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!

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!

Coming Soon! Ladies Behind Bars!

screen-shot-2017-01-09-at-8-27-59-pm

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!

It’s the Christmas TV Movie Game Show!

screen-shot-2016-12-19-at-5-10-45-pm
Welcome to our last podcast for 2016! We got together with Christmas TV expert Joanna Wilson to play a few games of Create A Synopsis For That Generic Holiday TV Movie Title, which doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue but is a lot of fun to play! There’s clips, chatter, and lots of great holiday movie recommendations (real and imagined), as well as a look at Joanna’s new book: Triple Dog Dare: Watching and Surviving the 24 Hour Marathon of a Christmas Story, which you can purchase at Amazon or buy autographed from 1701 Press!

And as per usual, please ignore the popping and irregular sound. I’ll figure this thing out eventually.

Happy Holidays! And enjoy!

After a mini-hiatus (mini-atus?), The Made for TV Mayhem Show is returning… with a mini-sode! This one features the preeminent expert on all things Christmas TV, Joanna Wilson, who will be the Gene Rayburn to our usual motley assortment of freaks (Dan,  Nate and myself, of course) as we play Christmas games and talk about awesome holiday specials. We’re recording next week on the evening of the 15th, so if you’d like to let us know what your favorite holiday programming is, feel free to contact us! We’d love to hear from you and will read your letters on the show!

We’ll be back to (semi) normal in 2017, with more double features, hijinks and hilarity! See you soon!

Also, if you into Christmas slashers, why not check out the latest Hysteria Continues podcast, which is dedicated to the weird 1980 horror film To All a Goodnight. I was guest on this episode and had a blast!
