Top Five Favorite Christmas TV Episodes

  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).
  3. The Office: Every holiday episode. They’re all excellent.

4. The Big Bang Theory: The Bath Item Gift Hypothesis: Sheldon is horrified to find that he must exchange gifts with Penny, who gets him something priceless, resulting in a Saturnalia miracle.

5. Friends: The One with the Routine. Yup. It’s a holiday episode, but you probably didn’t realize it because you were so focused on this little piece of awesomeness:
