The best Christmas episode of any series i've ever seen
14 December 2010 | by See all my reviews

This week I saw all «Brian and Stewie Griffin going to a distant place from Quahog» episodes and I should say that, as for me, this one was the best of them. The story is really intriguing and entertaining, several jokes made me burst out laughing and even musical parts, which usually irritate me, in this episode work quite well. The dialogues between Brian and Stewie are superb, animation is at top level, but, what is more important, this episode perfectly deliver Christmas mood from the beginning to the end. And I think everyone, who watches Simpsons as well, will admit that Set MacFarlane's Christmas story is way better this time.

I put it nine, because, some jokes are quite silly, though, it's not a big deal as there are a lot of brilliant jokes, that compensate them easily.

So don't waste your time and watch it, you'll enjoy it!
