Tis the season to be grumpy, at least according to a bunch of middle-aged British men and, for some reason, Elliott Gould.
From Arthur, who hates that Christmas happens every 365 days, to John, who hates that Margaret Thatcher didn’t hand-sign her Christmas cards, to the narrator, who hates Christmas cards and possibly his wife, we’re working through a laundry list of everything wrong with the holidays.
We’re buying last-minute presents at gas stations, holding carolers hostage, and standing up to the tyranny of Advent Calendars (and okay, we’re also standing up because the Queen is speaking).
Along the way, we’ll discuss fish for Christmas, determine whether Jaime is secretly a grumpy old man, and discover the lost Twin Peaks Christmas album.
It turns out Christmas in Britain may be a bit rubbish after all.
Featuring guest appearances by Enrico Iglesias, Santa Claus, and the reanimated corpse of Winston Churchill.
We’re suffering through and reporting back on Grumpy Old Men at Christmas UK, available to stream for free on YouTube.
