Our 10 Favorite SFF Holiday Episodes


“A Roswell Christmas Carol”

No show has combined angsty teenagers and aliens quite as well as Roswell. In the season 2 holiday episode the show addresses Max’s issue with not being able to use his healing powers because it risks exposing his secret. He’s haunted by the ghost of a man he didn’t save and ends up risking it all by healing all the children in a hospital ward. His serious struggle is offset by the more comedic storyline of Isabel on a crusade to get everyone involved in Christmas activities.
