  1. I hope they will be in that super crystal-clear HD again this year. I was so amazed at how good the shows looked the first time I saw them that way!

  2. My favorite, The Howling Man, at 4am? Looks like I’m starting early.

  3. I usually drop off after Midnight, but I do like “Of Late I Think of Cliffordville”

  4. God I look forward to this all year! “The Night of the Meek” and “A Passage for Trumpet” are my favs!

  5. The past 2 years they’ve extended the marathon to be more than 2 days. I was hoping that would happen this year but so far that doesn’t appear to be the case (Friday night and Saturday make for good days to extend the marathon). Please change the appearance

  6. SyFy network get creative. If the reason you’re not extending the marathon is due infommercials/paid programming at night, do a mini-marathon B4/after (depending on the year) the marathon. Trust that you’ll plenty of fans that will appreciate it. While your at it, show the full episodes even if that mean that they are 35-40 minutes long.

  7. Gregory Tyson

    The “Bard” is the single worst episode of the series and should not be a part of the Marathon. How about they toss it out for episodes of considerable substance that for whatever reason always get excluded — like “The Last Flight” and “A World of Difference”? And if you want to include Season Four episodes why not one of the good ones like “Miniature,” “In his Image” or “The Parallel”?

    • Yeah, they always make a few very questionable decisions in my view. I’m a big fan of “The Last Flight,” btw. But everyone is different — even “The Bard” has its defenders! With any luck, they’ll show more of your favorites during the July 4 marathon.
