TV TERROR explores television's darker corridors: classic shows like The Twilight Zone and Night Gallery, and the Movie-of-the-Week golden age that gave us telefilms like Don't Be Afraid of the Dark, Salem's Lot, and The Night Stalker. We've got a penchant for those nearly-forgotten treasures of the tube, and this is where we share our discoveries. So, grab your remote and a wooden stake and join us, won't you?

    EP114: McCloud Meets Dracula (1977) with Special Guest

    One of the first things to spin-off of the NBC Mystery Movie "Wheel" format was McCloud, starring Dennis Weaver (Duel, The Twilight Zone). It galloped across television sets from 1970-1977 and rode off into the sunset with its final episode, McCloud Meets Dracula, co-starring John Carradine (Stagecoach, The Ten Commandments). We talk McCloud and a whole lot more as I'm joined by a special guest, my brother, Vincent, to reminisce about television memories, days that found us in one of television's great eras. Listen in!

Awesome View of Yesterday

Just discovered this podcast this week and I am almost a third of the way thru the back episodes already. It is fun looking back on things I remember, and some that I had forgotten. Even better when it is helping me to discover shows that somehow had slipped by me! Hope this one lasts for a long long time!

Totally not Christopher Walken ,

Fantastic nostalgia fix

I love to think back to my childhood and teen years and all of the fun I had watching schlock on the TV. Antony does a great job bringing up topics and specific memories from my past even though he wasn't there! Kinda creepy now that I think about it. This podcast if a great little reminder of how the 70's and 80's television was far better than most of us give it credit for.
