Announcing Now Playing (NMN #4)
Or, my new part time job watching amazing TV.
Does anyone else miss appointment television? Like, we all showed up on Wednesday night and watched LOST.
I miss that.
I miss waiting a week for the next episode. I miss talking about it with other people.
I definitely miss Television Without Pity.
So, I’m creating a new weekly lineup for myself.
I tried this before, but it was missing the community element. I want to bring it back.
I’m thinking daily watch threads, maybe even live watch parties for major episodes.
You don’t have to watch the whole lineup. Just need to share some biscuits with me and Ted Lasso? Cool. Into the hard sci-fi? We’re doing that too.
Since it’s an experiment, I started with shorter shows—at worst, I’ve only committed myself to one year of this.
But if it goes well?
I’m looking to rotate shows into the lineup as needed. (And the list is long, friends.)
I also kept most of the week to the same two streamers—Hulu and Netflix, with a couple of exceptions. That way, you don’t have to subscribe to all the streaming platforms to play.
So, here’s how you play.
Each day’s post will go live at 9am ET.
Watch whenever you want, and I’ll be in and out of replies all week.
Watch parties will be scheduled a few weeks in advance on the NMN Calendar (for members only). I’m starting with season/series finales, but I’m willing to hear arguments for special episodes along the way.
We start MONDAY, FEBRUARY 5TH with Ted Lasso!!!
You can subscribe to the calendar here.
Participation in both the Daily Threads and the Watch Parties are for PAID SUBSCRIBERS ONLY. We’d love to have you.
