HO HO HO! It's that time of year again to celebrate the day that Alonso loves. It's the 'Who Shot Ya?' Christmas Extravaganza! And this episode is packed to the gills. It starts off with a white elephant gift exchange. It then moves right into an in depth conversation about the somewhat controversial Christmas classic Love Actually. The crew then chats with Dan Thompson of the 'Deck The Hallmark' podcast about all those wonderful Hallmark Christmas movies. They have their final El Mero Mero De Navidad Christmas Minute. And as always, they've got Staff Picks. If this episode doesn't put you in the Christmas spirit, nothing will!

Ricky - Black Christmas
Alonso - The Annotated Christmas Carol: A Christmas Carol in Prose
April - A Diva's Christmas Carol

This is a spicy episode! To say that there was a difference of opinion about this week's film would be an understatement. We're talking about the new Natalie Portman, popstar in crisis movie Vox Lux. The crew is joined by TV writer Jenny Jaffe ('Big Hero 6: The Series'). They answer a question from the mailbag: "What director - whose first high profile pictures were stellar - were you most surprised/disappointed to see flame out?" The Christmas season wouldn't be complete without another edition of the El Mero Mero De Navidad Christmas Minute with Alonso Duralde. And, as always, staff picks.

In news, Kevin Hart steps down as Oscars host, and Sister Act 3 moves on with no Whoopi Goldberg.

Ricky - Living on Soul
Alonso - Josie and the Pussycats
April - Cold War
