and it was appreciated! That puts us in need of 20 more ballots to get this to 50 and a more representative slice of ILX... can we do it?
YES WE CAN

Can I do a write in for Umbrella Academy somehow? it wasnt nommed but i'd honestly have put it in my 3-5 section if I'd realised.

Stoop Crone (Trayce), Thursday, 28 January 2021 02:19 (eight months ago) link

forks, should I bother you with a correction to my supplemental ballot or nah? Because I stupidly left off the best 'new to me' show I saw last year. I mean I assume you aren't actually tallying votes for how many people first watched and became fans of eg Mork & Mindy in 2020 but just thought I'd check.

Vladislav Bibidonurtmi (Old Lunch), Thursday, 28 January 2021 02:59 (eight months ago) link

Voted! Man, I thought I watched more. Actually, I did watch more, but because I forgot to nominate a lot of it wasn't on here! What, nobody else was watching Beforeigners? (OK this came out in late 2019 on HBO Europe but only this Feb on HBO streaming in the US.)

Guayaquil (eephus!), Thursday, 28 January 2021 05:18 (eight months ago) link

i would strongly suggest that at this point (when the backend of the vote tabulation is fairly tricky) we hold off from trying to reorder ballots. Trayce, if you'd like to add something to the bottom, just email me back. OL, happy to add your rediscovered best-ofs to the master list.

Everyone apologizes for their list when they submit it for some reason! Be proud of your viewing habits, whether too much too little too trashy or too erudite! We are what we eat!

i'm assuming i have until tomorrow midnight to submit? i'm almost done my viewing list, but work blew up a few days ago and i am suddenly now dealing with vertigo, which fucking sucks like you wouldn't believe; but i hope to have a satisfactory list by tomorrow evening.

midnight tomorrow is fine. But all you other non-afflicted people should get these in tonight!

the serious avant-garde universalist right now (forksclovetofu), Thursday, 28 January 2021 19:47 (eight months ago) link

Enjoyed Beforeigners but think I voted for it last year xps

Add me to the list of would have voted for The Umbrella Academy if I'd remembered about it (and if it had been nominated)

groovypanda, Thursday, 28 January 2021 20:01 (eight months ago) link

Noted forks all good :)

Stoop Crone (Trayce), Friday, 29 January 2021 00:57 (eight months ago) link

I think I only saw four things, and one wasn't very good, but I sent a ballot with the other three!

BTW, if you have not received a note from me after receiving your ballot that means you either sent it today or i haven't seen it... so resend if you think i missed it!

the serious avant-garde universalist right now (forksclovetofu), Friday, 29 January 2021 21:18 (eight months ago) link

Glad the Awkwafina show was nommed... near top of my ballot, so much funnier than I expected

imago, Friday, 29 January 2021 22:59 (eight months ago) link

Cracked 40! Can we get 20 more to put this up to 60?

That's not really my scene (I'm 41) (forksclovetofu), Friday, 29 January 2021 23:14 (eight months ago) link

imo if you keep the polls open until you wake tomorrow we will

imago, Friday, 29 January 2021 23:55 (eight months ago) link

Happy to vote again :)

that's not my post, Friday, 29 January 2021 23:57 (eight months ago) link

1 vote apiece i'm afraid. But tell your friends either on another thread or those who lurk!

That's not really my scene (I'm 41) (forksclovetofu), Saturday, 30 January 2021 00:19 (eight months ago) link

Also, everyone who has voted should have a note from me by now.

That's not really my scene (I'm 41) (forksclovetofu), Saturday, 30 January 2021 00:20 (eight months ago) link

just voted - managed to get to 25 with a few things that weren't nominated - Sewing Bee & Better Things

danzig, Saturday, 30 January 2021 01:06 (eight months ago) link

so.... anyone else? I'm fine with Thermo sending in at midnight and I"m okay leaving this open for the night but I'd like to close in the morning.

That's not really my scene (I'm 41) (forksclovetofu), Saturday, 30 January 2021 02:29 (eight months ago) link

I sent mine! Despite the vertigo!!

FRAUDULENT STEAKS (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Saturday, 30 January 2021 02:42 (eight months ago) link

indeed you did! So we are at a total of 46... definitely enough to do a 77 but 7 less than last year. Any final takers before I put this to bed?

That's not really my scene (I'm 41) (forksclovetofu), Saturday, 30 January 2021 04:23 (eight months ago) link

I just submitted a last-minute ballot.

jaymc, Saturday, 30 January 2021 06:21 (eight months ago) link

takin' it!

That's not really my scene (I'm 41) (forksclovetofu), Saturday, 30 January 2021 06:23 (eight months ago) link

Okay, closing it up. 47 total ballots with 162 shows receiving at least one vote.

That's not really my scene (I'm 41) (forksclovetofu), Saturday, 30 January 2021 07:08 (eight months ago) link

Oh no oh no! I forgot!

tangent x (tangenttangent), Saturday, 30 January 2021 11:54 (eight months ago) link

Despite imago's repeated reminders... Going to fire one across now (or, in fifteen minutes) but completely understand if you can't accept. :(

tangent x (tangenttangent), Saturday, 30 January 2021 11:55 (eight months ago) link

Fucks sake forks, a bit of a warning wouldnt have gone amiss lad

Qanondorf (darraghmac), Saturday, 30 January 2021 12:13 (eight months ago) link

I"m okay leaving this open for the night but I'd like to close in the morning.

It is 7am EST. I think forks should be able to accept haha

imago, Saturday, 30 January 2021 12:14 (eight months ago) link

xp lol

tangent x (tangenttangent), Saturday, 30 January 2021 12:15 (eight months ago) link

okay, i took BOTH of the last minute ballots, so we're up to 49 ballots and 165 shows receiving at least one vote and a decent looking top 77 where we are out of single vote territory at #75 and every single #1 pick makes the countdown! Yay me for figuring out a way to make this balance where those boxes were ticked!

depending on moka's schedule, we can likely get this up the week after or two weeks after we finish the album poll in the upcoming week. then i'm done with this shit for awhile; it's a surprisingly time-consuming gig!

That's not really my scene (I'm 41) (forksclovetofu), Sunday, 31 January 2021 02:08 (eight months ago) link

your effort is appreciated forks

Dan S, Sunday, 31 January 2021 02:16 (eight months ago) link

moka's too

Dan S, Sunday, 31 January 2021 02:18 (eight months ago) link

It isn't surprisingly! My god

imago, Sunday, 31 January 2021 08:49 (eight months ago) link

But the effort is stupendous and I'm so grateful

imago, Sunday, 31 January 2021 08:49 (eight months ago) link

lol I forgot this was happening

Hello Nice FBI Lady (DJP), Monday, 1 February 2021 18:15 (eight months ago) link

I've only now discovered a show going the last few years Id've nommed/voted for if I knew about it sooner called Superstore. By one of the Office writers, basically its what if The Office, but Walmart. I'd never heard of it.

Stoop Crone (Trayce), Monday, 1 February 2021 22:35 (eight months ago) link

Keep seeing that on my Netflix splash page - will check it out

groovypanda, Tuesday, 2 February 2021 07:11 (eight months ago) link

Superstore is IMMENSELY FUNNY

Hello Nice FBI Lady (DJP), Tuesday, 2 February 2021 18:13 (eight months ago) link

And quite subversive! A lot of really good current worker's politics and a great representative cast.

Stoop Crone (Trayce), Thursday, 4 February 2021 02:59 (eight months ago) link

Yeah, I've watched a few episodes and now I'm saving it up.

trishyb, Thursday, 4 February 2021 11:31 (eight months ago) link

we're roughly on track for a next week rollout here btw
