Festive TV fun…

But first…
Dulltown, Europe: Today’s random adjectives are: flighty, fusiform, snug, sudden, cervine, and bulbous.

Whoa! It’s a bit chilly today. I think I’ll put the heat on and sit in front of the TV for a while this afternoon – I wonder what films are available…

A Bulldog for Christmas.
‘On Christmas vacation, a cynical college student is magically transformed into a bulldog until she can learn the meaning of family and the Christmas spirit.’ (2013)

‘Wild West tale starring Audie Murphy and Joan Staley. A sheriff goes on the trail of a gang who robbed a train and kidnapped a dance hall girl.’ (1966)

A Perfect Christmas.
‘Festive romantic comedy starring Claire Coffee and Ryan McPartlin. A woman is helped by a shop mannequin after she suffers a blow to the head, and begins to fall for him.’ (2012)

The Real St Nick.
‘Romantic comedy starring Torrey DeVitto and Callard Harris. A pretty psychiatrist falls for a young man who thinks that he is Santa Claus after hitting his head on a rock.’ (2012)

Comanche Station.
‘Jefferson Cody (Randolph Scott) searches for his wife (Nancy Gates), who is being held captive by the Comanches. But the Native Americans are soon the least of his worries.’ (1960)

Annie Claus is Coming to Town.
‘Santa’s daughter takes her first trip away from the North Pole during the Christmas season hoping to find adventure and love in sunny California.’ (no date)

Mr Saint Nick.
‘Lighthearted seasonal comedy starring Kelsey Grammer and Colin Cunningham. Santa retires from his duties and hands the reins to his errant son, who cannot quite handle the responsibilities.’ (2002)

Home for Christmas.
‘An ex-thief form a yuletide bond with a young girl after breaking into her family’s car at Christmas time and being made to work for its owner. Stars Mickey Rooney.’ (1990)

Santa’s Summer House.
‘Bad weather forces a band of holidaymakers to divert to a mysterious island. From the moment they arrive, the island appears to have a magical Christmas feel about it.’ (2012)

I think I should hit myself on the head with a rock instead.
