I just got to #50; have I mentioned how glad I am that TV shows count? I've only watched 2 movies so far, and 48 episodes of various TV shows.

I'm just about at the halfway point now; I have another 50 or so to watch. I think 5 or 6 are movies, and the rest are TV shows and specials. At this rate though, I'll definitely run out of stuff to watch long before Christmas.

By the way, I watched Edward Scissorhands tonight. I couldn't decide if it qualified, so I left it off my list. But if it counts, I'll be happy to add it.

Great job with hitting 50 all ready, there is still 22 days left...

Edward Scissorhands, I can't remember when that takes place. I think there's a scene where
Spoiler:
Vincent Price dies
and that takes place during Christmas, but I think that's the only scene, so it wouldn't count.

P.S. I'm back baby!

Actually, I don't think that particular scene you mentioned takes place during Christmas, but there are other scenes in the movie that do. When
Spoiler:
the neighbors start to turn on Edward, and no one shows up for Peg and her family's Christmas party
It's no biggie though, I won't count it.

P.S. Welcome back!

I only have three movies left (Batman Returns, Christmas Evil and The Ref) and about 15-20 TV show episodes. That should put me at just over 100.

I thought of this too, but it won't count since it's only the end of the film. No one knows how long Rocky was training before the fight. So it's not going to count.

On another note, everyone is doing great. I see a lot of you are all ready WAY past 50, and some of you are approaching 100! I'll have to think about that and maybe next year raise it up to 75 or 100. I think I'll hit 50, but no way will I hit 100. Good job guys!

I am hoping to hit thirty, I have just been updating my previous post. Work has been very hectic so that has kept me from watching 50.
