"HO HO HO! Everyone's dead! Stay tuned for more holiday hilarity!"
I didn't expect them to go the "Tales of Interest" route for this episode, just because I typically love the Xmas shows.
I think this one lost a lot of steam after the first act. The pine tree keeper and the barking snakes were the highlight for me. Though I will say that it's about time they added in Dick Cheney's head as Nixon's evil VP.
Is anyone happier this show came back than Coolio? Well...maybe Al Gore.
