Still Watching the Skies: 2022 Christmas Bonus Episode “Secret Santa VIII”

Robert, Nat, and Cody are joined by returning guests Angela Fabbrini of Where the Long Tail Ends and Jim Laczkowski of Voices & Visions as we throw our seventh annual Secret Santa party. Who gave what to whom is the mystery of the episode as we take turns discussing five movies especially chosen for their recipients by their secret Santas.

This episode is apparently sponsored by TUBI as several films can be found there. The films this year include THERE’S ALWAYS TOMORROW (1956), THE GREEN RAY (1985), VAMPIRE’S KISS (1989), DEF BY TEMPTATION (1990), and BIRDMAN OR (THE UNEXPECTED VIRTUE OF IGNORANCE) (2014).

Plenty of fun is had. Some subtle insinuations, and perhaps wild accusations, about who we think were our Secret Santas are dropped. Play along and see if you can guess right.

Time Tracks:
THERE’S ALWAYS TOMORROW (1956): 0:00 to 33:04
THE GREEN RAY (1985): 33:04 to 1:13:52
VAMPIRE’S KISS (1989): 1:13:52 to 1:38:30
DEF BY TEMPTATION (1990): 1:38:30 to 2:06:12

We hope you enjoy this celebration of film. Give us a play or Download the episode. Also, feel free to let us know what you think by commenting below or Email Us at as we appreciate feedback.
