Odds and Ends (Yeah, I'm Struggling for a Subject Line)
Yesterday, I realized September was an even busier month than I previously thought. I completely missed the 5th Anniversary of Jamie Bamber News! Hard to believe it's been five years. And it all started because I missed a convention appearance Jamie made not too far from where I live. It was the impetus that made me want to ensure fans didn't miss out on any Jamie related news. Or, ya know, awesome photos. And this community wouldn't be what it is with out all of you all, so everyone take a bow. :)

In actual Jamie Bamber news, this is your first reminder that Jamie's episode of CSI: MIami, "Blown Away", airs this Sunday, October 9th, at 10pm est on CBS. Here's the promo that aired at the end of this past Sunday's episode (sadly, no Jamie included):

I also had a question to pose to everyone regarding the Wednesday night Law & Order: UK posts and their future.

Now that Jamie is no longer on the show (sniff) and this is a Jamie Bamber community, there really isn't a need to continue to post discussion threads. However, because many of us are fans of the series regardless of Jamie's involvement and there is the potential for Matt to still be mentioned I am willing, for the remainder of Season 3 / Series 6, to open up a discussion post on Wednesday nights. If there isn't interest, I do understand, but it's not exactly a big time suck for me so I'm willing to continue doing it. Please share your thoughts on the matter in comments and thanks in advance for your input. :)

Happy frakkin' birthday to JBN! And thanks to all of you regulars who have shown so much appreciation for what we do (or what we try to do, heh ;) ). Thanks to Asta for letting me come on board as a moderator and make up for all that time I lurked on the sidelines of Bamber (and BSG in general) fandom; it was the first comm where I felt really comfortable, like the focus was on teh news (while still allowing plenty of room for teh squee, because... let's be honest. Have you looked at him? ;) ). Can't think of anywhere I'd rather contribute. Or flail.

Re: LOUK - I probably will not be joining in, though as I think I mentioned before I'm intrigued by episode 12's description. Since we're still a JB community and there are other places to discuss the show (besides LJ, Television Without Pity has a pretty active forum thread), we probably don't have to, I'll leave it up to others to pitch in their take tho.

WAW - five years is a long time! thanks for making all of this possible.

btw, I'm really excited about next weeks episode but I'm also afraid not to be disappointed. not by Jamie's performance mind you but by the screen time that he's going to get.

First off Happy Birthday JBN, 5 years and still going strong.
As far as LOUK goes I'd still quiet like to see an episode discussion thread I still think I'm in denial really and it'll be months before it's shown in the UK.

Sadly, I haven't seen any links for acquiring the episodes. And I can certainly try doing a bit of a recap so people know how the characters are fairing. Some may not care quite as much from here on out, but I imagine there's still interest in what's happening. It's kind of like how I don't watch soap operas regularly any longer, but I read the daily summaries. ;)

Assuming there is a Series 7/8, I'm not sure I'll be watching. Not only is Jamie gone, but Emilia has also moved on to other projects. I'm just not sure it will be the same show after Series 6, especially if the contracts of the other actors are up as well. But I plan to stick with the series until the end of this season. That's why it's no problem to continue posting for a few more weeks.

I haven't seen anything in the press here about it being re-newed. I remember seeing something on twitter that seemed to suggest that ITV were waiting to see what the viewing figures were like before deciding on the future.

5 years? Wow! Congratulations, that's really quite an achievement! Well done, thanks and keep up the good work :)

Happy Birthday!!! And thank you for countless squee-ing!

I think keeping the episode discussions going for the rest of the season make sense. We don't know about flashbacks, and it'll be interesting to see if they just go on without discussing Matt anymore. But I understand the desire to pull the plug.

asta77 From: asta77 Date: October 5th, 2011 04:35 pm (UTC) (Link Me)
Yeah, I'm curious to see if Matt continues to be mentioned or referenced. It's hard to believe his presence won't be felt in some way.

Then again, maybe a sendoff ties it up? Maybe because we want to hold on to Matt, we don't want to give up the discussion post. So, what we really need is a "My Favorite Matt Devlin Scene" post or a "Scene I Wish I Could Have Been In" thread so we can say our farewells.

Then again, I'm holding the flag at the "Not. Dead. Damnit"! denial camp, so that is just a wild stab in the dark!

I had talked with zegeekgirl about doing a Matt Devlin memorial post. I think the main issue was timing. We didn't want to do it right after 'Survivor's Guilt' aired (too soon) and I'm still uncertain about how spoilery Matt's death is. Now that SG has been viewed and talked about online as well as news of Paul joining the cast, I would think everyone (or at least everyone who comes here) would know.

Hey, we never did see a body! Yeah, I've watched a lot of soaps in my time. ;)

Thanks for always keeping us up on the latest and greatest Bamber news.

Can't wait for Monday's CSI. (And for his doctor gig coming on TNT)

Still crossing my fingers for some great news that would bring Jamie back on a weekly basis in the starring role he deserves.
