UPN's "Last Man On Planet Earth"
March madness continues, with Andrew and Mark exploring the wild world of World War 3. This week is for the ladies with UPN's "The Last Man on Planet Earth." In a world where men are outlawed after WW3, Modern Family's Julie Bowen must shepherd a dumb-dumb science experiment named Adam, while the audience must shepherd themselves from getting weirded out by this bizarre, misogynistic and incredibly horny late-90s made-for-tv oddity. Somehow WW3 is the least upsetting part of this entire film. A real treat, listen in, how about?

HBO's "By Dawn's Early Light"
Mark and Andrew delve into the world of World War III in the month of March, starting with a star-studded affair. One of the last Cold War adjacent offerings, HBO's "By Dawn's Early Light" has an incredible battery of stars: Martin Landau, James Earl Jones, Rebecca De Mornay and Powers Boothe. But, does it also have all the grab-ass and towel spanking you'd ever want in an end of days made-for-tv movie? You better believe it. Listen in, how about?
102 minutes | Feb 28, 2022
Lifetime's "My Husband's Killer Girlfriend"
Mark and Andrew round out the shortest month with a long review of the most recent film to date on the pod, 2021's "My Husband's Killer Girlfriend." Lifetime brings to the small screen the exciting story of hidden identities, lax doctor-patient AND lawyer-client confidentiality rules, and the largest and ugliest sterile McMansions that a pandemic-era location scout could find. It's our last love gone wrong tale of woe for February, so listen in, how about?
80 minutes | Feb 14, 2022
NBC's "The Black Widow Murders"
Andrew and Mark dig into a love gone wrong February with a bit of true crime, in the form of NBC's "Black Widow Murders: The Blanche Taylor Moore Story." Based on a true story, Bewitched's Elizabeth Montgomery plays Taylor-Moore, who has a nasty habit of attempting to murder her husbands and lovers. But, Dr. Stephen Root is on the case to get to the root of the problem (I understand his name is ironic in this case, but please believe me when I say it's completely coincidental). Listen in, how about?
86 minutes | Jan 31, 2022
Showtime's "I Was A Teenage Faust"
Mark and Andrew are back for one last look at 2002 and no look at television movies of the time would be complete without gazing into the hellish abyss of "I Was a Teenage Faust." Combining the literary experience of an episode of "Wishbone" with the cutaway gags of a Season Five episode of "Family Guy," "Faust" centers on the what if of "What if Faust happened in, like, Indiana? But also, like, today?" Grab your Goethe Cliff's Notes and your favorite Joe Mantegna movie and listen in, how about?
100 minutes | Jan 17, 2022
Fox's "The Rats"
Mark and Andrew look back on another 20-year-old film this month with creature feature "The Rats." New York City is swarming with rats. At least more than usual, and it's up to Twin Peaks' Madchen Amick and Law and Order: SVU's Vincent Spano to tame the pests. And that will involve rat geysers and other creepy things that prompts Mark to call this his most upsetting film we've done on the podcast. A high bar, to be sure. Listen in, how about?
102 minutes | Jan 10, 2022
TBS' "Atomic Twister"
Mark and Andrew start the year off right by looking back into the past, twenty years to be specific. January is all about movies from 2002, and we begin with a white-knuckle thriller from TBS called "Atomic Twister." Starring NYPD Blue's Sharon Lawrence and Saved by the Bell's Mark-Paul Gosselaar, "Twister" sees a frantic race to stop a tornado-caused meltdown. But, the more frantic race involves stopping a child from being an even larger creep. Listen in, how about?
105 minutes | Dec 20, 2021
NBC's "Christmas Eve"
It's the last TV Movie Night of the year, and with Christmas Eve approaching, no better time than now to look at NBC's "Christmas Eve." Loretta Young is on her way out and wants to see her grandkids one final time. Only thing is, she's being sued by her son and she's hired one crappy PI to track everyone down. Will the grandkids show up before Christmas? Will Loretta Young have any character flaws? Will Andrew and Mark exchange their combs and watch fobs on air? Listen in and find out!
92 minutes | Dec 13, 2021
CBS' "The Man Who Saved Christmas"
Mark and Andrew continue their crusade to save some amount of holiday cheer, this time via CBS' 2002 effort, "The Man Who Saved Christmas." Jason Alexander plays AC Gilbert, creator of the Erector set, as he sells toys in the midst of the Great War. With the war effort happening, Christmas is threatened, which means AC can't sell toys, make children happy or belittle his unathletic son. And really, is it Christmas without those things? Listen in, how about?
86 minutes | Dec 6, 2021
ABC's "The Night They Saved Christmas"
It's Christmas time again and the happiest elves this side of the North Pole, Andrew and Mark, are back at it, looking at made-for-tv merriment. To start us off, Santa Art Carney is looking to avoid getting blown up by oilmen in ABC's The Night They Saved Christmas. You ever want to see a movie give a thousand different options on how to solve a character's problems, and decide to use none of them? Well, have we got the perfect gift for you! Listen in, how about?
83 minutes | Nov 30, 2021
ABC's "Can A Guy Say No?"
Mark and Andrew finish their questionable November with the afterschool special "Can a Guy Say No?" Starring Beau Bridges, this made-for-tv movie takes a long look at the idea of maybe not having sex during high school. A wild idea, to be sure, one that Mark and Andrew could never, ever, ever fathom. Ever. Not even hypothetically, so don't even ask, okay? Anyway, it's our final question to answer this month, so listen in, how about?
100 minutes | Nov 23, 2021
ABC's "Can Ellen Be Saved?"
We have another question in November, and it's about Ellen. Can she be saved? Mark and Andrew dig into this question, as Ellen appears to be wrapped up in a bunch of cult nonsense. And John Saxon and Leslie Nielsen are also hot on the case. While we answer this question, answer one yourself: Won't you let TV Movie Night into your heart (or at least your streaming device) and listen in, how about?
86 minutes | Nov 15, 2021
ABC's "Isn't It Shocking?"
It's I Don't Know-vember here on TV Movie Night, where all of our titles ask the questions. The first query this month is from 1973, entitled "Isn't It Shocking?" Small town police chief Alan Alda is on the hunt of somebody electrocuting old people, while also ducking his girlfriend's three rowdy kids. Join Andrew and Mark as we find out if the shocks are shocking enough, or if this question was better left unanswered.
89 minutes | Nov 8, 2021
CBS' "Tarantulas: The Deadly Cargo"
It's time to look toward the altar of TV Movie Night's patron saint, Guerdon Trueblood, as Mark and Andrew enjoy another one of his made-for-tv offerings. After bees and ants, it's now time for spiders, with CBS' "Tarantulas: The Deadly Cargo." Venomous creepy crawlies arrive via a crashed plane in a California town, and it's up to the townsfolk to get educated via a scientist man on how to stop these eight-legged terrors from killing the orange crop (oh, and people, too). Listen in, how about?
76 minutes | Nov 1, 2021
NBC's "Night Terror"
The scares continue into November as Mark and Andrew buckle up for a late-night ride called "Night Terror." Starring Rhoda's Valerie Harper, "Terror" (or "Night Drive" in some other universes) has Harper on the run after witnessing a murder. Which is a real bummer for her. Anyway, put the hammer down and listen in, how about?
89 minutes | Oct 18, 2021
ABC's "Tower Of Terror"
Andrew and Mark continue the march through October with an even more spine-tingling, but just as commercial conscious, event in ABC's "Tower of Terror." Based on the Walt Disney World ride of the same name, "Tower" stars Steve Guttenberg, Kirsten Dunst and the best damn ride queue you ever did see. Saddle up as we get in on the ground floor of this gem. Listen in, how about?
96 minutes | Oct 11, 2021
NBC's "Treasure Island: The Adventure Begins"
TV Movie Night's October starts with the two scariest things imaginable: pirates and massive product placement. This time, Andrew and Mark look into the forgotten NBC foray into paid primetime programming with "Treasure Island: The Adventure Begins." Part swashbuckling adventure, part family drama and all shill, "Island" asks the question: What if you could live out your wildest pirate fantasies, while also losing 600 dollars a night to a video poker machine? Tune in, how about?
89 minutes | Mar 29, 2021
CBS' "Devil Dog: Hound Of Hell"
Monster March ends with the most monstrous creature of all: a dopey looking dog, in CBS' "Devil Dog: The Hound of Hell." Mark, Andrew and Richard Crenna dive into the wild world of Satanic cults that are focused on making devil dogs. But, the real challenge these filmmakers undertook was trying to make a fuzzy, adorable puppy look intimidating. Did they succeed? Probably not. Is it entertaining? Absolutely. Etch your eye tattoo on the palm of your hand and listen in, how about?
77 minutes | Mar 8, 2021
March is all about monsters! Mark and Andrew don our snow suits and head into the great wintery wilderness in this week's TV Movie Night, as we hunt down NBC's Snowbeast. It's just like Jaws, except with a yeti, and not a good movie. But, still interesting as TV Movie Night alumni Clint Walker and Silvia Sydney also drop in to bag that dang Bigfoot. Listen in, how about?

NBC's Masterpiece Of Murder
Andrew and Mark look back to a simpler time, when we could enjoy Bob Hope making topical references about the movie Cocoon and having a jalopy of a car. This week, the fellas look at Hope's first made-for-tv offering with NBC's "Masterpiece of Murder," which also stars Trading Places Don Ameche. This movie has it all: meandering plots, odd politics, Jamie Farr. And did someone say date of air commercials? You betcha! Tune in, how about?
