It may be one of the most beloved movies of all time.  And you can’t get through the holiday without watching it at least once.  It’s the late comedy genius Harold Ramis’s Groundhog Day, and 27 years after the movie first put us through hundreds of timeloops, this Groundhog Day the one and only Bill Murray made his return as the perpetual weatherman Phil Connors.  Despite the ending of the movie, he found his way to being unstuck in time again, thanks to a commercial for Jeep for today’s Super Bowl.

Joining Phil in Punxsutawney, PA, again is insurance salesman Ned Ryerson (Stephen Tobolowsky) and townie Buster Green, played again by Murray’s brother Brian Doyle-Murray.

Tonight the intrepid Winchester brothers take a bold step into one of the few paranormal realms they haven’t yet visited:  the animated world of the original Scooby Gang and their Mystery Machine, as Supernatural enters its strangest crossover yet Will some villainous ogre be unmasked by film’s end and say that famous phrase, “I would have gotten away with it, too, if it hadn’t been for you meddling kids!”?  Who wouldn’t want to see Sam and Dean join forces to sleuth out a mystery with Shaggy, Scoob, Daphne, Velma, and Fred?

Jinkies!
