    Episode 50: It’s a Mayhem Christmas Special

    Episode 50: It’s a Mayhem Christmas Special

    Happy Holidays to one and all! We are back with our annual Christmas special. And no Made for TV Mayhem holiday extravaganza would be complete without our lovely annual co-host, Joanna Wilson of Christmas TV History. This year we're talking about the wonderful Dupont Show with June Allyson episode titled A Silent Panic, which features Harpo Marx in a rare dramatic turn. We also play the Christmas Game, where Joanna gives us a title of a holiday special and we guess who's in it and what it's about (and we're pretty much always wrong, but in a good way!). We had a lot of fun, and we really hope you do too. Have a great holiday everyone! We're taking January off, but we'll see you in February so Happy New Year too!
    *And a big shout out to Dan for editing this one! Much appreciated!

    Episode 49: Small Screen Car Porn!

    Episode 49: Small Screen Car Porn!

    We poked around under the hood before we got down and dirty with Death Car on the Freeway and Gladiator! So, welcome to our Small Screen Car Porn episode. Try as we might, it wasn't as naughty as we thought it was going to be, but Dan and I had a lot of fun discussing these TV movies. We hope you enjoy!

    Warner Archives Blu Ray Giveaway Contest!

    The Made for TV Mayhem Show is so excited that Warner Archives has supplied us with a Blu-Rray double pack of Bad Ronald and Don't Be Afraid of the Dark to give away to one lucky listener!

    Episode 48: Celebrate Halloween with Moxey!

    Episode 48: Celebrate Halloween with Moxey!

    We mean John Llewellyn Moxey! Pretty sure I just used that joke last week, but be kind... It's been an insane month. But we're here (thanks to Dan who edited this episode) and we've been joined by the wonderful Bill Ackerman of Supporting Characters podcast to give some well-deserved love to Mr. Moxey. We discuss a bunch of his films, but the main topic of conversation is A Taste of Evil (1971) and A Strange and Deadly Occurrence (1974). Bill brought no tricks but a ton of treats, so we hope you enjoy our special Halloween episode dedicated to the great John Llewellyn. We already miss him so.

    Episode 47: We’re Going Back to School with Mike McBeardo McPadden!

    Episode 47: We’re Going Back to School with Mike McBeardo McPadden!

    Make sure you've got your Pee Chee folders and your No. 2 pencils, cuz the Made for TV Mayhem Show is going back to school again! This time we're talking about the other three Rs: Rock and Roll and Rad! We're talking about Ron Howard's sweet coming of age telefilm Cotton Candy (1978) and the TVPG teen sex dramedy Senior Trip (1981). Our guest on this outing is the wonderful Mike McBeardo McPadden, author of the equally wonderful Teen Movie Hell: A Crucible of Coming-of-Age Comedies from Animal House to Zapped! We had a great time recording and we hope you enjoy listening!

    Episode 46: We Love You Valerie Harper!

    Episode 46: We Love You Valerie Harper!

    We're back (finally). So sorry for the delay. Especially with this episode, which is our love letter to some of Valerie Harper's best known genre TV movies. We recorded it just a couple of days before we lost one of the most vibrant women in the world. I wanted to get this out sooner, so we could mourn together. But, thanks to some recording issues and a crazy schedule, it was not to be. Valerie will always be loved and never forgotten, so now is as good a time as any, I suppose. If we'd recorded this after her passing, it might sound a little different, but for now, we hope you enjoy our discussions of Night Terror and People Across the Lake. We miss you and we love you, Valerie. Godspeed.

For anyone who loves TV

I never considered myself a fan of TV movies, but after hearing Amanda guest on another podcast and being absolutely blown away by her encyclopedic knowledge of all things TV, I had to check out this podcast. And I’m so glad I did! I’ve always loved TV, though I’ve gravitated toward episodic shows. But listening to Amanda and the guys go over all the great, and gloriously not so great, TV movies from the past 40-odd years makes me realize how much of them I had absorbed, and how incredibly delightful they can be, especially when seeing through Amanda’s unique and intelligent lens. Kudos to all three of you for a delightful, and gosh darn it educational, listening experience!!!!

Love This Pod cast

I am a huge fan of old made for TV movies. My husband and I watch them frequently on YouTube. I was so excited to find this podcast. And it didn’t disappoint. Although I blame it for my not being able to get much done. I found myself sitting down and just listening. I adore it

I am in love

Wow, this might be the most amazing thing I’ve ever accidentally stumbled upon. I’ve only listened to one episode, the one about Tori Spelling, but I have to say this is a great podcast. I love The Hysteria Continues, which is how I heard about this podcast and I loved your guest spots on there and your podcast is amazing! I’m an 80s baby and grew up in the 90s and this is so wonderfully nostalgic. I definitely recommend this to anyone looking to escape the bleh of every day life and transported to someone amazing!
