    I love the concept. Unfortunately European fans will have difficulty to follow along with show. TCM has a different schedule over here.

    Oh that sucks. I guess it never crossed my mind that TCM would have a different schedule in that part of the world.

    Hopefully they’ll show these flicks at some point in time.

    Good thing there are still people that has the heart of making this. Good work guys. I love classic movies, unlike todays that most are made through CGI old movies have somewhat a kick to watch, i think due it its truest form on the part of acting.
