This third annual special where critics Gene Siskel and Roger Ebert look at gifts for a film buff is yet another very entertaining episode. They start off taking a look at video games and it's funny to hear Ebert's story about playing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and especially when you consider some of the blog posts that he made decades later. We also get into some video recommendations where the critics talk about overlooked movies that would make nice gift ideas. There's also a more detailed look at Laserdiscs and why they were going to change the way home video worked. Also, the two critics talk about a craze in Japan that is coming to America and that's the karaoke bar. All of this in 1989. Overall this is another very fun episode and it's interesting to watch this and others like it today just because it's a great reminder of where technology was at the time. It's even more amazing to see where we're at now and you've got to wonder what the critics would have thought about all this new technology.
