How do we want to talk about Fallout?

Is there enough interest to do episode by episode discussions or should we binge the discussion ala Amazon Prime?

I'd prefer ep-by-ep. I'm not going to be able to binge the whole series (I've only got ep 1 under my belt right now) but I'd really like to be able to take part in discussion immediately without being spoiled.

I think the challenge I always find is when posters do post all 8 episodes as a binge to FF - here's all 8 episodes bang bang bang! And then it turns into one big conversation in the season finale because the people who binged the season in a night had a whole season to comment on but don't remember which episode any particular thing came up, and the people who watched an episode or two a night are greeted with barren and empty episode posts, so they just queue up their conversations for the finale as well? I mean, I get it, I prefer the deep conversations we have with traditional releases like Shogun, I don't think we get the same degree of insight and beanplating when the series is released in one big dump.

It's a conundrum either way.

The worst is when the poster only ever creates a post for the first episode before abandoning it? And people end up having season-long conversations in ep1's post because they were interested, but not enough to lift it up and over to a more appropriate post. Either way works and ends up with as much discussion as the community has means for, but there's more follow through with creating 8 useful episode posts, in my experience.

I'm trying to post a new episode thread every other day to keep the show moving, but not too fast.

Up to episode 4 as of today which means Episode 5 on Thursday
