‘Twas a month after Christmas and no holiday episode had been released, this was beyond slacking, was the podcast deceased? Bah humbug they decried, we were just enjoying a much needed rest, we’re back more excellent then ever, some might even argue at our best! Full of Christmas cheer and Matty’s beer, our spirits couldn’t be higher, just don’t dare mention Die Hard is your favourite Christmas movie, or horrible things will transpire!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all the Movie City Maniacs out there!
We’re a little late in delivering our holiday cheer, but we thought we’d keep the Christmas spirit going just a little longer with five Christmas TV specials and films that we think you should watch, trying our best to ignore the more obvious choices. We also hang with Michael Scott and debate the ethics of yankee swap in The Office: S2 – Christmas Party (2005) and The Office: S3 – A Benihana Christmas (2006), learn how ducks spend Christmas in Mickey Mouse: S3 – Duck the Halls: A Mickey Mouse Christmas Special (2016), spend some time in Mayberry in The Andy Griffith Show: S1 – Christmas Story (1960), watch as Jackie Gleason proves true comedy is timeless in The Honeymooners: S1 – ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas (1955), party with the Muppets, Fraggles, and the gang from Sesame Street in A Muppet Family Christmas (1987), and finally we learn how horrific the holidays can truly be in Better Watch Out (2016). We also do a little gift exchange, and Kyle goes on a profanity laden tirade as he shares his thoughts on Die Hard as THE Christmas film. So pour a glass of long expired Eggnog, provide life support to your fir tree, and join us by the open fire as we prolong this joyous holiday for one more day.
Thanks for listening, and Happy New Year!
