Twitter Reactions: A Christmas Story Live
Last night’s FOX special: A Christmas Story Live brought out quite a few reactions from viewers. Some positive, some not-so-positive. I’m personally not a “live” TV performance fan (and certainly not for musicals…) but you have to give the cast, crew, and creatives some credit for giving it a shot. It definitely isn’t easy.
Have a look at some of the reactions from viewers on twitter. Do you agree / disagree?
Some TV fans were NOT impressed:
I’m gonna have to watch the entire 24hr marathon of A Christmas Story to forget this dumpster fire called #AChristmasStoryLive 👎🏼🤦🏻♂️😵

Sat through 3 hrs of #AChristmasStoryLive. Now I wished I’d shot my eye out instead. And my other eye. And both ears for good measure.

Way too long. Painful. Bailed 2 hours in. #AChristmasStoryLive

#AChristmasStoryLive Seasick from the camera movement and I want to blow my brains out with a Red Ryder BB gun.
Other than that, I hate it.

I feel like I need to shoot both my eyes out after watching this dumpster fire #AChristmasStoryLive . There aren’t enough words to describe how bad this is. I’ve never seen anything like it, and I work in a grocery store with the general public.

#AChristmasStoryLive absolutely blew my mind tonight!
The set changes, the camera work, Jane Krakowski, and all of the kids’ performances were great.
If you didn’t at least appreciate it, you’re lame.

I’ve been really critical of these Fox musicals but tbh I did not mind #AChristmasStoryLive Performances were solid, songs were decent, and you can’t go wrong with Matthew Broderick- he’s a national treasure. Maybe my icy heart is just melting with the Christmas season 🤷🏽♀️

I LOVE Matthew Broderick 💖 This #AChristmasStoryLive is fantastic! The whole cast is great! Kudos to the camera crew & Director too! Loving the behind the scenes tidbits too. Did NOT like the cheesy ad put in for the Hugh Jackman movie though, that was lame 😒

The show turned out great! The cast crew and everyone involved should be super proud of a great production 🌲🎩🌲🎩🌲 #AChristmasStoryLive

#AChristmasStoryLive blew my mind. The creativity, talent (on camera and off), level of execution, and attention to detail were all off the charts. “Major Award” was one of the best live performances I’ve ever seen on television, period.

About that line flub…
With any live performance – there will be some mistakes. Fans didn’t miss Maya’s, but were very supportive.

#AChristmasStoryLive best moment was the masterful cover of Maya Rudolph’s line flub
— Joanna Rodriguez (@JROD1300) December 18, 2017
good actors take a line flub and cover so well you wonder if it was even a flub. that was beautiful work by maya and chris #AChristmasStoryLive

It wouldn’t be Christmas without Star Wars and Die Hard
I’m not sure about you.. But Die Hard Live might be worth checking out…

I can’t wait til next Christmas when Fox does ‘Die Hard Live! The Musical’ featuring such showstoppers as ‘Shoot The Glass’ & ‘Yippee-Ki-Yay, MF’. #AChristmasStoryLive
