Welcome to shwatchalongs, a Sherlock Holmes Watchalong community. We watch various incarnations of Sherlock Holmes together for fun, amusement, and lots of sparkle text.
Things are fairly laissez-faire around here:
RULE 1 No gorram complaining that there's no watchalong in your timezone! No one time will fit everyone, so if you want one - set it up! Point people in the direction of a countdown timer and the sparkle text resources and LET RIP!
Here endeth the rules. Pull up a comfy chair and get ready to squee!
What is a Watchalong?
It's when fans get together online, queue up their video players for the same thing (a TV show episode, a film, etc.), and press play at the same time. And then we fangirl out (caps lock, sparkle text, insightful commentary) in the comments as we watch it together.
It's a lot of fun, and it's a great excuse to re/watch various versions of Sherlock Holmes.
How do I participate?
Show up! There's a countdown timer posted ahead of time, so show up before it reaches zero and be ready to press play. Proceed with commenting and fangirling. Subtext goggles are optional but encouraged.
Can I host a Watchalong?
You sure can! It's impossible to have a Watchalong at a time that will work for everyone, so if one doesn't work for you then you are encouraged to schedule another one at a time that does.
Try to make sure it doesn't conflict with another scheduled Watchalong; you don't want to exclude people by making them choose.
What can we have Watchalongs for?
Anything related to Holmes, any version of Holmes: TV shows, films, made-for-TV movies, interviews, commentary versions, and we'll even listen along to radioplays. Anything on the tellybox you think fans of the various incarnations of the Sherlock Holmes stories might like is welcome!
Just make sure it's accessible, if you know what I mean .
