MY TVC 1 5
Favorite "Xmas" TV specials this year.
What were / are yours?
After Watching the Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends Christmas Special, I have to say I really liked it. Typical story, but enjoyable with the "Peanuts" innuendoes. It was quality for sure IMO.
I am pretty weird so I also enjoyed the Pee Wee's Playhouse Christmas Special from years ago they were playing on Adult Swim. Great guest stars, from Char to Annette Funichello, and KD Lang's spot is just to weird not to see at least once - well and Grace Jones was way out there too. Magic Johnson's sleigh ride, etc...
Last mention, Robot Chickens "Kill Bunny" a spin off of Kill Bill with Jesus, Santa and the Easter bunny. It is a little "twisted" but I loved how it represented the way the holiday figures are in competition with each other trying to "take it" from Jesus and he exacts revenge to take the meaning of Christmas and Easter back. To dark, but to funny. Disturbingly mind provoking. The 3 minute segment was better then 90% of Kill Bill 2 IMO.
BTW, how was the Skating Gymnastics spectacular this year? I blew it off for the GPF and the Broncos game.
well I enjoy the old CHRISTmas classics. The ones I grew up on and such...
but I have most of those on tape or DVD now so I don't bother to watch on TV anymore (not a fan of commercials)
I like the classic movies.........."Meet Me In St. Louis", "It's A Wonderful Life", "A Christmas Story", and "The Bishop's Wife". My all time favorite Christmas movie is "Love, Actually".

I wasn't correcting you, just putting MY religion/holiday into the mix... I hate typing xmas... and if we can still say Chanakah, Kwanzaa, and Yule, etc etc etc then we can still say Christmas.

Oh, I didn't get the impression you were. I was acutely clarifying why I put the term - rather then listing all the holiday names this time of year. I guess I wasn't clear - my fault, so what I meant by "X-mas" all the celebrations that everyone has this time of year. And I am right there with you on what I say is "Christmas." But I take "Xmas" as meaning all that are celebrated this time of year. Even though that is probably not the correct way I should go about it either.

I was just glued to the TV watching all my favorites.
Let's see I watched:
1. Miracle on 34th street
2. Meet me in St. Louis
3. Christimas Carol
4. A Dream for Christimas
6. A house without a Christimas Tree
7. A bundle of joy
8. Little Women
That's all I can remember, but I watched more then this.
