Thanksgiving is one of the most underrated holidays. Sure, Halloween is fun because of the costumes and the candy. Christmas is great because everyone gets presents. But Thanksgiving (oh, sweet Thanksgiving) is about two of the greatest things – lounging around and eating. What fun is stuffing your belly in your most comfortable pair of sweatpants if you don’t have anything to watch? Netflix and Hulu have you covered this November.
1. Fuller House's "A Fuller Thanksgiving" (Netflix)
Those who grew up with Full House being a fixture in their household were excited when Netflix reprised the series as an original, featuring the Tanner family and friends all grown up. The nostalgia factor comes into play here. You’ll witness a Tanner family Thanksgiving with the next generation of Tanners – the grandchildren. If you’re looking for something wholesome and family friendly to bring everyone together after a huge meal, A Fuller Thanksgiving will give you everything you need.
2. The Thanksgiving Episodes of “Friends” (Netflix)
Friendsgiving is just as real as Thanksgiving. When your merry band of buddies comes together to share turkey and pie, create a playlist of the Thanksgiving episodes of the show Friends. Every single Thanksgiving episode was funny and different, and with so many seasons of the show, you’ll get enough episodes to fill up a whole binge watching block that all your besties will appreciate.
3. The Oath (Hulu)
The Oath is a black comedy that veers off the beaten path. If your family or friends aren’t typically the bunch to watch heartfelt or sappy holiday movies, The Oath is likely to resonate with them. The film centers on a couple attempting to navigate the holidays with their family in a politically dysphoric landscape. The comedic moments resonate perfectly, and the ending will leave you surprised.
4. Pilgrim (Hulu)
Pilgrim is a part of Hulu’s “In The Dark” series of originals. This is Thanksgiving horror at its finest. For lovers of the macabre and people who still haven’t had their spooky craving satisfied during the Halloween season, Pilgrim is sure to hit the mark. This anthology episode is the story of a woman who invites Pilgrim re-enactors to her Thanksgiving dinner. Much to her chagrin, the actors become a little too committed to their roles.
5. How the Grinch Stole Christmas (Netflix)
For some families, Christmas season begins the moment the Thanksgiving turkey is cut. If your family is the kind of family that puts up the Christmas tree on Thanksgiving, you’re likely to be at your happiest when indulging in family friendly Christmas classics. How The Grinch Stole Christmas is a timeless story that every member of the family – from the toddlers to the grandparents – will be able to enjoy to its core.
6. Nailed It (Netflix)
Much of Thanksgiving focuses around cooking – and so does Nailed It. If someone burned the pie or lost their wedding ring in the mashed potatoes, Nailed It is a great way to bring light and levity to the situation. This is a cooking competition show where every contestant was asked to participate specifically because they are so awful at cooking. Contestants replicate complicated instructions from the internet, usually for dessert foods, and the winner is the one whose end result is the least horrible. Nailed It goes great with a post-feast glass of bourbon shared with great company
Can’t Watch These Movies in Your Country?
Licensing rights are complicated. Unfortunately, Netflix and Hulu have to restrict parts of their library in certain regions of the world. If you don’t have access to the Thanksgiving movies and shows you’d like to stream, there’s always a workaround. By using a VPN router, you can make it appear as though you’re accessing the streaming sites from a country without those streaming library restrictions. It’s a quick and easy way to keep your family and friends entertained this holiday season.
