This week, even though it is after Thanksgiving, we will spend some time on Thanksgiving entertainment.
First, John was able to watch Peppermint, and listen as he explains that he is finally coming around to liking Jennifer Garner.
Next, Dhani talks about the movie The Children Act. This doesn’t take long because she was quite disappointed in the film. She still loves Emma Thompson, but the movie did not rise to meet her talent.
Then we move on the Netflix movie The Christmas Chronicles starring Kurt Russell as Santa Claus. Dhani really enjoyed this new take on the story of Santa and teaching kids to believe.
Then John and Dhani finally finished the latest season of the Great British Bake Off and they gush over this amazing season and the bakers on the show.
Last week Dhani forgot to list her favorite Thanksgiving movies, so she lists these even though the holiday is over. I think they work for the entire holiday season, so perhaps people can still enjoy them for the next few weeks anyway.
And finally, instead of an Actors’ Corner this week, we are ranking our Top 5 Friends Thanksgiving episodes and comparing our choices to the podcast Pop Culture Nickel. Dhani is a super fan of Friends, so forgive her for perhaps going on a bit about her love of the show… but it is an interesting discussion.
