A Very Special Paranormal View Christmas edition
The show started off with the
End of the World sketch,
which lasted a few minutes, so we were able to relax.
Henry had not realized he could get sound effects right online, so there weren't any; he'd asked me to do some vocally static-hiss at certain points, and as we went on the air I muted my mic and completely forgot I'd done so, so my hissing went unheard.
We discussed toys of the 1960s-70s and 80s and such.
Kat did a fifteen question Christmas Quiz with us, at which we pretty much sucked.
Before the second break, we discussed
(Kat providing some information of which

I read aloud via one of my appearances on one of
After the break, during which Henry played a holiday promo so old it mentioned numerous long-since-gone show hosts,
Barbara reported our having listeners in the US, Canada and Mexico.
We then discussed various Christmas-y and holiday movies, and a bit of TV:
I had already pointed out the hilariously bad Mexican
movie, which had been well-riffed as
Mystery Science Theatre 3000
not to be confused with
Santa Claus Conquers the Martians
which MST3K also took on in
Henry leaned towards
National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation,
Miracle on 34th Street
I posited that the best combination Christmas-set film as well as best rom-com being London-based
Also mentioned were
as well as the proper
A Christmas Carol
Kat and I shared our mutual dislike of the sterile 2006
A Christmas Story;
in my case my having seen the far superior
well-made PBS adaptations
The Phantom of the Open Hearth.
Henry pointed out
the TV movie which introduced
plus the Tim Allen's
The Santa Clause
Nightmare Before Christmas.
We mentioned animated films and TV specials, such as
which I'd not seen and Kat concurred my suspicions it not being up to its promotional hype.
I pointed out the
Abed's Uncontrollable Christmas,
A Charlie Brown Christmas,
the little known Disney's
One Magic Christmas
(one of Henry's top favourites),
we couldn't go without mentioning the proper, original
It's a Wonderful Life,
How the Grinch Stole Christmas
The Muppet Christmas Carol.
We also discussed varied Christmas feast food/s.
Tonight we had listeners from the US, UK, Canada and Belgium.
In the Skype chat, Kat pointed out an article of celebrants over the conclusion of the
5125-year cycle in the Mayan calendar.
Early in the show, Henry pointed out the next week we would have Tarot Readings by both
I provided the show's various page locations
Paranormal View hub page,
that we're findable
we wished our loyal and new listeners happy holiday wishes,
and we were wrapped.
