Binge Watch These Thanksgiving Episodes This Year

It’s true that Thanksgiving looks different for everyone, but everyone has a few thanksgiving routine staples. What are those? Good food, comfortable outfits, partying, and movies/ shows. However, it can be hard to find the best thanksgiving shows or movies. To help you out, we’ve listed some of the best Thanksgiving episodes that you can stream this year.

When it comes to holiday episodes, the most popular ones feature Christmas or Halloween. As a result, a lot of people tend to just watch Christmas movies or shows at thanksgiving dinners to enjoy the festive season. The good news is, many TV shows deserve recognition for the amazing Thanksgiving episodes they have given us. Oh, you’re bored of watching Friends? Let’s have a look at some other binge-worthy thanksgiving episodes.

1.    That 70s Show– Episode 9 of Season 1

The episode is titled ‘Thanksgiving’ and will leave you in awe of how good it is. Moreover, it is noticeable that the episode is part of the very first season. This is great because the first few seasons of ‘That 70s Show’ are special in the sense that the group has just started to grow up and has yet to face the world of grown-up-related problems.

You are going to find this episode very interesting as Laurie creates a weird scenario when she brings her friend Jenny over for thanksgiving dinner. Jenny happens to be really attractive and puts Eric and Donna in a tailspin. What’s more? They all forgot to pick grandma up for dinner!

2.    Fresh Prince of Bel-Air– Episode 11 of Season 1

We agree that the show does not do much for your Thanksgiving but don’t we all love the show? It’s the best thing to make everyone laugh and giggle on cold winter days. Season 1, Episode 11, is titled ‘Talking Turkey’ and is a big one because we get to meet Will’s mom. Isn’t that interesting?

It should be no surprise that once Will’s momma shows up for dinner, it causes quite a scene. While the show is not known for its thanksgiving episode, you will love it. She is frustrated to see the kids not doing anything big to help out during the holidays. As a result, Aunt Viv decides to get all the kids to cook dinner in order to prove that her kids are not spoiled.

3.    New Girl– Episode 8 of Season 2

The eighth episode of the second season of New Girl is titled ‘Parents,’ but how does it make up our list of best Thanksgiving episodes? It’s an incredible holiday episode choice because Jess, who’s awkward enough as it is, has her divorced parents coming over.

What actually happens is that both of Jess’ parents unexpectedly show up for thanksgiving dinner at the same time. While this is funny enough, Jess decides to get them back together only for it not to work out. But in the midst of all this, Nick and Bob sharing theories is the hilarious part.


The above mentioned are our top three thanksgiving episodes apart from ones from ‘Friends’ and other famous TV shows. Anyhow, below is a list of other thanksgiving episodes that are just as good.

  • Gilmore Girls: S3, E9
  • Grey’s Anatomy: S2, E9
  • It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia: S9, E10
