As the 2012 year comes to a close, and another date of supposed doom, Syfy channel is embracing it the only way they know how.
With holiday and New Year’s TV marathons! That’s how.
First is their celebration of the end of the world.
“On Thursday, December 20 at 8PM with the End of the World festival, concluding Friday, December 21 at 3AM, highlighted by the Thursday night specials Countdown to Doomsday (12AM) and 2012: Startling New Secrets (2AM).”
If we survive through that, there’s always the Star Trek movie marathon:
“The continuing adventures of the Starship Enterprise journeys from 10:30AM-2AM on Saturday, December 22, and 11AM-11:30PM on Sunday, December 23.”
But wait, there’s more!
Do you remember hearing about a Doctor Who spin-off that was in the making some time back? It had to do with the mechanical K-9 robot unit. Well, now you can see what’s become of that splendid sounding idea…
“Making its U.S. television premiere, K-9, a comedy/adventure series focusing on the adventures of the robot dog K-9 from the iconic series Doctor Who, blending computer animation and live action, airs on Christmas Day Tuesday, December 25 from 10AM-11PM, with a marathon of all episodes in the series.”
Classic Twilight Zone Pilgrimage
And if all else fails, you can always plunge yourself into the realm of possibilities… By diving into the annual New Year’s TV marathon of The Twilight Zone on Syfy.
“The Twilight Zone annual New Year’s holiday marathon ushers in 2013 Monday, December 31 from 8AM-4:30AM, and on Tuesday, January 1 from 6AM-5AM.”
I can’t wait to hear it! The opening monologue from the first season of The Twilight Zone…
“There is a fifth dimension, beyond that which is known to man.
It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition. And, it lies between the pit of man’s fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call the Twilight Zone.”
