Freaky Festive Franchises

You can't have a franchise without a threequel. Yes, following our previous two Freaky Franchises episodes, it's time for a festive edition!

For this year's Two Geeks Christmas special, we're looking back at four festive film series that have gone on far longer than we realised. Whether it's just one sequel too many or a ridiculous number of remakes and adaptations, it's time to delve into the bonkers world of Christmas movie franchises.

Here, we tackle: Jingle All the Way, The Santa Clause, Miracle on 34th Street and It's a Wonderful Life.

We also discuss:

  • Larry the Cable Guy's franchise killing exploits
  • The Santa death rules of The Santa Clause
  • Would we give money to George Bailey?
  • The brilliance of Hallmark Christmas movies

And welcome and thank you to our latest Patreon subscriber: Tom Atkins!

About the Podcast

Two Geeks Two Beers
Nerdy obsessions. Drunken ramblings. A nostalgia podcast about TV, film and video games.
Tom and Morgan are two mates who love talking nonsense about pop culture, while also enjoying a beer. We've taken our drunken ramblings from the pub to the studio to teach each other about all kinds of films, TV shows, video games and more. From '80s cartoons to '90s kids shows, action film franchises to cult games, we'll chat about anything remotely geek-related, often with plenty of confusion, bickering and fond nostalgia.
