We here at DiChope you have a happy, and safe, 4th of July weekend. After all the food and fireworks, here are some of the specials and marathons you can check out on television.
Something I look forward to every year, SyFywill air it’s annual ‘The Twilight Zone‘ marathon starting at 8 a.m. Unfortunately, it won’t be airing all weekend. But we’ve seen William Shatneryelling about a monster on the wing of the plane a million times already.
We hope you have a safe and happy 4th! Enjoy your burnt hot dogs and 2nd degree sparkler burns. If you’re chillin’ at home for the holiday, you have quite a few patriotic movies and tv marathons to look forward to.
AMC: Watch Will Smith save the world in ‘Independence Day’ at 8 and 11 p.m. You can also catch the channel’s ‘The Walking Dead‘ marathon starting on Saturday and ending Sunday night with a special edition of ‘The Talking Dead‘ with the show’s cast.

Spike TV: The network for dudes is showing the ‘Band of Brothers‘ mini-series from 9 a.m to 6 p.m.
SyFy: I’ll be watching the annual ‘Twilight Zone’ marathon starting at 8 a.m. Remember when Syfy decided to show ‘The Greatest American Hero‘ instead a couple of years ago? Don’t ever do that again, Syfy.
