    Welcome to BBtv.

    BBtv will be starting with Buffy from the begining "Welcome to the Hellmouth" very soon. This thread is to discuss what day and time is best for everyone that wants to be involved with BBtv.

    We are starting again from the begining as we have had a lot of new members recently. All new members please check out this thread first HERE.

    At the moment Tuesday at 9pm GMT is a free BBtv slot as Dollhouse has ended its airing in the UK. But we want to know what is best for you and if you can state the days and times that are best we can work from there.

    There is a time zone thread HERE if you want to check what the GMT would be.

    I'm up for doing a Buffy rewatch. :D I finish work at 5pm GMT (on weekdays and free at weekends) so anything after that would suit me. Doesn't matter which day either.

    I can't say I can do it every week, but I'm free I'd be up for it too. I'll just go with when everyone else thinks is best. The slot you suggested is good for me though :)

    Perhaps we should keep that Dollhouse time slot open (it could be used for reruns or special showings) because when season 2 airs we would have to move whatever we're airing there... :)

    I need to watch the whole series again, it's been a while!

    I alternate between early and late shifts at work, and spend most Fridays to Sundays at the parents presently, so Monday to Thursday 10 PM GMT would be my ideal.

    ooo yay, i'm excited for a rewatch. So once every week is it? ...which is what, just under 3 years to do the whole show... yikes.

    If I'm putting a time out there, later is usually better for me watching episodes as I'm normally (ha, looks can be deceiving!...) busy during the day. I'm with Selig that 9 or 10GMT would be good, preferably during the week. Trouble is, that puts US'ers at 1/2pm to 4/5pm which may not be convenient for them?

    I want to do this :) But I do shift work so I won't say what's best for me because there isn't really a time/date that is :)

    We should have one time slot that puts it at night for UK/Europe and one that does so for the US. Then that gives everyone two time choices.

    any time after 10 PM GMT works great for me. Also I remember someone on the boards (name escapes me now) but they posted a Buffy/Angel Episode list of how the eps would over lap based on airing dates and events that happened in the buffyverse. I think it would be cool if we could get a hold of those and perhaps once we get to Season 4 of Buffy then we start to do the over laps of Angel. Any other thoughts on that???

    It would be good if we could get it all together (just as a thought), if UK peeps watched a little late, and US peeps watched it a little early? I dunno, would save essentially 'splitting' the board... if it were possible. Maybe thats not possible. Shame we have this whole spinning earth dilemma. :p

    When is this planning on starting (month wise) ?

    OK which works best for the UK/Europe, 9pm GMT or 10pm GMT on a Wednesday?

    As far as the US goes feel free to suggest what time would be best so we can get going with this :) Is Wednesday a good day? And what time would be best?

    And we are hoping to get this up and running as soon as we have the 2 time slots worked out :)
