“A Past That Never Existed, A Future That Never Arrived.

Jeb Lund writes about Hallmark holiday movies. “Last year, my friend David Roth and I started a podcast dedicated to sincerely reviewing these movies on their own terms, even if the process entails a lot of teasing about the channel’s conspicuous dedication to filling plots with literal angels, literal Santa Clauses, and overabundant ziggurats of dinner rolls. We did it for the same reason many people turned to marathoning beloved TV shows in the aftermath of the 2016 election: However implausible, soft, supernatural, or overdetermined they might be, their goal is to not be about our Hell World.”
