New Years Marathons

CmdrTaco posted more than 12 years ago | from the what-do-you-think dept.

Television 539

So for those of us who don't go "Out" for holidays and prefer sitting on our asses, the extended TV theme Marathon is something of a tradition. Besides obvious choices like watching all the Star Wars movies, what sorts of marathon tv endurance tests are people planning? Buffy, Angel, Twin Peaks, Iron Chef? What are you gonna do?

Big D&D Campaign (1)

dolo666 (195584) | more than 12 years ago | (#2767463)

A couple buddies and I expect to bring my DemiGod Assassin character out of retirement for a major throwdown against the cast and crew of Lord of the Rings. Should be a blast. The whole premise of the campaign is that Nekrull, my character, is going to visit Middle Earth from his home in the Forgotten Realms, and steal the ring or win it somehow. Could be interesting... especially with all the beer that is to be consumed in the process. If he succeeds, the ring will leave Middle Earth. If he fails, he will die permanently, never to be played again (until the next stoopid D&D idea comes along).

Since I got TiVo (What? You *don't* have a PVR yet? TiVo, ReplayTV, home built...), marathons just fill up the hard disk a little faster, but I guess I miss out on the 18-hours-on-the-couch feeling :).

And the first marathon I've watched was the Thanksgiving Junkyard Wars special (with the aid of TiVo - took me all weekend to get through all the episodes).

I know that Sci-Fi has the Twilight Zone marathon going again this year. I'll probably get out of the office in time to catch the one about dolls in a trash can- I've seen it like 4 times already. =P

Food Network is doing a marathon tomorrow of the show 'Unwrapped'- it's an excellent look into the history and making of all sorts of foods and candies and what not. Plus it's hosted by Mark 'Double Dare' Sommers.

History Channel is running 'In Search Of...' through 8pm tonight. And if it's your thing, A&E is running Magnum PI through 8pm, followed by a Law & Order marathon.

I'm sure there's more than that; I just looked quickly at today's tv listings.

rlowe69 (74867) | more than 12 years ago | (#2767498)

I may not be going "out", but I'm still going to drink for 6 or 7 hours and get completely trashed with my friends. Now this may seem immature and silly, but it's sometimes good to get that out of your system once in a while and what better night than New Years Eve!

Seriously though, some of us are just coming of horrendous exam schedules and need a good winding down before the next semester starts.

... and yes, I DO need alcohol for this. That's what it's in existence for. Well, winding down and getting nerds laid. LOL. Ok, some nerds. On occasion. Ok, rare occasion. Who? Oh, you know, my friend Joey ... Joe Joe .... yeah, Joey Joe Joe. He lives in Niagra Falls. ;)

Re:DRINKING MARATHON (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 12 years ago | (#2767571)

I love how there always is some sort of justification for binge drinking. "Winding down" is one of the lamest excuses. If you really wanted to wind down, it would be spent quietly. If you want to get drunk, just say so, don't blame it on those horrible exams (oh, the horrors!). Just wait till you face some really stressful situations in life (when you get on with life, those stressful college exams look as tough and important as those stressful three page double-spaced term papers in high school).

I'll be watching my collection of classic Akira Kurosawa films: Seven Samurai, Yojimbo, Sanjuro, High and Low...and yes, The Magnificent Seven. While technically not a Kurosawa film, it is based on the Seven Samurai story, and come on, who can resist Charles Bronson and Yul Brenner kicking Mexican ass?

I believe i'll be going to the SuperBowl with the Patriots in NFL Fever 2002. Apparently the XBox can do something Robert Craft hasn't been able to do in over a decade.

College Football? (1)

Heywood Yabuzof (255017) | more than 12 years ago | (#2767572)


Nobody's watching college football? Sheesh! OK, so it's kind of a mini-marathon, but still...

If a Simpsons or Futurama marathon existed, I would watch it...wait a sec, I do have about 2.5 seasons of Futurama on tape :-)

Call it a marathon if you will, the Christmas Island marathon.

I'm going to sit around all day and play counter-strike.

Honeydew Marathon :-( (2)

I've got a four foot hole in the downstairs wall where a fireplace is going to sit. And some very very cold air is currently being kept at bay by some masonite siding and buffalo board. So, I'll be having a construction marathon once I get home this afternoon. I hope I stay awake till midnight.

Blah.

I don't own a television (1)

diamond0 (456988) | more than 12 years ago | (#2767600)

I don't own a television. People who watch television are continuously being told what to buy and like, who to love and hate, and how to think. I firmly believe I'm a happier person without a TV.

I might do a Douglas Adams marathon tonight. Have you read a good book lately?

Kill your TV.

X-Files! (1)

BMonger (68213) | more than 12 years ago | (#2767606)

There are 4 seasons out on DVD already so you can have an X-Files marathon no problem. It'll only last about 173 days though so you should find something else to watch the 2nd half of the year. Hopefully season 5 will be out by then anyhow... :)

Give up your computer for new year's! That's what I'm doing! (But I can still use the one at work for the slashdrug)

I'll be using one of my Christmas presents... (2, Funny)

I was given the complete Monty Python series collection on DVD. What food would y'all recommend for the session? Coconuts?

Twilight Zone! (2)

invenustus (56481) | more than 12 years ago | (#2767611)

I, unfortunately, will be travelling most of today and tomorrow, so I won't get to see the Twilight Zone marathon on Sci Fi. So all of you need to watch it in honor of me.

What's cool is that instead of doing it strictly in order by episode, they're putting the "classics" on in prime time. Here are the lineups for both nights:

The prime-time lineup: Monday, 8 p.m., "Will the Real Martians Please Stand Up?"; 8:33, "To Serve Man"; 9:05, "The Dummy"; 9:36, "Eye of the Beholder"; 10:09, "The Howling Man."

Tuesday, 8 p.m., "A Penny for Your Thoughts"; 8:33, "The Masks"; 9:06, "The Hitch-Hiker"; 9:37, "It's a Good Life"; 10:09, "The Midnight Sun."

Trivia: Two of the above-mentioned episodes were turned into Simpsons Treehouse of Horror segments - which ones? (Could be more than two, actually, but I know of two for sure.)
