Science fiction usually doesn't get much love on TCM, but thursdays in April are going to be devoted to films about time travel, including the Peter Cushing Doctor Who films, and Time Bandits.

April 17 has George Melies'  A Trip t the Moon.  and on April 27, the day is devoted to sci fi classics.

All in all, a good month for science fiction.

Not that much into time travel movies, so think Wed., April 27 is best.  Not the best quality movies, but if you haven't seen them some are amusing.  Ex. Attack of the 50 Foot Woman and The Killer Shrews.

Or: what to do with some old carpet, used chopsticks, and stray dogs.

Aaaaah!  Aaaaah! Save me save me!

And the award for best costume goes to The Killer Shrews.

Yep, pretty much what can and has been seen on TCM in any month of the year.  Some more than others(ie; FORBIDDEN PLANET,  THEM,  THE TIME MACHINE, 2001:A SPACE ODYSSEY,  THE THING FROM ANOTHER WORLD), so if you missed them the last five or six times they were on, here's your chance.  ;) 

But we know where NIP will be on the 27th!  ;)
