Happy Boxing Day, gang! This week we’re pulling triple duty by celebrating Christmas, Boxing Day AND July At Christmas all in one episode! It’s 1985’s Rocky IV, in which the Italian Stallion goes up against the Soviet punching machine Ivan Drago. It’s a jingoistic farce that drenches itself in Cold War hysteria, and it also happens to take place at Christmas, so guess what? We say it counts.
Happy Holidays, everyone! We’ll see you in 2018!
