I-Is that a physical TV guide?


KnightOfTerra OP t1_j63s0y0 wrote

Yes, it is. I have to buy it for my mother, she struggles with the TV one.


klemmo t1_j677qcg wrote

Same. Are you constantly fetching milk & prescriptions too?


KnightOfTerra OP t1_j67r2oj wrote

Oh, constantly ordering prescriptions! Thankfully she gets them delivered, otherwise I'd never be away from the chemist!


McLower t1_j695pgu wrote

You’re a good person, sounds like your mom is lucky to have you!


KnightOfTerra OP t1_j697xuv wrote

Aww, thank you! That means a lot! I'm actually her full-time unpaid carer so it all comes with the job.

I live that life every day too. Like I am living the same day over-and-over again.

Did anyone outside of the US know what Groundhog Day even was before that movie existed?


Megatea t1_j65yxm4 wrote

I don't think so. It would certainly have been obscure pub quiz knowledge if they did. It's a good celebration though. Glad that it promoted it. Now I try to watch the film on groundhog day and check the forecast from the groundhog. He's basically as accurate at predicting the end of winter in the UK as he is in the USA.


McNozzo t1_j664gd6 wrote

No definitely not. Was it generally known in the US before the movie?


nvanalfen t1_j66ydc5 wrote

Yes. It's one of those "holidays" that we all know about in the US, but never think about until someone mentions it and we remember it exists.


RPDRNick t1_j674oub wrote

I assume it was, but I was raised in Pennsylvania, so that may cloud my judgment on that.


gsb999 t1_j66fm1p wrote

Wiarton Will exists in Canada and has done so for as long as I can remember, so yes, people outside the US do know about groundhog day.


andybno1 t1_j64a0yt wrote

it's a yearly tradition they started maybe 5 years ago


Zurc_bot t1_j64u41w wrote

They should have made a sequel and just played the first movie

Honestly that would be an amazing troll and I would support it.

FUNNY! It took me a second, but it will make my day! Thanks for sharing…!

Reminds me of the fact that the volume on the BBC iPlayer goes to 11 after they showed Spinal Tap a few years ago.

Imagine you really live in Groundhog Day. You could watch Groundhog Day nonstop for the rest of your life

This is exactly what MisterEffenWhite's schedule looks like on February 2nd.

I signed up for Zoom (maybe Voom) satellite service years ago because they were one of the firsts with HD TV. They did not last long but they played Groundhog Day back to back on every single channel for 24 hours.


phred_666 t1_j66jxjg wrote

In the US, the channel AMC is doing the same thing. Running the movie “Groundhog Day” over and over starting at 11:00 AM ET.


IveGotDMunchies t1_j66re8p wrote

Cable tv will have it on the whole month of february

Sounds like a typical Saturday for me from age 4-6

I hope the groundhog tells us spring is coming early


solidpeyo t1_j63zbju wrote

I'm surprised people still watch cable or any kind of tv. For me is all streaming via the internet.


PhaedrusC t1_j67q0ho wrote

I still had satellite tv up to about 10 years ago, switched first to torrents then gradually over to streaming. (I still torrent some movies and sport events)

Over here, many people still have satellite, and it's a bit of a puzzle since the cost is quite high. Only (sort of) excuse they have is that it has a whole lot of live sport coverage, I just download the few events I want to watch a day or two after, works for me. Outside of the sport the shows are pretty pathetic, compared with streaming options.
