‘Single Parents’ Enters ‘The Magic Box’

VANAPHASE™ the Vanadium powerhouse!

 ABC’s hit series Single Parents continues to entertain audiences, this year their Christmas/Holiday special deals with Poppy (Kimrie Lewis) dealing with separation anxiety while her son Rory (Devin Trey Campbell) is away with his father in Hawaii, as Angie (Leighton Meester) must deal with not only her Santa fetish but having to scrounge up a gift for her new boyfriend, who got her something, all the while her son Graham (Tyler Wladis) deals with the existential crisis in questioning the existence of Father Christmas, especially when he meets said boyfriend.

 While all this is going on Will (Taran Killam) has to hide that he’s an amazing gift giver so his daughter Sophie (Marlow Barkley) can have a more flattering image of her neglectful, absentee mother. In a surprising and humanizing turn of events, Douglas (Brad Garrett) tries to help Poppy get through her depression and actually connecting on a personal level.

I think the funniest and sweetest moments throughout the entire episode feature Miggy (Jake Choi) and his absolute love of Santa Claus and having the secular Christmas spirit. Even Poppy recognizes how off things are in celebrating Jesus’ birthday but still in a humorous way, which wasn’t disrespectful to the faithful who celebrate the religious aspect of the holiday.

ABC has a way of capturing all aspects of the holidays while still being inclusive and that is definitely some Disney magic.

Single Parents airs Wednesdays at 9:30 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.

Summary

A great episode that balances the secular and religious aspects of Christmas.
