  1. This was my response to Carmen: Wow, that's great Execuspeak for nothing will happen, you DON'T really listen to your customers so screw you. That's pretty much the answer I thought I'd get. I've been a Comcast customer since you hit our little town back in the early 90s. Well you made my decision much easier. Verizon here I come!! You have a great rest of your day too.

  2. Got an email back from someone at Comcast that I emailed. This was their non-answer answer in really great Execuspeak, which just cemented my decision to bail on them:
  3. When they moved it up TCM still did 31 Days of Oscar even though there were only 28 days in the month so I'm guessing they'll still do the same thing or maybe move it to January.
  4. Anyone have a movie that made you angry at the end? You sit through it thinking "OK, it's got to get better", you think about giving up but stick it out for whatever reason, & then 2 hours later you're all "I WANT THOSE 2 HOURS OF MY LIFE BACK!!" I know several people felt that way about "Blair Witch" but for me & some friends it was "Saw." We didn't want to watch "Saw" to begin with. Not that we don't like horror, just, well, we weren't in the mood. But one friend insisted we watch it so we did. At the end of it (BIG SAW SPOILER COMING if you care about things like tha
  5. Interesting thing I learned about Bozo was that he was sort of a franchise. If you had a Bozo show you were supposed to do certain things. Our Bozo, Mr. Dyzel, decided to do his own thing & I don't think they liked it. They wanted more sketches & gags & he did games & things like that instead. They had a land-the-ball-in-the-bucket game & I think there were 10 buckets with different degrees of prizes listed on cards. No kid had ever hit #10, UNTIL ONE KID DID. There was no real prize in it so when the kid hit it he vamped for a few minutes & moved on. The kid
  6. I get that they want more money for TCM. After looking into Sling I found that they don't include local channels but TCM is available. The cheaper package of Sling only allows you to watch it on one device, whether that's a phone, laptop or TV. The other package lets you watch on more devices & it's more expensive.
  7. Same here. I'd even give that $10 to Comcast. I don't want or need HBO but I want & need TCM.
  8. Late to this thread but I'd totally be down for Rockville/Germantown chapter for meetups. I know they've basically done away with the Backlot chapters but right now the "official" DC/MD/VA one always has showings in VA & I'm just not driving that far for a movie. I don't need free tickets to the movie either, which was the only perk that Backlot chapters got & still get, I just want to meet up with other more local fans & have discussions.
  9. Sadly Sir Graves Ghastly is no longer on this earthly plane. He died in 2007. But he was an original! Count Gore started in the early 70s & ended in the late 80s (cable killed our TV vampire). Count Gore is Dick Dysel. He was, for a while, our Bozo the Clown & also our afternoon kid's show host Capt. 20, but his first love is & has always been Count Gore. He'll be hosting a showing of "The Exorcist" at the AFI Theatre in Silver Spring, MD on Oct. 26. He's still around & he.is.awesome. because he's "mine". I watched him daily as a kid then every Saturday nite with my f
  10. And if you decided to NOT buy everything that was advertised on any sports program, you'd have a really hard time with that. So we pick our battles & Comcast found our line in the sand that is TCM.
  11. Unabashed Copland & Speed Racer fan chiming in here! I was a vid store clerk for 12 years, starting in the 90s so I'd venture to guess I've seen several thousand movies & whenever people would ask about Copland I'd go all in. Especially since Stallone plays against his usual tough guy type. As for Speed Racer, well, let's just say when I was 5 I just KNEW I was going to marry Speed. He was gonna toss Trixie to the side be mine!! When I heard they were doing a live action I was very excited. Then the reviews hit. When I finally saw it I was very impressed. It looked & felt
  12. Aww...I love Ben! I bet he'd do it at least once! He's the same age I am & a local boy from the DMV (DC/MD/VA area) so he grew up watching the same channels I did & I'd bet money he was a Count Gore fan too! Count Gore was our local horror movie host: http://www.countgore.com/
  13. I think a LOT of the outrage is because it was added with sports & sort of on the sly. If you do autopay you may not get a paper statement in the mail. If you don't look at that stuff (which apparently a LOT of people didn't myself included) you just turned on your favourite channel & BOOM! it was gone. And apparently the original poster here is one of those that actually reads those things so I'm glad someone did.There was no scroll at the top of TCM to say it was going to a different package & if you still want it here's what you do. How many times have you seen a scro
  14. I'm glad his Oscar nom was for Jackie Brown. He deserved it.
  15. I know this very well. Honestly, I have had very few problems with Comcast in general. Outside of a few issues when we first moved into our house & then when we upgraded to the DVR & HD. But those things were just par for the course in a new installation. The first time we really had a problem was when they moved Cartoon Network AND TCM up a tier so I reconfigured my package, got 'em back, got the bill reduced & got more channels (go figure right?). Also, for a very long time they were the ONLY service I could get in my county in MD so I've been a customer since the
  16. I also wanted to say that for me, TCM is my go to. It's a refuge from the dumpster fire the news cycle & world have become. I can go to TCM & have a martini with Nick & Nora or put on a show with Mickey & Judy. The endings are happy (unless it's Noir Alley or Underground). While there are many issues with old movies, they're comforting & dependable to me. It's also safe in that you can watch most movies with the entire family. No need to change the channel when the 8 year old comes in the room. Yes, you may have to explain why they're smoking cigarettes or what a
  17. Yep, count me in on those that got screwed over by Comcast. I have sports channels I don't watch now, why would I pay $9.95 a month to add MORE channels I don't watch? Over at the Xfinity forums people are ANGRY & VERY vocal. I've emailed several muckety mucks at Comcast & even emailed the local NBC consumer reporter & actually got a response! They want more info which I will provide this weekend. Comcast's answer to this? Merge every single thread about TCM into one big locked thread & then locking the merged thread. They think that's going to stop our discussio
  18. There is a DC/MD/VA Chapter but they tend to meet in VA. From an email from the chapter: TCM/Fathom Movie Event is always held on a Sunday at 2pm, at the Regal 16 Cinema Potomac Yard, on Jefferson Davis Highway (Route 1), Alexandria, Virginia. There was discussion around this time in 2018 to break the group up into smaller groups since many don't want to make it VA or can't make it but it hasn't happened yet. I've never gone to the Alexandria showings because that's a little far for me. Sadly there are never any showings at any theatres in DC or MD but I can't tell you wh
