10 WEEKS and Counting

We are in unchartered waters here. We have never waited more than ten weeks for a new episode. In fact, since 90% of us discovered Tiki Bar TV from or because of Steve Jobs plug of the show in October '06, we have not had to wait mor than 6 weeks and usually only 4. So what does this all mean? I will try a seance this weekend and try to find out.

On December 5th the new episode came out, "Red Handed" it was released 35 days after "Dry Halloween". The show's have been release now usually at the 4 week mark or the five week mark. This means that episode 24 should have been expected to come out by January 10th.

The time between them has varied quite a bit. If you recall, the time between episodes for the initial spat of shows was less than a week each. This now seems unbelievable. Then came the long breaks following it. If we concentrate on the production speed for the shows only after Steve Jobs blew the lid off the operation, you will find that the wait between episodes is very close to 4 weeks each.

I believe that Dr. Tiki still would like a twice-a-month schedule and that that would be the right for maximum crowd pleasing, but I have concluded that a once-a-month is both practical and pleasant.

And now the lame graphic:

I call this one "A Rainbow on a Sunny Autumn Day". In it, I try to express on one axis the number of days we waited for an episode, and the name of the episode that we eventually got to see. The colors represent my mood throughout the period. I hope you like it. Prints are available at the gift shop.

Here's an interesting question that only attentive viewers will be able to answer:

What is a "lala" and on which episodes is it mentioned?

Still anxiously waiting for the next episode.

Yeah it's definitely high up there on the scale. 17 weeks I think.

And udim a "Lala" is spilling your drink out of your mouth. Mostly seen in the first few episodes when Lala gets severely intoxicated. ;)
