Round Table II: Our Favorite Actresses of the Telefilm!

Screen Shot 2016-09-25 at 9.19.44 AM.png

We are back with another round table dedicated to the actresses of the TV movie! We each pick our favorites, and also dive into the listener feedback. Plus, there’s another What is the Movie About game, hosted by Dan, and some fun clips. Join us!

Here is the audio link (iTunes coming shortly):

I also wanted to share the images we received from our good friend Shannon, which were inspired by a couple of our made up TV movie ideas from the last episode (also check out her newest song Runaway on her website… so good!):



Want more Dan? Of course you do! You can listen to him on the Film and Water Podcast discussing Ants! It goes well with this episode, since, as you may have guessed, we’re wild about Lynda Day George! And, Dan also has his own solo podcast (which I’ve guested on) called Eventually Supertrain. Check it out!

Our next episode will be both a love letter to the late Patty Duke, as well as a celebration of her scary movies as a way to kick off the Halloween season! We’ll be reviewing Look What Happened to Rosemary’s Baby and Amityville 4: The Evil Escapes!

Have a favorite Duke flick? Drop us a line and let us know!

The Made for TV Mayhem Show is back on track and we’re gearing up to throw a lot of love out to our favorite ladies of the made for television movie. It’s our toughest podcast yet, because there’s simply too many lovely and talented actresses to choose from. But, we’re troopers and we’re going to face this challenge on September 15th, so please let us know who your favorite is before then, by contacting us through one of our many channels.

I’m really looking forward to this one, and I hope you are too!

If you feel you need a brush up course on actresses in genre TVMs of the 1970s, please check out my Small Screen Scream Queens of the 1970s article, which I broke down into three parts:

Part I

Welcome to a very special episode of the Made for TV Mayhem Show. Episode 13 is a round table dedicated to our favorite TVM actors. Who’d we pick? Who’d the listeners choose?

Screen Shot 2016-05-30 at 11.07.06 AM

So, we’re flipping the small screen script one more time at the Made for TV Mayhem Show and we’ll be discussing topics instead of movies for the next two or so podcasts. For this first very special episode, Nate, Dan and I will each pick one TV movie actor that we love. We’re keeping our choices a secret for now, and would love to hear your thoughts on who makes you giggle or raises the bar when they take up a little celluloid on your television. Comment here, or check out our Contact Us page for more options.

We’ll be recording around June 13th or so, and would love to hear from you by the 12th! See you soon!

We’re back, and checking out some scary dudes of the small screen. This episode covers the classic ABC Movie of the Week, The Night Stalker (1972) and its similar but different NBC companion The Norliss Tapes (1973). Creepy good times had by all.

Also, this is a very special episode dedicated to a few people who recently passed on from Dan’s life. So, send him love and think good thoughts for him when you are listening.

Episode 12 of the Made for TV Mayhem Show is dedicated to:

A.V. Christie
Lobo (the cat)
Julia “JuJu” Fattibene

Dan has also been featured on a couple of other podcasts lately and you can catch him here:

Pod Dylan Episode 11: You Ain’t Goin’ Nowhere
Podcastmania: Vaughn vs. Big Danny B!

Also, our new feedback bumper was created by Shannon (aka Rustingwillpowr). Thank you, Shannon, we love it!

Coming up: We’re doing a special round table on our favorite small screen actors. Will post a date for recording when it’s all been figured out. For now, check out our Contact Us page if you want to let us know which actor (male) makes small screen films better for you (we’ll be talking actresses in the second round table)!
