As we talk, we'll share our reviews, insights, and witty banter. As our reviews grow, you can find the canonical ranking of Christmas movies here on our site. Really, what more could you want out of a Christmas podcast?
142: The White House Officially Celebrates Diwali, Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, And Mawlid al-Nabi, The Alleged Birth Date Of The Prophet Muhammad. (Veep)
This week, in honor of the long President's Day weekend in the United States, the elves journey back to TV Land in order to cover the two Christmas (or are they merely set at Christmas?) episodes of HBO's critically-acclaimed, award-winning, hit comedy, Veep - starring Julia Louis Dreyfus and based on the British show, The Thick of It.
Not since the original Grinch episode have the elves been this divided over how they feel, and Anthony, Thom, and Julia stake out their hills to die on when it comes to whether or not this show is worth anybody's time in general. Despite a feeling of all out war, the elves do have their very own Linus moment this week, which is good, because - Spoiler Alert - neither of the two episodes covered do!
There's plenty of other things discussed this episode as well, including:
Thom and Julia's recent snow day
The fast-approaching April Fool's Day
The "Five Shows to Get to Know" each of us
The moment Julia's husband, Marty, knew it was true love between the two of them
And much, much more...
This is one fun episode you definitely do not want to miss, so settle back and enjoy!
