Fa la la la la, la la la laaaaaa!
Tis the season for us to dig into our gift bags and deliver, to our loyal and new readers alike, the best wishes we can bestow upon fellow TV Fanatics.
These are the types of presents that may have come only once in a lifetime. You may have already enjoyed them, or some may be completely new to you.
Hopefully, you'll find something in this sack Santa carries directly from us to you that you can experience for the first time.
May your days be bright, your holidays light and while with family and friends you unite (I couldn't resist).
A Gift of Sports Night from Brittany Frederick
My eternal wish in life is that everyone watches Sports Night. So I would give that show to the world and let us experience its awesomeness over again. Because it's still the best show I've ever seen, and yet apparently a bunch of people think Aaron Sorkin started in TV with The West Wing.
A Gift of Science Fiction from Ron Gilmer
I would go back in time and fix the timeline so everyone could be hap-oh, scratch that.
I wish everyone could feel the joy I felt from watching The Twilight Zone and The Outer Limits as a kid. Everyone has seen them a gazillion times, but seeing them for the 1st time as a kid opened my mind to science and a whole new way of thinking.
Some Vintage Doctor Who from Leila Jutton
I wish everyone could experience the weird cocktail of emotions induced by the greatest Doctor Who Christmas special of all time: Voyage of the Damned, also known as The One with Kylie Minogue on the Space Titanic. Most of the episode is a giddy, goofy disaster adventure against the backdrop of the holidays; think the sheer ridiculousness of The Poseidon Adventure, but with David Tennant and Kylie flirting their pants off the whole time. But, the episode then surprises you – as the best episodes of Doctor Who usually do – with an ending that serves an emotional sucker-punch straight to the heart. The only show that ever makes me cry is Doctor Who, and this episode is one of the saddest, while somehow also one of the most fun!
A Comic Classic from Jack Ori
I would love for the Jack Benny Program to be available for everyone to watch. It's my absolute favorite classic series and not enough people have any idea what it was like.
Two 90's Teen Gifts from Miranda Wicker
I would give everyone Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Dawson's Creek, two shows that hooked me on the idea of watching TV with a critical eye instead of just for enjoyment.
A Little Leverage from Jasmine Blu
I would gift everyone the pure joy of watching Leverage. TV Fanatic aside, there are only a handful of shows that I can watch over and over again and love every bit as much as I did the first time I watched it. Leverage is at the top of that list. When I'm having a bad day or I just need to smile, enter this merry band of non-law-abiding misfits making this cold, cruel, awful world a better place. Not only do the world's greatest mastermind, grifter, hitter, hacker, and thief become a family, but they sort of become part of yours too. The world could use more Leverage.
