El Rey--The Director's Chair
El Rey launched by Robert Rodriguez, which shows a bunch of action, adventure, exploitation stuff. So far so good. I don't know if it's just a teaser or promo or what, but I've been enjoying some of it. I saw parts of the Beastmaster, Red Sonja, and The Outfit today (off and on). And saw most of a Shaw Brothers film last night, although I forget the title, about a group trying to smuggle arms in WWII. I hope this is a regular fixture and not a paid channel as it's nice to have another TV channel that is worth watching. It wouldn't be hard to beat the Syfy Channel the way they've been running things lately. They also have slated some interviews with directors. So far, John Carpenter, Quentin Tarantino, and Francis Ford Coppola. I enjoy that sort of thing as well.
