My stocking overrunneth. Washington Post features the “Do-It-Yourself TV Christmas Movie,” with choose-your-own lead actors including James Brolin and the indefatigable Meredith Baxter. Eye would add Mark Harmon to the list of male leads and an appearance by a winsome Raven Simone knock-off, but this is gold.
Then there’s a little gift courtesy of Dave Larsen of the Dayton Daily News, who pulled together a hilarious list of the worst holiday films and TV movies. The latter includes a sorry attempt to capitalize on the Pac-Man craze entitled “Christmas Comes to Pac-Land,” and “The Star Wars Holiday Special,” complete with the original cast plus, I shit you not, Jefferson Starship and Bea Arthur.
