A Classic Retelling/True Human Value/Religious Claptrap
21 April 2017 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

I'm giving this one an eight because of "The Night of the Meek." The Art Carney version is superior, but this one still ignites the screen. A man who drinks too much works as a store Santa. When he destroys the Santa set, he is fired on Christmas Eve. Suddenly, what appears to be a large garbage bag takes on major powers. The second part is about a secretary, played by Pam Dawber (Mindy from Mark and Mindy). She is harassed by her boss and treated as a second class employee, under the gun at every turn. Then, one night as she makes copies, something happens to change her life. Finally, an utterly worthless, trite effort, not worthy of this series.
