TV Review: Silent Night

This is the most dramatic of Syfy’s three-in-one-night Christmas specials – it is the only one that got me a little misty-eyed – but it has plenty of light moments, and even more charm, and of course, a wee bit o’ the creepy. Like the Eureka and Warehouse 13 holiday episodes that precede it, it is a standalone offering with no reference to the events of the last one or two episodes of last season. Also like the other two holiday specials, there is a Christmas celebration that has no religious undertones but is instead a celebration of the importance of friends as family.

If you’re a fan of the show: You’ll join me in being so happy to be back in our favorite weird town. We get plenty of Audrey and Nathan and Duke, as they were before the developments at the end of the last season; the same is true of our favorite brothers who run the local newspaper. Quirky townspeople. Weird troubles. Some nice, kinda cool effects. Just what you’d hope for in an episode that is meant to become a classic.
