  1. Anyone got a guide yet? Anything good and or eye catching on? Or is it the usual drab collection of repeats?

    i bet there will be some crap christmas movie on that day!!!

    who agrees?
     
  4. If The Great Escape isn't on this year then I won't be happy.

    It's usually a standard xmas movie, but the last couple of years it hasn't been on. Why deny everyone the right to fall asleep in front of it after eating too much?

    CBS in the blew their load to quick. They played the Charlie Brown Christmas Special already! That's their prime material, it could quite possibly be the greatest Christmas show ever made and they didn't save it for Christmas Day or Christmas eve.

    ITV did the same with Love Actually, which is a pretty fitting movie to show on Christmas Day but they went and showed it about 10 days ago.

    Is that the story of bay-be jebus? Or maybe the South Park Critters Christmas? (Hail Satan)

    Anyway, some good xmas tv for you all in 5 parts;

    Think I missed that once. The Only Fools and Horses when he falls through the bar must've been on Beeb 1. That or The Great Escape.

    They Replay it back to back all day Christmas day on TBS (cable and satelite) here in the states. My wife cant stand it for some reason...says it's depressive...but it's freaking hillarious.
    My all time fav, though, is National Lampoons Christmas Vacation. I will forever set Clark Griswald as my mark of Fatherhood perfection.
     
  18. National Lampoon is quality.
