Christmas season is upon us again and I've been busy watching Christmas TV shows. Obviously this is a tradition that I'm not alone in, but I thought I'd share with you what I've watched so far. So I can have a list for next year of what I watched and if I plan on watching it each year. (There are certain shows/movies I try to watch every year...)

Scooby Doo's Christmas - This was made just a couple of years ago, but actually followed the Scooby Doo formula well. Some of the later Scooby shows have had "real" monsters and I was pleased to see that this one didn't. Wasn't hugely Christmas(y) or entertaining, but it wasn't bad either. A fun 30 minutes.

Muppet's Christmas Carol - Despite being a HUGE Muppet fan and a huge Christmas Carol fan, I'd never actually watched this all the way through. I'd seen over 90% in assorted sections, but finally sat down and watched it all this year. I really enjoyed it, particularly Michael Caine's turn as Scrooge.

Assorted Iron Chef America Christmas Battles - I loved the original Japanese Iron Chef, but seeing as how we don't get new episodes, I settle for the American version. These were alright, but not great.

Xtreme Christmas Cake Challenge - My GF likes cooking shows, so sue me! I didn't care too much for any of the cakes quite honestly. As per the norm with this show, the guy's cake who didn't fall apart pretty much won by default.

30 Rock Christmas Special - Pretty funny. 30 Rock is a great show. Not the best episode though.

Robot Chicken Christmas Specials 1 & 2 - Both were pretty hilarious. I'd seen the one with Composite Santa before, but I didn't recall the other. I loved the Misery take on Charlie Brown's Christmas. "Val Kilm-d-er is dead"

2 Christmas Episodes of That 70's Show - One was better than the other. Don't remember the names or themes, but the one where Red has to work late and Eric and Kelso chop down a state park tree is the better of the two.

King of the Hill Christmas - Underrated show. "Peppermint schnapps makes me sloppy."

Aqua Teen Hunger Force Star-Studded Christmas Spectacular - Nowhere near as funny as "Cybernetic Ghost of Christmas Past from the Future" and wasn't really Christmas themed at all. Just clips from the movie, that didn't make the movie. Funny stuff though, but didn't jingle my bells any.

That's it so far, I think... I have a ton of stuff Netflixed and Tivoed for the next few days of Holiday viewing. I also went and saw a play of "A Christmas Story" yesterday and enjoyed it quite a bit. Some minor changes from the movie and it was painfully long at 2 1/2 hours, but it was nicely down and entertaining all the same.
