FDL Movie Night Preview: Holiday TV Specials
There’s something about holidays that TV just can’t resist. And well, neither can we, because these shows are just so awesome each for their own reasons. So here’s a preview of what we’ll be discussing tonight on FDL Movie Night at 5pm
First up the Star Wars Christmas Special, from 1978. Poor George Lucas. It’s just awful. But it also credits Bruce Villanch as a writer, so expect some subversive humor. We’ve posted the condensed version for you, but you can watch the full version here, in 10 minute increments, starting with part one.
Alfred Hitchcock was not immune to the joys/horrors of Christmas, so we’re presenting Alfred Hitchock Presents “Back for Christmas.” And because the work on the interwebs is never done, how could we resist Mary Tyler Moore coping with Christmas in the newsroom from the show’s first season?
Please join in discussing these and other Very Special Holiday shows at 5pm west coast time on FDL’s front page.
