Grab your delicious Thanksgiving leftovers, and plant yourself on the couch.
Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life
This is quite possibly the most anticipated post-Thanksgiving Day release this year. Netflix is releasing all four 90-minute episodes of the Gilmore Girls revival on November 25, so make some coffee, gather your leftovers, and settle in for a six-hour reunion with your favorite folks in Stars Hollow.
Shameless is pretty much the anti-Gilmore Girls. The show takes place in urban Chicago and centers around the incredibly dysfunctional Gallagher family. Just when you think these beautifully flawed characters couldn’t possibly find worse choices to make or sink past their latest rock bottom, they somehow always manage it. Why is it the perfect post-Thanksgiving binge? Well, for one thing, no matter how awkward or heated your family dinner will get, the Gallaghers will definitely make your family feel like a Norman Rockwell painting.
Love it or hate it, this movie is a classic holiday film that’s not really about the holiday itself. It’s just a giant, feel-good romantic comedy packed with every rom-com trope you can imagine and for that we are grateful, actually. Plus, there’s that part where Hugh Grant dances around. We love that part.

Soul Food is not a holiday-themed movie, and yet it speaks to all of the things we cherish about the holidays. It’s about family, food, and the ties that bind us all, through the best and worst of times.
