Friends is famous for its incredibly awesome Thanksgiving episodes, perhaps more so than any other sitcom. The show set a new standard with its 1998 episode, "The One With All the Thanksgivings." Like the title suggests, we get to see flashbacks of all the friends' worst Thanksgivings of all time, from Joey getting a turkey stuck on his head to Chandler losing his precious pinky toe. This episode definitely remains one of the best in the show's entire 10-season run.

Thanksgiving is known to bring out the best and worst in families. While it undeniably reminds us to appreciate our loved ones more, it also tends to initiate a bevy of emotions and squabbles. One minute you're laughing with your relatives, and the next minute you're fighting with your mother-in-law about the best way to prepare sweet potatoes. If there's any medium of entertainment that truly captures all the highs and lows of this particular holiday, it's television. For the past several decades, TV shows have been known to feature Thanksgiving-themed episodes that consistently hit the nail on the head. Whether the silver screen characters are reminding us to be more thankful or making us laugh with their over-the-top familial drama, we can always find something to relate to in these shows (except, hopefully, getting a turkey stuck on your head). To help you celebrate Turkey Day this year - and to remind you that your family isn't that bad - take a look at 8 of the best Thanksgiving TV episodes ever. Let us know if we missed any of your favorites! -By Caitlin Morton
