📺 Watch-Along 📺 Swamp Thing S1 E02! Friday, June 7, @6pm PST/9pm EST

WARNING: Swamp Thing is rated TV-MA for harsh language, horror themes, and violence.

For those who joined us last week, you’re starting to get a sense of the wild ride you’re in for. Well friends, it’s only going to get spookier from here!

For those who have joined a Watch-Along before, you know the drill. For those who haven’t joined a Watch-Along before, there is no better time than the launch of our new green series!

:white_check_mark:THE DEETS​:white_check_mark:

Who: You, silly!

What: SWAMP THING, S01 E02

Where: Right here on the forums! In this thread! In the comments below! Maybe on your phone! But also, you’ll be watching Swamp Thing on another screen to make it easier. So there, too.

When: Friday, June 2nd @6pm PST/9pm EST.

Why: Because the community that geeks out together, stays together.

How: Great question- read below!

=========================

:point_down:RULES OF THE ROAD​:point_down:

  1. CAN’T WIN IF YOU DON’T PLAY – You must have a subscription to DC Universe to access SWAMP THING.

  2. DUAL-WIELDING – Watch-Alongs are best experienced on two devices; Your phone for comments, and your big screen for viewing.

  3. 2, 1 LET’S JAM – Have your clicking finger on the “play” button and ready for action- we’ll be starting at the strike of the hour.

  4. A WRINKLE IN TIME – If you get lost in the time, you can calculate where the audience is by checking the minute- For example, it’s it’s 6:15pm PST, then we are 15 minutes into the episode.

  5. CRISP, REFRESHING CHROME EXTENSIONS – If you’re having trouble keeping up with the comments (understandably), there are Chrome extensions out there that automatically refresh the page as often as you program it to. Worth a shot!

:seedling:The swamp calls to us- does it mean to help, or hurt? You’ll have to join us to find out!:seedling:

I’m conflicted! Do I watch it earlier, in the non-swampy daytime? Or do I watch it for the first time at the watch-along? Or do I become paralyzed by indecision and never watch it or move again?

Try watching it all the time.

…Until you memorize the whole episode script (dialogue, scenery, action, the whole thing). Wish I thought of this before sending the first post.

@biff_pow Dr. SchwarzeFries says to take two doses of Swamp Thing every Friday. One early and one in the evening.

I apologize for the numerous messages, maybe there is a hidden meaning behind it. Anyways, relooking over my last post, “until you memorize the whole thing” seems criminal. A better way to phrase that would be “until you memorize the whole Thing”.

The premier was amazing. I’m so excited for the rest of the season. I just read Moore’s run and am currently reading Snyder’s right now. The swamp god is definitely one of my favorites. I really really hope the bring in all the supernatural stuff like Etrigan and Constantine. The body horror was so great. The scene in the morgue was to me clearly and homage to the de-fibulator scene in The Thing, and it looked phenomenal. Percent mixture of cg and practical effects. Keep it up guys.

Copy/pasting for mercy on my fingers!

3.5 hours to go~ Not sure if I’ll be able to join tonight or not, my other friends usually want to do stuff right around this time on Fridays. What’s everyone else up to today?

Shoot! I just realized that I am going to a show tonight that interferes with this time. I’ll have to join in next week I suppose. Wish you all good luck in your travels through the Bayou?

Meant to do an exclamation point, not a question mark. Side note: can’t wait until Community 2.0 :smiley:
