"Community" Special Christmas Episode - Review

Wednesday, December 08, 2010 Posted by Rita A

I grew up with the classic Stop Motion Christmas Specials. Those beloved shows of Rudolph and Santa Claus is Coming to Town. My favorite is The Little Drummer Boy. Watching these holiday classics was always a family tradition.

The popular show "Community" took the Stop Motion Animation idea and created a special Christmas episode - Abed's Uncontrollable Christmas.
The story line is Abed's search for the meaning of Christmas. His friends become concerned about his obsession and help or hinder his quest. NBC's "Community," is a smart comedy series about a band of misfits who attend Greendale Community College. Follow their journey to the meaning of Christmas.

When Abed (Danny Pudi) wakes up in stop-motion animation, he takes it as a sign that he and the group must re-discover the meaning of Christmas. Meanwhile, Jeff (Joel McHale) and Britta (Gillian Jacobs) become growingly concerned about Abed's mental health and enlist the help of Professor Duncan (John Oliver). The group undergoes hypnosis to explore Abed's winter wonderland and soon unravel the truth behind Abed’s madness. Chevy Chase, Yvette Nicole Brown, Donald Glover, and Ken Jeong also star.

I had the chance to preview Abed's Uncontrollable Christmas courtesy of Sony and One2One Network. I was a lot of fun to watch. The imagination of the events is mesmerizing and it touches on several story lines from our Christmas classic shows. Each character is represented in Stop Motion Animation. The show is filled with the humor, and sarcasm that is the "Community". It is also filled with friendship, caring and lots of holiday fun. There are songs included just like the holiday classics we love. The Stop Motion Animation made the entire show feel like a Christmas Special! I loved the Christmas gumdrop scene! I enjoyed watching and will be sure to tune in again. How does Abed's quest turn out? You will have to watch and see! The show airs this Thursday (12/9) at 8 pm EST/ 7pm CST on NBC. Check your local listings for channel. Don't miss it!
