5 must-see episodes on MeTV this week of December 21
This holiday week, get an early taste of 'Mama's Family,' see the Odd Couple go Dickens, and hear Lynda Carter hit the recording studio.
It's Christmas week! The MeTV schedule is decorated with dozens of delightful holiday episodes, and our final five days of A Very Merry MeTV is merely the star on top of the tree. There's a Christmas episode for just about every one of our shows, and those staying up late making toys or awaiting Santa can catch a run of them early Xmas morning.
Here are five more must-see highlights of the week.
The Odd Couple "Scrooge Gets an Oscar"
Christmas Eve at 9:30PM | 8:30 C
In a parody of 'A Christmas Carol,' Felix and the poker players become Dickens' ghosts in a dream after a miserable Oscar refuses to be Scrooge in a children's play.
The Twilight Zone "The Night of the Meek"
Christmas Eve at 2:30AM | 1:30C
Those putting cookies out for Claus should stay up to see a wonderful Art Carney as a down and out Santa who finds a magical sack of gifts and seeks his redemption.
Matlock "The Gift"
Christmas at 10AM | 9C
Long before he was "breaking bad," Bryan Cranston was a man dressed as Santa and wrongly accused of murder in this standout episode of Andy Griffith's lawyer series. Bonus: William Schallert, the dad of The Patty Duke Show, plays the judge!
Mama's Family "Santa Mama"
Christmas at 9:30PM | 8:30C
By know you hopefully know that Thelma "Mama" Harper is coming to MeTV starting January 4. Get an early sampling of Vicki Lawrence's home cookin' with this riotous Christmas episode, when Mama fills in for Vint as St. Nick at the mall.
Wonder Woman "Amazon Hot Wax"
Saturday 26 at 8PM | 7C
Lynda Carter has a solid second career as a singer, and you can witness her fuse her two skill sets together in this disco-tastic outing of the superhero show. In the wonderfully titled "Amazon Hot Wax," Wonder Woman goes undercover as a singer to root out extortionists in the record biz. Judge Reinhold and Rick Springfield pop up as pop stars. Also, Diana Prince hits a recording studio (with some producers sporting fantastic hair) and belts out a funky little number.
