Plans for webisode

I was thinking maybe we could treat this just like the Season articles. A small picture from each webisode, a link to the article and a small description next to it along with the release date.--Citizen 21:19, 7 July 2008 (EDT)

Not available in UK?!

I don't believe it!! I can't watch the webisodes! -- Friskymuffin - (talk) 16:04, 14 July 2008 (EDT)

  • I'm sure they'll be on Youtube soon enough...--MiamiVolts (talk) 16:06, 14 July 2008 (EDT)
    • Also, since they changed the trailer from americans to everyone, they might do that with this as well.--BardinessBoy 16:08, 14 July 2008 (EDT)
      • I certainly hope so, otherwise I'd be gutted. -- Friskymuffin - (talk) 16:11, 14 July 2008 (EDT)
  • It's only about 3 and a half minutes, but it is kind of exciting and has a surprise ending which I won't spoil on the talk page just yet. :)--MiamiVolts (talk) 16:28, 14 July 2008 (EDT)
  • I tried changinng my computer's regional settings to The U.S., but it didn't work! NBC is too clever! :( --Anonymousheroine
    • Not even using an open proxy does the video load :( Why, NBC, why?--Referos 16:46, 14 July 2008 (EDT)

Spoiler pages

  • The spoiler pages for Echo, Kiko Ellsworth, Agent Howard, and The Constrictor can be converted to mainspace articles. Gina hasn't aired yet, so her character and actress page should remain in the spoiler namespace.--MiamiVolts (talk) 17:04, 14 July 2008 (EDT)
    • I've moved all the relevant actor/character pages and deleted the spoiler stuff, but I'll leave it to someone else to add an "about" section as I haven't seen the webisode yet. -- Friskymuffin - (talk) 17:22, 14 July 2008 (EDT)
      • In cases like that, you can still add the About section and use a {{sectstub}} to note where info. is needed. If it's a character page, should use "Character History" (not About) and a section for the related media.--MiamiVolts (talk) 17:34, 14 July 2008 (EDT)

Can't Watch it in UK

Hey, It won't let anyone outside the US watch it! Damm!:(-- Hiro  talk  contribs  18:52, 14 July 2008 (EDT)

  • People have already uploaded copies to YouTube and other sites. I imagine they're probably coerced into blocking access to other countries by the local affiliates. It's pretty obvious if you make content like this available only to the US that it's just going to make its way onto other sites...and then you miss out on the advertising. So I can only hope it's not their choice to restrict access. (Admin 14:44, 16 July 2008 (EDT))

Review

Heroes on a fraction on a tiny budget, anyone? --Skywalkerrbf 12:37, 15 July 2008 (EDT)

  • I was also hoping for a much longer segment, but realistic that it would likely be similar to the short webisode clips CW put out for Smallville since that's the only other webisode stuff I had watched. I really like the webisode so far. It will be interesting to see how it progresses.--MiamiVolts (talk) 15:12, 15 July 2008 (EDT)

Calling Bob?

I probably missed something, but how do we know that it was Bob that the Constrictor called? Pierre 14:56, 15 July 2008 (EDT)

  • Listen carefully, he says "Bob" when he reports Howard's dead.--MiamiVolts (talk) 14:58, 15 July 2008 (EDT)
    • Yeah... thanx :) Pierre 13:30, 16 July 2008 (EDT)

"Next time" Quote

On the page it saids: "Next time, you won't mess with the mailman."When I watch it, I thought he said "don't mess with the mailman."So I was wondering,which is right: won't or don't?SPARTAN-077 15:11, 15 July 2008 (EDT)

  • I just double-checked myself. He says "Next time, you won't mess with the mailman." --MiamiVolts (talk) 15:15, 15 July 2008 (EDT)
  • I checked a few times. It's "Next time... don't mess with the mailman." There's no way it can be "you won't mess with the mailman" there aren't enough words and the first word is a clear "don't". (Admin 13:08, 16 July 2008 (EDT))
    • Thanks Admin, I checked again today and you're right. Looks like I heard it wrong the first couple times. Sorry, Spartan.--MiamiVolts (talk) 13:49, 16 July 2008 (EDT)

New crew members

There's a lot of new crew who worked on Going Postal. If anyone wants to work on those pages, I posted a listing as a userpage.--MiamiVolts (talk) 04:12, 21 July 2008 (EDT)

Terrible

Did anyone else think the acting, camerawork and general feel of this webisode was mediocre. It felt like it was made by a group of students. Rybo5000

Naming Conventions

The webisodes are listed in the "Webisode:Going Postal, Part X" format. However, the webisode title credits name the episodes in the "Going Postal, Chapter X: Title" format. Is there a reason for this inconsistency? --The Mysterious Major Despard 00:06, 8 November 2008 (EST)
