In this latest edition of Film Freaks Forever!, co-hosts Mark Jordan Legan and Phoef Sutton sit you down in front of a 1970s’ television set and turn you on to the amazing program that was ABC TV Movie of the Week.
Launched in 1969, The ABC TV MOW quickly became a ratings juggernaut and week in, week out, would provide some of the grittiest, well-made TV movies ever seen. Such seminal TV films such as Duel, Tribes, The Night Stalker, and Brian's Song thrilled home audiences. In this new FFF! Podcast, your loyal Film Freaks highlight three terrifically entertaining TV movies from the 1970's that are a little bit more under the radar. However, everyone from Cloris Leachman to Robert Culp to Edward G. Robinson show up in these TV flicks.
So put on your most comfortable bell bottoms, grab a Fresca and a big bowl of Funyuns, and let's go back to the wild 1970s—where you could watch some marvelous, socially aware, and damn powerful entertainment right from your very own bean bag chair!
