Watch List: Thanksgiving and Family Gathering Films and TV shows

Thanksgiving, yet another mid-week holiday in November that brings families together for a big ol’ meal of turkey, heaps of carbs, bad football games, and the gateway to Christmas. Tim and Nelson compiled a watch list celebrating Thanksgiving. Since that list is quite not as overflowing as the other Fall holidays (Veterans Day and Christmas) they included movies and TV shows with family gatherings because what holiday does awkward, family drama like Thanksgiving?
