Re: TCM

Thanks for the reply.

Try-over-the-air television. Lot of sub-channels with older content.

Thank you for the suggestion but there is a large difference between THIS and TCM. (I get Fox Movie Channel which is a little closer but still not a good as TCM.)

TCM

Right now I have lost TCM from my cable line up. My cable bill has not changed and no other channels have been removed beside that one. I have Comcast Pontiac. Does anyone out there have this problem? (It's not a big hassle but I like old movies.)

Fillings

I'm probably risking a lot of flak for posting this but what the heck. There was an episode of Gilligan's Island where Gilligan received radio signals. through the filling of his teeth. Has anyone out there heard about this actually happening or is just bunk and balderdash? (I think this also happen...

Re: Wait a minute...is it 2019 or 2001? Pro wrestling wars on TV suddenly heat up!

? Lo and behold - an upstart wrestling promotion has found its way to TNT. In prime time, no less! TNT is not some throwaway cable network like Spike, ESPN2, or AXS. It has incredibly strong brand equity and is home to marquee NBA basketball telecasts, March Madness, and great action / drama series....

Re: Now that’s an advertisement I can get behind!

I don't have a technical background. I'm not sure how an electronic billboard can be hacked, (but apparently it can.) My father used to live in Southern California. There was a freeway near his house that went by a drive in movie theater. Driving past it you can see a bit of what's playing. I always...

Re: New Season 2019/2020

The Simpsons is still watchable but stale. Skinner's line about the Tot Offensive was pretty funny. I'll give Bless The Hearts a few more tries though at times it reminded me of Mama's Family, (I was never a fan of that show.) Still Haven't watched Evil and Stumptown . (Actually I'm waiting for a sh...

Re: New Season 2019/2020

I saw Bob Heart Abishola last night. It was pretty good. It had the same kind of rhythm and humor of Mike And Molly. Also the show takes place in Detroit, (Bob meets Abishola at Woodward Hospital which i guess is like Harper Hospital.)

I just listened to All Mixed Up, probably my favorite cars song.

ABC's overnight news didn't mention it. NBC 4AM Today Show Did.
