You missed a few entrants. I didn't see myself, Emma311 or Trevor mentioned.

Didn't notice it when I pasted it in but I did the work in Excel, so I guess it added something in for me.

What the hell, Excel.

Added in. When I drew for prizes, I didn't care if you counted or not. As long as something was watched, you were good for an entry.

Re: January 2012 TV on DVD* Challenge Discussion Thread

As I was looking through the list, I wondered how BobO'Link had managed to watch almost 500 hours in a month (that would mean 20 days of television in 31 days). Then I realized, the tallying for entries was based on one entry being one hour, not two hours, as I had been calculating.

Based on the actual tallying system, I really had 185.75 Entries.

Sorry for the mistake Mister Peepers.

No problems. Easy change to make.

Unless you want to pick someone yourself, I can just draw another name.

I defer to your superior name-drawing abilities.

You've got everybody else's hourly count, but you used my individual episode count. My hourly count was 202.5

*Lots* of coffee and judicious use of a pair of eye speculum!

Yeah, it's that oddball counting for this one. It's actually a bit less than what I did for the Sci-Fi and Horror ones which surprised me a bit. I really thought it'd be significantly more considering the format and the ease of throwing in a half hour episode of something.

I just made it into the 150+ club. Watched some really great television and revised a couple of shows that had been gathering dust on my shelf. Thanks for hosting, Mister Peepers! Congratulations to all the winners! I cannot wait until next year.

I've done around the same compared to other challenges but I didn't get the burnout. There's enough variety to be able to switch to, along with the options being shorter, compared to horror, horror, horror, for 31 days.

Re: January 2012 TV on DVD* Challenge Discussion Thread

^Yeah, I didn't get that burnout feeling for this one either. By the end of the horror one I truly felt drained and almost didn't do the comedy one for that reason. But the change of genre really helped keep me going. Even then I didn't hit the Holiday one very hard just because of those 3 back-to-back challenges. I'd never really given any thought to being able to easily mix genres with this one and it helping avoid that burnout feeling. That's a good observation.

Re: January 2012 TV on DVD* Challenge Discussion Thread

Thanks for picking up the slack on this challenge, Mister Peepers. As always, I never watch as much as I want, but always have a good time.

Also, a big thanks to Golden Wheels for the prizes offered, not just in the challenge, but all of them. I never participate to win a prize, but it's always a nice bonus.
