My new holiday favourite
29 October 2015 | by erinkathleendeanSee all my reviews

Every year Dan Moody returns home to Australia for Christmas and we're given a glimpse into the year that was for the Moodys. It's a brilliant, layered comedy told in an original way with a fantastic cast.

The show not only holds up when re-watching episodes, but the true genius of the writing is revealed as early episodes set up payoffs that come much later. It's a pity there are only six episodes, but the story continues with The Moodys.

I truly hope they'll do another series, but either way, A Moody Christmas is going to be a staple of my holiday viewing.
