I don't watch a lot of television. If you do see me sitting in front of the TV, then more than likely I am watching a sporting event or a movie. The exceptions being "Modern Family" and "Conan".
So all things considered, that means there aren't a whole lot of television channels that I frequent. The sports channels, some of the major networks (if they carry football, hockey, or baseball), and Turner Classic Movies.
However, last week I stumbled upon a channel that I've added to my rotation when I do choose to sit down in front of the TV - Movieplex.
Movieplex is an all-movie channel run by Starz that, from what I can tell, plays B-movies from the 80's and 90's. Meaning that Movieplex's schedule is absolutely fantastic.
In the past few weeks I've seen The Last Starfigher, 3 O'clock High, Stroker Ace, Kull the Conqueror, and The Man Who Knew Too Little. Next month they will be airing Big Trouble in Little China.
Quality classic movies, or even modern movies, are always great, but there's something inherently fun about watching a really awful film from the 80's. It's junk food. You know it's not doing you any good, but it sure tastes great at the moment.
I love this channel. It's the polar opposite of TCM.
