Week 6: Misfits

As you may have guessed from the subject line (what a wonderful invention) this week we’ll be showing Misfits; season 2 to be precise, but if you haven’t seen the first season (and you should have, it’s very good) the idea is fairly simple: Heroes, with ASBOs. Except it’s better than that, and I’m really quite looking forward to season 2. I hope you’ll come along, the Red Centre as usual, at 5PM, with a pizza run at about 6.

Week 2: Lost Girl

Thanks to all of you who made it to last weeks session, I hope you enjoyed yourselves, this week we’ll be showing Lost Girl, a supernatural crime drama that follows Bo, a succubus who finds herself fighting crime and trying to not get in trouble with the other fae who make up the magical underworld we normal humans don’t get to see. Sounds like fun? We saw the pilot last year and most of us thought so us well, which would be why we’re showing it again!
We’ll start once again at 5PM on Friday, in the Red Centre theatre, pizza run around 6:30-7:00PM dinner a bit later before finishing at 11PM,
see you there!

Week 12: Defying Gravity + AGM

Defying GravityThis week: the long-awaited AGM! Woo hoo! The AGM is neccesary for the continued existence of SpockSoc next year, and it’s vital that we have at least fifteen members there, so please try to come, even if it’s just for the AGM. We’ll kick off the AGM itself at 7:30 on Friday, over dinner – send me an e-mail ahead of time if you want to order pizza and won’t be able to make it before 7:30. Pizza is $5 per half.

All exec positions are up for re-election. We’re all students, after all, and we’ll all have to graduate someday, so at some point we’ll certainly all need to be replaced. Please think seriously about whether you want to help keep SpockSoc running. You also get to hear fun things like the state of our finances, and read the club constitution.

So: AGM, 7:30pm Friday, Red Centre G001. Be there. If we don’t get the numbers, we’ll have to do it over during the summer break, and noone wants that, do they?

Also, we’ll be showing Defying Gravity, but seriously, the AGM is the main draw-card here, right? =) The series follows eight astronauts on a journey of exploration around the solar system. However, they’re not alone on the voyage, and not because there’s aliens hovering outside the window – they brought something with them. What’s inside the mysterious Pod 4? What’s waiting in store for them on their journey?

We showed the first half of the season way way back in the first few weeks of session one – I’d meant to show this much earlier, but I forgot to include it until I was reminded of it a few weeks ago. With that in mind, I’ll certainly open with a brief recap and character introduction. The screening starts at 5pm Friday, Red Centre G001.

Hope to see you there,
el presidente

Week 5: Day of the Triffids

This week we’ll be showing the Day of the Triffids miniseries, made in 2009 – we’d meant to show it last session, but due to a miscalculation on my part, we didn’t get to see it. Following this, we’ll most likely show the movie Wall-E – I’d intended to show Futurama, but since we’ve wound up moving it earlier in the session, I won’t have enough episodes to show. I’ll bring what I have anyway and leave the choice up to the people there – James and I will be leaving early, as we’re off to Japan at 5am on Saturday. =D

Anyway, we’re in the Red Centre theatre G001 for the rest of session. It’s at the Western end of the Red Centre building (the end closest to Anzac Parade) – we’ll hang the SpockSoc banner on the wall where it can be seen from the main runway. Bring warm clothing – the air conditioning in that room consists of the air from outside coming in through the vents on one wall, and going out the vents on the other.

Starting at 5pm, pizza run at 7-ish.
