|1. Harry Potter
4. Lord of the Rings
5. A Song of Ice and Fire (since it seems many of us have gotten into them)
6. Batman (super fond of this idea, just saying...)
7. Pokemon? Is anyone but me still into this?
8. Classic literature (super difficult and could get controversial)
The trick is getting something that a core group of us is at least familiar with.
For the ones you've mentioned:
1. I've read the first four books and watched the first four movies. I enjoyed them, but wouldn't call myself a fan.
2. I've played Zelda occasionally, but know next to nothing about the universe.
3. Same as above.
4. Great idea! I could easily see us doing this one. I think most of us have at least read/watched LOTR.
5. I've never read the books or watched the show (it's on my to-do list).
6. I'm only really familiar with the Nolan films, but I have a very basic knowledge of the general universe.
7. I never got into Pokemon. We could do whichever one looks cooler though.
8. That would be awesome! I'm not sure how many here are into classic lit though. And even for a fan like me, there's sooo much I haven't covered yet. So many books, so little time.
We could also do Expanded Universe novels. Or Avatar: The Last Airbender. Or Narnia.
Where sky and water meet,
Where the waves grow sweet,
Doubt not, Reepicheep,
To find all you seek,
There is the utter east.
