1. Black Mirror

Yeah, let’s start off with a creepy one. White Christmas tells the tales of technology ruining Christmas, and was originally the 2014 Christmas special.

Jon Hamm and Rafe Spall star as two men stationed at a remote outpost in the middle of snow-covered wilderness who tell each other stories of their lives. As with most Black Mirror episodes, there’s a twist.

2. RuPaul’s Drag Race

Season 3, Episode 2 – The Queen Who Mopped X-Mas 


This is a little more festive, and of course, fabulous. The Christmas challenge will brighten up any cold dark Sunday evening.

3. Orange is the New Black

Season 1, Episode 13 – Can’t Fix Crazy

The ladies of Litchfield perform a nativity play, and Piper realises Pennsatucky is trying to destroy her. At least your Christmas isn’t shaping up to be as bad as this one.

4. Arrested Development

Season 2, Episode 6 – Afternoon Delight 


Gob gets roasted at Bluth’s company Christmas party and fires the entire staff. That’s only one of the ways this is an amazing Christmas episode.

5. The Royle Family Christmas Special 2000

Is it just me who watches this every Christmas without fail? Do yourself a favour and watch it before the 25th. It’s even better with age.

6. Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

Season 2, Episode 8 – Kimmy Goes to a Hotel

If you haven’t watched all three series of Kimmy Schmidt, start immediately. In this festive episode, Kimmy celebrates Fake Christmas with Dong to the Poconos. There’s even an appearance from Pacey from Dawson’s Creek. Hilarious.

7. Gossip Girl

Season 1, Episode 11- Roman Holiday


Think your Christmas tree, decorations, and parties are fabulous and fashionable? Think again. This episode is pure lush, and you’ll wish you were part of New York high society until Blair’s dad comes home with his boyfriend and the usual drama ensues.

8. Bojack Horseman Christmas Special
