Ah, Thanksgiving. That holiday tailor-made for hot air balloon parades, watching football, being reunited with relatives and, most importantly, stretching one’s stomach to its absolute limit.

Or at least that’s the way most of them seem to go on TV… well, except for the times when they don’t. Sometimes, half the fun of a good Thanksgiving episode is watching all the chaos unfold. The family drama, the burned turkeys, the slaps (if you’re Marshall; not so much if you’re Barney). Unfortunately, much as in real life, chaos doesn’t always produce a tasty dinner.

Here are 7 TV Thanksgiving dinners from notable holiday episodes, along with our verdict on whether or not they’d be worth tasting.
