The One With Christmas...
19 November 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I absolutely love this episode. Once again, it's got a lot to do with the fact that it's a themed episode. I do love Christmas episodes, and this one is no exception.

In this episode, it's Christmas time in the 99, and Captain Holt is receiving death threats. So surprisingly, he decides to put Jake in charge of his security. Jake loves his new responsibility, and of course, abuses his power a little bit. Meanwhile, Amy tries to get everyone in the precinct to take a Christmas photo for the Captain, but everyone else isn't enthused, and it becomes especially hard when Rose refuses to smile. And Terry has to undergo a psych evaluation, and needs to get his "mojo" back.

Best part of the episode: Jake being Captain Holt's security.

Overall, I give this episode an 8 out of 10, which in my ratings book is: Awesome.
