The TV Blog Coalition - Happy Holidays! Now Pass Me The Hot Chocolate!

Happy Holidays! Happy Hanukkah! Merry Christmas! Happy Kwanzaa, Christmukah (whatever happened to that?) or whatever you celebrate!

Either way, the snow is apparently snowing down hard at home in Toronto and in many other parts of North America (Las Vegas? For real?) but I'm still in Washington D.C. for a couple more days (where I had brunch with The TV Blog Coalition's fearless leader Dan from TiFaux!), but it's still cold and windy and the perfect time for hot chocolate in front of the fireplace big screen TV to catch up on some holiday movies (my faves? The Sound of Music, Love, Actually and Elf).

In the meantime, I promise I'll blog about TV again at some point, although I'll be doing some catchup reviews on more theatre I've seen in the past few months (still to come: The Sound of Music, Dirty Dancing, 9 to 5, Les Mis at the Signature, Next to Normal, West Side Story, Pal Joey and In the Heights re-review).

Anyways, here's what the other TV bloggers were talking about this past week:

Buzz reflected on the year Grey's Anatomy went totally crazy. (BuzzSugar)

This week Team GMMR shared our TV on DVD wish list. What's TV series are on your list? Here's to hoping Santa likes TV as much as the rest of us. (Give Me My Remote)

Every day from now until the end of the year Scooter is unveiling a new Best of 2008 list. And in spirit of the holidays, Scooter is giving away a couple of of iTunes or Amazon gift cards to mark the occasion. (Scooter McGavin's 9th Green)

Which EW 2008 Pop Culture moment photo, recreated by the gang at How I Met Your Mother, do you love best? Vance wants you to vote on it! Vance thinks it's a toss up between the Michael Phelps Olympics one and The Jonas Brothers one. Either way, Neil Patrick Harris is hot. (Tapeworthy)

This week, Jace once again took a look into the future, offering advance reviews of Season Three of HBO's Big Love and the Skins season finale on BBC America. (Televisionary)

Amy Poehler's send-off on Saturday Night Live was bittersweet -- Jesse was sad to see her go, but glad that she left on what could be the best episode of the season thus far! (TiFaux)

Heather and Ben warmed up for the final run of Battlestar Galactica and got quite excited about the new webisodes (TV Spy)

This week, the TV Addict poked fun at NBC's latest attempt to cut costs. (The TV Addict)

Yeah, I don't think Chrismukkah caught on. But what about Festivus?!

Love, Actually is one of my favorites, too. I also like About a Boy, although it's not a Christmas movie. But it does have Hugh Grant!
