What comes to mind when you hear the word Thanksgiving? Aside from dealing with a crazy crew and food, when you look back it’s also about reflecting about all of the things to be thankful for. And we aren’t talking about a hot shower and fresh uniform, though the little things are important.
Since Thanksgiving mixed with TV is a recipe for Football, AFN is offering some optional dishes besides the usual pigskin. This Thanksgiving AFN presents ten romantic comedies, a full day of romance beginning at 9am CET/JKT, and ending the next morning on AFN|movie.
We realize that attempting to take control of the TV may be a somewhat daunting task since the games are on. If you are so fortunate as to intercept the remote during a “pass-out” you might prevail. Good-luck.
