First off, @FullMetalAlchemist01FAN
- This is nothing personally against you, so please don't take it that way, and please hear me out as an opinion on "opening thread for episodes way in advance." Thanks!!
So, if this thread is supposed to function as the "talk back" thread for ep 37, then, out of respect for ep 36, which hasn't even aired yet, I would have waited to make ep 37 thread till, at least, AFTER ep 36 has aired
Otherwise, since the following ep 37 is one of the popular episodes, I'm afraid the poor ep 36 would be totally overshadowed, and don't even get the full attention it deserves as the new episode.
Else, how far does this trend of opening episode threads way in advance go??? Why not go ahead, and make threads for ep 38, 39, 40, 41, 42, 43, 44, all the way to ep 51 now??!!
Yeah, fill them all up with spoilers, and every talk on them, more or less, have to be in spoiler tags. (Untill each episode airs, and then the thread becomes a talkback thread, but then why not to wait till then???)
Oh, wait, I think I know why not to do that here... Because, if people who know what's in those episodes want to have threads to post what they know and discuss contents of those episodes before those episodes air, IMO, Japanese fan-sub forum
would be more suitable, and appropreate, to hold such threads, IMO, since there, we are expecting discussions by people who had already seen those episodes, hence can freely discuss the content, without the fear of spoiling, accidentaly or not-so accidentaly, American CN viewers who hadn't seen those episodes yet... I believe that's part of the purpose of having the separate sub-forum for fan-sub viewers.
(Remember many CN viewers were ruined of "surprize" of Huesghs's death because some "eager" people had posted about what's coming, in this forum, porior to the airing of that episode?? I would like to avoid that happening again as the final episodes of Fma approaches.)
Presumably, I believe, the episode thread here is TALK BACK thread, and discussion here is for people who view Fma episodes AS THEY GET AIRED ON CN, then do the talkback discussion as each episode gets aired, as far as I understand it, and the next episode coming up is ep 36.
Here in American Audience forum, I prefer seeing new talk-back thread opened each week for that week's episode.
Sorry for my little rant, (and, I rarely express my opinion this forcefully on this board) but that's just my opinion on opening talk-back thread for episodes for American CN viewers.
