Title: How To Ruin Christmas

Genre: Comedy

Where to Watch: Netflix


Why It's a Must Watch

If you're looking for a holiday comedy with a twist, look no further than How to Ruin Christmas. Now in it's third season, this South African television show is streaming on Netflix, and it's sure to bring a smile to your face during the holiday season or anytime of the year.

The show revolves around Tumi Sello, played by Busi Lurayi, and her attempts to make it through a family reunion without ruining Christmas. She's joined by an ensemble cast, including Thando Thabethe, Yonda Thomas, and more. This season, subtitled The Funeral, picks up where the first season left off, and it looks like Tumi is in for a wild ride.

The first episode sets the stage for the holiday chaos to come. We see Tumi and her family attend a braai hosted by Valencia and Vusi Twala, the wealthy parents of Tumi's sister's husband. But things get interesting when Tumi's father shows up unexpectedly, and Tumi is tasked with taking her terminally ill grandmother out for one last day of fun. This sets off a chain of events that will keep you on the edge of your seat.

What makes this show so unique is its cultural perspective. It's a fresh take on the traditional "crazy family at the holidays" story, and it's a welcome change from what we're used to seeing in the States. The show has a warm and chaotic family feel, similar to movies like Parenthood and The Family Stone. And, of course, the fact that Christmas is in the summer in South Africa adds to the humor of the show.

The chemistry between the actors is fantastic, and the families' different circumstances bring an extra layer of humor to the show. The Sellos are more down-to-earth, while the Twalas are more showy, and the interactions between the two families are a hoot. The first episode also shows Tumi bonding with her terminally ill grandmother, and it's both funny and poignant.

So, is How to Ruin Christmas: The Funeral worth a watch? Absolutely. This show is perfect for those who love holiday comedies with a twist, and it's sure to bring a smile to your face this holiday season. Whether you're watching it for the first time or catching up on the second season, How to Ruin Christmas is a must-watch for any comedy fan.
