How did you first discover SMK and rediscover it? May 3, 2014 23:30:48 GMT

I was in college when SMK came out and because I had little time and had to share a TV, I didn't get to watch SMK much except for the last season. I got to see most of the episodes a year or two later when it aired on a local independent station. I still have the VHS tapes that I made. I nearly wore them out, especially season 3 (I'm an incurable romantic and loved watching their romance develop).
Oh, btw iwsod, I think your numbering of the episodes is pretty close because I went back and looked at my old tapes. My hubby bought me all four seasons last year and there seemed to be something odd about the order. I think when I recorded the tapes, the station aired them in production order rather than the order they were originally aired. For example, (once you get to ordering season 4), during UB, when Lee is drugged, I distinctly remember thinking that Amanda was going to ask Lee if he loved her, because that was the order I remember. That would have been weird since Stemwinder was aired first. However, I never saw the first run and my tapes have UB first. When I watched the DVD for the first time I was scratching my head wondering why UB was after the Stemwinder eps.
Anyway, my VHS tapes were gathering dust and I hadn't watched them for years. There is an interesting story about what sparked my interest again. I am an X-Men fan and write X-Men fanfic (never posted them on ff.net but I do beta other fics so if anyone is looking for a beta...). My favorite character is Nightcrawler. About a year ago I was doing an Internet search on Nightcrawler and stumbled on a forum discussion about the SMK episode Nightcrawler (pretty much my favorite ep of the whole series). That particular forum (I think it was a Yuku) was no longer very active but it was interesting reading. After Hubby bought me all four seasons for my birthday, I got hooked again. From there I started looking for other SMK websites and have read fanfic on several sites, one of which had links JWWM, and that brought me here.
I am jealous!! I would have loved to experience the show when it first aired.. it would have been wonderful to follow their journey!!
Where were you watching smk? are you in USA? did you watch it on CBS?
Isn't that interesting!!! confirmation that UB was before stemwinder!! Yeah when the JWWM walk gets to season 4, we'll definitely be watching UB before stemwinder -
I did come up with an order for season 1 pretty much by myself Shadoweddancer, but since then I've not had time for it! lol!! so working out episode order is much more of a collaborative process - we discuss season 2 order as we walk through the season.. I haven't published a list for the JWWM season 2 preferred order yet - but it won't be my work alone that's for sure!
Also, you'll find here on Nedlindger's there is an episode thread - where discussion has started to take place about season 3 order - check it out!!! and please feel free to share your ideas on the order!!! Here's the thread: nedlindgers.proboards.com/thread/57/episode-order
When we get to season 4 please remind me to put UB first if I forget!!
So glad you found us.. Nightcrawler is a fabulous episode!!! The season 4 episode I remember the most!! I haven't watched season 3 and 4 for a very long time (except the first 5 eps of season3) so when I blog them they are fresh and newish - so JWWM doesn't write about what's ahead of where the walk is up to. - if you have any questions about that feel free to ask ..
Looking forward to hearing from you shadoweddancer!
Your hubby buys fab presents!!
