Season 3 is available today. Is anyone interested? If so, any suggestions on how to strike a binge-savor balance with the episode threads?

We can at least talk about the first episode today, no?

I hope we can spread the threads out to at most one a day. There's 13 episodes this season, and not all of us want to binge watch and discuss.

Yeah, I wasn't sure how many people were interested in the first place and I didn't want to flood FanFare with a bunch of posts if no one wanted to talk about it. At The Fall FanFare Talk post, it ended up being one binge watch post but The Fall only has 6 episodes per season. For Orange is the New Black, it kind of looks like 1-2 posts a day scattered throughout the week until someone threw up 7 episode posts in a row.

I wouldn't mind a catch-all, spoilery binge watch post but it might just end up being very liveblog chatty and not at all useful? Maybe if it was presented as a "thoughts about the entire season" instead of "aaahhhh Frank don't do that"?

The thing that worries me about bingewatching this is that all the posts will run together in my head and I'll inadvertently mention something spoilery in a thread. I would suggest that each episode post includes a robust synopsis.

We are watching one ep a day (which is a compromise between the bingewatcher BF and non-bingewatcher me), so spacing them out a couple days between would be fine.

I bet they don't get into issues about whether he uses the correct email account... (Anti-Hillary factions cause de jure - historical note)
