The Grand First Episode Project. . .

Recommended Posts

Ok, here's a preliminary schedule for the first few weeks. This is basically just stuff that came to mind or I for some reason noted on Baidu's list. I'm also arbitrarily suggesting a two a week, Wednesday + Sunday schedule - obviously you can watch at any time, but if anyone who is planning to join in can aim for those days and maybe we can get a few people posting at the same time.

Edit: Ok, I'm now progressively adding in download / online / subtitle links. In some cases it might not be possible to give direct links, so you may need to click though. Also bear in mind that these sites are often full of ads / spyware, so if you think you might be vulnerable, be careful.

Edit Edit: Schedule moved to first post.

Great work - and good idea to give us a schedule and links! Looking forward to getting going.

I downloaded the first episode over the weekend. I also wrecked my computer over the weekend, so if I can get it fixed before Wednesday I'll be good to go!

Very good. Have added a couple of links for the second, 空镜子, but didn't have so much luck - couldn't find a torrent, no subtitles on shooter.cn and nor could I find it on Youtube. Still, we've got one P2P and one online option. If anyone happens to find the missing links, let us know . . .

Incidentally, I will quite happily rearrange the schedule if anyone wants to suggest changes.

If you're going as far back as 编辑部的故事, you might as well see if you can fit 我爱我家 in there somewhere too :D

The Youku one works nicely here in China. I just watched the first episode of 士兵突击 then, it streamed the whole episode without needing to pause for buffering.

This is awesome awesome. I felt quite sad about having missed the last TV watching action, so I'll do my best to keep up with this one.

Well, one of the things I like about this way of doing it is that there's not really anything need to 'keep up' with - it's one episode every few days, and you can dip in and out as you wish. Obviously you can say to yourself that you are going to watch them all if you want.

Not going to have time to watch today's scheduled 微笑Pasta, but here's a Youku link for anyone who's going ahead - don't forget to start a topic about it if you do watch it.

Added a couple of links for show no.5, 神探狄仁杰. Looking forward to this one as I think a 古装 detective show could be quite cool if done well, and if it's a case-a-show then it should be nice and easy to dip in and out of. Also, it's the first of the shows we've looked at that I haven't already watched (I've blacked out 微笑pasta already, so that doesn't count.)

Do you still need suggestions on what to watch, or do we have enough for now?

I'm looking forward to all the coming ones, BTW.

Suggestions are welcome, and I'd have no problem with moving the schedule around so that they come up sooner than my rather arbitrary choices. The more people who get involved the better. At the moment I'd say I'm more concerned by a lack of viewers than a lack of viewing material though.

I still don't see my suggestion for 我爱我家 on the list :tong

I agree. Maybe we should have a show of hands?

As for recommendations, I'd recommend this: http://www.chinese-forums.com/index.php?/topic/2-favourite-chinese-musician2426 . Undercover cop posing as a mobster meets an innocent stewardess while trying to capture some big fish. There's action, there's intrigue, and there's love. The lead actor is supposed to be quite a star nowadays.

I'm watching it now and it's interesting enough.

EDIT: The donkeys for the next few episodes:

我爱我家 emule youku

落地请开手机 emule youku

家有儿女 emule youku

Apologies, Imron, apologies.

I've put 我爱我家 in after 神探狄仁杰, and followed it up with Renzhe's 落地请开手机。

Ok, here's my next suggestion, 魔幻手机. Time travelling mobile phone robot from the future meets up with Sun Wukong in the past, dragging the guy he's fighting back to present day China. Hilarity ensues.
