Today is Groundhog Day, a weird holiday brought over to Pennsylvania by creepy German people hundreds of years ago.
As you get older, the holiday means absolutely nothing to you, except maybe for fond memories of the 1993 movie, “Groundhog Day” starring Bill Murray. Great movie. Bill Murray might be the funniest person to ever live. Funny idea, too: getting trapped on Groundhog Day in an annoying, podunk town whose only claim to fame is a massive celebration of that holiday, and being forced to relive that day for eternity.
But AMC has decided to ruin the movie for everyone but half-wits and children by showing the movie over and over again all day today in honor of both the holiday and the movie’s concept. We get it, AMC, you have some super awesome shows on at night like “Breaking Bad” and “The Walking Dead,” but you don’t deserve to keep them if you fill an entire day of programming with the worst gimmick ever. If Bill Murray weren’t such an awkward hipster and bothered to own a tv, he’d be sickened by you right now.
