    MikeBlack labber sent me a message with a headsup for
    Marx Bros + 3 Stooges TV Marathons
    ( mike, my private message reply keeps showing "error" --- so
    publicly -- thanks ! )
    *
    I watched "Coconuts" Marx Bros = (" Sir, this suitcase is empty ?" --- "It'll be full when I leave !" )
    several "Honeymooners" episodes......( "That does it,Norton !...get outta here !" )
    *
    And somehow - I found a channel currently running "Combat" episodes -
    used to be my favorite, as a kid.......some "future" great writers + directors worked on that show.

    What did you all watch ?

    NCIS! Anytime they marathon it on the weekend I end up glued to the TV even though theyhave a handful of epsiodes in high rotation. And I found myself sucked into the SVU marathon, too, even though I only kind of like that show.

    Twilight Zone. Been watching it since I was little and it still freaks me out a bit.

    Game of Thrones. Actually, we're still working on the last of seasons 4&5.

    I wanted to get HBO when it came out, but hubby couldn't be swayed. But then something he wanted to see was on HBO, so we finally got it. He came home from work on the 24th with the plague and only wanted to sit on the couch and watch TV. Okay then, I get to pick the show. :wink2: It's okay though, because he's super hooked and nerding out over every aspect of the show. I'm just enjoying the ride. Only problem is that now that I have his cold, he's back and work and doesn't want me to watch any of the episodes without him. :haha:

    Fitting 50 hours of HDTV on our older Tivo was a challenge and it yelled at us constantly about shows that wouldn't get recorded. He panicked a bit when football wasn't going to record, but we watched enough over the holiday that everything was fine and we've got plenty of time to finish the show before season 6. :thumbsup:

    I watched a little of the Twilight Zone one. Wish I had known about the Combat one. I watched that show religiously as a kid. I did find some episodes of it on Youtube, but have only watched one so far.

    During the holiday week, HBO had a GoT marathon and AMC had a Walking Dead marathon. Had both on at different times. I love marathon watching, even if its a show I have seen. Its a good way to have something on, get some work done, but still know when to look up and catch the best parts
