  1. I gave up looking for a solution... then, a couple days ago I tried it again on a whim and suddenly it's back to working fine. So it was something on their end, at least for me.
  2. Yeah, I'm on a desk top. So none of the 'APP' instructions are going to apply. Still not working. It's annoying...
  3. Well... at least I know it's not just me... It acts like I'm not signed in... despite having signed in. I don't see anyway to contact anyone official to ask about the issue.
  4. Suddenly, yesterday, Watch TCM stopped working for me. Still doesn't work today. The error that pops up saying, "There was a problem accessing this content... Requested content is not included in your subscription." I'm on a PC... so I did the usual things... deleted cookies, flushed my DNS. Still nothing. I tried on Firefox. Then I installed Chrome and tried that. Same issue. We've got TCM on our Direct TV channels... so... what has changed? Netflix, Amazon, YouTube... all still work fine for me... just not TCM, but this is pretty much the only way I get to watch it nowadays. So
  5. The same thing is happening to me... grrrr. WatchTCM is pretty much the only way I watch TCM these days... since the TV in the living room is usually occupied by people who can't stand B&W.
  6. This might not be the place for it, sorry if that's so, but I've been trying to figure out what noir-ish film I saw on TCM some time back. It was probably from the 50s... had a stark B&W style to it, no glitz (kind of like Blast of Silence). The plot was about a brother and sister, possibly on the run, staying in a motor court bungalow. The sister attracts male attention, but she's not-quite-right... childlike, and the brother very protective of her. Turns out the sister might be more disturbed than she appears... possibly to the point of murder. Any thoughts on what it might be? Than
  7. Same here. Certain movies just won't play. It's frustrating since it's the main way I watch TCM films these days.
  8. I noticed the same. It struck me as someone just dumping the movies into the schedule with no real appreciation for what they are... that there might be an appropriate order to them unlike, say, the Boston **** movies. Maybe it's just me but it has seemed like the programming has been somewhat lacking and random lately.
  9. Yeah, these days all my favorite moments from Close Encounters are the non-FX scenes with people interacting amidst the chaos. I was very disappointed when the 'Special Edition' or whatever it was called came out with extra hoopla at the end of the film (unnecessary and anti-climactic) but cut the Dreyfuss nutso scenes and various other bits.
  10. Any crime I'd want to trade nowadays is one I wouldn't want to mention on a public forum... though, as a kid I really wanted some Pogo figurines one of the office staff at school kept in her window. I was too scared to do the smash and grab myself but I did make a small attempt to hire one of the class thugs to do it for me... which quickly seemed like a bad idea (opening myself up to grade-school blackmail)... so I dropped the whole idea and avoided temptation by not walking past that window any more.
  11. He and Red Skelton were always my favorites as a kid. Along with Andy Kaufman, Mr. Winters is one of the few comedians to ever send me into uncontrollable spasms of laughter... rolling on the floor unable to breath. One of my favorite showings of his is 'The Loved One'. I particularly liked that he had a dark side that could come out now and then... he could be intimidating when he wanted to be.
  12. No, Cher doesn't bug me anywhere near as much as Drew (Rose McGowan came close though). But rather than B list celebrities I'd much rather see surviving classic actors or film historians or film critics or anyone who really knows and loves this stuff... those two women from the Silent Sunday promos... someone who doesn't seem likely to name Casablanca as their favorite example of Film Noir. Still, TCM is great and we're lucky to have it. If it helps with ratings then I'll gladly dodge around that nonsense with only a small bit of grumbling.
  13. I can't stand the woman... something about her that has always had me avoiding her. Therefore I do not watch The Essentials, or try to tune in a bit late so I can safely miss her. Sadly now I have to do the same thing on Fridays to avoid Cher.
  14. This was made for TV right? I watched it for the first time recently. Like a lot of those older made-for-TV movies... e.g. 'Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark', 'When Michael Calls', 'The Screaming Woman'... it's actually pretty creepy.
  15. I'm pretty sure 'The Weapon' must be correct for the first one... now I just need to find a way to watch it. I'm certain the second one is not 'They Live By Night'... since I know that movie well. I see the similarity with my description though... I'm pretty sure the one I'm thinking of is not a crime movie... at least not a heist movie. Also, there were no actors I recognized (during the short bit I saw). It was low budget and 'stark'. In the one I'm thinking of the girl is 'odd'... mentally ill possibly... a child's mind in a woman's body... flirtatious without intent. The young man
