from the 15 mins i saw of this i am dissapointed by it. but i'll watch it again in full. i was hoping for more fargo.
I loved this! Loved how Jo was a secret Santa. Taggart was hilariously awesome, Santaology FTW!
Interested in trying out comics? Now is the perfect time with Marvel NOW!
Absolutely loved this episode!!! Jo being a Scrooge and turning out to be a secret Santa was awesome! Chris Parnell as physicist Santa was really well done and I teared up a bit with Jack at the end, really put me in the Christmas Spirit!
Loved loved loved it! Great idea all around.
I wasn't enamoured by it. Taggart was a parody of himself. No, worse. He's a parody of a parody. He was always a bit odd, but he was crazy for the sake of being crazy in the ep.
I won't even go into the pseudo magic that goes on with santa. Or Zoe's singing voice.
Very good Christmas episode. Very unexpected as well! It was rather enjoyable...
I am very confused....when is Carter's storytelling supposed to be set? This is their first Christmas since futzing with the timeline, but he's telling the kids a story of a past Christmas that involves a talking/mentally-stable Kevin, Fargo in charge of GD, and Allison running medical. What gives?
I loved the Christmas intro sequence, and the holiday font for the names. And it was great to see Taggart again.
Ultimately I don't think this was an especially good first effort at a Christmas episode. Too disjointed and scatterbrained for my liking, it desperately needed more focus. Hope next year's is better (if they do it again).
Lovely final moments of the episode though.
I wasn't overly thrilled about the storytelling aspect of the episode, or the timeline fuzziness, but I suspect it was done that way deliberately to leave the audience wondering....did it really happen or did Carter make it all up?
Overall though I thought it was a fun episode.

Thanks to Briangate for these!
For the Timeline-fuzziness, it was just a little look into the Future Eureka. Telling the Story about what happened this Year. I really enjoyed this Episode and I am more of a Grinch actually. So that says a lot.
Taggart really is the most the best Character of the whole Series. I hope they keep him around for ever.
I thought it was stated when the announced the Christmas specials that they weren't going to exactly fit into the Canon of the shows...maybe I dreamed that up...
I like the idea that it was a future Eureka Jack telling the story of this year's Christmas!
Now I've watched up to season 4 I really enjoyed this episode - Definately lived up to it's title
Personally I think that the kids he was telling the story to are old enough to realise just about anything goes in Eureka - especially when involving Taggart!!
Going to see how many of my non-scifi friends I can get to watch this one
Thank you Josiane for my fabulous sig/avi set
I enjoyed it--and had the same questions about the time line issues. But I'm willing to let go of canon and just have fun with an episode every once in a while.
I like Taggert--but sometimes his delivery gets swallowed and I can't understand him. I know--typical American, you say. But I've been all over the world (including to New Zealand and Wales ) and have been able to understand all the people I've talked to. I've also got many Aussie friends, and so it's not just an Australian accent thing. He doesn't enunciate (a keystone issue for an actor), and he runs his words together. So, I like the character, but I wish he'd concentrate more on being audible and less on his funky delivery.
But the show was fun--if not perfect. I laughed out loud several times.
Jack Carter has genius comic timing and physical ability. Wow.
My SG-1 Fan FicThanks, Oma, for the Sig!
