Episode 12: Christmas Prince: A Royal Wedding

Well, friends, the North Hole has come full circle with our last episode of the season, as we dissect the sequel to Netflix’s modern classic, Christmas Prince. Actress, comedian, and science educator, Sophie Shrand (@sciencewithsophie), joins us in roasting King Richard and Amber’s long-awaited and deeply underwhelming wedding in Christmas Prince: A Royal Wedding or, as we like to call it, 2 Christmas 2 Prince: Aldovia Drift.


Episode 11: I'll Be Home for Christmas

Oh Johnathan Taylor Thomas. Your legs are so short, but your list of failures is so long. The North Hole welcomes Dylan Fowler, pop culture expert and brilliant human, to discuss I’ll Be Home for Christmas, JTT’s 1998 attempt to break out of the shadow of Home Improvement. I’ll tell you what, IT DIDN’T WORK! This lil’ guy couldn’t carry a big Disney Christmas movie. But it’s ok, baby. I couldn’t either!


Episode 10: Christmas at Holly Lodge

We’re really starting to hate Christmas over here. Holly Lodge is a perfect middle-of-the-road Christmas movie. I often found myself asking: What else could I be doing with my life? The plot is simple: woman is single, man is (maybe) evil, woman runs a business and is behind on the rent. Who can help her? The man can! And we follow them through the joys of skiing together, baking cookies together, the works.

Violet Lucca— film critic, brilliant human— joined us to talk about a little piece of trash that Hallmark gifted us with just a few short years ago.


Episode 9: A Diva's Christmas Carol

We accidentally watched a good movie! How did that happen?!

A Diva’s Christmas Carol starring the BEAUTIFUL Vanessa Williams was a made-for-TV VH1 movie from 2000. The fashion is on point and the acting is, well, it’s not great but it’s not THE WORST like everything else we’ve watched.

Comedian and actor Karolena Theresa joined our conversation and we all just mooned over Vanessa’s cheekbones. It was a blast.


Episode 8: A Dogwalker's Christmas Tale

You love dogs? Too bad! There are barely any in this movie! And there are barely any jokes! It's really bad! Join Katie and Amanda as they go on a journey with Mean Girls' Aaron Samuels and his costar, a baked potato.

We’re joined this week by comedian Arti Gollapudi. She’s brilliant!


Episode 7: Holiday in Handcuffs

In the grand tradition of Snowglobe, ABC Family delivered us all with a gift in December of 2007. Mario Lopez and Melissa Joan Heart made the dream team in a Christmas comedy about a woman kidnapping a man and holding him hostage. Such a cute and fun premise for a rom com!

We really enjoy ripping this one to shreds with our dear friend David Tarafa, Austin comic artist and Mario Lopez fan.

Episode 6: Merry Kissmas

This one we chose on title alone! Merry Kissmas is a 2015 piece of hot trash available on Netflix. We talked about kissing, Christianity, and low-budget Christmas decorations with our dear friend Lucy Breidenthal, who is a talented religious and social justice educator. She’s extraordinary, this movie is not.

Episode 5: Christmas Town

Christmas Town is a REAL classic. This was really what The North Hole was made for. We’re covering the blandest of the bland here. There are two protagonists that have zero chemistry. And quite the horrible son character who looks like a ‘90’s lesbian (not mad at this let me tell you). Don’t worry, baby, Santa’s got a great cameo.

Episode 4: Snowglobe

There are a few episodes on this ‘cast where we get to profile movies that we actually LOVE. Snowglobe starring Christina Milian is one of them. The premise is from a Twilight Zone episode: Woman goes into a snow globe to escape her life. The choices that Director Ron Lagomarsino baffle me to this day. We’re joined by comedian Sherm Jacobs for the ‘cast and I’ll tell you what— he wasn’t a fan!

Episode 3: Gingerdead Man

Gingerdead Man: He’s an aggressive lil’ fella that’s out to get ya! We watched Gingerdead Man and there was a whole lot of yelling about baked goods for this one. Comedian and Jew-About-Town KT Behrmann and Filmmaker and Christmas Queen Amanda Justice argue about baking techniques and murder techniques. The North Hole welcomed a special guest this week— comedian and improv star Matthew Ramage. Do yourself a favor and watch this gem (it’s only an hour long!) and then tune in.

Episode 2: Santa with Muscles

I can’t really tell you what happens in Santa with Muscles. It was kind of everything. And nothing. But god we had fun watching it. Comedian and Jew About Town KT Behrmann and Filmmaker and Christmas Queen Amanda Justice break down the the film (can I even call this a film?!) Santa with Muscles. Our biggest point of agreement was on how good Amanda would look in a sleeveless Santa suit.

Episode 1: A Christmas Prince

Is Christmas almost here? Kind of! But let’s get into the spirit anyway!

Comedian and Jew About Town KT Behrmann and Filmmaker and Christmas Queen Amanda Justice break down the Netflix original film A Christmas Prince. This film had it all: Christmas orphans, a Tiny Tim Character, fun Gay Villains, and, of course, plenty of flirting in fake snow. What’s not to love? We’ll be leading you through every delicious second of this modern classic.
