It's better when there's a show or something so you can make commentary.
I don't know if the chatroom was a suggestion to replace the forums. I think a chat would be cool, its just a matter of how to do it and in what form and how to moderate it.
The other issue would be to be how restrictive. When I used to hang out with the Rational Response Squad guys, they had a chat room on stickam but it would either go into a theist/atheist debate that would go no where (though many would argue if any of them ever do go anywhere, but sometimes they would spirial down to insults) or the immature people who would go there and if other people were trying to have a good discussion, it would be ruined by others.
Its a cool idea, just easier said than done from what I have seen in the past.
