I don't understand the hating on this one. It was basically another Anthology with an Xmas theme. It wasn't supposed to and didn't need to "make sense". It made me laugh a lot, and that's all it needed to do. OK, the singing CAN get on my nerves, but the songs weren't so bad.

This episode gets a lot of hate, but it certainly isn't the worst Futurama episode. However, this one just kind of fell flat. I liked the songs in the original series, but they didn't have any appeal here in my opinion. The endings often came out of nowhere, and the plots were a little boring. The one joke I really found amusing was the albino worm joke (albeit it was a bit crude) but other than that the humor was a little bland for me. This episode would have been worth a 2, except for one thing. Revisiting 'The Sting' sounded like a great concept for a future 'Fry and Leela' episode, but this one just completely ruined it. 'The Sting' was my favorite episode ever and arguably one of the best of the 'emotional' Futurama episodes, but this episode passes it by like it's nothing. That was enough for me to give this a 1.

This episode was pretty solid. Not as good as the Anthology episodes, but it was fun to see the three different christmas styles.

I loved how everyone died at the end of each one and that it was an anti enviromental multi-holiday three pack snack heart attack quack, quack!

An absolutely terrible episode.
Not one single laugh eliciting or heart-warming moment in the entire half-hour. I honestly felt like punching the TV after viewing it.

I give it 1 out if 5, and that's only because the scoring doesn't allow 0's.

I'll make this a review for the whole season since it's the last ep. The episode reflects what is symptomatic of the whole season, very uneven. It seems like the writing crew very much lacks a red thread to follow, some of the episodes are pretty damn good, some are just lousy. Hopefully the commissioning of a whole new season will make the writers focus more on quality instead of what seems like crazy ideas they need to get on "tape" before the whole show gets cancelled again. Futurama reborn needs more consistency!

It's a shame that this episode exists, thus tainting the wonderful standard of 'Futurama's other anthology episodes ('Anthology of Interest I', 'Antholofy of Interest II' and 'Reincarnation').
It has a handful of brilliant jokes but they're lost in a sea of cringe-inducingly bad ones as well as a wonky premise that doesn't quite work although you can see what they're going for. The musical numbers are also all atrocious which is, again, a real shame given how great 'Futurama's musical numbers usually are. They're extremely bland musically and the voice-work sounds tired, almost like someone singing along to a song on the radio, to themselves, rather than a proper performance. That's not so much the voice-actor's faults, though, given the awful material they had to work with.

That all said and done, I think this is far from being the worst episode of the show. In my opinion, it's much better than both 'Attack of the Killer App' and 'In-A-Gadda-Da-Leela'.
