Everyone is doing really well, I only wish I had the time to really do what I wish to do. Only one week of school left then a week left of this challenge which is where I will shine!

Keep Up the Good Work Everyone!

Bump to the front. I was hoping to get through 25 movies. Not sure if that is going to happen, been too busy.

Okay, now I know it's EXTREMELY early to be talking about this, but I want to get the feel for if anyone is interested in doing this again this year.

I will be changing the rules from last year, TV show episodes are now included, but for the most part the rules will be the same. I am considering allowing people to begin on Thanksgiving this year, as opposed to December 1st.

Please let me know if you guys are interested in doing this again, I know, even I fell out of spirit of doing this last year, but I think it will be better this time around, because of the TV show episode thing. I will post a new thread for this in November.

Count me in! I will try to watch 50. This gives me time to try and buy a few more titles before time to start!

So 1 TV episode = 1 movie?

Starting on Thanksgiving would be great. That is when I traditionally start watching Christmas movies - beginning with It's A Wonderful Life. This is especially true since Thanksgiving films are permitted. . . Perhaps even start the Monday of Thanksgiving week or something like that. Seems kinda odd (in my opinion) to include Thanksgiving films, yet not be able to start until Thanksgiving day. However, if Thanksgiving films are not included, then I say, yes, start on Thanksgiving day.

Yeah, which means I will probably raise it from 50 to something else (75 or even 100)

I'm thinking that this will run from November 20th to December 25th, which means it will probably be raised to 100 then, because that's over a month to watch 100 movies, TV specials or TV show episodes, and there are a crap load of Christmas TV episodes!

More to come...
