It was pointed out to me yesterday that I hadn’t mentioned what happened to the lists of TV marathons. I didn’t realize until I was already down here in San Diego for Comic Con that I didn’t have everything on my laptop that I have on my desktop back home, which made it difficult to create the lists. So, they will return as of tomorrow, as I return home today.
