Thanksgiving is finally here, giving us all reason to reflect on what we should truly be thankful for: a fantastic year for television.

Here are some recommendations for what to watch this thanksgiving weekend.
LOOKING FOR AN ESCAPE

WESTWORLD (HBO)

STRANGER THINGS (NETFLIX)

Stranger Things took the entire summer by storm and remains a must-watch of 2016.

THE GET DOWN (NETFLIX)

the get downNo one is going to lie to you here: The Get Down is a bit of a mess, which is a given considering Baz Luhrmann’s output. But this series, which explores the birth of hip-hop in late-‘70s New York City, gels quickly into a moving and meaningful look into the lives of kids of color right on the cutting edge of a massive cultural moment. By the time the finale rolls around, you’ll be hooked.

BLACK MIRROR (NETFLIX)

LOOKING FOR NEW FACES

INSECURE (HBO)

Insecure could be described as Girls with black women, but that would miss the point.

CRAZY EX-GIRLFRIEND (THE CW)

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is easily one of the best shows on television. It’s funny, it’s diverse, it has a lot to say about how problematic romantic comedy narratives are, and it’s a musical.

ATLANTA (FX)

Donald Glover has described his show Atlanta as “Twin Peaks with rappers,” and… he’s not wrong. In addition to it being a love letter to the black experience in America, it’s also unabashedly weird and surprising.

LUKE CAGE (NETFLIX)

Marvel’s latest show in its stable of superhero TV series, Luke Cage, has both stellar performances and a topical take on America today.

LOOKING TO LAUGH WHILE YOU CRY

BOJACK HORSEMAN (NETFLIX)

THE GOOD PLACE (HULU)

the good placeWhat if, after your death, you find yourself in paradise — only to learn that it was a clerical error that landed you there? And what if, it turns out, most people don’t get to see paradise at all? What do you do?

THIS IS US (HULU)

this is us

The show is full of flawed but basically good people finding struggling to get by and do right, even as they’re constantly being thrown curveballs like illness or the death of children.

SEARCH PARTY (TBS / AMAZON)

Millennials are jerks, but that doesn’t mean we can’t find the little moments where we’re forced to care about one another.
