    We blame you and only you. The bomb is in the mail ๐Ÿคช


    No, the forum is full of people who for some reason weren't up for a watchalong. No reason to feel any guilt and your reason not to join us sounds very acceptable. There will be WED watchalong and we very much want you there when it happens.

    Would love to, but would need to track a copy, as I don't own one and the film isn't available at the moment on the streaming platforms I use. Will keep around just in case.

    Good luck in your search for a copy. Does your library have DVDs for loaning or can they get you WED on DVD from other libraries?

    I have an idea: This Saturday is the final of the European Song Contest. Many enjoy this, but ESC isn't for everyone. Is there an interest out there for a WED watchalong that night as an alternative?

    If you are interested, please let me know. The watchalong won't happen without some support. Everyone is invited ๐Ÿ˜€

    I'm in.

  • GymkataGymkata Minnesota, USAPosts: 3,099MI6 Agent

    I'm not available this Saturday, sorry.

    I'd have to put myself down as a 'maybe'. I have to be up and running very early on Sunday morning so a late night watching Where Eagles Dare might be a bit much for me. But I'd like to try and join if the watchalong goes ahead.

  • Number24Number24 NorwayPosts: 17,766MI6 Agent

    Sadly we need at least a couple more participate to go forward, and by this time we can't make that work. Sorry.

    We'll try again later! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

    If we're having a WED watchalong this summer it has to be the weekend from the 25. - 27. this June or 2. - 4. of July. At least if we do it on a weekend and it's arranged by me. The reason is visit from me and to me.

    New members joining in on the watchalong are very much welcome, but I urge you to let us know so it won't be just Barbel and me participateing. ๐Ÿ˜„

    Watchalongs are very friendly and fun, not to mention 100% corona safe. I'm sure it's a good way for new members/lurkers to get to know a few of the forum regulars. You don't even have to like Where Eagles Dare as long as you have opinions about it and you' re ready for some friendly fun. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Whoever you are, let us know if you're interested and available and what dates are best for you. I'm open to having the watchalong on a weekend if that's what people want.

  • Golrush007Golrush007 South AfricaPosts: 2,951Quartermasters

    I'm keen and I don't have a preference for any particular date. As far as I know at this point, I'd be available for any of the dates suggested.

  • GymkataGymkata Minnesota, USAPosts: 3,099MI6 Agent

    Weekends are out for me, sorry. Considering the time zone difference, I'd have to watch them in the afternoon and that's simply not viable on Saturdays or Sundays for me.

    In general, my easiest days to participate now will be on Fridays. If you watch a movie on Friday evening, that'd be my afternoon. With very few exceptions, my Friday afternoons have been really, really light at work to the point that I could probably participate for a few hours.

    Obviously I'm in, and timing isn't critical.

    Friday are fine by me. How about you, Barbel and Goldrush007?

  • Number24Number24 NorwayPosts: 17,766MI6 Agent

    If we are going for arranging the watchalong in June or July it's the 25. of June or July the 2. that works for me. Possibly the 9. too, but I doubt it.

    Please post your opinions, but obviously we are hoping for more people to join and it's too early to lock it down to Fridays.

  • BarbelBarbel ScotlandPosts: 31,077Chief of Staff

    Fridays are fine, but so are most days and times.

  • Number24Number24 NorwayPosts: 17,766MI6 Agent

    Good. And it turns out July 9th will most likely also work for me.

  • GymkataGymkata Minnesota, USAPosts: 3,099MI6 Agent

    I think July 9th works for me too. A lot of my coworkers are off that week (for Independence Day) so it should be a fairly light week, especially on Friday. Pencil me in.

    I think we should wait a few days before we settle on a date. It's great that we have enough people to do it, but ideally we get even more. Agreed?

  • Golrush007Golrush007 South AfricaPosts: 2,951Quartermasters

    9 July sounds fine to me too.

    This is how I see it:

    There will definitely be a watchalong in a few weeks. We already have enough people onboard to have one. But I hesitate to decide on Friday the 9th this early because there are potential watchalongers (did I just invent that word?) who may be able to take part in the following weeks, but not on the 9th.

    On the other hand I don't think I can promote the watchalong more agressively (promitional threads in other sub-forums and targeted E-mails) until we have a time and a date. I need to do that at least a week before the watchalong, ideally two. I suggest we decide the date in the Sunday. My guess is that it there's well more than 50% chance that it will happen on the 9th, so we can still talk about time of day and other details. Do you agree?

    But of course.
