So have you heard about the Forever Knight marathon?

FK--Nick



Now I know how I'm going to spend my Labor Day.

That's right folks, Forever Knight is returning to television. Chiller TV will run an all day marathon of the first 15 episodes this Labor Day.

Season 1 squee! There's so much to look forward to, even though technically I already own the DVDs.

There's a certain something that I get by watching the show live with commercials thrown in. And I adore season 1. Nick has that crazy black shirt with the white stripes. Yep, the same one the promo department thought was snazzy enough to preserve for posterity in publicity promos. Schanke had Elvis sideburns. Natalie's lipstick would match her fushia suits. LaCroix had Billy Idol hair. And hey, "Fan Kill"! Nick and LaCroix as leather wearing rock stars. "It's time to rock!"

So when's the last time we got a series marathon anyway?. I remember the Sci-Fi Channel Valentine's Day marathon that Ger hosted back in the late 90s. And then there were the Sci-Fi Channel Chain Reaction marathons they'd air around 2004.

It doesn't look like FK is joining the lineup just yet but I think it's safe to say it's definitely in the series' future. Now if only they'd give some on air promotion.

So who else is watching? You know you want to.

Psst! They're going to do another marathon in October. Same episodes plus "Only the Lonely" over two days. :-)

Thank you so much for sharing the news! I don't get the Chiller channel, and had no idea this was happening. First fifteen episodes is... DK through DFF! Mmmmmm, first season.

I unfortunately can't marathon the day away on Monday, but if you have one or two episodes in mind that you would most like to discuss, I'll be sure to make room for them from my DVDs.

Yes, it's been about five years since the last marathon in the US. I think that SPACE (in Canada) had a marathon more recently than that, however.

I think I'm going to take you up on that. I'm hoping to get a post together for the weekend. It had been such a long time since I'd marathoned through several episodes rather than cherry picking episodes for canon research.
