The 2016 Irredeemable Christmas Special is Almost Here

Ho ho ho and all that stuff to all our merry listeners!  I know we left you with a bit of a tease about this years “Irredeemable Christmas Special” and I am here to rectify that for you right now.

Within the next seven days we will be giving ourselves an early present by working out the least and most redeemable movies we watched this year, before letting go and not even trying to redeem “He-Man and She-Ra – A Christmas Special”.  Want to check it out in advance?  Well it’s available to watch for free on YouTube!

If you want a taste of what you are in for, check out our previous specials on “The Star Wars Holiday Special” and “Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever”.  Don’t forget to also have a look at our list of redeeming features movies we have checked out.

To be ready for this years special event bookmark our homepage, follow us on Twitter or Facebook, or subscribe to the podcast on iTunes, or via our RSS feed.

Grumpy Cat TV MovieWow, Kristian and Trevor actually made it to the end of the year after making some big changes to the podcast along the way.

What better way to celebrate than to revisit the redeeming features movies for 2015 and discuss the best and worst of a pretty dodgy bunch of films.

We don’t stop there though.  In what may become a Christmas tradition we check out the Lifetime Channel’s Christmas spectacular from 2014, Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever.  And as a special present to ourselves we don’t bother trying to redeem it!
