I’m sad to say that cable has ruined an excellent movie for me: Groundhog Day. I used to watch Groundhog Day every time I saw it on. Because it’s always on, I watched it again and again and again, which started to feel much like a certain movie that escapes me right now. Now it’s gotten to the point that every time I flip through the channels and see Groundhog Day — which is every time — I get a little disgusted, like the kid whose father locked him in the closet with a box of cigars. Does it really have to be on all the time?
A bold statement: I believe that Groundhog Day is, hands down, the most-aired movie on television. I wonder if there’s a way I could get to the bottom of this.
