Storyline

Elves find a rat-eaten Santa, skull smashed. The victim was the city's only permanent, obsessively devote Santa, Kris Kringle, who lived above a toy shop. Still, their was a criminal side to his generosity. Booth's mood is already miserable as Parker must spend this Christmas with his mother and her Coastguard friend. Prosecutor Christine's prank, in exchange for allowing a Brennan prison Christmas reunion, actually helps cheer everyone up. Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

The security guard, Marty Moussa, is identified as an Egytian. He says that he's Coptic, and they celebrate Christmas. It is true that Copts observe Christmas, but they use the Orthodox calendar, which puts Christmas on January 7 rather than December 25. A minority of Copts, however, is Catholic, and they do follow the Roman Catholic calendar. It is possible that Moussa is Coptic Catholic. See more »

Starting my Christmas season
28 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Just the thing to start the Christmas viewing of shows to get me in the spirit. Santa barely recognizable as he lay in a pile of sewage. But, yes it is Kris Kringle, and that opens a slew of jokes to make this an interesting Christmas show.

I am still not completely thrilled by this series, as the characters in Kathy Reich's books are so much more interesting, but they have to appeal to the Fox and WB viewers, so they bring in the pretty boy. The supporting cast is always enjoyable as they bring some interesting characters to the table. I do like the addition of John Francis Daley as Dr. Sweets. Patricia Belcher as AUSA Julian is also good.

I'll keep watching as I like the concept. I just wish it more international like the books. You can't have everything.
