8-bit Christmas – The Review Show 187

For our final episode of the year, we watched the new HBO Max holiday movie 8-Bit Christmas! A young girl begs her dad for a cell phone and he tells her the story of the gift he wanted most when he was her age: a Nintendo Entertainment System. The dad narrates flashbacks to 1988 illustrating the antics he and his friends got into trying to obtain an NES for Christmas, and the impact this quest had on his family.

The Whatnauts present The Review Show, a weekly book club style podcast for all sorts of pop culture. We cover a variety of genres and mediums movies, TV shows, comics, anime, manga, audio dramas picking out a specific piece of entertainment that we can cover in a week’s time. Every episode, your intrepid co-hosts Kyle and Melissa dive into the media of the week (with a spoiler warning!), give recommendations, and take turns pitching the next topic. For one episode a month, we check in with continuing coverage on a longer title, like a full TV series or comics run, and follow it all the way to the end. Join us for fun discussions on a wild variety of entertainment you should know!
