Spend This Thanksgiving With Your HBO Family 🦃

The HBO family includes a variety of characters, and this season is a perfect time to get to know them -- you may even recognize a few types from your own dinner table.
  1. The Overprotective Father: Tony Soprano, The Sopranos
    This is definitely the guy you want at the head of your table.
  2. The “Perfect” Housewife: Ruth Fisher, Six Feet Under
    Just don’t be surprised if she starts talking about intimacy over dinner.
  3. The Cantankerous Grandparent: Larry David, Curb Your Enthusiasm
    If you can’t find him, look in the den; chances are he’s there watching TV and ignoring the rest of you.
  4. The Geeky Older Brother: Dinesh, Silicon Valley
    At least you’ll have reliable tech support when your computer crashes.
  5. The Fun Aunt: Valerie Cherish, The Comeback
    She was probably the first relative to hand you a drink at one of these holidays.
  6. The Offensive Uncle: Neal Gamby, Vice Principals
    This guy will try to keep track of the kids — and say a few words you wish they hadn’t heard.
  7. The Nervous New Girlfriend: Issa Rae, Insecure
    She’s new to the family, and may spend a lot of time psyching herself up in the bathroom mirror, but you couldn’t imagine the group without her.
