It's a Television Time Capsule
2 October 2017 | by Christmas-ReviewerSee all my reviews

BEWARE OF BOGUS REVIEWS & REVIEWERS. SOME REVIEWERS HAVE ONLY ONE REVIEW. WHEN ITS A POSITIVE REVIEW THAT TELLS ME THEY WERE INVOLVED WITH THE PRODUCTION & THAT IS WHAT IS GOING ON HERE FOR THIS FILM! NOW I HAVE REVIEWED OVER 300 Christmas MOVIES. I HAVE NO AGENDA. I AM FARE.

Listen variety shows on television were very popular. What sank them was "Saturday Night Live". Now for years A LIST superstars of the day would do a "Christmas Specials". Now they host "Saturday Night Live".

Andy Williams was one person who was always someone you could count on to deliver a great special. This special I am reviewing is a "Best Of" which is comprised of several of his specials.

Now variety shows like this are very dated. The jokes are not much better than the cornfield jokes that were a regular segment on "Hee Haw" however this is a Christmas Special and the humor is not suppose to be edgy. This is like watching a concert and enjoying the a nice cold Winters Evening!
