Happy Holidays!

Blog Post #208

Happy Holidays!

Our new site is here at http://tvmeg.com as of this week! Hooray! It may be a wee bit premature, with most of our new content still over on The TV MegaSite, but I’m confident that we’ll be able to move a lot of content over in the next few months. I wanted to make sure that people can find us at our new home because I had new business cards made, and because I sent them out in my Christmas cards to a lot of people! I wanted to make sure that they pointed to the right place.

This week I’ll start moving over the daytime soap pages and updating the content. Hopefully that won’t take too long. Once we get that done, then we’ll no longer have to archive all of the week’s pages and make new ones, which is a big hassle. Brenda will be free to do other great things on the site!  There are only 4 daytime soaps, so it shouldn’t be too difficult. For now, we’ll leave the older shows where they are.

After that, we can start moving over the Primetime show pages. I’m trying to figure out a way to put up our weekly news and schedule here in WordPress that will be both easier for us to write, and easier for you to read.

Besides working on this site, I’m also a part-time student, and finals are next week, so hopefully that won’t make things too difficult.  Christmas often takes up a lot of time because I like to have a lot of decorations, send out a lot of cards, and make a lot of cookies! This year I’ll have help putting up the decorations, at least.

Speaking of holidays, I hope you can spend some time watching holiday movies because there sure are a lot of them on the tube, especially Hallmark, Lifetime, and Freeform.  That’s not even to mention the old favorites and specials that are everywhere. And if you can’t find them on regular TV, I’m sure you can find them on Netflix, Hulu, Amazon or somewhere else streaming.  What’s your favorite holiday movie? What’s your favorite holiday TV special or episode?  Let us know in the comments below. My favorite holiday movie is probably “Miracle on 34th Street” (1934) with a young Natalie Wood (you can watch it for free on YouTube!). I also love the musical “Scrooge!” from the 70’s (also free on YouTube!). I always love the specials, too, that I grew up with, like “A Charlie Brown Christmas,” “Rudolph the Red-Nose Reindeer” and “How the Grinch Stole Christmas.” I’m sure that people who are younger than I am have their own favorites, like “Elf” or “The Santa Claus” or “Christmas Vacation.”  There’s no wrong answer!

I know it’s a little early to talk about the holidays (or maybe it just seems that way to me), but this year it seems like we really need some holiday cheer, with so many terrible things going on in the world. I know I do!

Every year, some of the great TV networks, or the people who make their DVD’s, ask if we’re going to do a “Holiday Guide.” I should have made it back a few months ago, but I finally did get it done. It only took me 3 days! During Thanksgiving! I hope you can check it out if you want to buy any DVD’s for yourself or your family. They make great gifts.

When I made out my holiday cards, that includes the 20 or so I sent out to our volunteers.  We have a great group of people that work on our site, writing fan fiction, recaps, updates, scoops, forum posts and more.  Every year, I send them all holiday cards, along with an Amazon gift card. I can’t afford to pay anyone, even myself, so this is the way I can show that I appreciate them.  I wish I could do more!

Christmas Wish

Maybe one day the site will make enough money to pay us…that’s what I’m hoping, anyway. That’s why I’m taking classes and working to improve the site. This time of year, it’s easy to believe that all our wishes can come true.  I hope yours do, too!

Ernie Kovacs DVD coverErnie Kovacs: The Centennial Edition Happy 100th Birthday, ERNIE! To celebrate the 100th birthday of television’s original genius, this collection combines the previously released volumes of groundbreaking, rule-breaking, surreal and charmingly silly comedy of Ernie Kovacs. Included are over 22 hours of decidedly offbeat entertainment from across his many television shows and specials, all of which showcase an utterly unique sensibility that has influenced such comedy institutions as Monty Python and SNL. Featuring: Episodes From His Local And National Morning Shows; Episodes From His NBC Prime-Time Show; Kovacs On Music; Five ABC TV Specials; The Color Version of His Legendary Silent Show, Eugene; His Award-Winning Commercials For Dutch Masters Cigars; Short Films, Tributes, Rarities; 18 Bonus Sketches Featuring Many Of His Most Beloved Characters; 3 Complete Episodes Of His Offbeat Game Show Take A Good Look; A Pony For Chris: His Rare TV Pilot For Medicine Man Co-Starring Buster Keaton; The Lively Arts Featuring The Only Existing Filmed Solo Interview With Ernie Kovacs; and 2011 American Cinematheque Panel

The Beverly Hillbillies: The Official Fifth Season Season five of The Beverly Hillbillies finds the sturdy Clampett The Beverly Hillbillies 5th Season DVD coverclan — Jed (Buddy Ebsen), Elly May (Donna Douglas), Jethro (Max Baer Jr.), and Granny (Irene Ryan) — still retaining their mountain-grown values and essential decency despite Jed’s millionaire status and the family’s luxurious Beverly Hills surroundings. Two of the season’s best plotlines are characteristically manifested in story arcs, spread out over several successive episodes. In the first, Jed is targeted for blackmail by a pair of slick con artists, played by Leon Ames and Gayle Hunnicutt. This is followed by a farcical escapade in which Granny forces a trained gorilla (actually a costumed stunt man, played by George Barrows) to take over the chores at the Clampett estate. Otherwise, season five follows the pattern established in season four of enlivening the traditional Beverly Hillbillies nonsense with choice guest-star appearances. Veteran comic actor Charles Ruggles makes a return appearance as Mr. Farquhar, the skirt-chasing father-in-law of Jed’s banker Milburn Drysdale (Raymond Bailey). Gloria Swanson plays herself in another episode, wherein the Clampetts, acting under the misapprehension that Swanson is broke, bankroll her “comeback” in a brand new silent movie (and no, William Holden did not write the screenplay). And in the episode “The Indians are Coming,” John Wayne makes what must have been the best-publicized “surprise” guest appearance in TV history! But perhaps the most memorable of the guest-star turns is contributed by the voluptuous Joi Lansing, cast as the wife of country singer Lester Flatt. In “Delovely and Scruggs,” Mrs. Flatt is given a Hollywood screen test, with Jed’s bumptious nephew Jethro Bodine (Max Baer Jr.) launching what he hopes will be an illustrious Hollywood career as the test’s director. The Beverly Hillbillies closed out its fifth season on CBS as America’s seventh most popular TV series, indicating that the corn pone-comedy well had not yet run dry!
Cast & Crew: Buddy Ebsen – Jed Clampett; Irene Ryan – Daisy `Granny’ Moses; Donna Douglas – Elly May Clampett; Max Baer Jr. – Jethro Bodine; Raymond Bailey – Milburn Drysdale; Nancy Kulp – Jane Hathaway; and Harriet MacGibbon – Margaret Drysdale.
