I was checking the schedule on the SyFy website for the TZ marathon list for July 4th weekend. And to my dismay, there ISN'T one! I know, I know SyFy fucks up the episodes with their cuts and we can watch our DVDs, but still...

Even to just have it on in the background, TZ marathon is a staple for me New Year's and 4th of July. How the f@%k are you going to drop that tradition? Instead, we get a marathon of The Greatest American Hero. f@%king bullshit. That's my rant of the day.

Umm, WTF indeed.............. :wtf:

I suppose I can dig TGAH in a small "flashback to childhood" way, but still.
This kinda sucks.

Lets see - GAH or TZ ...I can tell ya who the majority of people would watch. I'm betting 2 things occurred here. (1) The Death of Robert Culp helped spawn this decision. (2) Mill Creek Entertainment acquired the rights to series and released season 1 & 2 back in May. {Side Note: Anchor Bay discontinued their run (all 3 seasons) in 2009.} I guess syfy had some serious money thrown at them to help draw interest to the series.

Now, nothing against Greatest American Hero, but when it comes to Marathons - and great TV - Twilight Zone is a staple for 4th of July, Thanksgiving, or New Years. Perhaps if SyFy and others would stop butchering them, they'd get a better response. Why not just do the occasional pop-up at the bottom and throw the commercial there and not cut 4 ~ 6 minutes of a 24 minute show?

Blasphemy......................

No matter what you choose, you gotta slip in a couple episodes of TZ, just for old times sake.

I am going to try this year as well. :dance:

I am going to rewatch most TZs again, on either my DVD sets, or online, better than cut episodes peppered with boring commercials.

I'm watching 5th season now, may go in reverse to 1st.

Peace to all the PTE gang!!!
