It’s the last episode of The Unloading for 2012 and the crew is even more skeleton than last week. Pete and Jim hold down the fort and Mollie is not around to reign in their deep discussion of holiday TV shows, fantasy football and 48 vs 24 frame per second film making. Jim gives his review of The Hobbit and Pete recaps his busy, festive weekend around Chicago. All that and more on episode 26 of The Unloading.

It’s another skeleton crew for The Unloading episode 25 as Stephanie recovers in the hospital and Mary prepares for Jingle Bash. Luckily Mollie was nice enough to once again stop by and keep Jim and Pete in check, preventing the show from becoming a 90 minute discussion about which sitcom had the best Christmas episode ever. Pete and Mollie recapped their holiday open house and Jim dropped a major bombshell about Dave Coulier. All that and more on The Unloading episode 25.
