Recurrent Events is taking another week off from TRN Podcast for a very special Christmas-themed show you won’t want to miss, but that doesn’t mean we’ll be keeping all the retro pop culture news to ourselves! So much to talk about this week including a Griswolds TV show, (What??? I guess Johnny Galecki didn’t listen to our Christmas Vacation Drive-In podcast), Die Hard gets a board game in time for Christmas, and Eggo Waffle cereal returns.
Here are Recurrent events for the week of Dec 8-14, 2019.
- ‘The Griswolds’ Comedy Based On National Lampoon’s ‘Vacation’ Films In Works At HBO Max With Johnny Galecki Producing – While I didn’t think a TV series could work for an individual movie, following the Griswolds daily life might cut it.
