  • Community - Epidemiology

    Community has several Halloween episodes, but "Epidemiology" is not only one of the show's best holiday episodes but one of the most popular Halloween episodes in a sitcom ever. It's easy to see why, with everyone in the study group wearing plot-perfect costumes and a situation that grows increasingly wilder every moment while also referencing a horde of zombie movie moments.

    New Girl - Halloween

    A joy of Halloween episodes - especially those that originally aired right around Halloween - is how well a holiday of costumes and pretend counterbalances stories about feelings. How well each couple's costumes match (or don't) is a fun visual mirror in a particularly tumultuous episode of everyone getting more scared of the feelings they're catching than the haunted house Jess is working at.

    BoJack Horseman - Mr. Peanutbutter's Boos

    It's four Halloween sotries in one, easily making up for this being BoJack Horseman's first Halloween episode. Juxtaposing Halloween parties from 1993, 2004, 2009, and 2018, the story further weaves everyone's ever more intertwined history and pattern of choices while also giving the audience a core sample of Halloween costumes and cultural references over the past two decades.

    Lucifer - Monster

    TV shows that are already packed with monsters always know how to bring it for Halloween and Lucifer, back when it aired on Fox, is no different. A Halloween-themed wedding in a graveyard that ends in tears instead of vows and the titular Devil himself dealing with all-consuming guilt is balanced adorably with Chloe's daughter trick-or-treating.

    DC's Legends of Tomorrow - Phone Home

    Trying to save Ray after they've broken time, the Legends learn a lot more about their perma-positive friend, all while trying to track down a time-displaced baby Dominator in the year 1988. This is the Legends only Halloween episode from the series to make up for that it's somehow packed with even more nerdy inside jokes than average.

    We Bare Bears - Charlie's Halloween Thing

    When it isn't very easy to fit Halloween into a show, a popular alternative is to have the characters share scary stories. Both of the Charlie's stories in this episode will be familiar to folks who know their spooky stuff - like haunted dolls and were-creatures - but that doesn't make them any less adorably fun and just the right amount of safely scary additions to the family watchlist.

    • Season: 3
    • Episode Number: 29
