Best Christmas special I've ever seen
20 January 2013 | by See all my reviews

This is without a doubt the best Christmas special of any TV show I've seen. Since I saw that it was going to be all in stop motion animation I was smiling. Loved it all the story was charming and touching and of course Abed's character was brilliantly portrayed by Danny Pudi (even though it was just through his voice) he really made the episode an emotional learning experience about the meaning of Christmas. The animation was very well done and the short songs were a great addition. All in all the episode had me smiling the entire way through and confirming that this is definitely if not the best then one of the best TV comedy shows on in recent years.
