That, 33 Minutes, and Best of Both Worlds are my top three best Sci-Fi TV episodes of all time.

For another time loop film, I recommend the TV movie "12:01", which came out the same year (1993).  It's based on a short film the director had made in 1990 that was nominated for an Oscar.  (Gosh, I wonder how Harold Ramis found his inspiration?)  The writing's not as clever as Groundhog Day and it's got a much smaller budget, but I find it kind of charming.  Also since I'm not a fan of Bill Murray asshole characters, it's a pleasant alternative.

Easiest 300 bucks the author ever made.

"As a scifi TV show continues, the probability of a Groundhog Day episode approaches 1"

The short is positively frightening.

For tv Xena: Been there done that. A certain Joxor scene makes the whole episode worthwhile.

If we're counting tv shows, I'll throw my vote in for Doctor Who's Heaven Sent for a dark twist on the formula.

Not a looper episode, time continues, and the world changes, he just happens to have short term amnesia.

Although, my argument is similar to claiming 28 days later isn't a zombie movie.  Technically correct, but missing the point.

Edge of tomorrow was good as well

Missing "Triangle" but that's one that is a bit warped.

I can't believe Bill Murray's Groundhog Day ranked 7th on that list.

WTF?

So, I billet a 18 year old junior A hockey player for the local team. At dinner yesterday, I mention to him that I'm going to be watching Groundhog Day after the kids are in bed, and he can join us if he wants to.  He asks me 'what's Groundhog Day?' I tell him it a a classic Bill Murray movie in which he lives the same day over and over again, it's a classic, and ask how he's never heard of it before. His response?  'Who's Bill Murray?'

I'm going to have to have a chat with his parents about this at the game tonight.

/he loved the movie

That short was great, but depressing as hell. And Foreman's Dad was the loopee. But back then I guess he was known as Clarence Boddicker.

There was this British movie or special years ago that did six different ways the world and/or civilization ends, and in one of them, I think it was a pandemic one, they showed a car driving past a theater with the sign on the marquee advertising the film "Groundhog Day", which I thought was a nice but subtle homage to it. I saw it on youtube, can't remember the name of it, jsut that it's no longer available on youtube.

Had to do with this guy getting on a plane, and the endings were everything from Yellowstone blowing up to a pandemic like I already mentioned to a CERN type experiment that goes horribly wrong.

I seriously didn't realize there was more than one movie based on Groundhog Day.......

Does that make me stupid? Or just uneducated?
