So thinking about starting a new thread/feature as an offshoot of watch and learn. This would be a bit different than watch and learn as it is going to focus on shows where the point is not the entertainment value so much as the meaning behind the show. Shows that have something to say and don't have a problem being blatant about it. Now by blatant I don't mean coming out and saying the point directly. Symbolism, theme all that English stuff is what I go for, but it will be obvious that all that stuff is there and it will make no apologies for having it. (Utena is a good example of what I mean, I find the show entertaining but entertainment was never the main thing the show was going for). To ease ourselves into this I thought we may start with steins gate. Doesn't really fit the above completely as I do think it was meant to entertain but it can definitely be a starting off point for some rather deep discussions. Idea would be to do one or two episodes of what ever show we are doing a week, and discuss them. The discussions will hopefully get incredibly deep. I want people throwing around philosophies, and philosopher names....lets get metaphysical up in this piece (why does that sound like a really bad rap song...?). My questions to you are:
1. Any interest? I don't want to be talking just to myself.....(though I do that..)
2. Should I start with steins gate from the beginning or pick up where watch and learn left off
3. Anyone give me some tips on setting up features...how do I manipulate things on the site to make stuff I post look professional like the watch and learns?
4. What other shows do people want me to do? I was thinking about doing noein (another great time travel show), texnolyze, now and then here and there, Hanibai Renmei, and probably utena.
What say you?
