Like you my wife and I gave up cable or satellite many years ago because we just got tired of the vast wasteland. The only channels we watched were TCM and Fox Movie Channel. I told my wife that it would be better for us to invest the $60.00 a month on building our own personal DVD library so we can watch what we like when we like. So now we have over a thousand movies and TV shows. We do subscribe to Netflix streaming for $8.00 a month. I do miss TCM a lot and I have written to them several times and asked them to build on online streaming subscription to their live broadcast. I told them there are millions of us out here who would pay $10.00 a month just to have TCM only. It may be coming soon actually because I was invited to test drive a beta site for the Warner Archive streaming service. Glad to see a fellow member of the Classic Science Fiction Reading group here.

The oldest, existing film version of Bram Stoker’s novel, Nosferatu is likely Murnau’s most watched title. It’s eerie Expressionist style was a major influence on the American horror genre, but […]
