"it's christmas!" "IT'S DECEMBER 10th!"
9.5/10. Perfect episode to watch on December 10th, and this was one of the first episode where Community felt like the show it would become. It's impressive how much it found its voice so early in its run. The emotional conflict between Jeff and Shirley is well set up, and what's more, everyone in the ensemble has something to do. It's a funny episode that manages to work in some hilariously quotable lines and tackle something like religion and the holiday spirit without feeling preachy, offensive, or cliche. Great stuff.
