12 Shows of Christmas, Part 1

Well SideReelers, it's that time of year again! In celebration of the season (and the wonderful episodes it brings) Scotwot and TelevisionFanboy have gathered together a bounty of holiday-themed episodes for you to enjoy! Whether you're filled with cheer or are feeling kind of Grinchy, these shows are sure to put you in the holiday spirit. Since Christmas is not always portrayed realistically on TV (we've never sung joyfully with townsfolk after our presents were stolen), we've collected all of the funny, endearing, and heart-warming episodes you'll need to make it through the holidays.   For the first show of Christmas, TelevisionFanboy gave to me... a Simpsons episode bounty Lackluster song parody aside, no show captures the magic of Christmas quite like The Simpsons . Unlike most holiday specials, the show embraces the realistic difficulties of the season. Homer spends too much money on his own presents; Bart shoplifts a gift he wanted but didn't get; even Moe's traditional Christmas suicide attempt is endearingly grounded in reality. If you like your Christmas specials hilarious, absurd, and slightly realistic this is the motherlode. And, of course, Homer's parody of the Grinch is anything but lackluster.   For the second show of Christmas, Scotwot gave to me... a Doctor Who mystery For generations, the BBC has commissioned Christmas episodes of its most popular shows. Over the past decade, some of the most entertaining, compelling, and gripping episodes have come from Doctor Who . This is mainly due to the holiday episodes being intertwined with the current plotline, which leads to lots of surprises -- a new assistant or a plot point that hints at what adventures may come. All of this combined with with superb writing, acting, and cinematography makes for nail-biting Christmas episodes. The BBC also has lots of online treats for Doctor Who fans this year; I absolutely love their Adventure Calendar. (Don't worry about having missed anything. The doors that are already opened still have their gifts available and already — they are everything!) Combined with the BBC's Doctor Who YouTube channel, I'd say we're all set for a very busy Christmas with the Doctor. Plus, we have a sneak peek at the trailer for the Christmas special! The special will be shown in the U.K. and U.S. on Christmas Day. I'm sure that all fans will have a fabulous time with whatever the Doctor has in store for us this Yuletide season! It's Doctor Who at Christmas, so anything can happen!   For the third show of Christmas, TelevisionFanboy gave to me... Chrismukkah from The O.C. For those of you who don't know... Chrismukkah is magical. The brainchild of The O.C. 's Seth Cohen (Adam Brody), this hybrid holiday was created by "drawing on the best that Christianity and Judaism have to offer." While the holiday may seem glib to some, it created a legitimate cultural phenomenon. Mixed-faith children all over the world now had a way of doubling the amount of presents they got while celebrating the traditions of both holidays. On The O.C. , Chrismukkah was all about the DRAMA. It focused on teen romances, friendly squabbles, and the importance of family coming together in celebration. Come for the cute Ryan/Marissa or Summer/Seth moments, stay for the Chrismukkah Barmitzvukkah!   For the fourth show of Christmas, Scotwot gave to me… Friends and fremily Friends will forever perfectly encapsulate that time in our lives when our friends become family. The show was such a cultural phenomenon that we even gave ourselves a new word to describe our way of life: fremily! What I love about Friends holiday episodes is simple: all of them focus on celebrating and putting friendship first, despite the stresses of the season. Through their ups and downs, these friends are always there for one another. (Got ya singing the theme tune, didn't I?) Here are some reminders of how funny, sweet, heart-warming, silly, and lovable the holiday episodes are: The things we do for our friends. Giving them exactly the present they wanted, even though it messes up your perfect apartment and has you vacuuming pine needles till August. Phoebe wasn't expecting this… Making our loved ones feel happy at Christmas is the best gift, ever! That said, it wouldn't be Friends without a quip from Chandler. But wait, there's more! Friends has barely started with its holiday surprises... Oh, Ross. I bet he ordered his costume for Hanukkah very early. Probably mid-July. Talking of costumes, who knew Joey was so competitive about holiday eating?! Just look at those pants! Don't mention pie, please. Just... don't. All this eating, it's infectious! Chandler, put down the plate… slowly back away from the counter. That said, why wouldn't Chandler and Joey enjoy eating too much at the holidays? Especially as they don't have to make the food, which so much thought and hard work has gone into making just perfect. Monica the chef is a control freak even at Christmas. Despite her "helpers" not doing everything to her exact specifications, Monica still makes the most amazing dinner. Plus, to make everything perfect, look — it's snowing! A vintage Happy Holidays to one and all from Friends , plus all of your reel friends here at SideReel!   Check out parts two and three of the 12 Shows of Christmas from Scotwot and TelevisionFanboy . p { text-align: justify; }

Why ‘The O.C.’ Was Teen TV at Its Very Best

For a brief, glorious time in the mid-naughts, The O.C. ruled the television airwaves. At a time in broadcasting history when the viewing audience was becoming increasingly fragmented and young people were becoming harder to get in front of a TV program in any number, The O.C. captured a sizable, youthful audience in its first two seasons (the third and fourth seasons, not so much) with its story of a misunderstood boy from Chino who found a family in Newport, California. That boy was Ryan Atwood (Ben McKenzie), of course, and that family was the Cohens. And, starting today, you can watch their journey to becoming one big, angsty, complicated, yet ultimately loving family on Hulu where all four seasons of The O.C. are now streaming. In honor of this auspicious occasion, we’re taking the time to honor the series that defined the turn of the millennium. The O.C. wasn’t just a guilty pleasure. At its height (Season 1, let’s be honest), it was one of the best shows on television… READ MORE...
