This Week on... TCM (September 26 - October 2)

It doesn't look like a great week for TCM, but there are a few movies that might be of interest. As always, you want to double-check your schedule for airings.

* On a non-cinematic sidenote, I hope Arrested Development fans watched Running Wilde last week (as mentioned in my last post). I thought it was really promising. There were some funny moments, including surprise cameos by British comedian Peter Serafinowicz and David Cross. Will Arnett was in (almost) top-form as the star, proving that, though he is best in ensemble casting (a la Arrested Development), his comedic abilities are more than enough to carry a twenty minute show. Keri Russell was fine as his polar opposite ex-girlfriend, but the real chemistry was between Arnett and Serafinowicz. I hope Serafinowicz will be a permanent cast member. Make sure you catch Running Wilde before it's gone forever! Since I enjoyed it, I give it maybe... three more episodes before Fox axes it. Also, the season premiere of 30 Rock was especially excellent, and The Increasingly Poor Decisions Of Todd Margaret, also starring Cross and Arnett, will begin this week on the Independent Film Channel (starting on Friday, October 1 at 10:00 PM -- leave your tv on and watch Freaks And Geeks after!).
