Serious Question.

How is everyone going to watch this? In a marathon the moment they're released? Or try and spread them out?

I think part of the reason it tanked to begin with (and why I watched an episode, back when I had TV, and went "meh....don't get the hype") was that the in-jokes and compounding humor are so well tucked in to the big picture that, if you ever tried to watch the show at one episode a week, you'd miss most of what made it funny.

I'll be watching it all together. And then, probably again the next day, even if it's bad.

we should set up an RM fan live posting of the show.

Was this the first comedy without a laugh track?

I feel like it set the stage for comedies like The Office, Parks and Rec, Modern Family, 30 Rock etc.

Scrubs came before AD.

The first season was pretty drama heavy. Some claim the UK Office gets the title. It was definitely the era that broached the concept....AD opted not to lean on the genuine drama or "IT'S IN YOUR FACE" awkwardness of the other two.

Depends on my wife. I would watch all 10 episodes at once, but she probably wouldn't, even though she loves this series as much as me. I'm sure we'll compromise and watch them in one weekend.

Agreed. I thought the show was just ok when it was on TV and never made it past the beginning of season one. Then I downloaded the whole series last year, and my wife and I decided to watch 2-3 episodes a night during the summer. It ended up being maybe my favorite sitcom ever.

I remember eagerly anticipating each new episode before it aired.

What I am experiencing with this show is that the moments where I actually laugh out loud are few and far between, but when I do it's the funniest damn thing on television.

Are we sure all 10 episodes will be posted at once? Seems like they would be much smarter releasing one a week to keep people signed up.

nevermind, i see the news now. that's pretty dumb on their part.

i'll be signing up and watching them all at once or over a month and then canceling.

or stealing the whole series.

I have a feeling they are going to have commercial breaks pretty regular.

really? is that how they do their original series? that would make sense if they are releasing them all upfront. seems like a horrible business decision to me.

id have commercials AND release them once a week.
