hippie_chick: (twilight zone / monster on the wing!!!)

New Years Eve is upon us once again, and it's time for the Twilight Zone marathon on SyFy! This year, I'm working a kinda long-ish schedule, 11-9:30 (eek!) so I'll miss a few good ones on New Year's Eve. However I'm off New Year's Day and can watch to my heart's delight, plus what I missed I can always queue up on DVD.

Here's the schedule:

Dec 31
Jan 1

My highlights, episodes I think are worth watching! )

I adore the New Year's marathon each year! What are your favorites? Any other recommendations from the schedule?
hippie_chick: (twilight zone / monster on the wing!!!)

My tradition. I look forward to it every year. Who needs crowded parties and drinking till you puke? I'm settling in and ringing in the New Year with a bottle of bubbly, great munchies and Rod Serling!

The full schedule can be found here and here.

And here are my personal highlights, eps I don't miss and don't think you should, either. )

And there you have it. Enjoy my fellow TZ heads!

Wait. SyFy isn't airing a Twilight Zone Marathon for this 4th of July?
You suck for that, SyFy. The Kanamit does not approve.

An email is forthcoming. *nods*

Random observation:

Watching "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet" on the TZ Marathon. I just had to laugh. I never thought of or noticed it before, but when Bill Shatner is talking to his wife telling her that there was a man on the wing of the plane, she gets this really serious, worried expression on her face. The way the lighting and shadows are across her face at that point, her hair, everything, she looks like that thing on the wing!! Seriously I had to laugh. Is that wild or what? LOL!

Bright and early tomorrow morning, at 7am with "The Thirty Fathom Grave", starts the annual New Years Twilight Zone Marathon on Sci-Fi!

Here's where it gets tricky because I like to switch over and watch the ball drop. Wouldn't you know there is a run of most excellent episodes right up through that time?! What to do. LOL!! I'll have the ball drop on in the other room, and sneak in and watch that while TZ is in the living room. Maybe. Haven't decided how I'll work this out yet. Bwahaha!

The Schedule!

Time for another TZ marathon on Sci-Fi! Every year they do one at New Years and one over July 4.

July 3 is Ringo Starr day, I'll be at the Hard Rock most of the day and into the night, so I don't know how much watching I'll do that day, and I am requesting the 4th off so we'll see what happens *crosses fingers* But I'll highlight my favorite, "can't miss" episodes, many of which I've taped and / or have on DVD now... I recommend these.

My July 3 Highlights

9:30 am The Masks
10:30 am The Bewitchin' Pool
11:00 am I Sing The Body Electric
1:30 pm The Invaders (Agnes Moorehead fighting itty bitty space guys! LOVE)
2:00 pm Nightmare as a Child
2:30 pm Eye of the Beholder (this one is a GIVEN, it's shown every single marathon)
4:00 pm The Monsters are Due on Maple Street
5:00 pm Kick The Can (This is the inspiration for the movie "Cocoon")
8:30 pm Nightmare at 20,000 Feet
9:30 pm In The Praise of Pip
10:00 pm Living Doll ("I'm Talky Tina and I'm going to kill you!")
11:30 pm The Obsolete Man (I! AM! NOT! OBSOLETE!)
12:30 am Nothing in the Dark
4:00 am Miniature (I swear this one is great, made me want a really cool doll house)

At 6am they break for Paid Programming for two hours...

My July 4 Highlights

8:00 am Stopover In A Quiet Town
10:00 am To Serve Man ("It's a COOKBOOK!!")
1:00 pm King Nine Will Not Return (this is one I don't get to see often!)
2:30 pm A Most Unusual Camera
3:30 pm The Howling Man
5:00 pm Five Characters In Search of an Exit (kudos, Sci-Fi! You showed this last marathon too, after not having had it on in a long time! YAY! Up there in my top five!)
5:30 pm Midnight Sun
6:30 pm The Last Night of a Jockey (GREAT performance by Mickey Rooney here! Most excellent!)
7:00 pm It's A Good Life (another that's a GIVEN... they almost HAVE to show certain eps, right?)
8:00 pm A Penny For Your Thoughts
8:30 pm Two
10:00 pm Cavender is Coming (Carol Burnett is in this one. I think it's the only real comic ep of TZ I've ever seen. Catch it, it's different from the normal ep and weirdly contains a laugh track!)
11:00 pm A Passage for Trumpet (Jack Klugman was so great in this one!!!)
5:00 am On Thursday We Leave for Home

And a GLARING omission this time! No "Time Enough At Last"!! That surprises me because there are like five eps that make each and EVERY marathon and this is one of them, one of the beloved ones. WOW. *shakes head* But they did counter that with a couple of rare ones that don't get the love as often, so I guess. But... but... BURGESS MEREDITH! *pouts* Ah well, I'll pull out the DVD and make it part of the marathon on my own then! LOL!

What are your favorites?

As usual I'll be glued (well as much as I can be) to the Twilight Zone Marathon on Sci-Fi. It's my tradition and I look forward to it every year. I will actually be off on New Year's Eve so I'll be able to see a bunch. I have to work New Year's Day till 4pm though so I'll be doing some taping of eps I don't have already.

Schedule for December 31

Highlights for me:

A Penny For Your Thoughts (8:30am)
Nightmare As A Child (1:30pm)
I Sing The Body Electric (4pm)
Where Is Everybody? (6pm)
Time Enough At Last (11pm) (MUST always catch this one, even though I have it on my DVD set!!)
Last Stop At Willoughby (1am)

Schedule for January 1

Highlights for me:

The Dummy (9am) *need to tape*
Nothing In The Dark (2:30pm) (no need to tape this, it's on my DVD set)
It's A Good Life (3pm) (no need to tape this, it's on my DVD set)
Midnight Sun (4pm)
Living Doll (4:30pm)
Miniature (5pm)
In The Praise of Pip (6:30pm) (Jack Klugman is brilliant in this! BRILLIANT.)
Eye of the Beholder (7pm) (one of those that they must show every single marathon without fail)
Number Twelve Looks Just Like You (7:30pm)
Night of the Meek (8:30pm) (Art Carney is completely wonderful in this one)
Nightmare at 20,000 Feet (11pm) (another that is shown every single marathon without fail)
The Masks (12am)

I'll be tuning in and out here and there New Years Eve. It's a bunch that day that I have on tape or on DVD already so I'm not really missing much, but will have it on during my favorites above anyway. The rest of the time I'm doing my other tradition that I adore which is watching Marx Brothers movies. After I watch the original Oceans Eleven (Rat Pack FTW!!)

I'll be sticking close to home as usual. I'm not much of a party girl any more, and New Years Eve is not when I like being out and on the road. I'd rather be cozy and comfy with some hors d'oeuvres, chilled bubbly and my TV watchin'. Yay!!! I'm a boring geek, I know. LOL!!

What are your plans for the upcoming party night?

Hopefully 2008 will be a lot better since 2007 was all kinds of suck for so many of us.
