Loved that one!!!!
"The Girl Most Likely To…" Stockard Channing, Ed Asner, 1973.
I thought "The Boy in the Plastic Bubble" was an intriguing title.
But I loved Roots. It changed my life.
@Henriette +1 re: Salem's lot
@Akm +1 fatal vision
The '80's simply RULED the TV miniseries!
Last Chance Cafe
It's got Kevin Sorbo (vomit). He owns a cafe. His name is Chance. It's the gal's last chance at finding love. I just wet myself!
'Salem's Lot is my favorite made for TV movie, but my favorite title is Mother May I Sleep with Danger.
Who will love my children?
Saddest film ever
@Illinois Fan, that's exactly what I was going to say. Harmon was great in that role (his best along with the Oscar Snubbed "Summer School"). It's hard for me to imagine Ted Bundy and not see Mark Harmon.
Also, I always loved Helter Skelter. My Dad had me get that for him on DVD a couple of Christmas' ago.
I want a date with Ryan banks
Anything with Meredith Baxter, Joanna Kearns, Tracy Gold, Melissa.Gilbert, Judith Light, and Connie Selleca.
I saw a messed up one with John Stamos on CBS and another messed up one with Tony Danza on the same network. Made for tv movies are not like they used to be. Thank God most of them ate on YouTube.
I read the book and it made me cry. The real Stephen died in an "accident"
Kate's Secret, Her Only Daughter, The Burning Bed, I Know My First Name Is Stephen. PBS has great movies too.
Bus Riley's Back in Town!
Band of Brothers.
No one mentioned The Deliberate Stranger. Great title and movie (Mark Harmon as Ted Bundy).
"Mother, May I Sleep With Danger" is the ultimate made-for-tv movie.
Gah! I remember that! When I was younger I thought that was so creepy. I like the cheerleader one with kellie Martin.
Is Piranhaconda about the Hammaconda on a sexual conquest spree? I'd watch that!
BABYCAKES WHEN RICKI LAKES WAS FAT.
Totes best. Title. Ever.
This title has got to be one of the best! 🙂
Her Best Friend's Son starring BAG.
What about Dawn: Portrait of a Teenage Runaway and Alexander: The Other Side of Dawn.
I second "I Know My First Name is Steven" (so sad)
And…."Sin of Innocence" with Megan Follows and Dermot Mulroney!
there was this old movie i saw i think on lifetime YEARS AGOits called Lisa, with the young girl from my two dads. I used to love that movie. Shes living with her single mom an talks to some older dude onthe phone.
i read abt that once!! @hairydawg
Contract on Cherry Street with Frank Sinatra, Martin Balsam, Harry Guardino, Verna Bloom, Michael Nouri and Henry Silva. Followed by Trilogy of Terror and Duel.
Loved that movie!
Damn. Beat me too it! LOL
The 1970s were the Golden Age of TV movies. How could I choose just one? Trilogy of Terror, Bad Ronald, the Linda Blair masterpieces like Born Innocent and Sarah T: Portrait of a Teenage Alcoholic, Look What's Happened to Rosemary's Baby, and Like Normal People (featuring the stellar acting of Shaun Cassidy and Linda Purl, the queen of 70s TV movies).
When it comes to crazy titles, the SyFy Channel takes the prize hands down:
SharktopusDinocrocFrankenfishMega Shark vs. Giant OctopusPiranhacondaDinocroc vs. SupergatorMegapython vs. GatoroidDinosharkJersey Shore Shark Attack
And many more besides those!
Oh! Special thanks to @AKM! James Clavell's book turned miniseries is Noble House. I'm going senile.
Something for Joey – a whole goddamn weepfest of a made for tv movie in the 70s.
Favorite title: "Big Ass Spider" – was on the Syfy channel last Saturday night – best title ever! And funny – both intentionally and unintentionally.
You ARE right! It's Noble House. It's been so long!
Angels in America
Rich Man,Poor Man; The Thornbirds & Gia
That Certain Summer a very close second.
Oh hey, I looked it up. The one with Pierce is "Noble House." Four parts? Sound right?
"Prick Up Your Ears" was a theatrical film, not made for tv…
"Prick up your Ears."
Joe Orton would have loved going to those Brian Singer parties.
Thorn Birds!!Jk, I just remember my mom loving the shit out of that miniseries when I was young.
Would Angels in America count? And of course Gia! Oh Ang, I love ya girl.
Also the 1996 Colin Firth/Jennifer Ehle Pride and Prejudice and one additional vote for 1981's Brideshead Revisited.
