Good, not great. I've been pretty down on the season but I still didn't think this was as bad as many people seem to think.

The Xmas episode was, for me, by far the worst. There wasn't enough time to have a coherent conclusion and so the end seemed way too forced - the humor was pushed out to make room for exposition. And my god, the songs... an AOI episode is not a good choice for musical accompaniment, there just isn't enough time to fit it in (even if they weren't bad, as these were).

Robonukkah was, as many have noted, the best of the bunch. Decent twist, plenty of humor, and reasonable holiday references.

Kwanzaa was definitely the most pointed holiday critique, although the re-launch of the Space Bees was both unnecessary and not particularly well-executed. It was definitely average.

horrible. it was like watching family guy mixed with treehouse of horror...not a futurama christmas. very few laughs, songs were bleh compared to other futurama tunes. Not only one of the worst of the season, but of the entire series.

Omagawd, this thing is pretty close to rock bottom. I got more kicks from episodes widely regarded as tragic than this... thing. Three half-baked and rather weak storylines, drastically disposable music, a plethora of unfunny and redundant self-references and jokes. Probably the only episode to never even make me smile properly. Surprising crash and burn for an otherwise sturdy comeback season.

Epic fail :(

I thought it was quite a good episode. Deserves a better rating, and the people who give it 1 star really piss me off.
On the other hand, the songs were terrible, and I think the xmas story was the best and could have been 20 minutes.
Still 5/5

It made me laugh a few times, but it's still not up to par with the older episodes. The humor is very ADD, a lot like Family Guy, cutting quickly from one thing to another. The first episodes from this summer were this way, but slowly got better; this one was a step backwards.

don't know people are down on this...weird. i think it's old fans who don't know that they've grown up and don't see the show as they used to when they were little.
