The feature length finale of the Comedy Central series 'Nathan For You' takes an amazing melancholy turn, when Nathan decides to use the show's resources to find Bill Heath's (the Bill Gates impersonator from previous episodes) long lost love.

The Orville, Episode 9

In another somewhat dull episode of The Orville, all the crew members fall in love with each other.¬†This one was more focused on humor and relationship stuff than real adventure or thoughtful things.

Stranger Things: Season 2 episode 2

Happy Halloween! The pumpkin plague is spreading, and not just pumpkins, but trees and crops of all kinds are rotting and covered in slime. Some giant thing from the upside down is causing it to be sure. We get a flashback to the end of season 1 and see what happened to 11. The scenes …
