It will probably take me a couple of months to try to do a pseudo-year in review (or, more likely, I'll quit halfway through) but as with all bright ideas, I'll start off by announcing the intention, then hope y'all forget about it by the time I get to G. Let's aim to knock out "A" tomorrow, shall we?
I realized last night as I was singing along with Boris Karloff that I hadn’t yet posted my list of holiday tv specials and when they were airing. (Um, anyone who missed the “real” “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” last night, my most sincere apologies). It was on up against the Jim Carrey version and it made me wonder: is there a generation gap between those who prefer the 1966 original to the 2000 life-action remake? In the interest of full disclosure, I must admit to having never seen the remake, and I confess I have no desire to indulge [also see: Charlie and the Chocolate Factory].
BTW, have you seen this? I would consider adding it to my Amazon wish list, if only for the first three.
It looks like not only has the Grinch gone by the wayside, but Charlie Brown also isn't airing in the next 14 days (at least, not according to TVGuide), but you can still catch the following shows to get into the holiday spirit:
12/2 8 pm Santa Claus is Coming to Town (ABC)
12/3 8 pm Rudolph, The Red-Nosed Reindeer (CBS)
12/5 8 pm How the Grinch Stole Christmas (ABC)[non-animated version…if you're into that kind of thing]
I'll do some deeper digging and start a running list on my sidebar again this year (yes, StephyL, I'll look up Nestor for you)
