I'm not sure we're going to find a more available day. I suppose quite late on Friday may work?

We could doodle poll it & see when people are free?

Sorry for letting you know so late, but I won't be home for the rewatch today. You're free to carry on without me, as I won't be around tomorrow either... This weekend's off to be a little busier than I had imagined.

Hoping this is in the right place, since there was a discussion of this piece when we rewatched this ep several weeks ago:

Does anyone object to moving the watch to Sunday?

It was so much easier to blame it on Them. It was bleakly depressing to think that They were Us. If it was Them, then nothing was anyone’s fault. If it was Us, what did that make Me? After all, I’m one of Us. I must be. I’ve certainly never thought of myself as one of Them. No one ever thinks of themselves as one of Them. We’re always one of Us. It’s Them that do bad things. - Jingo, Terry Pratchett

It's possible that I won't make it either day this weekend, but go on without me either way.

Yeah, have got at least 2 more hours driving to go, so may be best to carry on without us.

I might not make it either, forgot family was arriving. Not sure if I'll be free.

So as mentioned, we're coming close to wrapping up Season 8 of The Simpsons, and there's not a lot of enthusiasm for continuing, at least at the moment. Which means it needs to be replaced in the schedule.

Currently the front-runners are Futurama and The Venture Brothers. I think I would go with Futurama first personally.

Who's interested?

I would say Futurama would be the next logical step.

Futurama seems sensible to me.

Disenchantment will be rolling in come 2018 too...

Good point, though I don't know how easy it's going to be to watch it all together

EDIT: Hm, it being on netflix might help a little

I'm in the mood for a Venture Brothers rewatch, but I'm good with Futurama if such is the general consensus.
The noose draws tighter;
This is the end;
I'm a good fighter
But a bad friend;
I've played the traitor
Over and over;
I'm a good hater
But a bad lover.
