Obvious written to be shown around the Christmas holiday time this was an amusing episode.
The lightweight plots about Kris Kringle's demise and the attempts by Temperance to arrange a Christmas get-together in jail for her father and brother weren't particularly demanding, but they did provide that warm feeling for the holiday season.
Notwithstanding that the discovery of a dead Father Christmas isn't a federal matter and wouldn't in reality have involved the FBI the episode floated along in a jolly fashion.
In the episode was really about the writers getting Brennan and Seeley to kiss. That in itself would guarantee that reviews by all the non-critical fans would give it a rating of 10 out of 10 (more if they could!).
Hopefully the next episode will have some more substance. Ah well we can but hope!
