    Will you guys be doing any virtual meetups for Canadianites like myself, and other unfortunate Americans who can’t make the movie? I missed The Avengers virtual meetup and would like another shot at it. I rethink about it and realize you’re all seeing the movie at different times, so probably not eh?

      Let’s take a poll. If you’d come to a virtual meetup on Sunday at 4pm PT / 7pm ET / 12pm BST (2300 UTC), leave a reply to this comment.

        Maybe? I may have meat space plans, but it’s unclear at the moment. I also will not have seen the movie, but that’s never stopped OTI.


      • An Inside Joke #

        I would. Especially since I won’t be able to make the in-person meetup this weekend (from the podcast, I thought it sounded like this was happening next weekend – darn)


      • Steven Popplestone #

        Yes, yes, yes! (Even if it seemed obvious).


      • Skab #

        I’d love to drop by but I was unable to see the movie.


    • Matthew Wrather OTI Staff #

      OK, let’s have an online meetup. Today at 4pm PT / 7pm ET / midnight BST (2300 UTC), in the OTI Stickam Group (which is now private, so we’re not harassed by the regular Stickam crowd).


      Request to join after 2300 UTC, since I won’t be there before.

    I won’t be able to see Battleship this weekend (or maybe ever), so I have just one question: Does Liam Neeson, or Riggins from FNL, or Rihanna ever say “You sunk my battleship!”?


    • Lee OTI Staff #

      I too am dying to know this. Either way, NO SPOILERS PPL!! KTHX.


    • shechner OTI Staff #

      Here’s the freaky part: I’m pretty sure Liam Neeson *does* say it in The Grey.
