It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

That means it is time to celebrate holiday television!

We are veering, yet again, from our designated show list to spend two episodes discussing Christmas and television with the expert of the sub-sub genre, Joanna Wilson from Christmas TV History! Joanna is a respected writer, blogger and sometimes guest on television holiday retrospectives, and (most importantly to me), she’s a great friend of mine. Joanna not only knows all about seasonal programming, she’s a pop culture junkie as well, and is super passionate about discussing the media-things that make us who we are. And she’s funny too!

Because it’s so absolutely awesome that I got her to consent to sitting down with us for a few, I managed to wrangle her for two shows! We’ll be recording back to back episodes next week, and this is what’s on the list:

A Holiday TVM twofer on dysfunctional families:

*That’s right (dysfunctional Bradys are waiting!)

The second episode will be a bit like our Midnight Hour episode with one movie and a post-film discussion of holiday programming. On tap for that eppy is Bernard and the Genie (1991), a British comedy that is a tradition in my house. Plus, it’s amazing. Lenny Henry 4ever!

We’ll be recording on the 7th and 8th, so if you feel so inclined to leave a comment about any of the above referenced films, or if you just want to let us know what you enjoy watching during the most wonderful time of the year, you can comment on this post, or contact us through email or our social media links, all of which can be found here.

And if you aren’t holiday’ed out yet, Dan, Joanna and I are participating in the Classic TV Blog Association‘s A Very Merry MeTV Blogathon (whew! Say that five times fast!). You can get the schedule here (Joanna’s review is already posted).

  1. Exciting news! I follow Joanna’s posts and twitter feed, she is a Christmas TV movie and special pro! And you are going to talk about A Very Brady Christmas??? I freaking love that movie and watch every year! Can’t wait to hear all of your thoughts. Haven’t seen the other films, yet.

    A Christmas gift to us all!
