We’re back with a new episode, and we had a great time recording it. We hope you enjoy hanging out with Dan and Amanda and their good friend Gore Blimey of the Trilogy Terror Podcast as we discuss the early 80s mini-series Goliath Awaits!
We will be back very soon to celebrate Shannen Doherty’s amazing TV movie career. As you may know, with the world in this kind of flux, it’s been hard to concentrate on picking titles, getting everyone together, etc. So, please be patient. I do hope we can use this time to bring you more shows and hopefully a little respite from the uncertainties of our current day to day. Thank you all for every ounce of support. We’ll be back soon!
We just recorded our latest episode (Goliath Awaits), but I wanted to get on the ball with our next episode, which is a love letter to the incredible Shannen Doherty. Shannen has had an incredible but underrated TV movie career and we’re going to choose two titles to cover. We have a guest coming in to. Everything is still to be determined, but we should be recording at the end of March.
The reason why I’m posting this so early is because I’d love to get everyone as involved as possible. The Made for TV Mayhem Show wants to do a full on celebration of Shannen’s career and we’d love to hear from as many people as possible. We shouldn’t wait til someone gets sick to honor someone’s life and career, but here we are, and we’d love to get all the good vibes out to Shannen. Help us by letting us know your favorite Shannen role, whether it be in a TV movie, a theatrical or a series. She’s done a lot of amazing things and I know we all love her so much! You can check out our contact page for info on how to get in touch with us! We look forward to hearing from you!
The Made for TV Mayhem Show is returning in March with our first mini-series! We’ll be discussing Operation Prime Time’s underrated 2 part telefilm Goliath Awaits, which boasts an interesting programming history, an intriguing story and a cavalcade of incredible actors, including Christopher Lee, Frank Gorshin and Robert Forster, among many others.
Because Goliath Awaits is brimming with guest stars from all across the globe (well, if the globe were just of the UK and the U.S., primarily), we’ve invited one of our favorite podcasters from Wales, Gore Blimey, to join in the discussion. If you’re not familiar with GB, check out his great Trilogy of Terror podcast. Go now!
We’re recording February 29th, so anything given to us by the 28th will be read or played. Look at our contact page to see how to get in touch! Looking forward to this! Hopefully the episode will be available by mid-March, and there should be a Trap Cast online before then! Let’s hope 2020 is full of TV podcasting!
Happy Holidays to one and all! We are back with our annual Christmas special. And no Made for TV Mayhem holiday extravaganza would be complete without our lovely annual co-host, Joanna Wilson of Christmas TV History. This year we’re talking about the wonderful Dupont Show with June Allyson episode titled A Silent Panic, which features Harpo Marx in a rare dramatic turn. We also play the Christmas Game, where Joanna gives us a title of a holiday special and we guess who’s in it and what it’s about (and we’re pretty much always wrong, but in a good way!). We had a lot of fun, and we really hope you do too.
Have a great holiday everyone! We’re taking January off, but we’ll see you in February so Happy New Year too!
*And a big shout out to Dan for editing this one! Much appreciated!
We poked around under the hood before we got down and dirty with Death Car on the Freeway and Gladiator! So, welcome to our Small Screen Car Porn episode. Try as we might, it wasn’t as naughty as we thought it was going to be, but Dan and I had a lot of fun discussing these TV movies. We hope you enjoy!
We’re planning to crash and and burn in all the right ways with two interesting car-centric telefilms: Death Car on the Freeway (1979) and Gladiator (1986). Recording date is TBA, but likely it will be December 1st. Our guest will be Erik Threlfall of The Hysteria Continues! We’re excited.
Gladiator is currently streaming on Amazon. Give it a go!
