Santa's Slay (with Guest Host Big Al Haston!) (SSS 43)

With Jeff Wright out on assignment, Derik Zoo asked friend of the show Big Al to fill in. Al, being the Christmas lover he is, suggested 2005's "Santa's Slay" and...well, you'll just have to listen for yourself to see if it put Derik in the Christmas Spirit. 

In addition to the review of the movie, Derik and Al talk about the new Batman gossip, and the impending sale of Fox to Disney!
