'Twas the Nightmare Before Christmas (#2.11)
14 January 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The girls are planning to go to their families to celebrate Christmas. But then they are held hostage by a guy in the crisis center dressed as Santa who wants someone to celebrate Christmas with him. After they leave and get to the airport they find out that they are stuck in Miami because all flights are cancelled. So the end up in a diner where the realize that the already are with a family.

Not a bad episode, but a bit weird in organizing,there seems to be no real story. We jump from presents to hostages to airports cancellations. What excited me was Sam Anderson in his pre-Lost days.I actually realized that he is also the principal on Growing pains, never saw it in him when I saw Bernard, he really did change! His character Myer was very entertaining though!
