This weekend’s Catchy Binge features a marathon of Lost TV series. Check out the Catchy Binge this weekend to see 84 hard-to-find series from the early 90s, Brooklyn Bridge, Ferris Bueller, and Square Pegs.
Lost TV on The Catchy Binge starts on January 27 at midnight and runs through January 28. The binge kicks off at midnight with Brooklyn Bridge’s “Death in Brooklyn” when Sophie demands everyone attend a family funeral, which is, unfortunately, the same day as Alan’s big date at a Brooklyn Dodgers game. Binge Brooklyn Bridge through Saturday into Sunday when the Lost TV marathon switches to the pilot episode of Ferris Bueller at 10:00 a.m. ET as the titular character starts a new school year and finds a new crush.
At 4:30 p.m. ET on Sunday, watch the pilot of Square Pegs to see if Patty gets her chance to “click with the right clique” as a freshman. It runs through 11:30 p.m. when the school’s all a-buzz when a quiz show host visits Weemawee High. The binge bleeds into Monday morning with more Square Pegs followed by additional episodes of Ferris Beuller.
Brooklyn Bridge is a sitcom set in 1956 and follows 14-year-old Alan Silver’s life, which revolves around family, the synagogue, and the Brooklyn Dodgers. The show ran for two seasons from 1991 to 1993 and is loosely based on series creator Gary David Goldberg’s childhood. It won a Golden Globe for Best Television Comedy or Musical and was nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Comedy Series. It starred Danny Gerard, Marion Ross, Louis Zorich, Amy Aquino, Peter Friedman, Matthew Louis Siegel, Jenny Lewis, and Constance McCashin. It was put on “hiatus” in 1992 due to low ratings and has struggled to make its way to DVD and streaming since the turn of the century.
Ferris Bueller is a one-season sitcom that aired from 1990 to 1991 based on the feature film Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. The show follows the high-school life of Ferris Bueller and his friends, straying from the film’s canon. It starred Charlie Schlatter, Richard Riehle, Sam Freed, Jennifer Aniston, Ami Dolenz, Brandon Douglas, Judith Kahan, and Cristine Rose.
Square Pegs follows Patty Greene and Laren Hutchinson, two awkward teenage girls desperate to fit in at their new high school. The series starred Sarah Jessica Parker, Amy Linker, Merrit Butrick, John Femia, Tracy Nelson, Jami Gertz, Claudette Wells, and Jon Caliri.
Catchy Comedy hosts an extensive collection of classic sitcoms and variety shows spanning the 50s through the 90s. Each weekend, the channel hosts The Catchy Binge featuring a series, or three in this case, such as The Andy Griffith Show, I Love Lucy, and Laverne & Shirley.
