Hi there! This week we discuss 'Vikings' which will debut its final episodes exclusively on Prime Video on December 30th before it airs on History, but it doesn't like Canada is included. So, when will we get to see the Canadian-co-produced show?? Also, Jeff has a review of animated Netflix series 'Big Mouth', which he adores. I watched the first season of the HBO Max series 'Raised by Wolves' (watched it on Crave) and it's NUTS. Jeff also says goodbye to Fargo and has details on some big changes for 'The Godfather III', and I finally watched 'A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood'. - Brett

Hi there!

The Lego Star Wars Holiday Special debuted on Disney Plus this week and it is AMAZING. Wonder Woman 1984 finally has a release date, and it's not the best news for Canada.

Jeff started watching the award-winning comedy The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, and he has a bone to pick with the logistics of Four Christmases. - Brett
