I don't do cable, I've got 'em on Blu-ray, and NYE means the almost-annual viewing of "Rudolph's Shiny New Year" (also on DVD).
And, since I grew up in Boston, the traditional viewing of Three Stooges until the midnight hour nears...

(Followed, also traditionally, by the Marx Bros. on NYD.)

Midnight Sun is once again not airing at midnight! Arg!
Er, wouldn't "The Masks" make more sense?

Not really, since they only had to wear the masks until midnight. The thing of it is, it was more of an added tradition. Up until about two years ago, SyFy would always air Midnight Sun at midnight. It always felt special that after seeing the ball drop, I could switch over and that would be the episode that would welcome the new year.

Yeah, that does sound like a cool tradition (airing Midnight at midnight) if a bit creepy...but certainly, uh, “different.” ;).

Also, not to get too grisly, but in “Shadow Play” (where Adam Grant relives his “impression” of death row over and over again) his execution via the electric chair is also always at midnight. (“Why do these things always happen at midnight?” one character actually asks lol.)
Pinky, are you pondering what I’m pondering?

I think so, Brain, but if we didn’t have ears, wouldn’t we sort of look like weasels?

Well, midnight is the witching hour. Do-do-do-do. ;)

Wow. Rod died in 1975. That's a long time to be a widow.

Yeah, it’s really sad. :(. I think his daughter is still around, though. She wrote this book about him some years ago. Would love to read it sometime.

Have we decided if this is any good or not? I don’t want to commit to a new series if it isn’t worth it...so much stuff to see!

That’s what I thought. I haven’t generally heard the best things about this new version. If I see it about I’ll give a couple a watch and see, but if I miss it then no great shakes. I need to cut back on my serial shows anyway, especially with D+ coming in a couple of months.

Guess it's a small consolation the UK's getting the reboot at all, since evidently the original isn't available to watch or stream anywhere!? I couldn't live without a dose once in awhile, especially the marathons! :shock:

That's the beauty of a disc collection. :) Always on-demand in my home.
