Spoiler alert: these Halloween specials are a must watch.

Top 5 Halloween TV Specials

It's finally October!! That means fall break, Freeform's 31 days of Halloween, and television ha special Halloween episodes. Here are my top 5 favorite Halloween episodes in no particular order (actually ranking them would be impossible). There may be spoilers in the descriptions below.

1. Who's Afraid of Cory Wolf - Boy Meets World (season 2 ep 6)

I remember first watching this when I was watching Boy Meets World all the way through after I bought the box set. It is a good, fun episode where Cory believes he is turning into a werewolf and it gets as far as him isolating himself and practicing eating out of a dog bowl. I think it's a funny and cute throwback to the 90s.

2. Brooklyn 99 - HalloVeen (Season 5 episode 4)

This has to be one of my absolute favorite episodes of Brooklyn 99. Jake and Amy are such cute characters and the way he proposes is so cute in my opinion. As I'm writing this article, I kinda want to rewatch it. All of Brooklyn 99 has similar Halloween episodes based on a tradition in their workplace, but each year is unique and full of surprises.

3. New Girl - Halloween (Season 2 episode 6)

This episode is full of drama, but still gives the audience a good feeling of all the character's personalities, where some television shows make seasonal episodes in their own kind of bubble. My favorite couple on the show is Nick and Jess and this episode is a prime example of how great their friendship was (he goes into a haunted house even though he's terrified just because he needs to talk to Jess and accidentally injuring her due to him being scared).

4. How I Met Your Mother - The Stinson Missile Crisis (Season 7 episode 4)

My second favorite television show of all time is undoubtedly How I Met Your Mother. This episode in the latter half of the series brings up some themes that have been discussed in previous seasons, but as the gang gets older and Marshall and Lily begin working on building their family the dynamics start to change. A big part of this episode's plot is Ted becoming too involved in Lily's pregnancy (referring to the baby as "our baby", wearing "Team baby" shirts and signing the group up for birthing classes). The reason he is acting more strange than usual is that Marshall, Lily and Ted have always been a trio since college and now that is changing. It has been shown in previous episodes that the whole group is bad at dealing with change.

5. Boy Meets World - The Witches of Pennbrook (Season 5 episode 5)

The last, but definitely not least on the list is another Boy Meets World episode. This one has Candace Cameron-Bure from another well known 90s television show, Full House. I particularly enjoy this one because it has more spooky Halloween themes such as witches and black cats. The humor is spot on in my opinion and when I first watched this episode I had a hard time not laughing while trying to pay attention.

No Sex And Upstate New York

A modern-day reincarnation of Carrie Bradshaw's classic column


Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

To The Classes That Follow
Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.

Why Driving Drives Me Crazy

the highways are home


With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me? There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
