Way too dumb and too obvious
13 March 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

We begin with everyone in both families happy that they are spending Christmas together for the first time. Usually they go their separate ways to be with distant members of their own families--which considering that they almost never see them, sounds like a good thing.

That was the start of this really dumb Christmas episode. I don't see how the kids would be all excited to spend Christmas with the same four other people they see every day in their home. A trip to visit someone else sounds much better. Especially true for teenage Chris--how much fun does she plan to have with her grade-school brother and his friend of the same age? We see Lucy buying her Christmas turkey while Viv comes in right after buying the Christmas tree. Now I may not be an expert on these matters, but it seems to me a most unusual thing to have someone bring their full-sized Christmas tree--real and painted white--inside the butcher shop, but that's what Viv did.

The ladies immediately begin a quarrel that lasts through most of the episode. They totally disagree on what color of tree, type of ornaments, main dish to have for Christmas dinner, what time to eat the meal, when to open presents...everything. Even after they get all mad and decide to go their separate ways for Christmas, and the kids desire to do things at home jars them back into the Christmas spirit, Lucy and Viv immediately let one small accident take them back into a big fight, leading to the ultimate ruination of both of their trees, and more.

A couple of Carols from the two boys and a group of other boys finishes off this episode as everyone is suddenly happy again.

The nasty bickering wasn't fun, nor was the stupid destruction of the trees and ornaments. It started when Viv stupidly put a cherished ornament on the couch and Lucy stupidly sat on the couch without looking. Then Viv accidentally stepped on Lucy's favorite old childhood ornament that she had idiotically left on the floor rather close to Viv's tree. Nobody but Lucy has a cherished old ornament in hand while decorating a tree and decides to just place it on the floor near the area where someone else is also decorating a tree.

Just a rather dumb show that lacked laughs. I have been going through my season 1 DVD set and so far this is the dumbest, least funny episode.
