Also CNN as we know it is in trouble. But fingers crossed that TCM stays the same. Hopefully an online petition will help keep it as is if they try tinkering.

Ironically, the Trump administration has been trying very hard to kill this merger.

I believe it’s now the only Melville film without an English-friendly release. It doesn’t quite work, but there’s some interesting aspects in play and it’s def still worth seeing for fans

How well does the Watch TCM app function on a Roku device? I've been seriously considering getting cable partly because of this app, but I don't want to if it crashes all the time.

I wonder if anyone else caught this last night. I was watching the end of The Big Heat last night. When it finished their studio personality, David Karger, came on and spoke a little about the film. Then he mentions Lang and finishes by saying Lang made some of the great early German films, NOSFERATU, Metropolis and M. I had a double take kind of response. I was able to scan back on my cable box. And as sure as shit he indeed said that. Those wraps are recorded. There was no one in the control room or on their set that picked that up!? It’s an unforgivable mistake. I shot TCM a tweet. I have to think that many fans watching did the same outreach to them.

Somewhat old news, but TCM will be part of WarnerMedia's HBO Max platform, set to launch next year.

That suddenly makes HBO Max worth considering... would be the first time TCM is untethered from a cable service. I just wonder if you can view it live with the intros and all that, or if its just movies on demand.

I'm guessing you'll be able to watch it live. HBO has been doing live streams for awhile now on places like Amazon and Hulu and I figure any channel associated with the service you can watch that way.

TCM Monster of the Month
So if you catch the films in this lineup not available on the channel that leaves king king vs Godzilla as the only box exclusive (plus TCM has a couple non Godzilla films not in the collection)
