  1. im watchin friends because as everyone knows its the best sitcom ever.

    • Amen

      • yeah..NO. Its yuppie garbage

        Now Cheers is the greatest sitcom of all time.

  2. Hey guys, I’m on mobile, so I can’t see it, but could someone tell me what channel the Star Wars marathon is on?

    Thanks, I really appreciate it.

    • Spike. Cause when is there never a Star Wars marathon on spike.


    • Spike channel!

      • Or what Cam said, ha.

  3. Watching Punkin Chunkin on Science right now. Not sure why, but I LOVE this stuff!! (Kari Byron from Mythbusters doesn’t hurt!)

    FYI: You have the Friday Star Wars marathon showing Revenge of the Sith as Part II instead of III. :-) Also, why in the world would Spike waste time showing Ep I TWICE?

  4. Twilight Zone marathon for me.

    Rod Serling!!

  5. Love my family
