Because this is a site devoted to the writing of Alias Smith and Jones Fiction, chat on Saturdays will be a course of study that will consist of informative topic discussions related to the influence of the episodes on fan fiction writing.
The format will be similar to a never-ending symposium utilizing the Socratic method of questions, encouraging each participant to develop an awareness. Not of anything in particular, just an awareness.
The course of study is open to all. Many of the subjects are of general interest, not merely of interest to writers.
Long Johns, Henleys
The focus will be on who wears them, and in which episodes. How they wear them.
Not to exclude characters other than the boys.

For preparatory study it is recommended that participants watch one or more of the following:
The Pilot = HH in saloon
