Christmas has come to Glee, and it's surprisingly raunchy. As soon as Fox advised viewer discretion, citing sexual situations, violence, and suggestive dialogue, I knew this would be an interesting episode. The title, "Previously Unaired Christmas," had me a little confused, and to be honest, Jane Lynch's introduction just made me even more befuddled. For the record, this episode was filmed this year, but as you might recall, this season's timeline is a little wonky. Instead of skipping a holiday episode altogether, they just decided to go back in time. Sure enough, Glee pulls off an episode that's supposed to have happened in the past without screwing with the present plots. You know what that means? Filler.
This isn't to say it's a bad episode. There are some fabulous moments (Santana Claus obviously being the greatest), but it's so scattered. In any case, let's get to spreading the holiday cheer! I'm going over the highlights after the jump.
