Feel free to point and laugh.  I guess it was getting a little too late.

I was doing something like this where ComedyList and SciFiList are 
populated lists:

filelist = []

if var = "SciFi":
    	filelist = SciFiList
elif var = "Comedy":
    	filelist = ComedyList

I forgot to add the [:] at the end.  I am the win.
