Episode notes

The Christmas House

It’s our Christmas Spectacular! And we are pretty much focusing exclusively on Hallmark Christmas movies this episode. To give us a hand, we are joined by Esquire writer and Hallmark Christmas movie enthusiast, Justin Kirkland. At the beginning of the episode, we are also joined by special guest Santa Claus to help come up with some Hallmark movie storylines for next season. Then we discuss the new queer-friendly Hallmark movie, The Christmas House. Alonso completes his final ‘Christmas Minute’ of the year AND reveals his ‘Top 5 Christmas Movies of the Year.’ And, to finish things off, we give our ‘Staff PIcks.’
