I think the Navarone watchalong went really well, and now I'm planning the next watchalong. Everyone is invited! Please post in this thread if you want to participate, I want to have a fair idea how many will join in by the time I set the date. If you have opinions on the weekday and time of day you'll be able to participate. ๐Ÿšกโ›ฐ๏ธ๐ŸŽฅ

    Pending date and availability, I'm interested. When an actual day and time for this starts to gel, I'll have a better idea if I can truly make it work or not.

    I'm definitely keen for a Where Eagles Dare watchalong. Any day of the week works for me generally, although ideally I'd ask if we could start the film earlier than we did with Navarone.

  • Number24Number24 NorwayPosts: 18,127MI6 Agent

    Yes, I'm definitivly considering moving the start time back from 9 to 8 GMT. I ask more people to post their opinion on this.

    ๐Ÿ˜€ I'm in!

    IF we do this, I'd love to do another chat session afterwards like we did for several of the Bond films. Those were great fun.

    For this watchalong to happen we need more than three possible participators. Feel free to post if you're interested ๐Ÿ˜Š

    Despite only watching it again a couple of months ago, I'm in ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Great!

    As much as I would love to join in the WED watchalong the timing is going to be wrong, but have fun with one of my very favourite movies.

    Yeah, well, sometimes nothin' can be a real cool hand.
  • Number24Number24 NorwayPosts: 18,127MI6 Agent

    Given where you are in the world I completely understand. Nice of you to post, though.

  • Number24Number24 NorwayPosts: 18,127MI6 Agent

    Once again I urge members to show their interest in a WED watchalong. We are months away from the next Bond film and many of us are also months away from the corona restrictions are lifted. We need fun, we need social interaction and "a sweet distraction for an hour or two", and a watchalong is a safe way to do this. But I won't set a date and time before I know there is a handful of members who want to take part. Please post below if you're interested ๐Ÿ˜Š

  • Number24Number24 NorwayPosts: 18,127MI6 Agent

    We're still just four people. Even though it can work, I'd like at least a couple more members to join.

  • Shady TreeShady Tree London, UKPosts: 2,309MI6 Agent

    I could join in but only if it was one evening during the coming week, as after that I'm busy for the rest of the month.

    Critics and material I don't need. I haven't changed my act in 50 years.

    That could prove difficult because I need the DVD from a particular library (I live in the late 1990s). That particular small town has an outbreak of Covid-19 right now and I just did my weekly shopping trip. I'll see if I can find a solution.

  • Shady TreeShady Tree London, UKPosts: 2,309MI6 Agent

    No worries, N24. Please don't go, on my account, to any inconvenient lengths to bring this forward sooner than would really suit you.

  • Number24Number24 NorwayPosts: 18,127MI6 Agent

    I've asked my nearest library to get the DVD from the other library next week. It's no hazzle. Someone drives between the libraries every week with books etc., so it's purely routine for them. Of course the DVD may be on loan or there may be other problems. If it works we can have the watchalong on Saturday or Sunday next week. Does that sound all right for the rest of you?

  • Golrush007Golrush007 South AfricaPosts: 3,098Quartermasters

    No problem for me. Currently I could do the watchalong on any day in the next while

  • BarbelBarbel ScotlandPosts: 31,542Chief of Staff

    Fine by me.

    Golrush007, the chats were set up by Higgins. I have no idea how to do this.

    I'll know by Friday evening if there will be a WED watchalong soon. If it happens I plan on starting the watchalong on Sunday 18th of April (next Sunday) at 8.00 GMT. If this is a problem the day and time can be changed.

  • Number24Number24 NorwayPosts: 18,127MI6 Agent

    I now have a copy of WED!

    This means there will be a watchalong on Sunday if the members who's already shown interest (and hopefully more) are able to participate then.

    Please give feedback ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

  • BarbelBarbel ScotlandPosts: 31,542Chief of Staff

    PS Happy Birthday, Golrush007.

  • Number24Number24 NorwayPosts: 18,127MI6 Agent

    Yes, happy birthday ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

  • Number24Number24 NorwayPosts: 18,127MI6 Agent

    One more confirmation and it's official.

    I'm sorry not to be able to make it as I'll be back to work by tomorrow evening. Have fun, though!

    I hope you enjoyed your birthday Golrush007!

  • Number24Number24 NorwayPosts: 18,127MI6 Agent

    I'm sorry, but since only three members have comitted to the watchalong I have decided to call it off for now. Mind you, the plan is still to have a watchalong. This thread stays open and we'll try to find a new date. Please post and let us know when a watchalong works for you. Is it on Thursdays, is after nine GMT, is it the last week of April etc.? Let's make this work! ๐Ÿ‘

  • BarbelBarbel ScotlandPosts: 31,542Chief of Staff

    Let me know, and I'm almost certain to be there.

  • GymkataGymkata Minnesota, USAPosts: 3,358MI6 Agent

    Hey there:

    Terribly sorry. I DID indeed get sick from the second vaccine shot and was pretty much on my butt/sleeping all day. I'm feeling better now but yeah, there was no way I was doing this today.
