Movies24 is now scheduling back-to-back low-end Christmas films. What would happen when I went on a watching bender?

It's only November, but already film channel Movies 24 has transformed itself into Christmas 24. It now broadcasts nothing but Christmas films. Not classic Christmas films, either – these are all TV movies and Hallmark specials and straight-to-dvd anomalies.

It's basically a big will-they-won't-they story. »
