We have a jam-packed, fun-filled episode for y’all this week! Kicking off the episode, the elves interview Columbia Jones and Mark Ricks from Burro Burracho Records who join this week’s show to promote the Burro Burracho Records’ Christmas EP “Is There Even Christmas This Year?” featuring Columbia Jones and Sean Ramos.
From there, Anthony talks a bit about his latest television show binges (FX on Hulu’s A Teacher and Netflix’s cute holiday rom-com series, Dash & Lily), Julia and Anthony compare notes on the Hallmark movies they’ve been watching every night (and realize they have very different tastes when it comes to the plots and actresses that star in them), and Thom talks about the slate of original, Hallmark-esque Netflix Christmas films that he and Christine have been indulging in.
Only then do the hosts get to the meat and potatoes of this episode – a long, in-depth discussion on Netflix’s absolutely fantastic, brand-new, 2020 Holiday film, Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey. While Julia, Thom, and Anthony are all in agreement regarding how phenomenal the movie is on every level, how much joy it’s filled with, and how nice it is to see such representation in a mainstream Hollywood production, there is some dissent and debate when it comes to the question of whether or not this film is actually a Christmas movie or just a movie set at Christmas. Regardless of where the elves fall on this question, after walking through the plot beat-by-beat, will they upend their own ranking system in order to give Jingle Jangle the score that they believe something so perfect and entertaining deserves?
This is one extra-festive episode that you want to be sure not to miss! So settle in with your favorite holiday-flavored beverage, bask in the lights of your Christmas tree, and enjoy! And also – from all of us to all of you, have a Happy Thanksgiving! As we are every day of the year, we are thankful for each and every one of you.
