Fans of “The Simpsons” can agree that the annual Halloween episodes for the show are a must-watch. 2017 marks the 28th Treehouse of Horror special, and we couldn’t choose just one to highlight. This year, Treehouse of Horror XXVII, which spoofed “The Exorcist,” received excellent reviews.

The exaggerated and hilarious personalities of Pawnee’s parks and rec team don’t disappoint in this Halloween-themed episodeLeslie Knope (Amy Poehler) sets a stakeout to try and catch the pesky Greg Pikitis, a high school hooligan who defaces the park each Halloween, causing confrontation between the “arch-nemeses”.

“Friends”: “The One with the Halloween Party”

Ah, how could we not include a classic “Friends” episode in this list? We couldn’t let Chandler’s (Matthew Perry) pink bunny costume or Ross’ (David Schwimmer) infamous “Spud-nik” costume go unrecognized. We just wish we went trick-or-treating and got checks instead of candy!

Thinking back to classic Halloween episodes from our childhood, how could we forget the episode that shook us to our very core? When one of the suites at the Tipton Hotel is rumored to be haunted, the twins and the gang go check it out. We can’t help but remember how terrifying possessed Esteban was; it still gives us chills!

“Gossip Girl”: “How to Succeed in Bassness”

We can’t help but gawk at the incredibly well-dressed cast in every episode of “Gossip Girl,” which makes this Halloween-themed episode a stylish dream. Lily (Kelly Rutherford) is roped into Rufus(Matthew Settle) Halloween costume party tradition and the usual impossible drama of a “Gossip Girl” episode ensues, including a club opening, extravagant costumes and juicy subplots. Get your popcorn ready for Halloween, upper-east side style!
