Sokolsky on the Arts and Entertainment
A weekly program focusing on the arts and entertainment
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.
Arts and Entertainment Editor Bob Sokolsky says there is little doubt about that. All we have to do is look at some of the upcoming TV schedules.
Especially when they start presenting shows like "Moonlight and Mistletoe," an upcoming feature on the Hallmark Channel. You may think it's a repeat of an old program. But Sokolsky says it isn't; it just seems that way.
The film tells a time-honored tale of a small town holiday operation about to go out of business because a new generation of folks no longer respects the good old ways to celebrate Christmas.
However, Sokolsky calls the work better than the sum of its parts and offers some applause for Tom Arnold and his supporting cast. Besides, he adds, this type of show has little need for subtlety and substance. So it's best to just settle down and go along with its suggestion to "deck the halls and simply enjoy what is going on around us."
