Actually I don't know how extravaganzical it will be, since my co-hosts are now all old men, who can hardly get through more than a few hours without a nap or at least another bowl of oatmeal....it all disgusts me, but somebody has to keep them from dozing in front of a computer screen in a puddle of their own urine.
I guess that somebody is me.
We're shooting for around five hours - a sad shadow of the 24 hour shows we used to do, but considering paragraph 1 of this post, I think five hours is as much as I can ask from the over-the-hill gang.
Hour 1 will be the usual introductory, self-congratulatory BS you know and love, with Roger laughing, Monk sighing, groaning and complaining, and me trying to keep things moving forward in a semi-coherent way.
Hour 2 will be a look back, a look forward, and a look inside. I'll probably be doing much of the talking, while the others make witty comments in the chat room while catching up on Facebook or whatever...
Hours 3 and 4 will involve guests. Names to come once I've blackmailed and booked them.
Hour 5 will be our annual Oscars predictions. RPoshard will join us, he and I will talk about the movies, Monk will pop in for the couple of films he's seen, Roger will laugh and make comments based on his rich fantasy life and what he thinks about movies he hasn't seen.
And then I'll put them all back in their stasis tubes till next year.
It begins, as promised in the post title, on February 19 2017 at 2 pm Eastern, 1 pm Central, 11 am Pacific, 7 pm in the UK, 8 pm in the UK's estranged buddy, the EU, 8 am Monday in Eastern Australia, 5 am Monday in Western Australia, and other times in other places.
You can hear it all by clicking on the Radio tab at the top of the forum pages, and if you'd like to participate in the stomach-churning fun of the chat room, just leave the radio tab open in your browser or mobile phone or whatever the hell you're using and click on the chat tab. It's all so simple.
More as it becomes available - we may even do some video nonsense depending on how much time I have to figure it out in the next week or so. Or maybe not. If you are able to see them, it means that I have to see them, and I'm not sure I can handle five hours of that. But maybe.
