As I set my DVR for this December, I look up shows on IMDB to find out how interested I am in recording them. Then, I put the bad ones in a list of shows I’m purposely NOT recording.
Here’s what I have so far this season (most of these are on Lifetime):
The Dog Who Saved Christmas: This just looks really really lame
Together Again for the First Time: Looks too cheesy, not actually heartwarming and more importantly, doesn’t look funny.
Home by Christmas: looks really depressing
Comfort and Joy: I hate switching bodies/lives movies
Holiday Switch: same reason as above
Christmas in Paradise: from the description — “..two bereaved families…emotionally complicated…deep soul-searching…” no thanks.
Christmas Child: also looks depressing and un-funny
A Dad for Christmas: Not what the title suggests. I thought it would be about a boy who wants a dad for christmas, but actually it’s about a teenage boy who is about to BE a Dad for Christmas….ummm…just no.
Christmas Shoes: based on that cheesy tearjerker song (and apparently the book). no thanks.
Thomas Kinkade’s The Christmas Cottage — the title was enough for me to pass.
