You guys smoking mistletoe or something?!?


This episode was pathetic and lame, not to mention cheesy, we only have a few episodes before the series is over and they wasted it on this?!? This ranks up there with the Star Wars Christmas special.... Only people who would like this are 12 year olds...

Last years Special was really good, they seriously dropped the ball this year... the writers should be fired...


This is a terrible start to Season Five, I hope this is not a sign of what the rest of the season is going to be like.. if so I can understand why SyFy is cancelling it...


Well this 54 year old enjoyed it. But then I don't keep my inner child locked away.

I enjoyed all the anime styles they used especially the clay animation when I was a kid Rudolph was my favorite Holiday TV special.

I loved the car telling off Carter for all the bad things that has happened to it over the years. And I really liked Sninjas.

+1

I think it was a complete disaster. A mixture of the intellectual level of 4 year olds and mature geeks pleasuring themselves obscenely with graphic tablets.

It was so lame and pathetic I'm still shocked.

Compared to the brilliant wit of last season's Xmas special, this one is really catastrophic.

Edward James Olmos lent his voice to this episode, but I was uncertain as to which character he portrayed. Was he one of the sleigh dogs?

I hope they include a line for Carl (Carter's jeep) complaining about all the beating it's gotten over the years. :lol:


I almost wanted Carl to go on listing *everything* that has happened to him over the years. ^^ good scene!

Ok...when was the timeline for this episode. Its obviously after Jack and Allison decided to move in together but before the last episode or before Joe decided to leave...am I correct? Shouts out to Sheldon Cooper and Captain Adoma...


As someone else said, it is outside the timeline -- but did anyone notice that Carter was wearing a wedding ring? So he and Allison must have been mairried, not just living together.

Seriously? The only joke I really thought was lame was the Fargo "My precious" line to the big red button, who replied "One Button to rule them all." Way too forced and outdated.

Done. This is one of my favorite gags from a story I'm trying to turn into a web comic:

Coarse climbed the long stairs to the platfom and placed his hands upon the hilt of the mighty sword. Lifting slowly, he pulled it out of its resting place easily. The townsfolk cheered and clapped at his deed, and the young prince laughed out loud. "I did it! I pulled the sword from the stone!"

The lad's friends slapped him on the back and congratulated him.

Coarse gave his new weapon a good look. It was a tad bit rusty, but there was something distinctly familiar about it. "Hey, this sword looks a lot like my dad's. It's even got an inscription on it like his...Amendroxaprine..." The sword's engraving glowed ever so slightly at the sound of its name. "...Well that's different. Now I guess we should go see the mayor about that key."

Later that day, the lord mayor scoffed at their request. "You can't have the key to that tower! Are you crazy? No one who goes in there ever finds their way back out again."

Coarse lifted his new sword up to show the man. "I pulled Amendroxaprine from the stone. It's my destiny to solve the riddle of Elinore Tower," he said resolutely.

The mayor assumed a confused look. "Everyone pulls Amendroxaprine from the stone. It's not like it was
stuck or anything. Didn't anyone tell you? Make sure you put it back before you leave town."

That episode was too agitated, shifty and ironic for young children who like cartoons, and too silly or pointless for adults who like science-fiction.

But certainly graphic designers with LSD addiction and childhood memories from the 70s/80s must have loved it.

Well at least I am happy I was able to fast-forward instead of watching clay characters chasing a giant snowman for so long. And believe me I am an admirer of the original Scooby-Doo and stuff, which made sense in their times. That was not a hommage it was psychedelic delirium, plus for the more sedate parts a self-complacent and slightly underwhelming exercice de style.

I enjoy Eureka more than I do Warehouse 13, but in the case of this year's Christmas episodes W13 was the clear winner.

Made sense in it's time? You do know that Scooby Doo is still being made, and the kids love it just as much as ever.

Really? I'm not a fan of W13, but try to watch their Christmas eps. I lasted the whole thing which makes it much better than last year, but while I found it okay except for Pete's constant over acting, I wouldn't place it above Eureka's special this year.

Oh, I sooooo agree with you on the Pete stuff. As time goes on, he's become even more
insufferable to watch. He's trying way too hard. I like the pace of Anthony DiNozzo on
NCIS better...although he too can be annoying. And, Myka's lips weren't so prominent in this
episode. :lol: :lol:

Yes, 'Do You See What I See' was very well done. Did you notice the many times that line was used in the episode?
