The Goldbergs (Hulu)
"A Christmas Story"
Season 3, Episode 10
Double dog dares and bedazzled '80s holiday sweaters, it's a laugh for the family and nostalgia galore.
The Mindy Project (Hulu)
"Christmas Party Sex Trap"
Season 2, Episode 11
Oh, Mindy. Enough said. Lots of fun.
Shitt$ Creek (Hulu)
"Merry Christmas, Johnny Rose"
Season 4, Episode 13
Okay, if you're new to the Rose family, then start from S1E1 because this series is the greatest holiday gift of all.
The Office (Netflix)
Season 7, Episodes 11 & 12
"The name is Bond, Santa Bond." Michael in rare form (okay, not that rare). And Holly is back.
New Girl (Netflix)
Season 1, Episode 9
Awkward and sweet as always. Ups, downs and an ending that might just make your heart warm and eyes teary.
Season 1, Episode 10
A DiMeo-dysfunctional holiday episode does not disappoint. Minnie Driver = mom spirit animal.
Bob's Burgers (Hulu)
"Have Yourself a Maily Linda Christmas"
Season 10, Episode 10
Sigh. We bypassed Bob's Burgers for years. Now it's a family's favorite. Clever, and you'll end up humming the original music in the shower.
Ally McBeal (Hulu)
"Making Spirits Bright"
Season 2, Episode 10
Two words: Peter MacNicol. Catch this episode then start from the beginning and never take your eyes off John "The Biscuit" Cage, played by MacNicol. Balm for whatever ails you. Your new best friend.
