7 Halloween Episodes To Get You In The Spooky Spirit, And Where To Watch Them

Celebrate Halloween with these episodes from your favorite TV shows, all treats, no tricks!

7 Halloween Episodes To Get You In The Spooky Spirit, And Where To Watch Them

It's October, which means the leaves are turning, we are breaking out our warmer clothes, and most importantly: it is officially spooky season. For those who love a good old Netflix and Hulu binge, here are seven Halloween themed episodes brought to you by your favorite sitcoms to get you in the Halloween spirit.

"Friends" - The One With the Halloween Party

"Friends" is a cult classic, and what better way to kick off Spooky Season than with a Halloween themed episode? Whether you're attending a Halloween party or simply vegging out on the couch with some candy in hand, this is sure to be an enjoyable, light-hearted episode that embodies the fun with friends that you have during Halloween!

Find it on Netflix: Season 8, Episode 6.

"New Girl" - Halloween

"New Girl" is by far my favorite sitcom, so I had to include this one! For those who have been following the show for the years it has been out, this episode will be a major throwback, and you'll definitely enjoy looking back on the times where Schmidt was courting Cece. Along with Schmidt and Cece's banter, Jess is hired to be a zombie at a haunted house, and we follow Nick's love life (as per usual)!

Find it on Netflix: Season 2, Episode 6.

"The Office" - Halloween

Would it really be a complete list without "The Office"? Enjoy your favorite antics with a different take, a Halloween office party that many don't seem to enjoy due to the stress that someone may be fired, which brings out the traits of these beloved characters, including Jim and Pam's pranks on Dwight that make you laugh out loud!

Find it on Netflix: Season 5, Episode 2.

Bonus episodes: Costume Party (Season 7, Episode 6), Spooked (Season 8, Episode 5), Here Comes Treble (Season 9, Episode 5).

"Workaholics" - A TelAmerican Horror Story

Continuing with the office antics, but with a more... mature twist... the "Workaholics" guys take on a night in the supposedly haunted office, braving the ghost of a former employee. The episode begins with something many of us know all-too-well, pulling an all-nighter due to being spooked by a horror movie. This episode shows the more paranormal side of Halloween, with a bone-chilling plot, and a humorous, stoner twist.

Find it on Hulu: Season 3 Episode 12.

"Parks and Recreation" - Halloween Surprise

Continuing the business-Halloween blend, "Parks and Recreation" has it all: trick-or-treating, new business ideas, and Leslie battles with her ideas of her future. The dry humor of this show is sure to capture your attention and perfect for a lazy night pre-October 31st.

Find it on Netflix: Season 5, Episode 5.

"That '70s Show" - Too Old to Trick or Treat, Too Young to Die

Yet another cult classic, you can't forget "That '70s Show"! This show never fails to ensue chaos, and in this episode, there is no difference. This episode includes everything Halloween including crazy costumes (Fez being the highlight), a haunted house, and a hint of mystery.

Find it on Netflix: Season 3, Episode 4.

"Freaks and Geeks" - Tricks And Treats

Another personal favorite, "Freaks and Geeks" is a highly underrated sitcom with, sadly, only one season. However, the good news is, there is a Halloween special! This episode certainly does not disappoint, following the stereotypical teenage shenanigans that ensue during Halloween, DIY costumes, complete with the iconic bionic woman costume that Bill sports.

Find it on Netflix: Season 1, Episode 3.

With all of these themed episodes, your Halloween is sure to be a treat! Be sure to enjoy these with some snacks that may or may not include candy in bulk, popcorn, and other spooky treats.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Urban Intellectuals

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.

"Arthur's Perfect Christmas" Is The Perfect Holiday Special, Move Over Charlie Brown

Arthur Read is here to deliver the real meaning of Christmas.


As the holiday season draws nearer, many of us find ourselves drawn to the same old Rankin-Bass Christmas specials and the perennial favorite, "A Charlie Brown Christmas." However, I would like to suggest an overlooked alternative, "Arthur's Perfect Christmas." It is a heartfelt, funny, and surprisingly inclusive Christmas special that deserves more recognition.

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead

Everyone needs a day to themselves sometimes.

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead
Olivia DeLucia

Laid back and taking it easy — sometimes that is the motto we all need after a busy week. Sunday scaries? Yes, they are valid – but you know what else is? A Sunday full of self-love. A lazy Sunday spent doing what you feel needs to be done to ease into the next week. Self-Love Sundays are a guilty pleasure that isn't only essential for our mind, and body, but are also a surprisingly proactive way to devote the upcoming week with a clear mindset.

So, what is a more suitable way to dedicate your week's end than a beautifully, connected playlist to accompany your face masks and journaling? Cheers, to a Self-Love Sunday (and a playlist intertwined with it to match). (Please note: "Sunday Morning" isn't included in this list, due to the obvious, but feel free to blast it anyway, we know you want to).
