What do you get when you combine the magic of TV and Thanksgiving? A tantalizing experience.
Traditionally, most TV shows commemorate Turkey Day in the United States by cooking up very special episodes, which often include family jinks, culinary mayhem and, you guessed it, a sit-down dinner worthy of a Michelin star.
Take Friends, for example. The NBC comedy, which ran for 10 seasons between 1994 and 2004, had a Thanksgiving episode each season. That means viewers had 10 perfectly curated Thanksgiving meals by Friends‘ Accessories department. Still, one meal stood out among the rest. (For this answer, you’ll have to keep reading.)
Gilmore Girlsfeaturing Lawrence Graham and Alexis Bledel as the titular mother-daughter duo, has also had its fair share of holiday episodes. In fact, a season three Thanksgiving episode featured Lorelai and Rory attending not one, two, or three, but four festive parties. If that doesn’t make you hungry, we don’t know what will.
