Have a Happy Waltons Thanksgiving!

I know I keep losing my horror cred whenever I get all schmaltzy, but that's part of my allure (I hope!). I love a feel-good TV special just as much as the next guy and there is nothing, I repeat, nothing, better than what the Waltons can serve - Turkeys and all! Apparently, the math of the kid's ages is all screwy so they could set the TV movie in 1963, around Kennedy's assassination, but when it comes down to it, who cares? It's the Waltons! Oh and John Boy is a reporter. Does he go by John Boy? One can only hope!

Anyway, that was just my long-winded way of saying Happy Thanksgiving to one and all!

Wandered over to your site via Kindertrauma and am now wading knee-deep in the older posts.

I am wondering--do you have any information or memories of a made-for-TV film starring Richard Thomas (John Boy Walton) called "Final Jeopardy"(1985)? He plays a small-town guy who has to go downtown in some big city (maybe New York?) to meet a guy about a job. He ends up waiting for several hours at the wrong place, and finds the lot he parked his car in has been locked up for the night. Turns out he's in a bad part of town, and spends the rest of the night being pursued by a street gang.

Hi Brother Bill, thank you so much for posting. I've been on your blog as well... It's amazing...

I'm not familiar with that movie, although I do know of one Richard made called Stalking Laura which is a true crime movie about a stalker who ends up shooting up his workplace. It's one of the most brutal TV movies I have ever seen. He's fantastic in it. I DEFINITELY need to see Final Jeopardy! Thank you for letting me know about it!
