Top Five Favorite Christmas TV Episodes

Posted on Posted in Fangirling with a Purpose, Holidays with Jane, Other Media
  1. Psych: The Polarizing Express. Shawn has his own special version of It’s a Wonderful Life. Kinda. This episode pays homage to Austin Powers, includes a Nick Nolte joke, and has an awesome Grinch Easter egg.

  2. Chuck: Chuck versus Santa Claus. Chuck has to save himself and everyone at the Buy More. Casey gets a toe shot off, Jeff and Lester save the day (sort of), and guest stars include Michael Rooker (Merle from The Walking Dead) and Reginald VelJohnson (Carl from Family Matters).
