TBS’s “A Christmas Story” 24 hour annoying marathon
Every damn year TBS decides to play the classic 1983 Christmas movie “A Christmas Story” for 24 fucking hours.
I seriously cannot be the only one out there that gets annoyed by this? I of course just simply just change the channel and watch something else anyways. There are plenty of other great movies on during the day as well as the many sports games that I watch each and every year too, Go Lakers and the Chicago Bears!
But does this one movie need to be played all damn day long by TBS? I do not think so. I will not argue that it is not a good or classic movie, I know it is. I do enjoy watching it maybe 2 or 3 times while more than likely not a full sit through. But does it need to be played for 24 hours? I can see maybe playing it every few hours while TBS plays another great classic movie in between it.
What TBS should do is mix in a bunch of Christmas movies and do a 48 hour marathon (or stick to 24 hours) with movies such as “Christmas Vacation (1989)” “The Santa Clause (1994)“, “Home Alone (1990)“, “Babes in Toyland (1986)” (like TBS use to play), “Miracle on 34th Street (1984)“, “Scrooged (1988)” as well as many other great and classic movies to choose from.
Note: I especially love watching both Chevy Chase in “Christmas Vacation” and Tim Allen in “The Santa Clause” movies all the time. I do like Home Alone too. Who does not love these specific classics?
So what do you think? Would you rather have a mix of great and classic Christmas, especially all or most from the list I mentioned played for either 24 or 48 hours in rotation or just “A Christmas Story” played all day long?
