TV marathons today May 31 2010

People do a lot of things in the US on Memorial Day.   Some certainly go to parades, some have picnics, some go to ceremonies honoring veterans and the fallen.

Some watch TV.

Or, you know, set up their DVRs to record marathons.  🙂

With the ability to just watch entire seasons of TV shows at your will through streaming Netflix (and the Roku box, even your Wii), I don’t know how long TV marathons will be a big thing.  I actually think it will be for years…there’s a difference between selecting a season to watch, and just stumbling on to it and being trapped.  😉

I’m going to be pretty generous with the term “marathon”…let’s say, more than two episodes in a row. 

Bewitched on TV Land

Clean House on Style (the most frightening show I’ve ever avoided watching) 😉
