Now that we’ve come to the end of the holiday movie road for this year, it’s time to take a look back at the thousands (or, at least, many dozens) of new holiday movies we watched.

Together with my best friend, friend of the show, and partner in all things holiday movie-related, Anna Rendell, I’m here to review the 2021 season of new holiday movies. It was hard but we did it. We picked our top few favorites from Hallmark, Lifetime, and all the other channels.

Of course, because this is The Couch, where rabbit trails and side notes are always welcome, we also get into Lifetime’s scheduling choices and the mystery of Jake Epstein. And we also tap dance around our true feelings about Corbin Bleu’s tap dancing routine, but I think you can read between the lines. We’re just…big fans.

It’s a fun episode, and you’re going to love it. So, let’s get started!
