We are back after a full weekend of holiday movies, and we have lots of opinions to share! Remember, THE CHRISTMAS COUCH will be a series of special episodes of The Couch Podcast devoted to holiday movies. My friend Anna and I are hooked on holidays and honored to be your guides through this holiday movie season.

After all, when the powers that be are hitting us with nearly 100 brand-new movies, you need help choosing which ones to watch!

And that’s where Anna and I come in. Each week during the holiday season, we’re going to pick our favorite new movies from the weekend before and then make sure you know when they’re playing again in case they aren’t all saved on your DVR. (And some weeks, LIKE THIS ONE, we’ll tell you which movie should be avoided at all costs.)

We’re here to guide you through this holiday movie season, one gingerbread house and Christmas pageant at a time. Grab your hot cider and let’s get started!

What should you watch next?


Every month, we are bombarded with new TV series and movies—and it can be overwhelming to figure out what to watch! (I know, I know, what a problem to have!) I'm here to help. My monthly Watch Guides list out all the returning series, new series, and new movies, along with premiere dates and where to watch them. Plus, I tell you my personal picks for the month to help you narrow it all down.

Drop your name and email here, and I'll send you this month's Watch Guide right away!
