Can't believe I'm doing this, but I so am....  
So I started a rewatch of TVD... and I'm actually going to do posts for all the season 01 episodes that I didn't do posts for (namely every episode except for "Miss Mystic Falls"). I plan on writing them as if I haven't seen the upcoming episodes. I'm writing them like I write current episodes. Jotting my thoughts down and then pulling them out into my longer, flowing posts. I don't expect them to be terribly long, but still, I'm gonna write season 01 episode posts! Woohoo!!!

Right now, I'm just jotting the notes down for all the episodes because I don't want to slow down my rewatch that much and since I've watched season 01 so many times, it's pretty simple. I'll probably just steadily work on the episodes over time. But I'm surprised at how easy it is to write even the notes down as if I don't know what's to come. Hopefully the posts come as easily. :)

I am really surprised at how easy it was to jot down all my notes and just get into writing my thoughts down in my "posting format" as if I didn't know what was to come. Now, I don't know if it will continue so when I'm doing the actual posts, but we'll see. What I'm finding in even just doing the notes though is that I'm already finding some interesting kernels of thoughts that are making me reflect on things now. :)

(PS: I will try and get to your 5.22 thoughts sometime this week.)

I will be reading them anyway.

(No worries, it's not like I didn't take my time)

Phew. Cuz I won't get to them until later than I thought because I really am concentrating more on getting the notes jotted down for the season 01 stuff!

I know some actual TVD content from me this summer!

That is wonderful. I always wanted to hear your thoughts on Season 1.
And I am excited - with the knowledge we have so far - whether things of the first season can be seen in a new light, so to speak.

I am glad you are excited, I'm looking forward to doing this, but....

I'm not going to write them as if I know what is to come. I am writing them as if I know nothing! I am like Jon Snow. (Game of Thrones reference.)

No problem, I will read your posts no matter how you approach it.
But frankly... I think NOT including any knowledge of later seasons might be a challenge :-)

I started to read GoT but never saw the show. Should I ???

Thank you, m'dear.

I thought it might be, but based on jotting my notes down (I've done 6 full episodes of notes now and I'm almost done with "Haunted," it's been surprisingly easy. I've even allowed myself to be wrong about stuff. I've just gone by what I'm seeing on the screen in THAT episode and going with what appears to be happening in THAT episode.

I like the show. I think it's overrated by the critics, and underrated by the haters, but I like it. And I feel the same way about the books.

That is a definite yeah baby! I'm still going through all your previous posts up to date so this will be fun to read.
Arabian: Damon05arabian on August 5th, 2014 11:33 pm (UTC)
I've wanted to do it for years, but honestly wondered if I'd ever do it, but I'm doing it. Wheee!!!!

Gimmie Gimmie I want them now : ) This is amazing. Thank you for doing this!!! I also reread your older posts several times now, sometimes while rewatching the show and I always wondered what you would have written about season 1, so I'm very happy about this : )
Thank you again and looking forward to them.

Hah! Well, I'm up to episode 10 in jotting down notes, and I'm going to be working on them while doing my rewatch so we'll see how it goes. I really, really want to get all the notes jotted down on the episodes I've watched (I rewatched up to 19 already) before I even start putting the posts together, but I'm excited! Thanks. I hope to hear comments and thoughts from peeps!

I have all my notes done, I'm not sure when I'm going to start pulling them together into actual posts, but the notes are done. Phew!
