DC (disguisedcyclone) | 437 comments Hello! Welcome to the thread :)

Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice is the book-of-the-month for this October 2012. Besides the online discussion and face-to-face discussion, we are planning an *online* group screening of the 1995 TV series!



(This means that we will simultaneously watch the episodes of the series, while commenting about it in a forum/chatroom!)

As this is a first-time event for the group, please do give us your comments and/or concerns about it.

Details
-Target days: October 5, 12, 19 (all Fridays)
-Target time: 9-11pm (GMT+8)
-Info: We will be streaming 2 episodes each Friday evening via live stream, while opening up a chatroom where everyone is welcome to comment.
-Alternative: If you have a personal copy of the series and do not wish to watch the live stream, you may opt for joining the chatroom, then pressing the play button simultaneously with the live stream :)

Other concerns
We have put on hold the decision to view the movie as well, due to time considerations.


Tina (tinamats) | 2665 comments Wee once again, what an awesome, awesome idea, DC. :)

I can do 9pm, I think. Live streaming -- I'm not sure exactly how to do that, pero feel ko pwede. Will research a bit on that. :) At least people won't have to look for copies na lang, pero syempre yung connection na lang. :)

I'm all game for Skype. Then ayun, we can post logs here. Let's just make sure everything is on topic when we chat, para hindi ma-over power ng chismisan. Haha.


Aaron Vincent (aaronvincent) | 2053 comments I think what Alexa is suggesting is creating a channel on this site: http://new.livestream.com/

Kind of like this channel for all things BBC: http://www.livestream.com/chebra

Pero dapat diyan, mabilis yung internet ng host para hindi maglag sa viewers.

On my question:
So 6 55-minute episodes siya so pano hahatiin kung October 3 magstart? 2 episodes per week? And pati yung Keira Knightley movie?

(Iba ka talaga DC! Ikaw lang ang F2F mod na tatlo ang thread. hahaha)

> Nice! This would probably work, especially if the one hosting it has great internet speeds, I think? Maybe we can pilot test this some time this week, just to make sure it works? :D As for your concern about the episodes, I'll check it out. Probably review some things (watch them, if I could), and let you all know by next week Monday?

Dante (danteocualesjr) | 294 comments Good idea. But I'm not familiar with online streaming. I'll watch it in my laptop na lang kasi I have a copy of the series. :)


Tina (tinamats) | 2665 comments I think those who have their own copies can watch on their own and just join the chat? Synchronize and all. But we'll still have that live stream thing if we can manage para those who have no copies can watch. :)

And LOL on pulis mode! Let's just not get carried away with chatting about off topic things. Pwede naman, wag lang mawala sa usapan masyado. :D


Dante (danteocualesjr) | 294 comments I'd love to join the chat.


Cary (forestercary) | 1370 comments Love it!!!


Angus (angusmiranda) | 4337 comments Siguro I'll procure a copy somehow and just join the chat? Sayang din kasi sa bandwidth, hehe. Isync na lang, like someone in the chatroom can give the go signal to hit the play button. :D

This is what I'd like to do too :)

Oh, and I'd personally like to have the movie screened the night before the F2F. Hopefully by that time, most of us have finished the book and all :)

Cary (forestercary) | 1370 comments tama ganun na lang, sabay sabay manood sa kanya kanyang video player


argienchar | 11 comments Saan po pede makakuha ng kopya ng series? :) Gusto ko po sumali! :)

DC (disguisedcyclone) | 437 comments Hi tuckle! Welcome :)

Right now, we're working on the feasibility of livestreaming the episodes - so people who don't have a copy needn't try so hard to find one :) We'll let everyone know if it works!

Note: We target to have the screening some time next week :D


argienchar | 11 comments okey po! hintayin ko po announcement nyo! thank you! :)

DC (disguisedcyclone) | 437 comments Hello everyone!

We have tested out the live stream - and after much deliberation (5 hours or so), we have decided that it's a definite GO! Woohoo!

I've updated the first post to reflect the details, but please note the following:

Haha yeah, someone did say that he loves Mary then backtracked after hearing her sing! Tsk tsk, giving love a bad name :)

T'was fun! There was even countdown to Aaron's birthday and Blue's hyperness outlasted everyone :)

Great idea DC and yeba for a successful first screening!
