18 Of the Most Underrated Christmas Episodes
Christmas episodes are among the best ways to build anticipation for the holidays. Many, many TV shows have done at least one Christmas episode in their run. Some of those episodes are objectively good television. There are stone-cold classics from shows like The Office and Community, and plenty of others that just fell flat. In the middle, there are Christmas episodes that don’t often get attention for how great they really are.
Because they don’t get tons of hype, these episodes often aren’t as well remembered. Some are explicit Christmas specials. They’re the kinds of episodes that sitcoms have perfected where Christmas is the subject. For other episodes, Christmas is more incidental. Whatever the case may be, each is well worth rewatching or discovering for the very first time.
