Ah, The Holidays...  
...That time of year when you feel that old nostalgia, when you feel that urge to relive a piece of your childhood through the magic of television entertainment. For some people, maybe that's watching A Christmas Carol, or perhaps It's A Wonderful Life. For me, it's watching...

...The Day After on SciFi. Once again watching my childhood home get vaporized in a mushroom cloud. Kansas City, my first city. My first home -- but certainly not the last, oh no -- obliterated by nuclear weapons, thanks to the magic of special effects.

Good times, good times.

It's been more than twenty years since I've seen that movie. It wasn't as bad as I expected, but maybe my standards have simply been flattened by the quality of the average made-for-SciFi movie.

Remember to drink your Ovaltine
Thanks to TBS airing it 24 hours on Christmas day, we always watch "A Christmas Story" every year.
