Consumage: New Shows & Christmas Movies

Verizon decided to give us Showtime for free until February which at the time seemed awesome but now I realize it was ridiculously smart ploy to get us to watch Homeland and force us to subscribe. We’re about to that point because this show is living up to the hype. We’ve watched four episodes this week. I don’t care what anyone says, I like Californication. Other shows I’m interested in checking out Episodes, House of Lies, Dexter, Ray Donovan, Weeds, & Shameless.

It’s Christmas time which means I’ll be watching all the typical Christmas media. Charlie Brown Christmas has it’s 50th anniversary on Monday. 

Friday premieres Bill Murray’s, A Very Murray Christmas, on Netflix and his Christmas classic Scrooged on AMC. 

Last night, We already watched White Christmas on Netflix, which is a story of two song and dance men make their way up the easy coast with a sister duo to help save their former general’s Vermont Inn from bankruptcy. It’s one of my wife’s favorites. 

We were putting up out tree last night so we also watched, Miracle on 34th Street, which is one of my top five. A lovable crazy man who believes he truly is Santa and sets off an unattentional marketing revolution before he’s committed by a wannabe mental health professional and is later freed during a comical trail that leads to the US Postal Service declaring him to be Santa Claus by delivering all the undelivered letters addressed to the North Pole to the judges bench.

On Saturday, my favorite Christmas movie airs on NBC, It’s a Wonderful Life. A movie everyone should watch when you feel like you haven’t made a difference.

My Top 5 Christmas Movies:

  1. It’s a Wonderful Life
  2. Miracle on 34th Street
  3. Scrooged
  4. Christmas Vacation 
  5. A Christmas Story 

What’s your top 5 and why?
