"A Deep-Fried Korean Thanksgiving," Gilmore Girls (Season 3, Episode 9)
The ever-whimsical Gilmore Girls meshes well with the holidays; stepping into the fictional world of Stars Hollow is like putting on a big, soft sweater. That’s exactly how “A Deep-Friend Korean Thanksgiving” feels: comfortable, safe, familiar. Rory and Lorelai split the holiday into four visits, first to the Kim’s, then to Luke’s, then Sookie’s, and eventually to Emily and Richard’s. Each visit is a little slice of small-town family life, with the different cuisines -- tofurkey at the Kim’s, a deep-fried turkey at Sookie’s -- such visits entail. Anyone who’s spent Thanksgiving frantically driving between households will relate. Like all the best Gilmore Girl episodes, this one leaves you with the warm and fuzzies.
