The Honeymooners and Twilight Zone revisited on New Year's Eve

I wanted to write a nice little article for New Year's with reflections on the past and the hopes and dreams that a brand new year brings.  Something sappy and meaningful; a written piece along the opening lines of one of my favorite songs, "In My Life," by the Beatles. 

Maybe next year.  I've been taking a break from writing during the stressful Christmas rush, and most of my Christmas articles, minus the Frasier one, were written over a month ago.  

My wife and I truly enjoyed the wonderful time we spent with family this year in our new home, and now, with the blink of an eye, New Year's Eve is upon us.  With that comes a few things in my household.  

We like to hunker down on a cold night and stay home.  No parties or big bashes for us.  Besides, we're old now, and with a 2-year-old, we'd be home by 7 anyway.  

Second, we like to order and stuff ourselves full of Chinese takeout.  That might be tricky this year as we've yet to find an acceptable Chinese food restaurant that does takeout in our new hometown.  Where we used to live, we were within walking distance of some really good food, but up here, the Chinese food has been more miss than hit.   

And lastly, we like to watch The Honeymooners on WPIX (New York's Channel 11) right at the stroke of midnight before heading to bed shortly after that.  PIX 11 isn't on YouTube TV for us any longer, now that they've caught on to the fact we've moved.  Pix does stream from their website, so I can always just cast it up on the screen.  We usually DVR the rest of the mini-marathon and enjoy it over the next few days, but we'll have to skip that this year.

We also like to DVR our favorite Twilight Zone episodes from the annual Twilight Zone marathon on SyFy.  If you'd like, you can go back and read last year's article about both marathons.  The article went crazy in popularity (for my little site, anyway) and covers why we consider marathons important, how they cause some nostalgia for us older folk, and why these two are important to me.  

Please CLICK HERE to read that article.  If you're looking for even more to read about myself and The Twilight Zone, you can check out an article from 2020 that features my Top 10 Twilight Zone episodes by CLICKING HERE.  I also posted my favorite Honeymooners episodes in 2019, so CLICK HERE if you'd like to check that out, too!

Below, I've included the tv schedule for both the WPIX Honeymooners Marathon and the SyFy Twilight Zone one.  Both schedules were ripped directly from their respective websites, so if there are errors... blame them :) 

Happy New Year!

  1. THANK YOU SO MUCH! When PIX left our market, the Honeymooners marathon that I watched for decades went with it. I scheduled my New Years plans around it until suddenly no more. Now, by happenstance, I read your article and I’m back in business and putting plans in motion with my best friend, my sister. I can’t think of a better way to bring in a sweeter new year than two old friends resurrecting old memories. Thank you. By the way, years ago, a friend gifted me with the entire collection of the Honeymooners but it’s not the same as watching it on PIX11. I’m so happy.

    1. I'm so glad this brought back happy memories for you. I hope you and your sister enjoy reminiscing tonight! Thanks for reading!
