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.
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!
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 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.
We’re just in time for a spooktacular look at two beloved Halloween specials. The Halloween that Almost Wasn’t (1979) has a disco-battle with 1976’s The Paul Lynde Halloween Special (not really), and we duke it out ourselves with some serious Skype issues, including a sound delay which makes the whole recording just a touch bit awkward. But our love of the season is in check, and so is the fake Paul Lynde chest hair, so give us a whirl, disco baby!
And, as promised, here is a side by side comparison of the interiors of the (Paul?) Lyndhurst Mansion as it looked in The Halloween that Almost Wasn’t, and how it looks now:
At the end of the show, I also mention the book I edited, Are You in the House Alone? A TV Movie Compendium: 1964-1999, which is already listed on Amazon, in case you’d like to pre-order a copy!
Although the book’s street date is in April 2017, Monster Fest in Melbourne, Australia is hosting a launch next month! Read all about it here.
We’re also taking a pod-hiatus, but we’ll be back in December when the book launch has settled. That certainly does not mean that we don’t want to hear from you, so check out our Contact Us page, or comment on this post. See you soon!
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.
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!
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!
