Now I somehow understand why they normally split up the specials, after having the epic Eureka Episode, this one is nice, but not nearly as epic.

It was great to see how the Team has to Infiltrate the Warehouse for once, though I didnt care for Petes constant sentimental speeches. I know that was important to the story, so that the Characters help him, but in the end it seemed very cheesy at times.

I am kind of sad that we didnt see Jinxy again, for example they could have had him working in the same place as Myka and overhearing their conversation. He hears the truth in what Pete says and tries to help.

I liked this. It was actually one of the better Christmas specials I've seen lately. Definitely a step up from last year's. To me it seemed like a Warehouse 13 episode where it just so happened to be Christmas.

And near the end, when Pete hugged Mrs. Fredrick... I laughed so hard! Oh man, that was hilarious!

I have to agree with you, when Pete hugged Mrs. F. I was ROTFLMAO and his scream when they gathered around the tv to watch It's a Wonderful Life was a fitting end.

In general I don't like what was essentially an AU episode but this one worked for me.

I loved it. It was funny, charming, and heart warming. Just what I expect from Warehouse 13. Can't wait to see what they do for next year's special. :D

Shame that they didn't bring Jinx back for the Christmas special. They could've atleast included him in the living room scene when they all sit down to watch "It's a Wonderful Life".

I'm curious where HG Wells was, assuming MacPherson debronzed her in that timeline aswell. Did anyone see the HG statue next to the Bronzer?

I didn't see HG Wells. I'm only speculating, but considering that Pete wasn't there, perhaps the debronzing of HG wasn't necessary, and therefore MacPherson never did so.

I liked it!!! I look forward to seeing these x-mas specials from WH 13 & Eureka every year now since they were so good last year. Hope they keep them going, well at least WH13 & not cancel it.

What did Pete say when him & Myka rescued Artie & Claudia before they were bronzed...when they were leaving the area and someone said what about Mrs. Fredrick (she was still bronzed) and Pete said ???? I couldn't make out what he said and haven't had the chance to rewatch it yet.

I loved the Christmas sector of the warehouse, especially seeing the famous "award" leg lamp from A Christmas Story (love that movie) :p

JInx got a mention at least. Didn't Claudia say she should have gone with Jinx?

Could have skipped Pete's singing at the beginning, but otherwise I enjoyed this episode. A treat when the regular episodes aren't being aired.

I loved this one. Just enough sap to make it Christmasy but still stayed true to the overall concept of the show.

To be honest, this episode could have easily not been about Christmas at all. Not that I am complaining though.

I think it still had enough Christmas cheer at the end to make you know it was a Christmas show. I am not complaining either. I much preferred WH13 and Haven's Christmas eps to Eureka's.

they should have had Jinks!! I just really don't like tv episodes where the make the main characters go crazy :S. I like strong stories with all characters working together.

Pete wasn't going crazy, he was never born. It was a take on the story that the Christmas movie, "It's a Wonderful Life" was based on.

Yes , but it is annoying when they make the characters feels as though they are going crazy and something is not right, that kind of storyline just bugs me. The story was okay, but I like the one better from last year. Many tv shows pull this kind of storyline and I think it is so lame

Yeah, I didn't really like how Pete reacted. You think after Leena didn't recognize him and said he had no Aura he would have realized that this wasn't some bad guy's trick? That was a little annoying.

I happened to like the storyline for this special. So I'll agree to disagree with those of you who have issues with it. ;)
