FX Canada airs a 13 episode Murdoch Mysteries marathon starting December 24th at 10 p.m. and ending sometime on Dec 26th. The episodes will be in rotation three times so you can enjoy opening presents and eat turkey.
Murdoch Mysteries is set in 1899 Toronto. William Murdoch is a newfangled detective who uses techniques like fingerprinting and trace evidence to solve murders. Inspector Brackenreid is not a fan but Murdoch gets the toughest cases solved.
The network will also please Terriers fans. The pilot episode of American comedy mystery Terriers begins the 4 episode spree Tuesday Dec. 27th at 5 p.m. Small-time private eye Hank Dolworth (Donal Logue) pairs up with buddy and ex-con Britt (Michael Raymond James) to solve cases. The next three episodes are Dog and Pony, Change Partners, and Fustercluck.
Three more Terriers episodes air December 28th starting at 6 p.m.: Manifest Destiny, Ring A Ding Ding, and Missing Persons.
Bruce Willis Die Hard fans who are visiting relatives can tune in to FX Canada on New Year’s Eve for a Die Hard marathon with Die Hard at 5 p.m., Die Hard 2 at 8 p.m. and Die Hard With a Vengeance at 11 p.m.
Also getting the marathon treatment are the very eerie and weird American Horror Story December 27th and 28th after Terriers, The League and Wilfred starting December 29th, and Sons of Anarchy January 1 and 2.
