Why so GLUM TCM?

2 posts in this topic

Please show less repeats, and more older comedies again. These 60s, through 80s, up unto today even, are already shown on Encore and many channels. Americans have enough gloom and doom on the news channels. Where is our old TCM?

I would like to see more intro/exit comments on the comedy movies that the course is highlighting.  With the TCM Noir, the only movies that had intro/exit comments were the 3 during prime time on Fridays.  The Slapstick movies are Tuesdays and Wednesdays but I am sure the intro/exit comments are also just on prime time.  The next time a class is connected to TCM it would be wonderful if all the related programs had some type of intro/exit, even if it is just the TCM shorts they do on some of the main stars.  I have seen shorts on the Marx Brothers, Harold Lloyd, Lucille Ball, etc. and those would even be a nice intro before the movie.
