Anything with cute elves and mawkish songs sung by American teenagers trying to look like 9 year-olds.

And if they try to foist the Sound of bloody Music on us one more time in the name of 'tradition' (ie: we might as well recoup our expenditure on the film and show it again) I'll put my damn foot through the screen, especially since we've had to suffer the current 'Maria' TV farce.

Ditto for 'The Great Escape' -- isn't it about time they were let out for persistent behaviour?

Thank goodness we've 'escaped' down under. As Christmas is in the middle of summer over here, everyone's either away on holiday during the festive season, or out on the deck having a barbie, or at the beach. (Or all three). Hence, virtually no-one watches telly over Chrimbo, so they don't bother putting on any 'special, festive programming'. Hooray! Very Happy

I'd also like to put in a vote for the Sound of Music Evil or Very Mad I was forced to sit through it once!

Sick of the sight of Santa Clause the Movie - it wasn't all that 1st time 'round!
