I have returned from my trip to London, given a talk on TV movies, sold some more copies of my book, Are You in the House Alone? A TV Movie Compendium: 1964-1999, and now I’m ready to get back to the real world… which means more TV movie discussion! So happy, and excited to rejoin Dan and Nate and look back on the proto-slashers Five Desperate Women (1971) and She’s Dressed to Kill (1979). We’re recording May 25th, so send us any feedback about these films, or any TV movie you please by the 23rd, by contacting us through one of many convenient social media channels. We’d love to hear from you!
Wow, I can’t believe i got this mammoth episode edited and ready for listening (well, as ready as we usually are. Expect the normal volume issues and there’s a few pops and clicks as well). The gang discuss Death of a Cheerleader (1994) and Co-ed Call Girl (1996) in this Tori Twofer, and we feel our lives are better for it! We loved recording this and we all hope you enjoy listening.
The Made for TV Mayhem Show is entering the 1990s, and taking a look at Tori Spelling’s fabulous made for TV movie life! One of the queens of the late-entry telefilm era, we’ll be discussing Death of a Cheerleader (aka A Friend to Die For, 1994), and Co-ed Call Girl (1996)!
Tori made a lot of TV movies in the 1990s, and beyond, and we’d love to hear your thoughts on her work (I’m sure many of you remember Mother, May I Sleep with Danger!). We’re recording during the 2nd week of March, so please contact us with feedback before then! We’d love to hear from you!
It’s time to only speak of love and the Made for TV Mayhem Show has a lot of that for you on this very special Valentine’s Day episode. We’re looking at the May/December romances of the small screen with Anatomy of a Seduction (1979) and In Love with an Older Woman (1982), and the ooohs and ahhhs abound! Join us!
Next up is a Tori-Spelling-a-thon, and we’ll be discussing Death of Cheerleader and Co-ed Call Girl! Contact us here and let us know what your favorite TS film is, or why Co-ed Call is the best movie ever (cuz it is). Yay! See you in March!
The Made for TV Mayhem Show is returning and we’re shooting a few of cupid’s arrows into the hearts of TV movie lovers. This Valentine’s Day we’re celebrating the small screen romance movies Anatomy of a Seduction (1979) and In Love with an Older Woman (1982). If you love love (and you know you do), we want to hear you thoughts on these movies, or any romantic telefilms you’d like to discuss. We’re recording this February 8th, so we’ll need to get feedback by the 7th. Please visit our Contact Us page and drop us a line!
We’re back and we’re going behind bars! Episode 19 takes us into the sometimes seedy world of small screen women in prison flicks, as we sit down for a discussion on the notorious Born Innocent (1974) and the far more campy Women in Chains (1972). Enjoy!
Next month, we will only speak of love! For Valentine’s day, we’re covering Anatomy of a Seduction (1979), which is currently streaming on Amazon, and In Love with an Older Woman (1982). Should be out in time for the holiday, and we’d love to hear from you, so please check out our contact page and drop us a line!
Welcome to 2017… Now let’s go back in time to the 1970s and revisit two “Women in Prison” films that fall across a very strange, and fascinating spectrum of the subgenre, as seen in the made for television movie.
In short… whoo-hoo! We’re talking the classic, controversial and traumatizing telefilm Born Innocent (1974), and the campy should-be classic Women in Chains (1972). If you have something to say about these films, the WiP genre on the small screen, or if you just want to chat about TV movies in general, please contact us. We’d love to hear from you. We’re recording on January 18th, so if you could get your feedback in by then, it would be most appreciated! See you soon!
