Member's Corner:
(Please comment with any posts I may have missed and I'll add them in the list. I scan the post contents, title and tags - I don't necessarily click into anything posted under cuts or know all TV shows, so if I missed anything it was unintentional.
Also, FYI - This may become a "here's 3-4 random links from members" sort of thing if we grow, I'll see how next week goes. Anyone can scan the community members public posts HERE

[personal profile] delacourtings posted a wonderful TV Primer here SUPERSTORE PRIMER If you're interested in posting a primer, please do so! Here's a post where I talk All About TV Primers :)

Suggestions and feedback welcome.
Do you know of an active DW television-related comm or have something else for the next bulletin?

ETA: I meant to do this weekly and it's Tuesday and not Wednesday..... whoops. *facepalm
In our last social post, quite a few people mentioned The Expanse (yay!) The new (and exciting!) community for The Expanse, [community profile] rocinante, has allowed me to host a re-watch over there. So if you like show, or if you're thinking of trying it out, come on over!!! First time viewers are welcome.

Episode 1x1. Dulcinea was just posted.

TV Primers

Apr. 29th, 2017 05:23 pm
TV Primers are a great way to generate interest in a show you're watching and/or find fellow fans. Please see topic: primer tag for examples done in the past, although don't feel restricted to any particular format - the format is entirely up to the poster.

Standard rules of the community apply (ie. no bashing, warn/cut for spoilers, etc.)

What's a Primer?
(*stealing Recycling verbage from [personal profile] timetobegin's post.....)
Its an introduction to a show that remains mostly spoiler-free, so people get thinking about watching it. You should include

- The show and basic plot
- The main characters
- Fun things about the show people should know.
- Perhaps where to find the show?

If you're interested in doing a primer, PLEASE DO. Comment here if you wanna let people know which show you're doing (in case someone else decides too as well) And go ahead and post when you're ready.

I hope everyone's having a great weekend! :)
Cut to personal post for Agents of Shield spoilers (up to the latest episode) but no spoilers regarding Powerless.
Wow, over 100 comments on our last post! TV chatter ranging all over the board - I lost count of the number of shows people mentioned, but it was a lot! I've been inspired to try and check out some new things.

Based on some of the feedback in the last post, I'm going to try to compile a somewhat regular round-up of TV things found on DW as well as include some general links that members might find useful or interesting.

Suggestions and feedback welcome.

What are our members talking about?
As I'm typing this, there were 3 posts on the first page talking about TV and likely many more!

*What are your thoughts on including members posts in a round up like this? (unlocked entries only)

Hello! I don't know if it was because DW/LJ was slowing down or if it was the changing television habits, but somehow we drifted away from talking about TV shows in this space.

I'm still here. I still like TV. And I'd still like to talk about shows I'm watching. Based on the increased activity I'm seeing on DW, I don't think I'm alone. (or maybe I am - LOL)
Anyway, I think we should resuscitate this community and start talking. What do you think?

Would anyone out there be willing to help me out with three things? (feel free to browse older entries for ideas)

1) If you where building DW television discussion community, what elements would you include?
2) What sort of posts/activities would inspire you to participate?
3) Do you have any suggestions or ideas for structure or format?

FYI - I want this community to be open forum - meaning just because we develop some structure or have scheduled posts, people are always welcome to come post about any TV show at any time.

And... just so this post isn't all boring business, we should maybe socialize as well, and get this thing started out right. :D

What TV have you been watching?
What genre(s) of TV do you like best?
Link something cool you've seen on tumblr/dw/lj lately!
