Child-like innocence
16 December 2013 | by (Valhalla) – See all my reviews

The fifth Christmas special I have decided to review in celebration of this holiday season is none other than Mr Bean's Christmas special. A show that has never really aged on me since I got into it as a child and now that I'm 17 I still watch this special.

The plot is that Mr Bean is doing Christmas shopping as well as his girlfriend wanting him to give her an engagement ring. He basically prepares for Christmas and celebrates it with his child-like persona.

The reason why I think people are coming back to this special for Christmas is because Mr Bean is basically a child in a man's body, and to see him celebrate Christmas I think kind of reminds people of that time when all they could think of on Christmas Eve is opening the presents under the tree.

I know that's not the only reason I mean there are some funny things as well such as what he does to a nativity play as well as him testing out his Christmas decorations. They're all scenes that have aged surprisingly well on me, and who can really forget that turkey scene that almost instantly comes to mind when someone mentions "Mr Bean".

So this is a lot of fun to watch as well as kind of sad in some scenes (such as him giving Christmas cards to himself) and it also could remind you of what you were like as a child on Christmas day (If you celebrate another holiday then replace every mention of "Christmas" with that - I don't want to offend other people). This is definitely worth a watch and I haven't stopped watching it every year since I first saw it. Just don't expect a moral or anything like that at the end of the day.
