Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • This episode was co-written by Star-Burns!!!!

    It wasn't until the second time watching this episode that I noticed Dino Stamatopoulos co-wrote this one. I find little tidbits like this fascinating. This show as a whole, for me, is something more though. Not just an extremely funny show, but FULL to the brim with heart, and this episode had A LOT of that! I like how the journey was through Abed's mind via his pov... The realization of what was making Abed act so strangely was sad, but his friends gathered around him and helped him through it.

    The stop motion was great, even though a couple of them were kinda scary: Britta and Jeff.

    I loved that Chang was the snowman. He cracks me up no matter what he is, says, does... etc.

    All in all this episode was fantastic in all it's entirety.moreless
  • i started crying :'(

    I feel bad for Abed and since i don't really cry a lot, crying when Abed found out his mom wasn't coming was sad. Besides that it was a good episode overall, i'm gonna watch it again next christmas! =]
  • The Meaning of Christmas

    I didn't see this episode the first time it aired, and that's something I truly regret, because I've missed an entire year of watching it over and over. Now, this wasn't the funniest episode of Community, but it is in the top ten, but it is one of the most creative and enjoyable episodes. It had humor, suspense, and heart. It was very well written, well put together, and amazingly animated.

    I feel that even if Community gets cancelled this year, which I really, really hope it doesn't., they should still air it every year, because this is an amazing special.moreless
  • Superb Christmas special!

    I loved the craft and detail that went into each scene as well as the overall story. Pierce was hilarious as always along with Jeff, Annie, Troy, Abed, Shirley, Britta, Chang and the rest of the cast. I had to watch it twice just to make sure I didn't miss all the witty details. I could only give it a 9.5 rating due to the fact it was animated and therefore was unable to see Alison's really cute doe eyes this week. Man! she really is cute. Other than that it was superb! I really appreciated the extra mile they went this season and hope the show continues for many more.moreless
  • Abed searches for the meaning of Christmas whilst everyone is in cartoon form.

    Personally, I didn't like this episode. I liked the idea of it but not so much the execution. It's sort of annoying and very out of context with the rest of the series. It was just... kind of lame. I love Christmas and yes, I love learning life lessons from cartoons but at the same time I love this show and this episode didn't have anything in common with the rest of the series. They shared characters but honestly, nothing like the other episodes.

    At least it had some token songs which really make Christmas Movies what they are. And the way they all beat up the Christmas Wizard was great.moreless
