    Sure each new DSC episode will have a Grade & Discussion Thread and if you read that thread it is assumed you have seen the episode as it will be full of plot spoilers.
    The same thing with Talking Trek the show on CBSAA. Each show discusses that week's DSC episode so it is assumed by watching Talking Trek you have seen that DSC episode.

    No, I don't think that's necessary, each Talking Trek deals with a specific episode so it fits into the regular episode discussion thread.

    No because we already have a discussion thread for that. Also, I'm a little nervous for the talking trek stuff because after watching After the Black (Orphan Black) last year and how awful that was, what will there be to discuss. If they put out a quality show, I'll be gladly wrong, but they have to apply to all the viewers.

    This will be fine all by itself.

    But if some want to include materiial from a episode's post-game wrap up, okay. A separate thread I feel would be un-necassary

    Yeah, the inevitable episode by episode discussion threads will be fine. A thread to discuss Talking Trek is one thing - I don't think we need an episode by episode breakdown of the episode by episode breakdown of the main show.

    Hopefully, we'll cover the points they raise in the main thread anyway.

    We need to go deeper!

    (technically we already have, since this is a thread discussing a thread about a discussion show discussing the actual episode) :eek:

    *indefinite spinning sounds* :shifty:

    I wouldn't be adverse to having a single thread for Talking Trek and have it running continuiously throughout the season. With the main episode discussions, Talking Trek might get lost in the fold.

    Nah, lump them into one Megathread instead.
