Episode 516 - CNI, Actually

Reviews: The Adventures of Chrissie Claus, A Christmas Carol, Holiday Wars, Holidaze, Superf*ckers Save Christmas, Scrooge and Santa

Happy Christmas! Jimmy is in New Jersey visiting his sister and the family for Christmas. So, he brings you this quickie, some would say weird, solo episode full of Christmas joy (and music) and lots of babbling. And since it is the holiday, he decides to review Christmas comic books. You'll have to listen in to find out which were naughty and which were nice. He briefly talks about some It's A Wonderful Life tidbits, recent casting of Paul Rudd as Ant Man and Vin Diesel as Groot, and the persistent rumor that JK Rowling is producing a Harry Potter stage play. Only one news bit but it'll tug your heartstrings as it's about a girl with cancer in Vallejo, CA whom gets a Wonder Girl type wish. Plus a special message from Hugh Grant, the prime minister of the UK. Leave your iTunes comments! 5 stars and nothing but love!
