Girl" (though I could see GG getting it's own section on the Other Shows page and taking off - spoilers/speculation, character discussions, episode discussions...). And the "Heroes" forum is rarely used, unfortunately...

                          "Smallville" NEEDS it's own section. Otherwise I'll die.

                          /rant numero dos
                          Though, again, I see "Gossip Girl" and "Heroes" potentially taking off as their own sections. There's most likely going to be a lot of things to discuss concerning both of their coming seasons. But "Smallville" deserves (and requires) it's own section on the Other Shows page - otherwise discussion will be next to impossible without having one thread that's full of spoiler tags, miscellaneous character discussion, episode reviews, merchandise discussion, casting decisions, etc...It'd be a mess.

                          /rant numero tres

                          Sorry for the rambling!

                            While I agree with you, I don't Past discussion shows a lot, but not everything. The lack or increase of votes could be due to someone being more interested than before, or deciding to quit the show. Or maybe you never liked it enough to discuss, but it's gotten so good, you wish to discuss it now.

                            So, I think some thought should be put into past discussion, but not the majority of it.

                              I voted Supernatural and Lost.

                              Not sure if there is much interest in Lost these days. I completely lost (pardon the pun! ) interest in the show after C4 lost the rights to the show to Sky but having started to watch season 3 and 4 this week. I am hooked again.

                              Is there a thread in Other Shows? I thought of starting one but I felt a bit cheeky.

                              While I'm on the subject, anyone who stopped watching, season 4 is amazing! if you get the chance to start watching again do because they've really pulled it out of the bag again!

                              Right time for me to shhh now!

                                Yes I take into account the posts each show had last season with the votes. I know all shows had a shorter season but to compare to the other shows running also short seasons it will work out about the same.

                                  Well, we're not suggesting that it be the deciding factor. We just hope that it does play some role. Mainly with "Smallville," I think. SV has always brought in quite a bit of discussion and it usually is a rather "booming" section when the seasons.

                                  But "House" has never had a great amount of discussion (if any). As a matter of fact, the most discussion that I ever see concerning "House" on this forum is just talk about whether or not people like the show and what they like about it. I don't recall there ever being episode discussions or deep discussions. It's a shame, too, because the show IS really awesome most of the time, but it's just not one of those shows that brings in a lot of talk.

                                  Right, that's totally true. Again, I'm just concerned about "Smallville" getting a section on the Other Shows page since it's always been a consistent section and it can't really be discussed in just one thread - there's far too much to be said (especially with this upcoming season).

                                      LOSTLOSTLOST!!! Bestest show. Bestest!

                                      However, there is a serious lack of Lost love on this board and so I highly doubt it will ever warrant its own section. Even the few threads we have had on the show don't garner too much interest. But I am okay with that. There are Lost-centric forums that are much better for discussing than here at BF. Lost has sooooo many things to discuss and so one really does need to just go to a forum that is solely focused on the show. It's how you get the most information, easter eggs you missed and all those literary/historical references...not to mention great insights and sometimes cool ass theories. So BF is just not a place for Lost, imo. (Btw, I like The Fuselage; I've been frequenting there for years for my Lost discussion needs. )
