Groundhog Day liveblog  FEB 02 2013

In celebration of Groundhog Day and the 20th anniversary of the release of Groundhog Day, the classic movie directed by Harold Ramis and starring Bill Murray and Andie MacDowell, we're going to be liveblogging the movie starting at 8pm EST tonight.

If you'd like to watch along, you have several options: you can buy or rent on iTunes, buy or rent it on Amazon, find it on Bittorrent or Usenet, or stream it on Netflix (not sure if it's actually available). If you're awesome, you might already own a copy of the movie on DVD or Blu-ray. AMC is also showing Groundhog Day several times today but not at 8 so you'll have to DVR it earlier. Check local listings as they say. There will be commercials in the AMC version, so you'll get behind every time there's a break, which is a bummer but not an insurmountable issue.

However you choose to watch it, queue up the movie at the blank screen just an instant before the clouds appear and at 08:00:00 pm EST on this clock, push play. Ok, cool. We'll see you right back here at 8 pm tonight?

(Oh, and Bill, if you're out there, we'd love to have you join in. Send me an email.)

An update: Ok, the liveblog has concluded, the archive is here. Also, Bill never emailed. :(
