Everyone Christmas specialed out yet? We’re not. We have a secret weapon that protects us through the holiday season.

Anti-Christmas specials. Now, now, don’t get the wrong idea. We’re not talking about shows that advocate driving a stake of holly through anyone’s heart. We’re talking about the ones that add just enough darkness to compensate for all the sugar that gets thrown at us this time of year.

Rowan Atkinson’s “Blackadder’s Christmas Carol” is a good example. The brilliant, rubber-faced comedian turns Dickens’ holiday staple on its head with hilarious results (“I trust Christmas brings to you its traditional mix of good food and violent stomach cramp”).

Other goodies on our viewing list this season include “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation” (“Can I refill your eggnog for you? Get you something to eat? Drive you out to the middle of nowhere and leave you for dead?”), “Gremlins” (“And that's how I found out there was no Santa Claus.”), “A Christmas Story” (“Fra-gee-lay. That must be Italian.”) and, for just plain weirdness, “Pee-Wee’s Playhouse Christmas Special” (“Hey Miss Yvonne, come stand over me!”) or “A Wish for Wings That Work” (“Excuse me, is this cockroach cross-dressers in crisis?”).
