"Byw Celwydd" “Meta Discussion” - Anyone want to have a discussion thread on the current series of Byw Celwydd on S4C?
I’m calling this a “meta discussion”, because
(a) I’m pretentious and
(b) I would prefer if you didn’t start discussing the series as such in this thread.
The purpose of this thread is to see if there is enough interest in discussing the new series (Series 2 I believe) of “Byw Celwydd” on S4C which started on 15th of January 2017.
(Edit: Sorry, it started on 8th January; I was getting confused by Clic. So episode 2 has already gone out (15th Jan)).
There is always the problem of spoilers, which is one reason why I for one have never pushed the idea of series discussion threads too far, although I’ve always been interested in the idea.
I think there is a possible solution for this:
We have a new and different thread for each episode in the series, very clearly labelled as such, and the basic ground-rule would be:
Do not read or post in the thread until you yourself have seen the episode in question (unless you don’t care about reading spoilers yourself). Such threads would be clearly labelled at the top to say that you should not read or post in them unless you yourself have seen the episode in question, and that you should only post about the episode in question and no other.
Everybody then who had seen the episode in question would be free to write whatever they liked about that episode only (not even older ones, in case people watch out of order - it’s possible!), without worrying about spoiling it for anyone.
If people ignore spoiler warnings, and read a thread about an episode they haven’t watched, then I’m afraid that would be their lookout.
Would that work? I think it could.
Well, spoilers apart, what would we discuss?
Well, anything really, e.g.
Actors (including trivia and juicy gossip about actors, not libellous, of course. ).
Language - vocabulary, phrases, structures…anything else linguistic that comes to mind.
Politics … assuming we would all wear our Sunday Best Politeness and Mutual Respect hats of course…perhaps relating the on-screen politics to what is actually going on in Wales at the moment, as far as possible.
Plus anything else anyone can think of.
Maybe there could be an overall summary thread, mainly just containing links to the individual episode threads.
If there are at least, say, 5 positive responses to this (and not too many negative ones), I would be happy to create the summary thread, and start creating the episode threads.
