Happy Monday, Christmas fanatics! This week, the elves once again gather at the North Pole to discuss the second batch of Christmas episodes that the classic 90's television comedy, Home Improvement, produced! For those of you who want to join along and watch at home, the episodes we talk about are the following:

  • Season 3, Episode 12 - 'Twas the Blight Before Christmas 
  • Season 4, Episode 11 - Some Like it Hot Rod 
  • Season 4, Episode 12 - 'Twas the Night Before Chaos

How do these Christmas episodes compare to the first batch Home Improvement released? Are they as atmospheric and effective? Also discussed: Julia's upcoming Easter feast, progress Anthony's making with raising his new puppy, Larry, and Anthony gets on his soapbox to rant about toxic fandom and how geeks tend to be their own worst enemies nowadays. In addition, Thom officially announces "Tis the Podcast's Ultimate Christmas Movie March Madness Bracket" and explains how you can participate to win some cool new "Tis the Pod" merchandise!
