Memorial Day Marathons: What To Watch Monday, Including ‘Band Of Brothers,’ ‘ER,’ & More

Memorial Day has arrived, and with it comes a wide selection of TV marathons for popular comedies, dramas, reality shows, and movies.

As they do with many holidays, TV channels are airing marathons of beloved shows and movies for those stuck without plans on Memorial Day. Some marathons are all-day affairs while others only take place in the morning, the afternoon, or the evening. Regardless, there’s plenty of quality content to choose from on this Memorial Day, depending on your particular mood.

Of course, in the age of binge-watching, on demand services, and home video, TV marathons may start becoming obsolete in coming years. There are plenty of shows and movies to watch right at your fingertips on Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Instant Video, and many channel-based on demand services. Yet, many channels are airing shows and movies that aren’t readily available on streaming services, so there’s still plenty of content worth checking out on this Memorial Day weekend.
