Top 5 Holiday TV Episodes

December 15, 2014

Album related?  Not even remotely!

But ’tis the season for Christmas specials and I thought I’d join the fun.

By calling it ‘holiday’ – that leaves the door wide open for Frank Costanza to make an appearance!


5. Community, “Abed’s Uncontrollable Christmas” Season 2 Episode 11
There are funnier community episodes (see #1!) but few TV shows have ever been as creative.  Season 1’s Christmas episode is equally deserving but bonus marks had to be given to this entirely stop-motion adventure.


4. The Office, “A Benihana Christmas” Season 3 Episode 10/11
A toss up between this one or the Christmas episode from season 2.  In another difficult tie-breaker, the advantage goes to the episode where Dwight graphically advises strangers how to prepare a goose!


3. Arrested Development, “Afternoon Delight” Season 2 Episode 6
Only #3, Come on!


2. Seinfeld, “The Strike” Season 9 Episode 10
There just couldn’t be a list without a Festivus for the Rest of Us!


1. Community, “Regional Holiday Music” Season 3 Episode 10
If you like Glee, you may enjoy this episode.  If you loathe Glee, you’ll love this.  Enjoy!

  1. Festivus slays me everytime!

  2. We don’t watch a lot of TV shows so I’ll add my own: Big Bang, when Penny gives Sheldon “Leonard Nimoy’s DNA”.

    • Haven’t seen that one – haven’t seen it yet that is, I’ll check it out. I tend to really like the ones that focus on the Penny/Sheldon dynamic!

      • Oooh you need to. I think it might be the best episode of the series!

        I’m also fond of Kiss Saves Santa as seen in Family Guy.

      • I seem to remember Kiss playing the electric guitar to scare a pterodactyl, now that’s some holiday magic!

      • That’s the one!!!

  3. Festivus is brilliant. It gets my vote. There are also many great Simpsons’ Chirstmas episodes.
