How I Met Your Mother | Season 3, Ep. 9 | “Slapsgiving”

Master of None | Season 2, Ep. 9 | "Thanksgiving”
While the first two episodes we've highlighted are funny, this Thanksgiving episode is sentimental and one of the best episodes of Master of None there has been. This episode dives into Denise's past, explores her relationship with her family, her coming to terms with her sexuality and features her coming out to her mother. This episode isn't even just about Thanksgiving and Thanksgiving's past, but is really about a black woman being able to identify her strength, sexuality and acceptance.

It's always an adventure with the It's Always Sunny gang, and this Thanksgiving episode is no different. Once their planned Thanksgiving meal falls apart, the gang decides to use the holiday to make amends with everyone they've had beef with in the past. It seems like a charming idea, but in usual It's Always Sunny fashion, the way these people go about squashing their beefs with people is gross, hilarious and entertaining.
