    I thought the various animation sequences were pretty cool, especially when they turned into ass kickers.

    "Are you guys looking up my dress?" "Noooo."

    It was good.

    Warehouse 13 was better, but Eureka was good.

    And Haven was OK. Considering that I'm opposed to special Christmas episodes on general principle (mainly because in principle, they generally suck), it was a good night!

    I missed the original broadcast but am happy that it will be rerunning a few more times. I'll be back after I watch it tomorrow.

    Maybe I'm not sappy for Christmas, but while I thought there were some cute moments in there, but overall I thought the episode Meh....

    A couple of questions What was Jo doing there? She left at the end of the last episode. and Jenna seemed to age quite a bit from the last time I remember seeing her.

    Last year's Xmas Ep was also pretty far out-of-continuity. As SARAH said, (paraphrasing) "Maybe this happened, and maybe it didn't."

    Christmas episodes are generally out of continuity.

    Assume this was set some time before the season finale.

    Possible spoiler, you have been warned!

    Noticed both Carter and Allison were wearing rings on their left hand. Did I miss an episode?

    This must have been a blast for the writers because every time they asked themselves "can we go this silly? should we?" they allowed themselves to say "yes". I think it worked because it went so far. Also, how the heck did they get Edward James Olmos for a 15-second voice cameo?

    I thought the ep was a total waste of time.

    I loved this episode. I was literally LOL many, many times. Sure, it didn't advance any type of story arc, but this is Eureka we're talking about. Personally, I thought this was the best of the three Christmas specials on Syfy, followed by W13, then Haven. I guess I prefer the funny, silly holiday specials.

    Has the spaceship to Titan taken off yet? Zane, Henry's wife and Fargo's gf weren't in this episode.

    Apparently, it didn't sink in the first time. :D

    Considering the dud of a Christmas special they had last year, I didn't have high expectations. Having said that, I really enjoyed this one. Lots of laughs for me! Too bad they didn't have more time to do the South Park and Simpsons/Futurama styles. :)

    My DVR cutoff the credits, was that Jim Parsons as the voice of the Jeep?

    This is episode 5-11, so it's very possible they get married in the next 10 episodes.

    I missed that! Was he one of the sleigh dogs?

    I did however recognize the Jeep's voice as being Sheldon from BBT.

    Now we're putting spoiler tags around things that appeared in the episode we're discussing? Really???

    Well the whole series is a "waste of time," but a FUN waste of time. :)

    I thought this was one of the best Christmas episodes of any show I've seen.

    The timing on this one struck me odd also. I didn't expect to Jo in this episode since she left. So, I decided to watch it as a fun episode only and not try to dissect the story line.
