Whew! We are already feeling the stress of holiday busyness and a ramped-up movie schedule over here! Anyone else?

It’s okay. We can do this.

THE CHRISTMAS COUCH is 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 – even when we’re hit with 10 new movies in a weekend we’re working and out of town!

Each week during the holiday season, we’re picking 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, we’ll talk about our disappointment in the networks not stepping up their diversity or representation. {Hint: Hallmark, we’re talking about you!})


Wanna watch Hallmark movies but don’t have cable? Frndly TV is a streaming app that has all three (THREE!) Hallmark channels, as well as several other family-friendly channels. You can watch live or on demand, and it’s as low as $5.99. Check it out with a FREE 7-day trial here!

Anyway, Anna and I are here to guide you through this holiday movie season, one gingerbread house and clumsy leading lady at a time. Grab your hot cocoa and let’s get started!

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.
