Also CNN as we know it is in trouble. But fingers crossed that TCM stays the same. Hopefully an online petition will help keep it as is if they try tinkering.

Ironically, the Trump administration has been trying very hard to kill this merger.

I believe it’s now the only Melville film without an English-friendly release. It doesn’t quite work, but there’s some interesting aspects in play and it’s def still worth seeing for fans

How well does the Watch TCM app function on a Roku device? I've been seriously considering getting cable partly because of this app, but I don't want to if it crashes all the time.
