Let's Have A Blank Check Podcast Episodes Themed Netflix Party, ONTD!

Over the last 7 weeks, several ONTDers & I watched National Treasure, The First Wives Club, The Craft, a We Hate Movies podcast selection - Jupiter Ascending, Snowpiercer, one of this OP’s favorite thrillers - What Lies Beneath & Heartbreakers, which OP had not seen before! together using the Chrome extension Netflix Party, where we used the built-in chat feature to discuss together....from a safe social distance.

Weekly movie viewings are planned with a selection poll on Tuesdays (sometimes Wednesdays).

1) Using Chrome Browser, Click here & click on the "Install Netflix Party" button. Once you are redirected to the Chrome Web Store, click "Add to Chrome" to finish installing Netflix Party.
2) On movie night, the host ONTDer will open a video in Netflix to watch and start playing the video. If selected, the host will have full playback controls (YMMV).
3) To create a party, the host will click on the red "NP" icon located next to the address bar. Then click "Start Party" to get the party started, and share the party URL in an ONTD post to invite everyone to join!
4) To join a party click on the party URL, which will redirect to Netflix's website. You must have your own Neflix account log-in. Then click on the "NP" button next to the address bar, and you should automatically join the party.

Below is a poll to vote for our 8th week's movie night selection & date/time. This week I have selected films featured on another absolutely wonderful, personal favorite of mine Blank Check With Griffin and David Podcast - of which I am not a Patreon subscriber like I am for We Hate Movies, but I probably should be. The podcast covers "entire filmographies of directors who have a huge massive success early on and then are given a so-called blank check to work on whatever passion project they want. Sometimes those checks clear and sometimes they bounce, babyyyy!" Not an ad, just another enthusiastic, movie podcast loving endorsement, if you are looking for more podcast content these days. The third movie podcast I listen to is How Did This Get Made?, which I will have as a theme in an upcoming week.

Are you constantly voting for Friday nights but not actually joining the parties on Friday nights?

I don't understand the question, and I won't respond to it.

Would you like to do a doubles week for Friday & Saturday parties?


If yes, arranged how?

Same movie both nights, give the Saturday voters a chance!
Highest polled movie on highest polled night (likely Friday based on all previous polls) & 2nd highest polled movie on next night.

Thank you to everyone who voted for & joined me last week to watch Heartbreakers. I love sharing these movies with you!
