*I wish TCM would do a SWORD AND SANDAL series on Saturdays afternoon. Followed by a HORROR film like theaters used to do back in the day. Or a double feature of each followed by the other. Two Sword and Sandal films followed by two Horror Films.*

*Example-*

*Hercules/Hercules Unchained*

*Attack Of The Crab Monsters/Not Of THis Earth*

 

*the next week*

*The Minotaur/Helen Of Troy*

*Flight From Mars/Godzilla*

 

*The following*

*Revolt Of The Slaves/Last Days Of Pompeii*

*Horror Of Dracula/The Thing That Couldn't DIe*

I will be posting the 17th TCM Programming Challenge rules on Friday, October 15th, between 9 PM and 12 Midnight. That'll be 12 midnight to 3 am east coast time. I'm really looking forward to the Challenge and, humbly, hope that I will do a good job of hosting. BTW, alanpeight, I would love to see you enter an entire challenge. Please consider it. You had such a great programming idea-wow-would I love to see more of it fleshed out in an entire week's schedule.

Alanpeight,

 

What I mean by fleshing it out is creating an entire week's schedule. That's what the Programming Challenge entails. I will be posting the rules on Friday evening but take a look at the link to the 16th Challenge in the original post of this thread. I think you'll get a sense of the requirements. I do hope you'll create a full schedule. I'd love to see it.
