BSG webisode factorial

So, you may or may not know that is hosting a set of ten Battlestar Galactica “webisodes” to lead up to the Season 3 premiere.  They’re being released every Tuesday and Thursday, and at 3-4 minutes apiece they’ll add up to (approximately) a full episode worth by the time they’re all released.  From the quality of the first one, I can guess that they’ll be just as compelling to watch as any episode might be.

So here’s the thing.  I just had a thought about how to watch them in true rabid-fan form: watch all of the released webisodes each time one is released.  That would mean watching the first two tonight, then the first three next Tuesday, and the first four on Thursday… and then watching the whole shebang on Thursday night before the premiere.  Is that insane?

I’ve already thought about re-watching the last few four or five episodes of Season 2 again, and that’s a lot longer than all of those webisodes put together.  Actually, with the factorial counted in, it’s about the same length.  Still, though…  what do you think?
