189: NOW! That’s what I call Christmas Streaming Lockdown 2

Christmas is almost upon us (unless Bodger stuffs up the holidays rather than the turkey). The At The Flicks household is buzzing with that pre Xmas excitement. Graham is demanding we screen his Lethal Weapon box set (again), Neil continues to tell us tales of his golf round with Santa (who he said held a grudge and gave him no presents that year) and Jeff is hoping for a soapbox in his Christmas stocking!

At the Flicks · 189: NOW that's what I call Christmas Streaming Lockdown 2

One thing we all agree with is the TV will be permanently on for the holidays. But what to watch? Luckily this podcast has the answer. We brought in TV expert Declan for this special Carry On Christmas Streaming episode. As much an annual treat for our listeners as Morecombe and Wise. Dec also tells us about some shows we have missed over the last few weeks which may well be worth catching up with following our turkey dinner excesses. This might even be the time to binge watch Downton Abbey (which Neil assures is how he used to live until he fell on hard times and had to stay with the likes of us).

That will be after we get through some of Dec’s recommendations. Indeed, to make sure he has everything covered, Dec has subscribed to Disney Plus. Is there no end to this man’s sacrifices? If like Dec, you are a fan of Scandi dramas, you are in for a treat this Christmas. Also, and not giving too much away there is a Royal Scandal (what another one!), a wonderful remake of a Jules Verne classic, some fantastic documentaries, an M R James treat and some animated shorts which are destined to become classics. For more you will have to listen to the show to find out what has been recommended – that is our air of Christmas mystery.

So if you have the same problem as we do in deciding what to watch, then check out Dec’s recommendations. It may be a cliché, however we believe there his selection has something for everyone.

Whatever you watch, have a great Christmas and may all your selections be wonderful.
