 Uncle Poe's October TV Schedule
I own my own TV station ... well, I own lots of TV series and movies on DVD, and I have a TiVo. So, for the month of October, in celebration of Halloween, this is my target, ideal TV and Movie viewing (Note: Friday the 13th the Series fills-in for series with limited episodes):

WEEKDAYS

8:00 – American Gothic
Welcome to the small town of Trinity, South Carolina, where everything is not as it seems and the towns folk look to town sheriff Lucas Buck for help and guidance, often making a devil's bargain with disastrous results. (CBS, 1995-96, 22 episodes)

9:00 – Tru Calling
What would you do if you could relive a day? If you're Tru Davies (Eliza Dushku), you'd save lives. Tru is a smart and sexy recent college graduate who - when her high-powered medical internship falls through - finds herself working the midnight shift at the city morgue. One night, Tru questions reality when she thinks she hears a murder victim asking for her help. But the next morning, our heroine wakes up to find that she is back at the beginning of that very same day - twelve hours before a death that only she knows about is set to take place. (Fox, 2003-2005, 26 episodes)

10:00 – The Crow: Stairway to Heaven
Exactly one year after his death, rock musician Eric Draven returns to earth in a symbolic and literal leap from the bridge that joins the Land of the Dead and the land of the living. Possessing the mystic powers of The Crow, he is neither living nor dead, searching for a way to right what has been wronged. Stairway to Heaven continues the legacy of Eric Draven and expands on the mythology of the successful feature film franchise. (Syndicated, 1998-99, 22 episodes)

11:00 – Witchblade
New York detective Sara "Pez" Pezzini’s search for justice brings her into contact with the Witchblade, an ancient, intelligent, living weapon so powerful it can battle Earth's darkest evil forces. "Pez" employs her skills as a police detective to fight crime, but finds she must employ the Witchblade to combat a much greater and frighteningly organized conspiracy of evil that threatens the very soul of humanity. As Sara tries to keep the secret of the Witchblade, do her job and have a personal life, she finds that her most formidable adversary may be the Witchblade itself. (TNT, 2001-02, 23 episodes)
[Begins October 1]

12:00 – The Twilight Zone
"A journey into a wondrous land, whose boundaries are that of the imagination." A collection of tales ranging from the tragic to the comedic, scary to thought-provoking, and with memorable endings and often moral lessons. Rod Serling, creator and host of the series, won two Emmys for outstanding writing (1960 & '61), and the Golden Globe in 1962 for best TV director/producer. The name alone has become part of the American lexicon, and almost synonymous with the concepts of fantasy and science fiction. (CBS, 1959-64, 156 episodes)

12:30 – The Twilight Zone

1:00 – THE HAUNTED BIJOU

3:00 – The Addams Family
Gomez and Morticia welcome you to a satirical inversion of the ideal American family: an eccentric, wealthy family who delight in the macabre and are unaware that people find them bizarre or frightening. Created by American cartoonist Charles Addams (and originally in collaboration with Ray Bradbury), the Addams Family originally appeared as a series of popular, single panel cartoons in The New Yorker magazine beginning in the 1930s. (ABC, 1964-66, 66 episodes)

3:30 – The Munsters
Welcome to 1313 Mockingbird Lane, home to a traditional, blue-collar American family … of monsters: patriarch Herman (Frankenstein), wife Lily (his vampire bride), Grandpa (Lily’s father, Dracula), Eddie (the werewolf son) and “ugly-duckling” Marilyn (the All-American girl); and don’t forget their pet Spot, a fire-breathing dragon roaming inside the staircase. (CBS, 1964-66, 70 episodes)

4:00 – Dark Shadows
In 1966, the gothic soap opera Dark Shadows premiered on ABC and ran for 5 years, making exactly 1,225 episodes. Today, it is known as one of the most popular cult classics of all time. In 1991, Dan Curtis remade the show as a weekly prime-time drama. NBC bought the series and aired it mid-season 1991. The series wasn't up to NBC's standards in ratings, so the network cancelled the show after only twelve one-hour episodes. Dark Shadows: The Revival Series remade most of the beginning storylines and the episodes that transported Victoria Winters back to 1790 (in the original series, Victoria went back to 1795). (NBC, 1991, 12 episodes)

4:00 – Friday the 13th: The Series
This series revolved initially around the adventures of two cousins, Ryan Dallion and Micki Foster, who inherited an antique shop, "Curious Goods," from their Uncle Vendredi. We find out in the first episode that Vendredi made a pact with the Devil, to sell cursed antiques. He recanted at the last minute and tried to recover the antiques, but was claimed by Hell. The cousins, aided by Vendredi's partner Jack Marshak, used the store's manifest to track down the cursed antiques, each of which fell into the hands of someone who inevitably used them for evil. (Syndicated, 1987-1990, 72 episodes)

5:00 – Miracles
Paul Callan (***** Ulrich, Scream) is an investigator of modern miracles. While consistently disappointing hopeful believers by finding simple explanations for "miraculous phenomena", Paul finds his own faith sorely tested. Then something happens. (ABC, 2003, 13 episodes)

5:00 – Friday the 13th: The Series

6:00 – Buffy the Vampire Slayer: TOP 20 EPISODES
Sarah Michelle Gellar stars as Buffy Summers, The Chosen One, the one girl in all the world with the strength and skill to fight the vampires. With the help of her close friends, Willow (Alyson Hannigan), Xander (Nicholas Brendon), and her Watcher Giles (Anthony Stewart Head), she balances slaying, family, friendships, and relationships. (WB/UPN, 1997-2003, 144 episodes)

7:00 – The X-Files: TOP 20 EPISODES
The exploits of FBI Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully (and later, John Doggett and Monica Reyes) and their investigations into the paranormal – from genetic mutants and killer insects to a global conspiracy concerning the colonization of Earth by an alien species. (Fox, 1993-2002, 202 episodes)

8:00 – SHOCK THEATRE

10:00 – Kolchak: The Night Stalker
Kolchak was originally two made-for-TV movies that aired in the early 70's, and featured the adventures of Carl Kolchak, a down-on-the heels reporter who ran afoul of a vampire in Las Vegas and an alchemist in Seattle. These movies proved popular enough that they were spun off into a series, which placed Kolchak in Chicago with the Independent News Service. Each week for 20 weeks he investigated various supernatural and supranatural creatures, ranging from aliens to vampires to Aztec sacrificial cults. (ABC, 1974-75, 20 episodes)

10:00 – Friday the 13th: The Series

11:00 – Tales from the Crypt
Based on the legendary and gruesome EC Comics from publisher William M. Gaines, this horror anthology featured stories of murder, the supernatural, greed, gore and humor and usually had a twist ending of sorts. Some of Hollywood's biggest names like Demi Moore, Tom Hanks, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Whoopi Goldberg and Michael J. Fox were featured, either in front or behind the camera. Hosting duties fell to everyone's favorite decaying corpse, the Crypt Keeper. The episodes were based on several comic books by Gaines, which were The Vault of Horror, The Haunt of Fear, Crime SuspenStories, Shock SuspenStories, and Tales from the Crypt to name a few. (HBO, 1989-96, 96 episodes)

11:30 – Tales from the Darkside
This 30-minute horror/fantasy anthology series follows in the vein of The Twilight Zone. Each week presents another standalone story of horror fantasy, and/or science fiction. Some episodes are gruesome, a few are of a lighter comedic style. Like many such shows, Tales... adapted the work of famous genre authors of the period such as Harlan Ellison, Stephen King, and Clive Barker. Many episodes also featured veteran actors of the 40's and 50's that saw very little work in their later years. (Syndicated, 1983-88, 90 episodes)

12:00 / 2:00 – THE MIDNIGHT MOVIE DOUBLE FEATURE



WEEKENDS

12:00 – The Hilarious House of Frightenstein
"Another lovely day begins, for ghosts and ghouls with greenish skin, So close your eyes and you will find, that you’ve arrived in Frightenstein … Perhaps the Count will find a way, to make his monster work today. If he can solve this monster-mania, he can return to Transylvania. So welcome where the sun won’t shine, to the Castle of Count Frightentein!" – Vincent Price, from the opening.

The Hilarious House of Frightenstein was a Canadian children's show that combined campy horror with humour and educational segments. The show was filmed at CHCH-TV, Hamilton, Ontario in 1971. The main characters were all played by super talented acted Billy Van: Bwana Clyde Batty, The Gorilla, Grizelda, The Ghastly Gourmet, The Librarian, The Maharishi, The Oracle, Dr. Pet Vet, The Singing Soldier and the best character in the show, The Wolfman. Other actors in the series were Fishka Rais, who played the loveable Igor. Julius Sumner Miller who played a zany Professor who liked to teach the kids about science. Guy Big played the Midget Count. The show also featured horror master Vincent Price, who played, who else, himself. (CHCH-TV Canada, 1971)

1:00 – THE VAULT OF HORROR

2:30 – CREATURE FEATURE

4:00 – HALLOWEEN WEEKEND MOVIE

6:00 – The Hammer House of Horror
This old British series is the television stage in the long and curious career of Hammer Films. Each episode of the series stands alone and has its own cast. All live up to Hammer's high standards of psychological tension, in the best traditions of British horror. (ITV, 1980, 13 episodes)

7:00 – The Twilight Zone
This show is based on Rod Serling's classic TV anthology show, The Twilight Zone. Redoing some episodes and doing new ones 20 years later after the originals, these are made in color and in one-hour episodes. Most of the episodes contained two or three stories, and were broken up in half hour episodes for syndication. CBS cancelled the show in its second season, but it was picked up by a Canadian producer and aired in syndication in a half-hour format. Some of the show's writers are well known: Harlan Ellison, Stephen King, Ray Bradbury, Richard Matheson, Sidney Sheldon and J. Michael Straczynski. The opening and closing music was done by The Grateful Dead. (CBS/Syndication, 1985-89, 65 episodes, 110 stories)

8:00 – HORROR THEATRE

10:00 – Buffy the Vampire Slayer

11:00 – Rod Serling’s Night Gallery
Night Gallery was creator-host Rod Serling's follow-up to The Twilight Zone. Set in a shadowy museum of the outre, Serling weekly unveiled disturbing portraiture as preface to a highly diverse anthology of tales in the fantasy-horror vein. Bolstering Serling's thoughtful original dramas were adaptations of classic genre material--short stories by such luminaries as H. P. Lovecraft, Fritz Leiber, A.E. van Vogt, Algernon Blackwood, Conrad Aiken, Richard Matheson, August Derleth, and Christianna Brand. Variety of material brought with it a variety of tone, from the deadly serious to the tongue-in-cheek, stretching the television anthology concept to its very limits. (NBC, 1970-73, 99 stories)

12:00 – SATURDAY NIGHT DEAD

12:00 – THE SUNDAY MIDNIGHT MOVIE DOUBLE FEATURE

That's the problem with this schedule. It's TOO cool. You'd never have a chance to take a break for fear of missing something good. :lol:

I like the addition of the 80s Twilight Zone on the weekends in addition to the classic episodes aired during the week. I just recently started watching the 80s series for the first time since it originally aired--thanks to Netflix!

 Re: Uncle Poe's October TV Schedule
Anyone know, off the top of their heads, how many Twilight Zone remakes there have been? It seems like there's been more than a few.

 Re: Uncle Poe's October TV Schedule
I'm not an expert, but the only ones I'm aware of are the ones from 1985 and 2002. I know there was (still is?) a series of Twilight Zone stories that were available on CD (and were possibly broadcast on radio too?) a couple of years ago. A video store I was in (Hollywood Video) was advertising them over their loudspeaker once and I believe they had them for sale at the counters too. I never heard any of them, but I believe the shows were hosted (introduced) by Stacy Keach and used some well known writers and voice talents. And of course there was also the movie in 1983, and the magazine from the early to mid 80s.

IMDB also lists something called "Untitled Twilight Zone Project" with a date of 2011. Don't know anything about that. IMDB doesn't list anything, and says that to find out more you have to get a free trial of IMDbPro (anyone already have this?).

You know, all this TZ talk reminds me that I'd been meaning to start a Twilight Zone thread for a long time and have never gotten around to it. Thanks for reminding me. Seems like a lot of us CDF fans were probably into TZ as kids, but you don't see it mentioned here very often.

 Re: Uncle Poe's October TV Schedule
The TWILIGHT ZONE RADIO DRAMAs are on the recent DVD season sets. They're modern dramatizations of original TWILIGHT ZONE episodes with contemporary actors. They're interesting, but nothing too different than watching the episodes with the picture turned off.

Surprisingly, I didn't get into TZ until the early to mid 80's--a few years after I stopped watching CDF. I think either TV38 or a cable channel had it back then. I had bought a Sci-Fi TV Episode Guide book around 1979 (still got it too!) that featured TZ among many shows--which probably was my first introduction to the show.

 Re: Uncle Poe's October TV Schedule
What the heck, postings seem a little slow, so I thought I'd indulge posting my October TV viewing ... doing so for the Summer of Creature Features sort of held my feet to the fire and motivated me. Believe it or not, I think I can actually watch a huge majority of my ideal schedule.

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 1
8:00 American Gothic, “Pilot”
9:00 The Crow: Stairway to Heaven, “The Soul Can’t Rest”
9:45 Witchblade (TV-Movie)
11:15 Witchblade, “Parallax”
12:00 The Twilight Zone, “Where is Everybody?”
12:30 The Twilight Zone, “One for the Angels”
1:00 The Haunted Bijou Double Feature, “The Black Cat” (1934, 65 mins.) and “The Raven” (1935, 61 mins.)
3:00 The Addams Family, “The Addams Family Goes to School”
3:30 The Munsters, “Munster Masquerade”
4:00 Friday the 13th: The Series, “The Inheritance”
5:00 Friday the 13th: The Series, “The Poison Pen”
6:00 The Batman, “Batman vs. Dracula”
7:00 Buffy the Vampire Slayer, “Buffy vs. Dracula”
8:00 Shock Theatre, “Dracula” (1979)
10:00 Friday the 13th: The Series, “Cupid’s Quiver”
11:00 Tales from the Crypt, “The Man Who Was Death”
11:30 Tales from the Darkside, “Strange Love”
12:00 The Midnight Movie Double Feature, “Ghost Story”
2:00 The Midnight Movie Double Feature, “The Amityville Horror” (1979)

NOTE: I actually got things rolling last night at work and then at home working on a project:
Night Gallery (TV-movie/Pilot)
Twilight Zone: The Movie (new to DVD)
Tales from the Darkside: The Movie


Also watched "Escape from Witch Mountain" with the appropriate aged audience on Sunday, and much later "Young Frankenstein" with a different, appropriate aged audience (though by today's standards, Mel Brooks' classic seems just as docile as the Disney fare).

 Re: Uncle Poe's October TV Schedule
Rarely do I get to watch anything from a comfortable recliner, lol. Most of the viewing takes place from right here at The Pit ... my work desk is one of the cockpit style desks, further flanked on each side by bookcases, and a drawing board/scanner table behind me. The shelf above where the monitor is hosts a 9-inch TV/DVD combo, where most all of the "ideal TV schedule" runs. [News/Sports is on the bigger TV in the room]

I'm fortunate (at least for now) to have a job where I can flip on a 9-inch portable DVD player next to the computer and take in some quality entertainment. Despite the schedule, I will watch the safe TV series stuff or the old classics at work and whenever the Real World allows.

A schedule change coming next week is unfortunately going to allow me more alone time so pulling off a big chunk of the schedule will be doable. Sleeping about four hours a day also helps, though not planned.

Someday perhaps I can actually plant myself in that comfortable recliner and, with full attention, pull it off 100-percent ... in about 20-25 years I'm thinking.

Hey group

Want to enjoy an hour-plus of unique Halloween fun? Watch The Batman vs. Dracula !!

I bought this on the cheap early last summer, holding off until now to watch it, and worth the wait.

It will move to October 31 for me next year. Should be a must for October viewing.
