We thought it would be fun to kick off 2019 with a love letter to one of the greatest and most underrated character actors ever! The crew will be gathering sometime in January to discuss Escape from Bogen County (1977) and The China Lake Murders (1990). And yes, we’ll get to Then Came Bronson in another podcast, but for now it’s all about these rarer, less talked about TVMs and the wonderful work Parks left behind! Please let us know your thoughts on these films and/or Mr. Parks by contacting us through one of our many social media channels. We really want to hear from you!
And Happy New Year!
It’s that time of year again, where the Christmas trees are all aglow, stockings are hung with care… and Rich Little does an impression of Truman Capote as Tiny Tim?!?
Wait a second…
No, it really happened, and we’re going to talk about it on the next episode. In case you haven’t guessed, we’re watching and discussing Rich Little’s Christmas Carol (1979), which is a candy cane full of LSD. Should be fun! We’ll also be joined by our favorite holiday expert, Joanna Wilson!
We’re not exactly sure on the recording date, but it will be either December 17th or 18th, if you’d like to participate! We’d love to hear from you, so contact us and let us know what you think of Mr. Little’s audacious retelling of the classic story.
While I work on our small screen vixens episode, I thought I’d go ahead and let everyone know that we’re going creepy for Halloween. We’ll be discussing The Woman in Black and The Haunting of Sarah Hardy (both 1989) sometime towards the end of October! I’m so excited to sit down and revisit these two excellent telefilms. Join us!
As we head into fall, the Made for TV Mayhem Show has decided to keep things scorching hot with our next ep.! We’re talking vixens and their older men and watching Summer Girl (1983) and The Face of Evil (1996).
Because of my increasingly hectic schedule, we’re recording very soon. So, we’ll need feedback by Wednesday September 12th. Check out how to get in touch via our Contact page. See you soon!
While I furiously edit our Propaganda Telefilm episode, I thought I’d go ahead and give a heads up on our next double. Since it’s summer, I thought it would be fun to get a little sand in our hair with Zuma Beach (1978), and The Hustler of Muscle Beach (1980)!
Update: I’m SO behind on my editing. I’ll hopefully have the Propaganda episode online right around the middle of June. Apologies for the delays. Life has a funny way of making things difficult.
As always, you can leave feedback through one of our convenient social media channels. We’ll probably record sometime around the beginning of July. I’ll update everyone when we know what day! And look for our Go Ask Alice / Mazes and Monsters soon!
We just recorded our love letter to Kathleen Beller, but I can’t get to the edits until the first week of April. So, I decided to go ahead and give everyone a heads up on our next episode. We’re going to look at a couple of classic message movies: Go Ask Alice (1973) and Mazes and Monsters (1982). We’ll probably record in the middle of April. You can send feedback through one of our many social media channels, which can be found here. Drop us a line cuz we love you!!!
We’re getting the gang back together in March and we’ll be looking at two of Kathleen Beller’s telefilms, No Place to Hide (1981) and Deadly Messages (1985). No recording date set yet, but it will be sometime around mid-March. Send us feedback!
