Our 5 Favorite Thanksgiving TV Episodes!

From happy families to dysfunctional friends and everything in between, TV has no shortage of great Thanksgiving-themed episodes worth being thankful for. We've rounded up 5 of our favorites for you to enjoy this month. Believe me you'll watch them more than once lol. You're welcome 😊

"Friends" Season 5 Episode 8:The One With All the Thanksgivings.” Out of all Friends Thanksgiving episodes, which one is the best? We have to go with the one where the gang relives their worst Thanksgivings. It combines some of the best elements of the show, plus there are turkeys on people’s heads.

"Modern Family" Season 3 Episode 9:Punkin Chunkin.” Even if this weren't a Thanksgiving episode, it would be worth watching for the fact that the Pritchetts are throwing pumpkins. Add that to Phil's manshake and you've got an instant holiday classic.
"Martin" Season 3 Episode 11:Feast or Famine.” On Thanksgiving, the guys compete against the girls to see which gender cooks the better bird. The competition brings disastrous results. This is a must see. Hilarious lol.

"The Big Bang Theory" Season 7 Episode 9:The Thanksgiving Decoupling.” The gang spend Thanksgiving at Mrs. Wolowitz's house. Howard tries to bond with his father-in-law, and a mistake from Penny's past comes back to haunt her.
"How I Met Your Mother" Season 3 Episode 9:Slapsgiving.” What's better than Thanksgiving? Why, Slapsgiving, of course! In this episode, Marshall renames the holiday in honor of his slap bet with Barney, and waiting to see that slap (and the subsequent musical number) was enough to get us through all the ex-tension between Ted and Robin.

"Eastsiders" Returns To Netflix For Fourth & Final Season

The fourth and final season of Kit Williamson’s Emmy-nominated LGBTQ series Eastsiders will be available on Netflix on December 1.

Thanks to a Kickstarter campaign that raised over $140,000 from fans, Eastsiders, a co-production with Wolfe Video, will be back with a fourth season that picks up with the Silver Lake gang one year later. Executive produced by Williamson and his husband John Halbach, who also star, the six-episode Season 4 tackles heavy, adult-world questions like how do two human beings make love last? What does commitment really look like in a long-term relationship? And what unique challenges does a “gay marriage” present?

Cal (Williamson) and Thom (Van Hansis) are back home from Season 3’s cross-country road trip, still a couple but wondering if they are really just best friends with benefits. Douglas (Willam Belli) and Quincy (Stephen Guarino) are engaged to be married, but with very different ideas about what a gay wedding should be. Hillary (Brianna Brown) and Ian (Halbach) are cohabiting peacefully; and Jeremy (Matthew McKelligon) and Derrick (Leith M. Burke) have taken a huge step in their relationship by fostering a child.
