I am so sorry you watched that. I cannot imagine the horror of it, and I would be Scrooge-ish, too!


It was so bad that I tossed and turned for an hour or so afterwards. My Dickens class ends with "A Christmas Carol" next week, but this adaptation almost made me want to just give it a miss. Bleah.


When I saw the advertisements for this version of "Carol," I kept wondering if *anyone* from NBC (or wherever) had ever seen "Scrooged," the Bill Murray movie that parodies bad "Carol" adaptations (with Mary Lou Retton as Tiny Tim). The advertisements looked that bad to me. I'm sorry to hear that it was as bad as it looked.
