What Would Your Holiday TV Movie Be? (00:28:58)
We went a bit old school and covered a topic where we each talked a little bit about all those Christmas and holiday TV movies you find this time of year on ABC Family, Hallmark Channel, Lifetime, ION, etc. Within that we said a little about what each of our holiday TV movies would be and then put it out to you to tell us what yours would be or to create one for us. Then Amrie offered up a copy of Zoo on Blu-ray to giveaway to those who answer the following question in the comments below:
What would our/your holiday TV movie be? Tell us who would star, what it would be about, etc. Give us a short synopsis. Have some fun with it.
