No Xmas Classic
20 December 2017 | by CuriosityKilledShawnSee all my reviews

There's not really much as stake here in this T-Bag Christmas Special, and it's not much of a "cracker". One Xmas Eve old Bag Tallulah plots to replace all of Santa's gifts with a hypnotic device that will help her enchant all of the planet's children for her own evil desires. Naturally, T-Shirt is the first victim of this and becomes her unwitting assistant once more.

The bulk of the plot centres around a young Victorian boy (what century is this set in, exactly?) and his nanny after T-Bag misses her chance to incapacitate Santa at the North Pole and awaits his arrival in a London townhouse while posing as a Mary Poppins-type nanny.

There are a few laughs but it feels like an extended skit rather than a self-contained special episode. Elizabeth Estensen is, as always, a delight to watch and is every bit as mad as you'd expect her to be, so I can't really complain.
