'While JJ Abrams might be one of the world's most brilliant writers, producers & directors, he still manages to find the time to be a great friend. Today, I have the joy of catching up with him as we talk about food, family & friendship on today's episode of Ruthie's Table 4.'For more than 30 years The River Cafe in London, has been the home-from-home of artists, architects, designers, actors, collectors, writers, activists, and politicians. Michael Caine, Glenn Close, JJ Abrams, Steve McQueen, Victoria and David Beckham, and Lily Allen, are just some of the people who love to call The River Cafe home. On Ruthie's Table 4, Rogers sits down with her customers—who have become friends—to talk about food memories. Table 4 explores how food impacts every aspect of our lives. “Foods is politics, food is cultural, food is how you express love, food is about your heritage, it defines who you and who you want to be,” says Rogers. Each week, Rogers invites her guest to reminisce about family suppers and first dates, what they cook, how they eat when performing, the restaurants they choose, and what food they seek when they need comfort. And to punctuate each episode of Table 4, guests such as Ralph Fiennes, Emily Blunt and Alfonso Cuarón, read their favourite recipe from one of the best-selling River Cafe cookbooks.  Table 4 itself, is situated near The River Cafe's open kitchen, close to the bright pink wood-fired oven and next to the glossy yellow pass, where Ruthie oversees the restaurant.

I'm often asked who inspired us when we opened The River Cafe in 1987. Wolfgang Puck is the one of the answers. A few months ago, he came to The River Cafe for dinner with his family, and to everyone working there it felt like a visit from the Gods. To me it was a visit from a mentor, a star, and a friend.  I went to speak with him at his restaurant at the Hotel Bel-Air in LA, where we ate pizza and talked about his life as a chef, his childhood memories and much more.  Join us for this episode of Ruthie's Table 4: Wolfgang Puck.

Do you feel that chill in the air? This holiday season, When We Were Young's listeners will be visited by three all-knowing spirits who serve as guides through the past, present, and future of all things Muppet. Our last episode chronicled the humble beginnings of Kermit and company through their rise to global superstardom with The Muppet Show and The Muppet Movie in the late 70s. In this episode Chris, Becky, and Seth discuss their youthful memories of more recent Muppets exploits like the original MUPPET BABIES cartoon of the 80s, the MUPPETS TONIGHT primetime series that aired on TGIF in the 90s, and a star-studded pop album called KERMIT UNPIGGED that at least one of our hosts cherished. Next we revisit the Muppets' musical retelling of Charles Dickens' classic ghost story in 1992's THE MUPPET CHRISTMAS CAROL, which stars a pitch perfect Michael Caine as yuletide-loathing miser Ebenezer Scrooge, and a bunch of puppets as Bob Cratchit, Tiny Tim, the Marleys, and even the author himself. Then we are confronted by the present and future of Jim Henson's beloved creations since the Muppets were officially taken over by Disney in the early 2000s. Does The Muppet Christmas Carol still warm our hearts and send us out into the snowy streets to pass out savvy pop culture critiques to the needy? Or have the years turned us into cold, cruel Scrooges ready to say, “Bah, humbug!” to this Disneyfied departure from the Muppets' scrappy roots?

This is going to be a two-part podcast, where part 1 will be on the top worst movies of 2022 and the second part will be a bit more optimistic being about the best movies of the year. Now there's a film critic who I often like named Chris Stuckman, you've probably heard of him, but he has a philosophy of not sharing his worst movies of the year because he believes that the filmmakers worked hard on their projects and he doesn't want to pass off bad judgment. I respect him for that, but I wholeheartedly disagree. I think filmmakers need to be held accountable for the material they present to the world. Many of them get paid more than most of us, and we're not only entrusting them with our hard-earned money, but two, or two and a half hours of our valuable time. And if a movie robs me of either of those, I want to warn those in my circle - you guys - to stay the hell away. Now, please bear in mind that these two lists are purely subjective. I'm not trying to start a fight, although if you want to come on the show and debate me on any of these choices, I invite you to bring your A-game and I'll spar with you, but we have to agree to end it amicably, even if we can't agree on the film. Deal? So that brings me to number 10 on my top worst movies of 2022.  But before I start, know that what I did was simply make a list of the 25 movies that were released this year and I ranked them from best to worst. Then I meticulously drew a line separating the ones I'd watch again, and the ones I really don't care to. With that in mind, the first four I'm about to mention, I'd be willing to give them another chance if the mood presented itself, but overall, I was disappointed after my first viewing. So the the number 10 worst movie of 2022 is The Batman. Like a few other movies on my list, I really struggled with this one, because there's the whole movie that I actually enjoyed quite a bit, but then the ending just really ruined it for me. Spoilers if you haven't seen it, but I just feel like Batman just turned into this Disney character at the end where he was grappling with dumb morality issues that he should have figured out when he was twelve. I understand that in today's violent and angry culture it's good to see a superhero lay down his arms and focus on defending the weak instead of fighting the baddies - hell, that's what I teach my kids. But I go to the movies to watch the baddies get beat up and their heads blown off. As a moviegoer that brings me joy and it's fun to watch. Because I'm mature enough to know that it's fake, and in any real life situation, we need to avoid violence at all costs. I loved Collin Ferrell as The Penguin, I thought Robert Pattinson was a more than passable Batman, but a little weird and spooky to be Bruce Wayne. Jeffrey Wright was an impressive Lt. Gordon. Paul Dano nailed it as The Riddler. And I was even impressed with Andy Serkis's take on Alfred. However, no casting lineup can possibly outdo Christopher Nolan's Batman characters -- particularly Michael Caine's Alfred, which will never ever be matched. Like I said, I'd be more than willing to give this movie another try, especially since I'll be able to brace myself for the ending, and perhaps ease into it with a little more acceptance. Number 9 is Elvis. This was a fun movie, filmed in a very loud and obnoxious way. I'm not familiar with any of Bad Luhrmann's work outside of this one, but I just didn't feel like the style necessarily fit the story being told. That's just my opinion, and I'm willing to say I'm wrong about that. Can you tell it takes me a while to adjust to anything new? I thought Austin Butler was astounding as Elvis. I of course loved the music, and it was fun to finally have a film that gave us a peak into his life. It was a bit jarring to see Tom Hanks be in the antagonist role, but at least he wasn't just being Tom Hanks again. I feel like from 2019 and to now we're stuck on the Polar Express where it's just Tom Hanks everywhere we look. Number 8 out of the gate is Scream 2022. Not really called that, but if you're going to give your movie the same title as its originator, then I'm going to attach the release year to it. On any other day, I would actually put this as number 10, or at least the bottom of my Best Of list. My problem with this horror flick is quite obvious - it just didn't come close to capturing the magic of the 1996 original. That '96 film is so special and funny and original, that of course none of its sequels ever had a chance. But I want to be clear, this is easily the best of the Scream sequels, and the more I talk about it, the more I want to rewatch it, because honestly, I watched it so long ago that I don't remember a thing about it. I do remember that Courtney Cox's facelift made me keep mistaking her for Ghostface. A word to anyone who's aging: Don't get plastic on your face. It makes you look like a secondhand Barbie doll trying to come to life. Number 7. This one's bound to give some people hot flashes, and the controversy is welcome. But Thor: Love and Thunder underwhelmed the absolute shit out of me. Thor: Ragnarok and the Infinity War movies set the precedent for Thor going forward. But the entire movie just wasn't funny. And it's not like I went into it with crossed arms, making the movie prove itself to me. My arms were wide open and I was welcome to whatever good humor was to deliver me, but it failed miserably. Not only was it not funny, but I felt like there was not much of consequence for most of the film, like I had to slug through the first 3/4 to get to the meat of the movie. And I'll be honest, I enjoyed the ending. I'm anxious to see Thor interact as a bumbling father in the next film. I was impressed that (spoiler) Marvel had the balls to kill Jane Foster, and it looks like it's a permanent death. And Christian Bale - do I even need to echo literally every other person who saw the movie? - he crushed it so hard as an incredible foe who's nearly as great as Thanos. It was a shame that he died, because I'd love to see him again, or maybe we'll get a prequel or a Marvel miniseries? But yeah, this one hurt me deeply because I was so looking forward to it. My only hope is that Guardians of the Galaxy 3 doesn't pull this same bait and switch nonsenses. Now we're getting to the portion of the list where I just don't ever want to revisit the following movies because of how trashy and dull they were. Number 6 is Disney's Pinocchio 2022. There I go again adding the year of release. This weirdo film is not to be mistaken by the 1940's Pinocchio, one of the greatest technical and cinematic achievements in the history of film. Can you tell I have quite a love for that movie? Pinocchio 2022 basically copied the original shot-by-shot, Lion King style, but not nearly as pretty, and it made changes that weakened the story altogether. For instance, in this version, Pinocchio actually goes to school, but he then gets kicked out because he's different. What kind of message does that send kids? That if you get made fun of, you're allowed to just go off and get into trouble? Or what's with Pinocchio having to lie again to get out of the trouble he caused himself by lying? The whole point of the scene where he's in the birdcage is for him to ask and receive forgiveness by the Blue Fairy. It's character growth, because it shows that he's starting to feel remorse for his wrongdoings. And don't get me started on the whole subplot they shoehorned in with the girl and her puppet. Every time that happened I went half asleep. And it's funny too, that this CGI Pinocchio had only a quarter of the personality and charm the original Pinocchio had. Now I will say that the voice of Pinocchio was really impressive, and Joseph Gordon Levitt absolutely crushed it as Jimney. And I did really like the Easter eggs with the wooden clocks. Tom Hanks was fine, I guess, but I would have preferred to see a newer actor in that role. Like, Geesh, Tom, there are other actors hungrier that you - give them a chance. Number 5 is the Ethan Hawk movie Black Phone. I went into this like I do for almost every other movie I watch, which is completely blind. I refuse to watch trailers if I can help it. But if it's just a teaser or It's far enough out that I'll forget, then those are the only times I'll treat myself. But I went into this stone-cold blind. And honestly, it was very forgettable. It was a run-of-the mill indie horror film that really didn't shock or awe me in any way. I only watched it two or three months ago and I can only tell you it's about a boy who gets kidnapped and he's being held captive in a guy's basement. I remember snippets of the end, but that's it. So that's the problem with doing these best and worst of podcasts I guess: Maybe I need to start taking notes on every new movie I watch so I can remember what the hell I watched several months ago. I have such a bad memory as is, so it might be worth doing. The Bob's Burgers Movie is number 4. This one is kind of a cheat, because it was late at night and my wife was asleep, so I had to keep the volume down super low, and I didn't have my glasses at the time because they were broken, so I couldn't see the subtitle very well. I went into this movie never having seen an episode of Bob's Burgers, but I figured it was like the Simpsons. The jokes that I did see or hear were pretty funny, the song was catchy, but when it got into the whole murder mystery aspect, I really didn't care about it. So I'm just being honest when I say that I actually fell asleep before the movie ended, probably because my eyes were so tired from straining, but I also didn't care enough to go back and rewatch what I'd missed. That's a really bad sign, so it went pretty low on my list. The Simpson's Movie, though, that's a different conversation that I'd love to have with a guest one day. My high school and college self would never believe it that there would be a day when a Pixar movie would be amongst the worst movies I've seen. Now, I do have some explaining to do, so bear with me. Turning Red is number 3 on my list. First, let me just clarify that I know I'm not the target audience for this coming-of-age movie. I get it. But the problem is, Pixar never needed a target audience in the past. They had the ability to reach every single person whatever the story was. So that's one major strike agains this weird film. Also, I'm not one of those people who say this was an inappropriate movie for my kids. Sure, it was a little early for them to watch, seeing as it dealt mostly with puberty and periods, but I think it stayed well within the bounds of acceptability, and for that I give it credit. I think the idea for the story is actually pretty great. But it just felt so rushed, like the movie was trying to get to the big explosive climax as quickly as possible. I don't know, maybe it's just me and my inability to connect with moms and grandmas and daughters all fighting it out dressed as giant red pandas. So for me this film is firmly toward the bottom of my list, but I get it if it's higher on your list. All I'm saying is, and I don't know if I influenced them or not, that my kids even though it was a weird movie. Pixar is better than this. They should know better. But I will say, I forget when he did or said (there's my bad memory again), but the dad totally stole the movie for me. Two left. Number 9 is Uncharted. This movie was boooooring. It was predictable in the absolute worst way. It was unfunny, even though I really like Mark Wahlberg - I just had the sense that he didn't want to be there. Tom Holland was still Spider-Man in every way. Did I mention this was the most predictable movie I've ever seen? The screenwriters weren't even trying to shock us, and I say shame on them. If you can't give us something new, then don't write. I will say, the flying ships as the end was pretty cool, so I would recommend you YouTube that, but skip the rest of this trash pile movie. And that leaves us with number 10, the absolute worst movie of 2022. But first a word from my sponsor. It pains me so deeply to say this, but Jurassic Park: Dominion sucked, sucked, sucked so bad. One of the guys I was with was ready to walk out 15 minutes in. This movie did EVERYthing wrong. Absolutely everything. So much, that I don't even know where to begin. But first, how did we get from the majesty and glory of 1993 Jurassic Park to this toilet water? I mean, how is it possible that these two films are even related? In my mind, they're not. Not even close. It's like comparing Goodfellas to Clifford the Big Red Dog. What's so bothersome about Jurassic World: Dominion is that it had the blueprint laid down for it. It's like one of those situations where I get to yell, "You had ONE job!" Except, I never get to yell that, my wife does. But they couldn't even pull off a movie about dinosaurs chasing people and eating them. No, they had to do this weird mosquito subplot, with chicken dinosaurs (okay, the chicken dinosaur was the one cool thing in this movie, but it was so freaking brief), and some stupid thing about a little-girl clone. Did ANYbody ask for this movie? Actually, yes. Everyone wanted what Universal had been advertising for over a year. Remember that short film called Battle at Big Rock? Check that shit out! That 10-minute film was better than Fallen Kingdom and Dominon put together. It gave us what we were promised and what everyone on literally planet earth wanted. Did I put "literally" in the wrong place there? That's how flustered I am. Guys, I have a whole podcast on just how much of a shit-show this movie was. Check it out: It's episode 14. But all we wanted was a movie about the dangerous world of dinosaurs and humans cohabitating, but instead we got some idiot-ass movie about an underworld where they needed something, that I can't even remember. And as far as I can tell, not one single animatronic. What made them think 100% CGI was the way to go? I'll relent, I think the raptor heads were robots, but that's about it. I mean, they had the original cast handed to them on a golden plate with a sign that said: "You're welcome, have fun!" But even they were delegated to the most asinine and pointless storyline. They had Laura Dern say, "You can slip into my DM's." Was this movie written by a bunch of brain-dead millennials? I don't say this often, but every writer and unit director and producer needs to be fired or banned from Hollywood for five years. But that won't happen because people out there liked it and kept going back to see it to give this nipple-circus money. So! How's that for ending on a positive note? Sorry folks, I can't do it today. I've had a terrible week and I've been forced to revisit Jurassic Park: Dominion in the dark recesses of my mind. But the silver lining is that the next episode will be all about the best movies of 2022, so it'll end on a real head-lifter, and no, Top Gun: Maverick is NOT the number one movie on that list, surprisingly, though it was close. I'm talking, splitting Tom Cruise's beautiful hair. Yes, I have a huge man crush on Mr. Curise and also on the A-lister who's in my number one movie. If you have a movie you want me to review, old or new, email me at author.andrewtoy@gmail.com. I'd be super honored if you'd leave a review and rate my show because I've been told that's what helps the show grow. Although as of now, 11 people have rated my show and only one has left a review. And that one was my wife, and I'm pretty sure she was responsible for at least five of those 11 reviews. To be honest, I'm a bit butt-hurt by that. I see the downloads, the downloads are kicking in like crazy, so I know people are out there listening. I just can't believe that everyone out there is Switzerland and have no opinion. Write in, let me know what you think. Oh, and I'm going to leave you with a question I want you to answer for me. Call or text; I might play your answer on the next episode. The question is, what are the top 3 worst movies you saw last year? And they don't even have to be made in 2022. It could be something from 2002 you picked up from the library, you've been told for the last 20 years that it's the greatest movie ever and when you watched it, you began to question society as a whole. Text your answer to 863-303-6268 and leave your name and where you live. Remember, for every bad movie out there, there's half of a good movie somewhere else.

The stretch between Thanksgiving and Christmas is a special one in our house, as we make it a priority to slow things down and focus on time with our family. Aside from all the gifts to be bought, the stockings to be hung, and the lights to be wrestled with, we make it a point to sit and enjoy our favorite holiday films. This list has been truncated over the years as not everything made for the holidays requires a yearly re-visit (see the Hallmark Channel), but the ones that have stuck around deserve their place. Is our list for everyone? Probably not. Do we care? Definitely not. We just figured everyone else has words on the matter, so why not us? If it helps, we're consistently on the big man's nice list, so our choices are not to be taken lightly. Either way, time to light that fireplace, spike the eggnog, and embrace our own holiday classics. Shop Around the Corner (1940) RJ: Looking back, I cannot believe the amount of convincing my wife needed to do before I would watch this film. My hesitancy was based in the fact the film was in black and white, and also a romantic comedy. Thankfully, I found my spot on the couch and enjoyed the undeniable likeability of Jimmy Stewart, and his chemistry with co-star Margaret Sullivan. Even the story was deeper than two people looking for love, but rather a complex look at the interpersonal relationships of co-workers. This is a great film to watch with the fireplace on, a bottle of wine, and the person you love next to you. Ashley: I find something so comforting about Jimmy Stewart's voice, so it's no wonder this is the first of two Jimmy entries on this list. Listen in to find out why I think you'll love this one as much as I do. Arthur Christmas (2011) RJ: This film was a wonderful surprise, as the first time we watched it was simply because we had watched everything else in our holiday rotation. I was absolutely floored by the animation style and the stellar voice-cast. The story is absolutely charming as well, plenty to keep parents and children alike entertained. The ending alone is enough bring out the kid in all of us. Ashley: I love Arthur Christmas. From the voice cast to the heartwarming script, this holiday film about Santa's second son is a must-watch every Christmas. The Holiday (2006) RJ: My mother and I went to see this in late December 2006. I was home from college and she was my usual movie date as my dad typically picked films as the ideal place for a nap. Now, neither of us are fans of Cameron Diaz, nothing personal, perhaps it's genetic, but it didn't change are outlook on how much we enjoyed this film. Years later, and it's now one I can share with my wife. My love for it really lies with the pairing of Kate Winslet and Jack Black, but I think Jude Law does a promising job of balancing out my outlook on Diaz. Another one to sit down, laugh, and split a bottle a wine with the one you love. Ashley: This film was a grower for me. I don't remember loving it in 2006 or feeling compelled to watch it yearly in the early 2010's. Now, this film occupies a nostalgic piece of my heart. Either that, or I'm vicariously living through Cameron Diaz as she spends her winter holiday snowed in at a cozy English cottage. There's so much to love about this low-stakes Christmas romantic comedy, earning it a coveted spot on my yearly re-watch list. Muppet Christmas Carol (1992) RJ: There are so many reasons I love this film, and I will overlook the biggest one, as it was the one playing the same day our son was born, but let me give you the other two. First, Michael Caine is a phenomenal scrooge, who plays the whole thing as a serious actor, even when he's speaking to someone who can only say “Meep Meep Meep.” That is the true tale of talent. Secondly, Steve Whitmere is my Kermit and his role of Rizzo the rat is irreplaceable. I accept no substitute. This is the definitive version of The Christmas Carol. Ashley: I'll echo RJ's earlier statements; this is the best version of The Christmas Carol. From the music to the casting of Sir Michael Caine, everything about this movie makes it feel like Christmas to me. Also, this has one of the few cinematic outings of my favorite Muppet, Bean Bunny. It's A Wonderful Life (1946) RJ: Jimmy Stewart and Donna Reed. I am lucky to have a wife like Mary Bailey because everyone needs someone who is there to love and support you through everything life has to throw at you. George should have realized from the beginning, that the best thing to ever happen to him was finding her, but then that would be a much shorter film. Either way, this is the definitive film to watch to get into the holiday spirit.   Ashley: It's a Wonderful Life is not just my favorite Christmas movie, it's one of my favorite films ever made. I've watched this Frank Capra classic every year for as long as I can remember. It just feels entwined with the holidays for me and with the person I've become.

A year ago, I used every bit of access and influence to get tickets to Cabaret for one reason only - to see Eddie Redmayne the star of the show. And last week, conquering my enormous fear of being afraid, I watched him in the Good Nurse and was unnerved how beautifully he made a mass murderer not only empathetic, but almost loveable. All of us in The River Café know Eddie as an enthusiastic eater. On this episode we discuss his life through food but not before we put him to work in the kitchen, fulfilling his life's dream and making pizzas with our chef, Jessica Filbey. For more than 30 years The River Cafe in London, has been the home-from-home of artists, architects, designers, actors, collectors, writers, activists, and politicians. Michael Caine, Glenn Close, JJ Abrams, Steve McQueen, Victoria and David Beckham, and Lily Allen, are just some of the people who love to call The River Cafe home. On Ruthie's Table 4, Rogers sits down with her customers—who have become friends—to talk about food memories. Table 4 explores how food impacts every aspect of our lives. “Foods is politics, food is cultural, food is how you express love, food is about your heritage, it defines who you and who you want to be,” says Rogers. Each week, Rogers invites her guest to reminisce about family suppers and first dates, what they cook, how they eat when performing, the restaurants they choose, and what food they seek when they need comfort. And to punctuate each episode of Table 4, guests such as Ralph Fiennes, Emily Blunt and Alfonso Cuarón, read their favourite recipe from one of the best-selling River Cafe cookbooks.  Table 4 itself, is situated near The River Cafe's open kitchen, close to the bright pink wood-fired oven and next to the glossy yellow pass, where Ruthie oversees the restaurant. You are invited to take a seat at this intimate table and join the conversation.

Two years after starting the River Café, Rose Gray and I were asked by a publisher to do a cookbook. We replied sternly that we were chefs, not writers. But the more we thought about it, we realized that being a chef is about communicating. 30 years and 12 cookbooks later, we have just published our newest The River Café Lookbook for Kids of All Ages.It's a collaboration between a photographer, designers and chefs. When you hold any book in your hands, there's a story to be told about how it was created. And that's what we're going to do on today's special episode of Ruthie's Table 4.  For more than 30 years The River Cafe in London, has been the home-from-home of artists, architects, designers, actors, collectors, writers, activists, and politicians. Michael Caine, Glenn Close, JJ Abrams, Steve McQueen, Victoria and David Beckham, and Lily Allen, are just some of the people who love to call The River Cafe home. On Ruthie's Table 4, Rogers sits down with her customers—who have become friends—to talk about food memories. Table 4 explores how food impacts every aspect of our lives. “Foods is politics, food is cultural, food is how you express love, food is about your heritage, it defines who you and who you want to be,” says Rogers. Each week, Rogers invites her guest to reminisce about family suppers and first dates, what they cook, how they eat when performing, the restaurants they choose, and what food they seek when they need comfort. And to punctuate each episode of Table 4, guests such as Ralph Fiennes, Emily Blunt and Alfonso Cuarón, read their favourite recipe from one of the best-selling River Cafe cookbooks.  Table 4 itself, is situated near The River Cafe's open kitchen, close to the bright pink wood-fired oven and next to the glossy yellow pass, where Ruthie oversees the restaurant. You are invited to take a seat at this intimate table and join the conversation.

There's (a little more than) One More Sleep 'Til Christmas, and with a Thankful Heart, it's time for Verbal Diorama to give some festive love to The Muppet Christmas Carol, so It Feels Like Christmas, finally!Starring Kermit, Miss Piggy, Statler and Waldorf, The Great Gonzo as Charles Dickens, Rizzo the Rat as himself, and the inimitable Michael Caine in his career-defining role as Ebenezer Scrooge, The Muppet Christmas Carol is not only one of the greatest adaptations of Dickens' A Christmas Carol, but also one of the greatest Christmas movies ever made, and this year it celebrates its 30th anniversary with a remastered version on Disney+, complete with the "lost" song "When Love is Gone".But out of over 150 adaptations of A Christmas Carol over the decades, how is the Muppet version so faithful to the source material, and why does it continue to endure? It's a story of loss, grief and redemption, and that's just the behind-the-scenes of this movie.The YouTube video by dress historian Abby Cox I refer to in this episode is hereI would love to hear your thoughts on The Muppet Christmas Carol !GET IN TOUCH....

The Muppets perform the classic Dickens holiday tale, with Kermit the Frog playing Bob Cratchit, the put-upon clerk of stingy Ebenezer Scrooge (Michael Caine). Other Muppets -- Miss Piggy, Gonzo, Fozzie Bear and Sam the Eagle -- weave in and out of the story, while Scrooge receives visits from spirits of three Christmases -- past, present and future. They show him the error of his self-serving ways, but the miserable old man seems to be past any hope of redemption and happiness.   Can we ask for a more perfect match for our #Puppetry genre AND to have this episode debut in December? I think not!  Nathan brings all of us a fan favorite and a holiday staple for everyone with The Muppet Christmas Carol!  We laugh at the quotable lines, Michael Caines stellar performance and of course the timeless songs.  So join us wont you?  Put more coal on the fire, make sure the prized turkey is roasted and get yourself one more sleep till Christmas!    We are the Reel Feels Podcast, every other Wednesday we'll bring you a new movie with all the feels you can handle.  We'll laugh, we'll cry and possibly restrain the frustrations to curse the heavens.
