Episode 15 is here! We love Patty Duke!

Our next episode will be a Halloween spooktacular, as we look back on Paul Lynde’s Halloween Special (1976), and The Halloween That Almost Wasn’t (1979). Plus, we anticipate a return of Five Minutes with Nate, and we promise more treats than tricks. Please contact us if you’d like to discuss any small screen scares you love.

Up Next: A Halloween Spooktacular!


While I work on the edits for our Patty Duke podcast, the gang is preparing for our next episode, which we’ll be recording late next week. This time we’re looking at the veddy sceddy specials The Paul Lynde Halloween Special (1976, click on title for a review), and The Halloween that Almost Wasn’t (1979)! So, be prepared for groovy ghoulies and funky freaks!

As always, you can leave feedback by either commenting below or through one of our other social media means. We’d love to hear from you.

Patty Duke episode should be up this weekend! Yay!

Up Next: Patty Duke and her Horror Films


The Halloween season is upon us, and to celebrate, we’ll be ringing in the season with a Patty Duke twofer. This twofer is two-fold (ha!), because we’re dedicating the show to one of our favorite small screen leading ladies, Patty Duke, and we’ll be talking about two of her horror films… Honestly, this twofer is actually a three-fold, because the films we chose, Look What Happened to Rosemary’s Baby (1976) and Amityville: The Evil Escapes (1989) are both TV movie sequels to theatricals! So, we’ve got all kinds of things going down in the Made for TV Mayhem house.

We’re recording on October 6th, so leave us some feedback about Patty, Halloween or anything you’d like to talk to us about! We’ll see you soon!

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:

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!
