A Different Christmas Carol
5 December 2017 | by Christmas-ReviewerSee all my reviews

I HAVE REVIEWED OVER 400 (C H R I S T M A S ) MOVIES AND SPECIALS.

SO PLEASE BEWARE OF SOME REVIEWERS THAT ONLY HAVE ONLY ONE REVIEW. WHEN ITS A POSITIVE THERE IS A GOOD CHANCE THEY WERE INVOLVED WITH THE PRODUCTION. NOW I HAVE NO AGENDA! I REVIEW MOVIES & SPECIALS AS A WAY TO KEEP TRACK OF WHAT I HAVE SEEN! I HAVE DISCOVERED MANY GEMS IN MY QUEST TO SEE AS MANY " C H R I S T M A S " MOVIES AS I CAN.

Now I normally do not review "Christmas Episodes" of television shows but I made an exception here because it was a nice change of pace from what you might expect from any show dealing with a " "Christmas Theme".

Now this was an usual "Christmas Theme" episode. Most Christmas episodes of television shows are always pumped with nostalgia for days long past. In this episode it was nostalgic but it shows thing in the "Good Old Days" were not so great for most people.

This episode Will, Grace, Karen and Jack wish they could have experienced Christmas in old New York, but realize the past was not quite as romantic or open to diversity as they pictured it.

What is nice is that the entire cast plays against the type of character that they normally play on this show. It is a hoot however when there "normal" characters seem to have their origins shine through the people they are playing as 1912 New Yorker's.

This was a very bold episode from Network Television. Thumbs Up!
