Storyline

When the Greendale Glee Club is unexpectedly sidelined, the school's effervescent choir director Cory Radison sets about recruiting the study group members to fill in. Skeptical at first, they eventually fall under his hypnotic spell - one-by-one - singing and dancing their way to the annual Christmas Pageant. Written by NBC Publicity

Trivia

Annie's musical number, "Teach Me How to Understand Christmas," is a parody of a certain sub-genre of "sexy" Christmas songs, including "Santa Baby" and "Baby, It's Cold Outside." "Santa Baby" in particular is a target here, since its combination of sexual innuendo and the infantilizing implications of the lyrics have been criticized in recent decades as awkward. See more »

Quotes

Jeff Winger: What did he just say? Did Mr. Radison kill the glee club?
Dean Pelton: And to think I trusted him enough to let him ride on a magic carpet in my dreams.

Dean Dong ...

**vague spoilers** I guess I'm just *conditioned* to laugh at awesomeness.

This was excellent, and another jab at Glee, with SNL newbie Taran Killam as the Glee club instructor (or whatever) putting in a pretty good performance. His character turns on SNL have usually been pretty good, and this works, too.

Fans of the show and Doctor Who lovers/haters will love the Dr. Space Time bits, as Pudi whites up for the role, and Glover puts on a commendable accent for his assistant.

I know that this is slightly irrelevant, but I did want to say how much I loved Troy locking the blanket fort in the last episode.

Oh, and enjoy the coda, it's just silly enough.

Merry Dean/Chang-mas!
