Our favourite Christmas episodes

Our favourite Christmas episodes

Studio 60 on the sunset strip: The entire episode was all sharp Sorkin dialogue and hilarity (a Santa that looked like it was giving a nazi salute) but the crux of it was that Matt Alby wanted a show that was “christmasy.” And he delivered. A moving end that had to be heard to be believed and one character finally making a big confession that changed the course of the series. This episode is all kinds of heart-warming.

Friends: We spent a fair amount of Christmases and thankgivings with the gang, but the episode where Chandler has to spend Christmas in Tulsa was our favourite. Of all the flashbacks he goes to, our favourite is of course Phoebe singing her Christmas song with all her friends’ names in it. And Chandler came back in the end. Because he missed his wife so much he couldn’t stand it. Awww.

Modern Family: The Pritchets and the Dunphys always know how to balance funny and sweet, but they outdid themselves at the Christmas episode where they all had to arrange Christmas in a day (December 10th). The clan split up and organised food, presents and decorations, all to the kind of comedy errors that cause you to cry with laughter. The episode ended with them all frolicking in fake snow. Perfection to the end.

Community: Abed’s uncontrollable Christmas is one of those episodes that make your jaw drop at the brilliance of this show. The entire show turns into Claymation as they travel through Abed’s head to a Christmas-themed planet. They sing songs and travel through a dark zone and find the true meaning of Christmas. So so cute.

The Big Bang Theory: Putting one of the most important issues of Christmas at the forefront; Sheldon is struggling to find Penny a gift equal in value to the one she gave him. But of course he fails, when Penny makes a thoughtful gesture and gifts him an autograph of Leonard Nimoy. Anything that has Sheldon Cooper stumped is a wonderful moment by our standards.

New Girl: Although New Girl is relatively new, season one had a rollercoaster of a Christmas episode that involved Paul giving Jess and expensive gift while she plans to break up with him, Nick struggling to make it home, Schmidt being Santa for his boss and Winston forming a bond with a little kid. And when everyone has clearly had a terrible day, the gang drives down to see Christmas lights and manage to wake up an entire street and it’s absolutely beautiful.


Six faceless characters we would love to see

Six faceless characters we would love to see

Mrs. Wolowitz from The Big Bang Theory

We’ve heard so much of and about her; we assume she is an obese woman with too much body hair and some serious boundary issues. You can’t help but feel bad for the creepy Howard. But here’s what she looks like in real life.

Ms Sara Bellum from the Powerpuff Girls

We know a lot about Sara Bellum. She has shapely legs that go upto there and curves that would make Beyonce sign up for self esteem therapy. What’s more, we suspect she’s the brain behind the happy but useless mayor, how could she not be with that smart pun in her name. We have never seen her face. The only time we come close is when she attends the carnival, but…oh, what’s that…a bunch of balloons have covered her face.

Wilson from Home Improvement

Oh, the times I’ve spent wondering why nobody ever says, “Hey, Wilson, come over for dinner would you?” So we could finally see his face. Born out of the Tim Allen’s childhood when he couldn’t see his neighbor’s face over the fence, Wilson was Tim’s go-to guy for all kinds of advice.

Charlie from Charlie’s Angels:

After all the approving “Good work angels!” We expected to at least see the damn guy at some damn point. Charlie from Charlie’s angels has to be the most faceless presense on television.

Ugly naked guy from Friends:

He’s caused plenty of hilarity, he killed a cat (poor thing never saw that big butt coming), Ross stripped to the bone in order to curry favour with him…So many fond memories and yet we never end up seeing the guy or hearing him speak. Maybe because he was ugly. And naked.
