One of the few episodes which I'd rate so low... The first christmas episode was awesome, original, and had the perfect atmosphere for this time of year, I loved it! This one was too 'whacky' for me. As far as the violence goes it certainly must be the most violent Futurama episode to date though perhaps not as much as Fox would have led us to believe. Overall I think it'd been better had they just broadcasted it last year and got it over with, then at least we'd probably had a new x-mas show this year as well.
And I see that next week there'll again be no new episode and yet another rerun instead. Why Fox does that is lightyears beyond me; why not use futurama's timeslot to broadcast the new episodes of the new season? They're there, they have them, the timeslot is free, just *show* then already, jeez...
Makes me wonder if the whole of season four will be shown with one re-run inbetween every new episode.

Good one, not one of the best but still memorizable. Especially the parts with the Prof. were very good. The elves song is awesome,thx for the lyrics

What can I say, it was great, not excellent, and it wasn't nearly as hilarious as "X-Mas Story" and will never be an annual Christmas special, but it was likeable enough to give a 4!

What can I say, I just love seeing santa in a rampage.
And more, discovering professor's agressive and violent side, when defending himselft from santa.

Well an episode not >that< funny. I suppose i havent missed too much when FOX dismissed this episode in the first place. What enlightened the whole was Bender as Santa. (Especially him combined with Prof. [I've got Alzheimer] Farnsworth) Yeah that was funny when Farnsworth shot Bender reapeatedly in the a** :))
But the rest was more than average to say at least. Unsurprisingly the bad santa lives a a castle guarded by weaponry and dogs and also these elves and their singing (i hate that, is this a some sort of broadway show or what, baahhh).
But in the end the bad santa is back in action and it is good to have him back (singing is stopped, you know what i mean ;)).
To sum it up a 3+ but nothing more is my rating for this episode. Too much predictable stuff and too few "Ahh hehe" surprises plus a quite satisfactory end (on my point of view).
A bloody christmas to all ya...*bg

Nice episode if a bit tedious underway to the ending, the ending scene is nice, but somewhat it wasn't really that emotional.

This was one of the funniest episodes id seen for a while (although in my opinion, almost every episode is hillarious). I have watched it 3 times and think it is really great. "How dare you lie in front of Jesus??" hehe - Zoidy made a really good jesus.

This episode's position in my "Worst 10 Futurama episodes" is very high.
Very disappointing after this firework of jokes in the first x-mas episode.
