10 Of The Best Television Episodes To Watch This Halloween
Jett's TV

I love dressing up and going out for Halloween but growing up, I lived in a rural area and my house never had any trick-or-treaters stop by. Nevertheless, my mom always bought a bag of candy just in case. And so started the tradition of watching all of our favorite Halloween television episodes and eating a bag of candy.

In case you aren't the social butterfly of the year, here's a list of 10 of the best Halloween television episodes from different series to watch while enjoying with your bag of candy.

1. The Suite Life of Zack and Cody "The Ghost in Suite 613" S1 Ep.19

This episode is one of the most epic Halloween episodes ever. I don't care that I am now 22 years old and this show hasn't existed for the past eight years; this will always set the standard for classic Halloween fun.

2. That '70s Show "Halloween" S2 Ep.5

Not only is That '70s Show one of the funniest shows in general, but it also had a knack for satirically poking fun at mainstream media. This Halloween episode rips off the most famous scenes from big-name movies like Psycho using the crazy antics of the characters we love.

3. Glee "The Rocky Horror Glee Show" S2 Ep.5

Glee isn't really a scary show, and the producers didn't necessarily try to make this a scary episode; instead, they show off one of pop culture's most famous and renowned musicals that makes Halloween fun and exciting. And Glee does it perfect contemporary justice.

4. American Horror Story "Halloween Part 1" S1 Ep.4

American Horror Story could really be considered an entire Halloween series. That said, this episode packs in the creepy, dead people at your door cliche for a chill that will run all the way down your spine.

5. Gossip Girl "How to Succeed in Bassness" S3 Ep.7

This episode will satisfy all of your costumey, mysterious desires while still giving you the scheming and deceit of upper east side teenagers. Backstabbing is rampant, although for this series' Halloween episode, thankfully, there isn't any real stabbing.

6. Pretty Little Liars "This is a Dark Ride" S3 Ep.13

Pretty Little Liars also holds an air of Halloween and creep through the entire year, but this Halloween episode especially gives you goosebumps. From presumed dead characters and being trapped on a train to costumes galore and a special appearance by Adam Lambert in all his gothic glory, the only thing you should be scared of is missing out on this great episode!

7. King of Queens "Ticker Treat" S4 Ep.6

King of Queens puts Halloween back into the light-hearted and funny spirit with a hilarious battle for Halloween between Arthur and Doug that all begins with a pumpkin.

8. The Big Bang Theory "The Holographic Excitation" S6 Ep.5

The Big Bang Theory is one of the most fun shows to watch that is still on the air, and while the characters dress up on many occasions throughout the series, the Halloween episodes turn it up a notch.

9. Brooklyn Nine-Nine "Halloween" S1 Ep.6

This was the first episode of Brooklyn Nine-Nine I actually enjoyed. There is something just wonderful about an entire precinct of officers competing to steal a medal in full costume while the one person that hates Halloween has to dress up for a case. The characters definitely make this episode enjoyable.

10. The Office "Halloween" S2 Ep.5

As you probably already know, The Office is one of the funniest television shows of all time, mostly because of how cringe-worthy Michael is and this Halloween themed episode is no exception.

So, grab some candy and the remote and sit back for hours of Halloween entertainment that doesn't require an itchy costume, sticky fake blood, gaudy make-up or wearing pants--and start a new tradition right in your own home!

Your Social Activism May Actually Benefit From A Cleansing Social Media Detox

In the craziest year of our lives, sometimes there's value in taking a break.

We are living through, unequivocally, one of the most dangerous, unstable, chaotic periods of any of our lives. From COVID-19 to crises of police brutality to the mass exploitation of the poor by mega-corporations, the world outside seems to be looking more dystopic every day. What can be done about it? For many, activism involves heavily posting on social media to keep others aware. However, this comes with a net negative cost — increased levels of anxiety, depression, and hopelessness about the state of the world. Why might this be? After all, in past eras activists have endured comparable and greater levels of abuse and relentless torment from oppressors. Why, now, are people getting so easily burnt out?

Reading is a relaxing activity that provides many benefits.

In honor of National Book Day, there are many great novels that you can read to mark this special holiday. Here are the best ones to check out.

5 Things You Need To Know Before You Watch 'Arrested Development' On Netflix

"Her?" Yes, she's an amazing show! (You'll get this joke after you watch the show).


"Arrested Development" is an award-winning sitcom that aired for three seasons on Fox beginning in 2003, and then was picked up by Netflix for a fourth season in 2013, and then again for a final season in 2018.

However, it seems to remain one of the world's most underrated and under-appreciated shows of all time. Although this article alone won't be enough to skyrocket the show to Netflix's top 10, I hope that it will open people's eyes to the value and quality of the show.

I have always felt left out because of how I look and who I am. I have always felt like the elephant in the room, literally. I have always been shamed for my size. For the longest time, I cared so much about what I wear and who I wore certain things in front of. I never wanted to wear shirts that would show a lot of my arm, located above my elbow. I wouldn't wear shorts that didn't go to the tip of my knees, at least. I never wore anything remotely tight, where you could see every curve, roll, or imperfection. I was so insecure about myself, and not many of my friends knew.

Being a pharmacy technician never held as many risks as it does now. Exposure too hazardous conditions were little to none, and garbing up was only conducted in IV compounding. But, now, in order to give nurses the medications they need to help their patients, they need us, pharmacy technicians.

I Asked My Boyfriend His Opinion On Liking Other Girls’ Pictures, And, Spoiler Alert, It's Cheating

"When you get into a relationship and you're in love, you have to realize that liking photos is for the single lifestyle."

Ladies, listen up. If you are in a relationship with a guy and he is liking other girls' pictures on social media, then it's a red flag. A man who can look at someone else and show interest by liking it means he doesn't care about your feelings AT ALL.

Celebrities Stealing Designs From Small Fashion Labels Is NOT A Good Look, And They Need To Pay Up

When larger, more established figures or brands steal from lesser-known independent creators, they are taking opportunities away from these creators while also profiting from someone else's work and claiming it as their own.

Megan Thee Stallion and Cardi B recently collaborated on their new single "WAP," with the music video also being released on Friday. Both Megan Thee Stallion and Cardi B posted photos of themselves on Instagram to celebrate the premiere of "WAP." An independent designer quickly noticed that the rappers' matching tops were copies of a top she had designed last year.

7 Books That Are NOT In The Young Adult Genre That Will Change Your Life

Young Adult isn't the only genre that exists, so here are seven books that any book lover wanting to try something new will love.

One of the most popular genres in literature that everyone has read at least one book from is Young Adult fiction. Now, I personally can say that, in the past, I have been one of those people that only read from the YA section of the bookstore.
While there is absolutely nothing wrong with just reading one genre, it's good sometimes to venture out of your reading comfort zone into the other book genres of the literary world.

In a previous article, I discussed the importance and power of words. The perfect example of this is literature and its impact on the world. Books have always played a crucial part in human lives, from how we are able to expand our knowledge to how we pass our time.
