If you don't want to watch football over the next 4 days you are screwed. Normally I would tell you to head over to TCM or IFC for some fine movie action but it's slim pickins my friends. TCM has (lamely) decided to schedule a 3 day Andy Hardy marathon starring everyone's favorite short actor, Mickey Rooney, as the misguided but lovable Andy Hardy. One or two Andy Hardy movies is fine, but several days of it is overkill. The only thing that piqued my interest on IFC is Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me tomorrow night, and then perhaps their role-playing game documentary, Darkon, on Friday, but the rest of it is shite: how many times a month do you want to broadcast Boogie Nights and Employee of the Month? My advice is to download some flicks or head to your local rental place, or, if you're as harried as I am, I use this time to catch up on the month of stuff I've Tivo'd but haven't had time to watch. Happy Thanksgiving!
