Just one thing before you scroll down to the final schedule. If you haven't read my 2022 Thursday Movie Picks Schedule (Preliminary) post, click the link and read it. I had written about some RUDE participants. Basically if you want to participate in TMP, participate properly…don’t be that rude person.
So back to all you other decent folks who have been participating, thanks for joining in the past and here is a refresher on the two requirements for Thursday Movie Picks (TMP) participation.
1. Submit your link in the linkup widget.
2. Link back to my blog on their own TMP post.
This 2023 run of TMP is the tenth year I'm doing the series and I really contemplated either not doing it at all or just doing it on my own so that I can do sporadically rather than every single Thursday. 2023 is going to be a little busy so doing every Thursday is going to be a challenge. In the end I found a middle ground. As you may have noticed the schedule is shorter.
The 2023 TMP is going to run on the second Thursday of every month for the regular movie edition and the last Thursday of the month for the TV edition. The exception is February for the Romance Tropes Edition and October for the Halloween edition which will run every single Thursday for that month.
This is the final schedule. Any mistakes, questions or clarification needed please leave a comment. Also can someone check the dates for me as last year I made quite a number of mistakes with dates leading to extra themes.
