Ho ho ho, Jingle Babes!

2021 has been somewhat of a garbage year, so what better way to send off the year than with 12 hours of garbage Christmas movies. 12 hours, 8 movies, 6 microsleeps, 4 meal/toilet breaks, 2 podcasters, 1 movie marathon to rule them all.

This year's movies:

  • One Magic Christmas (1985)
  • Stuffings (2021)
  • An American Girl Story – Maryellen 1955: Extraordinary Christmas (2016)
  • The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus (1985)
  • Ebenezer (1998)
  • Ace & The Christmas Miracle (2021)
  • Nantucket Noel (2021)
  • Cupid For Christmas (2021)

Thanks for all your support this year. We really appreciate it.

Ho ho ho, Jingle Babes!

It's time for our longest running tradition, A Baggs Family Christmas! Sarah's brothers, Jeremy and Julian, join us to talk about one of IMDB's lowest rated movies of all time, Kirk Cameron's Saving Christmas.

BONUS - we play everyone's favourite 80s sibling game show, I'm Telling.

That's why it's a long, long episode. Enjoy!

It's a Christmas tradition as old as time itself, when we invite Anna Cherry and Harry Brimage from The Consumption to watch the worst Christmas special of all time! This is our 5th time and this time we're playing a drinking game - we invite you to join us (Check our socials for the rules).

Our first guest in almost one whole year! And it's one of our favourites, Weekly Planet's Nick Mason! And while we have pop culture royality like Maso on, let's talk about a pop culture juggernaut, The REAL Ghostbuster. 

Come for the banter, stay to hear Sarah play the trombone.

Lassie is a TV show about a dog staring at his trainer offscreen. It's probably the oldest show we've covered on the show. It's 60 years old which means most of the people who worked on this show are dead now. That's a good thing.

Boo boo boo, Jingle Graves!

Prompted by a discussion on our Twitter we are covering Disney Channel tween sitcom, The Suite Life Of Zack & Cody, for our first ever Halloween episode!

Is this the scariest thing ever committed to video? No, but it's probably scarier than 'The Monster Mash' and a Skippy parody and that's what scared us as kids!

I loved watching Step By Step as a child. Maybe I did. Or maybe it was just on TV and I watched every single sitcom I possibly could. Step By Step is the forgotten member of the NBC TGIF Comedy Line-Up and should remain forgotten. John Astin still rocks my world though.

There's a scene where two men eat eggs.

Ho(p) ho(p) ho(p) Jingle Babes!

Today we're tackling Easter. And in the slim pantheon of Easter classic, one show stands apart - a little Aussie gem of a sitcom called The Adventure Of Lano & Woodley. In this extremely silly episode:

-a spotty pair of socks start a feud

-the Easter Bunny is decapitated by a helicopter

-the world's smallest Easter egg is stolen by a friend

-and much more.

It's a personal favourite of both young Michael and young Sarah, so we hope you can track it down or watch 'Lano and Woodley - Fly' on Amazon Prime.

We take a journey into the distant future of 2001. OK, it was twenty years ago but for us that's kinda recent. Angela Anaconda is a kids TV show with bizarre visuals and a feud deeper than the Hatfields and the Maccoys but how does it handle Christmas?

We're back! It's 2021 and Christmas needs saving again! Luckily we're up to the task. Especially when joined by animator Ashleigh Beevers (https://www.instagram.com/mustashleigh/ ) and writer/voice actor Fabian Lapham (https://www.instagram.com/the_count_of_monte_chrisco/ )! We start the year off with The Sooty Show, a British kids show where a dude lives in a sharehouse with a magic crime-solving bear, neurotic dog and a gaslighting, homophobic panda.
