Huge thanks for TCM September schedule


Recommended Posts

This is the most exciiting schedule I have ever seen on TCM! While I have seen, and even own, most of these films I cannot recommend them enough for film fans. Sundays with Hitchcock, Spielberg movies that are new to TCM I believe, foreign gems and, especially silent masterpieces in the history of film series. I have never posted before but this is so exciting that I have to congratulate and praise their programming. Thank you!

A good friend of mine who used to be an AFI programmer and who currently writes the notes for New York's Film Forum said that September's TCM schedule blew his mind. Given at how this guy has probably seen well over 10,000 movies in his life, I took that as a pretty impressive tribute.

The September monthly schedule is defective. I assume that it is good *only* for EST, since my attempt to change to PST brought up the August schedule !! This is a brand new effect. This same ingenious switch probably happens for an attempt to change the schedule to the remaining two time zones.

 

Clearly this is a programming goof, which should be corrected immediately, if not sooner.
