The Honeymooners and Twilight Zone Marathons, Binge Watching, and Streaming in 2021

Wednesday, December 29, 2021

The Twilight Zone marathon on SyFy and The Honeymooners marathon on WPIX-11 have become annual fixtures on New Year's Eve in my household.  What better way to close out the year than watching some classic television on a quiet evening at home?  If you throw in some Chinese food, my wife and I can't think of a better way to celebrate the end of one year and the new beginnings of the next!

We'll comb through the schedule and set the DVR to record our favorites and then watch as many as we can.  The binge-watching gets pushed aside momentarily for about 5 minutes when the ball drops in Times Square, but then it's immediately back to the Honeymooners until we fall asleep.  We'll spend the next few days combing through the DVR to watch the episodes we love before our annual viewings of Breaking Bad and The Sopranos begin.  Hey, we're creatures of habit.  

For many, these annual marathons have become a yearly tradition.  Why are these kinds of marathons so beloved?  

I for sure enjoy a good marathon, but why do so many of us feel nostalgic about them?  Why do so many of us still go out of our way to watch all or parts of them?

Retro Repost - My Top 5 Favorite The Honeymooner's Episodes

Thursday, December 31, 2020

 Let's finish the year off strong with another Retro Repost! 
Last year I wrote about my Top 5 favorite "The Honeymooner's" episodes, and as we approach the WPIX New Year's Eve "The Honeymooner's" marathon, I'd like to share this with those that may have missed it last year or would like to read it again to get in the mood!  

If you get WPIX, or can find it online, check out this year's marathon starting at 11:00PM Eastern on December 31st!  

My Top 5 New Year's Honeymooners Marathon Episodes

Friday, December 27, 2019

With Christmas now in the rear view, it's time to look ahead to the next holiday... New Year's Eve!  Not quite the barn burner in my house, it's often a quiet night my wife and I look forward to eating Chinese take out and watching marathons on TV... and often going to bed at about 12:05AM.

One such marathon here in New York is the Jackie Gleason classic "The Honeymooners" on famed New York network WPIX (Channel 11).

WPIX will routinely air episodes late at night that I'll catch if I happen to be awake at 2 or 3 in the morning.  Sometimes they will also air mini-marathons on other holidays such as Thanksgiving.  However, as my wife said this past Thanksgiving... "The Honeymooners is for New Years."
