The Spandex Report
See You Round
July 23, 2011

News

The Spandex Report will be taking an extended sabbatical for the immediate future. There's several factors that went into this decision, but it's basically come down to the fact that the SR has been running for nearly 4 years now (amazing!), and the remaining editors have been running themselves ragged trying to keep this service to you all. So, to put it plainly, we need a break. We hope you all will understand our choice here.

As for how long the break will last, honestly? We don't know. We're hoping it won't be long, but it could be a while. It won't be forever though. That, we guarantee.

In the meantime, as far as keeping up with fandom goes, the watchlist we use for the report is and always has been public, so feel free to peruse our list of sources yourself.

Thank you so much for your support over the years.

Early Edition

News

- Power Rangers on Netflix has been encountering problems for people over the last five days, primarily due to the fact that all 732 episodes under one TV show has been causing any and all Netflix apps to choke past ep 255 (watching past that via browser on your computer works fine). The folks behind Netflix have attempted to circumvent this issue in the last day or two by logically splitting the show into seasons, but people here and there have still been reporting issues. We'll keep you updated.

We've gotten one response about our appeal for new editors last week, but we're still looking for someone else! Please contact us using the e-mail address below if you're interested in working for the Report.

Whoops.

In the last issue of the SR, we mentioned that we are looking for new editors to join, and for anyone interested to shoot us an e-mail at spandexreport@gmail.com.

Well, Gmail seems to have performed the magnificent tactic of sending at least one of the submissions on this end into the Spam mail folder, at which point it got deleted without thinking. Great job, Gmail!

So if anyone had e-mailed us about this within the past 24 hours (and we know for sure at least one person did), please resend the mail, and we apologize for the inconvenience here.

The Spandex Report
The "Holy Crap, Two Weeks Adds Up" Edition
June 7, 2011

News
- This first bit of news is a non-franchise deal, probably more suited for the Editor's Note, but we wanted to make sure everyone saw it. Basically, we're looking for some new folks to help out around these parts! [personal profile] angel_negra and lielabell had to leave the SR for greener pastures (we will miss them greatly, of course), so we're in the market for two new editors. If any of you are interested, please hit us up at spandexreport@gmail.com.
- As you may have noticed from the lack of a "Next Episode Airtimes" section below, last Saturday's ep "Boxed In" seems to be the last for a while. We're currently on reruns now and will be for some time to come, it seems. Whether this is only a short break or whether the original word on the streets about Samurai lasting two years is true remains to be seen.
- Speaking of Samurai, a new video game by Namco Bandai was revealed at E3 today that will be coming out this holiday season for Wii and DS. A trailer can be seen on Youtube here.
- Anybody that's planning on going to San Diego Comic Con this year may be interested in a contest that can get you VIP treatment for the con's PR-based events and panels. More information can be found at the official PR Facebook page here.

Editor's Note

You may have noticed that, over the last few weeks, the SR has been bouncing back and forth between Sunday and Monday. Originally this was due to schedule slips and real life intervening on us, but the editors collectively realized that Monday actually works a lot better for us, not least because we can get the entire week into each issue without worrying about missing out on any fandom stuff put up Sunday afternoon and evening. So basically, expect the SR to drop every Monday from now on. However, also expect each issue to only hold items from Monday to Sunday; ie. anything fandom related that went up today is not guaranteed to be in this post.

Also, for those of you into Super Sentai, Power Rangers' Japanese source material, do note that their weekly newsletter, finalauraburst, has been back up and running for about a month now. We know a friggin lot of you are watching Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger, so perhaps this may interest you. :)
