Sokolsky on the Arts and Entertainment
A weekly program focusing on the arts and entertainment
Arts an Entertainment Editor Bob Sokolsky points to the obvious. Christmas is fast approaching.
We can see that now in the type of shows TV viewer are getting, especially from the folks at Hallmark where Programmers at the Hallmark Channel have just given viewers “The Night Before the Night Before Christmas.” Now there is its CBS drama “November Christmas, ” coming up Nov 28. Sokolsky advises getting two or three boxes of tissue paper before one sits down to watch it.
The drama, he says, features an excellent cast to relate the story of a sick young girl who is unlikely to live before the start of the holiday season.
A grumpy neighbor inspires the townspeople to join in to help create this special day and a group of small town citizens move up their calendars to present the girl with an intended last but beautiful Christmas.
And yes, Sokolsky says, all this is quite overdone, but let’s face it. Isn’t this a welcome antidote to the vampires and other ghouls who have overwhelmed the prime time slots most of the season?
