Watch as many comedies as you can (or want to).
Virtually all scenes should contain characters participating in humorous or comedic experiences. The comedy can be exclusively for the viewer, at the expense of the characters in the title, or be shared with them. Subjective. (from imdb)
A comedy do not have to be funny to you, but the intension from the filmmakers is that it is funny to them. As is subjective, I'll allow anything classified as comedy on imdb (unless it's clearly a mistake) and everything on the four official comedy lists. If you find something that is neither, ask. Movies that are "so bad that they're good" are not comedies unless that was the original intent.
- A feature film (anything over 40 minutes) counts as one entry
- A total of 60 minutes of short films count as one entry
- For mini-series, an episode over 40 minutes counts as one entry, or else they have to be added up to 60 minutes.
- For TV series, you will only get one - 1 - point for watching a complete series from start to finish, yes, every single episode.
- Rewatches are allowed and good for the soul.
- Challenge runs from September 1st till September 30th 2018 (your local time)
Please post original title (and aka if you want) and year. That makes it easier for me to create bonus stats during the challenge.
Also if you're in the top 3, please post regularly (at least every second day). So that the competiton stays fair.
Finally, you have 72 hours to post the final results in this thread. So when I post my standings October 4th those will be final.
