  1. I know this is going to sound (& probably is) an*l, but does anyone besides me get irked at the blatantly incorrect synopses TCM sometimes airs every couple of months or so? This time around it's for "The Body Snatcher", & I'm cringing every time I hear it. Voice-over ad for the movie says "Boris Karloff & Bela Lugosi are a driver & a doctor with a deadly trade agreement in The Body Snatcher". Hello TCM? While Boris Karloff IS a driver, Bela was only a servant in DOCTOR Henry Daniell's household. One would think that a prerequisite for holding the job of writing these bits would be to actually know something about the film, wouldn't one? And this isn't the only time/movie/actor this has happened; there have been a fair number of others. Husband laughs at me when I shake my little fist at the screen, but I just can't help myself - lol!
  2. We are just LOVING THIS, & have been watching it every Thursday (or dvr recording it) thru the wee hours. Major recommendation to make this a regular feature. Obviously not every Thursday; but geez - one night per month isn't asking too much, is it? For us classic horror/sci-fi fans?
  3. Once again, TCM has chosen to totally ignore late great horror icon Bela Lugosi, whose birthday is today (10/20). They seem to manage to showcase other horror icons (Karloff in particular), but somehow Bela always gets short shrift. And here he even had the courtesy to be born during the Halloween month of October, no less. Sometimes I really have to wonder who is minding the TCM programming store. WAKE UP TCM!!!!!!
  4. While I'm sure this young woman is very nice, & as rabid about classic film & social media as she claims, she does NOT come across as anything but an outrageous amateur in front of the camera. Honestly TCM - you couldn't find ANYONE more qualified to introduce your films than this? Surely there must be thousands of far-more-qualified folks out there begging for work. TCM pretty much runs on our TV's here 24/7. We love Robert Osbourne, love Ben Mankiewicz, & also enjoy the other hosts & guest hosts on TCM. But Ms. Vasquez is so poor at it, we actually turn the sound off until she's done introducing. She's like a high-school student reading off a teleprompter. TCM - & its viewers - deserves much better.
