Season 9 Early Episode Protocol

Post by Wayoshi (?) » Tue May 21, 2019 7:41 pm

Hello everyone,

Italy has recently been airing the first half of season 9 every weekday, that is concluding tomorrow. I was ignoring it as it aired in Italian, but I have learned that not only is there a HD VOD after the airing, but there is also an English audio option for the VOD. Throw in dedicated fans adjusting the pitch to NTSC, and we have some early episodes. These are really good quality, with just one "cartoonito" watermark in the top right.

So one last time, let's plan for early episodes, as I bet this will happen again sometime in the second half of season 9. Here's what I've done and will do:

-Made early episode threads in the spoiler forum, with episode links. I'll lock these threads once they've aired on Discovery Family.
-Episode threads will continue in this forum weekly for the Discovery Family airing. I'll link the appropriate early episode thread so all commentary on the episode is easily accessible.

Plenty of threads, probably not many responses in each, but this is the best solution. Happy watching, whenever you do it!

Episode 14 leaked in China on-demand. Full English HD, with Chinese subtitles on the bottom not too intrusive.

I've made a spoiler thread for it. it won't air on DF until August 3.

Episodes 15-18 have gone up in the same Chinese source over the past two Fridays. Yayponies has even found a way to get rid of the Chinese subtitles, so it's a very clean, NTSC corrected, HD release. That's all of August's Discovery Family episodes, as well as all the episodes we currently have synopses for.

At this rate, the show will be over in four weeks' time for those preferring to watch this way. I'll keep making early episode threads etc. as laid out in the OP.

Eh we too old for this show crowd really don't count anyhow. If we see it early it's not doing much to anything long as we don't spoil it for the kids watching it. (Or the kids who are now teens or adults jesus time passes and it suuuuuucks.)

It's a little bittersweet knowing its gonna end soon and watching it earlier might end it faster but well the show got 6 extra seasons more than intended plus movies and specials and spinoffs. Better than doing a Simpsons I would say.

I am grateful that the episodes are released early. They give me the choice to see them whenever I want instead of eagerly awaiting for a livestream to catch it live. The feeling of FOMO and the stress of finding time for the livestream and praying that my connection breaks down is absolutely gone.
