Although not as numerous as Christmas themed programs, there quite a few Thanksgiving specials and movies worth a look. Aside from some NFL football, Thanksgiving always makes me pull out some old favorites to watch.  There are two things I make time to watch every Thanksgiving. The first is a very special episode of WKRP and the second is Home for the Holidays. Here’s a little about them and some other Thanksgiving themed fun you might enjoy.

chuck-season-five-dvdThe final season of Chuck finds the Intersect in the head of Morgan Grimes (Joshua Gomez) and our super-CIA spies entering the private sector as Carmichael Industries. As Chuck (Zachary Levi) and Sarah (Yvonne Strahovski) enjoy married life, Casey (Adam Baldwin) gets a girlfriend (Carrie-Anne Moss) and goes to jail with Lester (Vik Sahay).

This year’s missions include a computer super-virus, the return of old foes Decker (Richard Burgi) and Shaw (Brandon Routh), and an even deadlier new one in Nicholas Quinn (Angus Macfadyen). We’ll also learn Sarah’s darkest secret and meet her mother (Cheryl Ladd), Chuck will briefly return to his hacker roots, and two members of the team not named Chuck will have adverse effects from the Intersect as the super-computer begins to melt their brains and alter their personalities. And in the series’ final arc Chuck finds himself at war with a wife who doesn’t recognize him and a vengeful former spy who wants the Intersect for himself.

If the second-to-last episode of Chuck spent a little too much time setting up all the pieces in anticipation of one final hour, the show’s finale delivers a jam-packed episode full of callbacks from the show’s earlier years, one last performance of Jeffster, the return of the Intersect to where it rightfully belongs, and a tearful farewell to the show’s fans who have fought to keep Chuck on the air every single season for five years.

He’s rebooted her back to the spy she was at the beginning of the series and set her sites on the man he tells her is responsible – Charles Bartowski.
