Saturday TV Marathons

I’ll be traveling for the next couple of weeks. Compiling the marathons list days ahead of time is not easily done, so this section will resume upon my return when I’ll be back to putting the picks together each day instead of ahead of time. Do you find the daily marathons list helpful?

I don’t talk about much more than TV here, but this trip is sort of TV related. I met my wife (@MrsTVaholic) at the ATX Television Festival in Austin, TX a few years back and she subsequently moved from Toronto, Ontario to Seattle, Washington and we got married. Since neither of our parents could travel due to health reasons, the plan was to get married here and then a few months later there. But, COVID had other plans and thus the second wedding kept getting postponed and now a little over two years after the first one we are finally having the second one. So, we’ll be getting married again in front of her family and many friends we made at the festival. We will also be heading back to the ATX festival in June. It is returning after two years of virtual panels.
