For those of you who haven't cut the cord yet, Star Wars is going to be on TCM tomorrow night (Tuesday, July 30th). This is a real treat because it's very rare that any Star Wars movie comes on TV without commercials. Set those DVR's!
I love TCM and have been watching their classic sci-fi selections all month. This was a fun excuse to watch Star Wars again.
I held out an oh so very slim hope that we might see a rare appearance the original version rather than the blu ray special edition, but nonetheless great to see it presented with respect and esteem commercial free on live TV.
Not just obscure stuff like The Boogens, but TCM is known to air Lifeforce alot too late at night. Even last month or two months ago this summer TCM aired Lifeforce. TCM also recently has been showing some really odd lesser known early 1980s horror and/or slashers that i never heard of
Yeah that's part of their TCM Underground lineup on Friday nights. They show ALOT of obscure stuff for that.
It was nice to see Star Wars! I wished for a couple things: I knew I wasn't going to get the original, but it should have at least been widescreen. Also, I wished Ben had done the bumps instead of the red haired lady.
It was on again last night with Ben doing the bumps. I missed the opener but caught the closer. I'm really not sure why it wasn't in widescreen format though. TCM is usually really good about showing movies in their original format.
