Well... impeccable.
12 December 2010 | by (Portugal) – See all my reviews

This episode is a great tribute to the classics Christmas specials that we've all seen in our childhood; Romeo Muller's classics of course - "Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer", "The Little Drummer Boy" or "Frosty the Snowman". The explicit reference to Rudolph, the Stop Motion shape, the narrative, and even the name of the episode follows that direction. And the feeling it's the same while watching "Abed's Uncontrollable Christmas": the extreme empathy with the main character while it searches for something with the aid of friends, and the emotions follow the up's and down's right until the end, the peak of the flow. Structured in the classic three acts (like Muller's), the episode, like other episodes that are tributes or explicitly refer to some idiosyncrasies of TV shows (Cooperative Calligraphy for instance, the bottle episode), explores that references through Abed, many times the voice of the writers in the show. All in all, impeccable cinema.
