This has never happened to me. The closest I’ve ever come to marathoning a TV show was watching 3 episodes of the anime Cardcaptor Sakura in a row, and that was because it was a 3-part season finale and I just couldn’t leave off on a cliffhanger! But it’s pretty easy to imagine a (slightly toned-down) version of this strip’s events happening in real life.

Okay, confession time: I haven’t seen past the beginning of Buffy season 2. I know, I know! I do plan on watching all 7 seasons, it’s just hard to find the time. Because I haven’t seen all of it, I got my mom to give me a recap of what happens in the various seasons, and I included those things in the strip. She’s a HUGE Buffy fan and even owns a Buffy doll (or “figurine” as she calls it) and an Angel puppet. She also will shoot out funny one-liners, bask in everyone’s praise at her extreme wittiness, and only LATER admit they’re just Buffy quotes. Well, I didn’t really realize at the time that I’ve now spoiled for myself what happens in the ENTIRE SHOW. Um, well, I hope none of you were planning on watching Buffy! Should this strip have a spoiler warning…?

This was a really fun one to color because I got to play around with trying to visually show the transition between night and day. It was also pretty challenging to have the blue glow from the TV in the last panel, as colored lighting isn’t something I do very often. It took a lot of work to get it to look right, and I’m really happy with how the final strip turned out!

The Chapel Chronicles does not endorse 6-day-long TV-watching sessions.

Ok, ever since I saw the strip about Alice, I've had that stupid song running through my head.

Dieseldriver 4/8/13 reply
Ha ha! I've not seen that movie but the song is quite catchy.
 Emma  4/11/13 reply
Hmm. it left out the web site. Go to Youtube and look up "Painting the roses red" Starts out with a short scene with the cheshire cat.
Dieseldriver 4/8/13 reply
I love Cardcaptor Sakura!!!! But Tokyo mew mew is better.

One of my friends watched all 52 episodes in 1 week.
dawnflower8 11/17/12 reply
Wow, how cool! I have such a soft spot for CCS though, because it was what I watched when I was little.
 Emma  11/17/12 reply
Nice! I just watched episode 24, her outfit is so cute in that one(that is the one where she shrinks)
dawnflower8 11/18/12 reply
Ooops I just realized I should have been watching Otome Youkai Zakuro. Oh well
dawnflower8 11/18/12 reply
Today I watched 10 episodes of chobits
dawnflower8 11/17/12 reply
Dang, that's a lot!
 Emma  11/17/12 reply
And then I read ALL of the chapel comics
dawnflower8 11/18/12 reply
And somehow I also managed to go to 2 different craft fairs that day too.
dawnflower8 11/18/12 reply
*sigh* I love this one

 Emma  11/12/12 reply

Haisen 8/9/12 reply
Ha ha! I need to continue, too...
 Emma  10/6/12 reply
Haisen 8/9/12 reply
I can't even continue to read your note: you never saw the beginning of Season 2? I mean, I own all seasons so I don't really have an excuse for not watching them all but come on? Really? Also (much to my displeasure) I lost the first disk of season 6 which has Once More With Feeling on it! So sad :(
CJ 7/12/12 reply
I want to continue watching them for sure! I just haven't had time yet!
 Emma  10/6/12 reply
I love Once More With Feeling!! Its my favorite episode in that season
Mika 8/22/12 reply
I have never marathoned Buffy, but I may have marathoned Cardcaptor Sakura (non-dubbed) >.> ...
1/3/12 reply
I marathoned the subbed version, as well. I LOVE Cardcaptor Sakura!
 Emma  10/6/12 reply
(sigh) Buffy turned into a disaster in the end story wise. instead of Buffy, try out Firefly.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 11/7/11 reply
I tried Firefly but Netflix's streaming had such terrible sound quality I couldn't understand it. My mom likes it though.
 Emma  11/7/11 reply
Go get Firefly on DVD and watch it that way, it's SO MUCH better. The watch Serenity after you watch the TV shows. Also, tell your parents to dump Netflix ASAP. they are price gouging people.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 11/8/11 reply
Hey, we like Netflix!
 Emma  11/8/11 reply
Ginny Weasley fan 11/8/11 reply
Firefly is made out of awesome.
Chad L 4/19/12 reply
Real funny
Daniel 11/5/11 reply
Thanks so much!
 Emma  11/5/11 reply
I like the effect you put on her hair. It really shows how long she was watching TV! And the closest I have come to marathoning was watching movies until 2 in the morning.
Ginny Weasley fan 11/4/11 reply
Thanks! It was fun to experiment to get the right effect (as a result this strip took me SO LONG to color, though). And that's a lot of movies!
 Emma  11/4/11 reply
Yes, i bet it was fun. And i was only 2 movies- hp1 and city of ember.
Ginny Weasley fan 11/4/11 reply
Oh okay. I loved the City of Ember book but the movie didn't get great reviews, so I never watched it.
 Emma  11/4/11 reply
too bad for the movie reviewers, its almost as good as the book.
Ginny Weasley fan 11/4/11 reply
Huh, maybe I'll try watching it sometime.
 Emma  11/4/11 reply
Me encanta Chapel y soy su seguidora incondicional
Cami 10/17/11 reply

What is sadder: Buffy Becoming Part II or Doomsday? Discuss.
Mad 10/16/11 reply
Haven't seen Buffy Becoming yet, so my vote's on Doomsday.
 Emma  10/16/11 reply

As someone stuck catching up on the new Doctor Who series... I am deeply grateful for the reminder. XD
Noxy 10/15/11 reply
Doctor Who is really addicting, especially when you have it on your iPod! Must...stop...watching...

Em, this is my favourite Chapel strip yet. And not because I can totally relate or anything. Nuh uh. Fabulous work.

My Buffy DVD is finally here! Time for a marathon! I wish Giles was the librarian at MY school. Oh no, Rupert. We shouldnt have watched Season 2, too. ITS SO SAD! AAAAAAAAANGEL! After 5 seasons, Buffy has to die for her whiny sister? Slayers do NOT have good job benefits. Awww HELL no. Slayers-in-training?! What about in every generation, ONE slayer is born? Season 7 is a travesty! CHAPEL?! Youve been watching TV for 6 days STRAIGHT! Have you even PEED?!
