So this is Christmas, and what have we done?
Well, mostly I’ve watched the Snoop Dogg Just Eat advert on a loop while wearing larger-lady leggings, but it still feels like a rather eventful year all the same.
And as it’s not all over just yet, the question must be asked – can Christmas TV in 2020 really comfort us? Or will it be chilling dystopian background noise, like the sound of Frosty the Snowman coming through the pipes of the air conditioning system at Nakatomi Plaza?
Chances are we’ll all be too drunk to care, which is a good job really, as the Christmas schedules are jam-packed with repeats, football and old kids’ films that everyone on earth has a dusty DVD of in a carrier bag under the bed.
For some reason, the powers that be at the BBC have chosen to round off one of the most challenging years in history by showing back-to-back Kung Fu Panda movies, Cars 3 and Grease.
Put it this way, you can save money on the Christmas Radio Times this year by reusing the one you had any time between 1978 and 2010.
