Keeping the Christmas spirit alive 365 days a year.


119: I'm Thankful Thanksgiving Comes Around In The Fall, But I've Always Loved Christmas The Best Of Them All. (Olive the Other Reindeer)

Can you believe it's the last Monday of September, already? This week, Julia, Thom, and Anthony cover the beloved 1999 television special, Olive, the Other Reindeer - based on Vivian Walsh's children's book of the same name! Will this sweet story about the earnest Jack Russell Terrier determined to save Christmas melt Thom's heart? Will nostalgia play a role in Anthony's opinion of it this time around? And how will it compare to the book upon which it's based in Julia's mind?

Also discussed this episode are Jon Favreau's desire to make an updated Star Wars Holiday Special, NBC's plans to reboot The Office (again), and the question of whether A Muppet Family Christmas belongs on our Christmas Canon movie list or television special list, amongst any other topics. So throw those windows open to let that cool Autumn breeze inside, settle back with your pumpkin spice lattes, and enjoy this fun episode - the last one before we officially enter Spooky month!
