TFGIF's celebration of the holiday season continues, and this time we're talking about our favorite festive movies from the 90s, such as Home Alone and Jingle All the Way. But that's not all! Join us as we remember which toys all 90s kids had at the top of their wishlists, read an actual letter Katie wrote to Santa Claus in 1994, and discuss the results of some holiday-themed polls from our Twitter feed.
It's a Christmas miracle! TFGIF is back with a new episode! And this time, Drew and Katie are mixing things up a little, talking about holiday-themed episodes from six different 90s shows: Hey Arnold, Rugrats, Rocko's Modern Life, Boy Meets World, Sabrina the Teenage Witch and Full House. What are our own Christmas traditions? What present do we both hope to get from Santa each year, now that we're adults? Listen in and find out!
Pop quiz, hot shots! There's a bus with Keanu Reeves, Sandra Bullock and a bomb on it. What do you do? You watch the damn movie and listen to Katie and Drew dissect the bus jump, the sexiness of Keanu and Sandra's closing line. Join us in our review of Speed and enjoy a movie that holds up surprisingly well!
