On paper, this should be the quintessential holiday AND Hallmark movie: Mean Girls' Lacey Chabert runs out of her family's toaster strudel savings and has to move back to Idaho, where she meets sentient mashed potato and former high school classmate Danny (Hallmark mainstay Brennan Elliot), who happens to be the music teacher at her daughter's new school.
Meanwhile her wacky aunt Sara (Hocus Pocus' Kathy Najimy) is valiantly casting spells and hexes to maintain the stability of a reality where Mariah Carey (Glitter, which I can't believe we didn't mention once) is the star and director of a Christmas movie where nobody sings or even hums "All I Want for Christmas Is You." Our special guest Nicole Slipp (aka "Dr. Slipp") tries to help us make sense of it all.
This is our last planned episode of the original slate we had for the podcast. We hope you've enjoyed it. We really appreciate your support. We haven't decided yet if we will do more full episodes in this format, but keep an eye on your RSS feed for some outtakes and whatever else we can think of to do between now and 2021 while still having some fun holidays ourselves. Those of you who are patrons, thanks again and watch for your xmas cards in the mail soonish.
