The Worst Noel
AIRED:
It's Christmas time, and as Rex says, "Ho, ho, friggin' ho!" The gang creates a choir for the Christmas show, but no one has the guts to tell solo volcalist Jess that she can't sing. Rex is wrangled into playing Santa. Meanwhile, Lenora's sister comes to visit and the two click like never before -- but Loretta has an ulterior motive -- she wants to make their mother move out of the nursing home and in with Lenora. Both Rex and Lenora are bummed out by the holidays, so they find solace in each others arms. . .moreless

    only seen a hand full of this series, not the best but it was ok i guess. i like this episode, about christmas and how jess couldn't sing throughout the show and by the end it shows her singing great. i like their rendition of "hark the herald". can't really expect much from a low budget tv series, it didn't do well obviously. maybe if the story was better or it had better writers. the acting was ok, i'm going on by memory from when i first saw the episode. any way just wanted to put my say in here. i liked this episode and now you all know.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • Kim Coles made a cross-over in this episode playing Synclaire James, the character that she played on The Crew's lead-in show, "Living Single." The ending of "Living Single" had Synclaire on a plane, talking to the passenger next to her as the credits flashed. Jess comes in and scares Synclaire away. Synclaire walks through the curtain and runs into Maggie, beginning the seamless opening to "The Crew."

    • Although Rose Jackson sang badly during this episode, she was given a chance to prove that she really can sing during the closing credits as she and guest Sharon Brown sang "Hark, the Herald Angels Sing."

    • Series regular Christine Estabrook and guest-star Harriet Sansom Harris later played sisters again on "Desperate Housewives," which was created by "Crew" co-creator Marc Cherry. "The Five Mrs. Buchanans," which Sansom-Harris had previously starred on, was also from the creators of "The Crew."

  • NOTES (3)

    • A little piece of useless trivia... In 2004, Christine Estabrooke (Lenora Zwick) landed a role on "Desperate Housewives." On that show, after her character's sudden death, Harriet Sansom Harris (who played her sister in this episode) arrives, again playing Estabrooke's sister. Harris had previously starred in "The 5 Mrs. Buchanans," which was from creators Marc Cherry and Jamie Wooten -- the same creators of "The Crew." It appears that Cherry went solo with his "Desperate Housewives" creation, but he's still recruiting actors from previous projects.
