10 Glee: Silly Love Songs

Remember Glee, the musical comedy-drama TV series that swept across America and had everyone feeling just a little bit better about life? The hit show had several holiday-themed episodes, but the heartfelt musical numbers in "Silly Love Songs" (season 2, episode 12) really put the cheese (and music) back in Valentine's Day.

Plot details aside, the epic song list included P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thing) by Michael Jackson, Silly Love Songs by Paul McCartney, Firework by Katy Perry, and Fat Bottomed Girls by Queen.

9 Jane the Virgin: Chapter Thirty-Three

Jane the Virgin is a satirical romantic comedy starring Gina Rodriguez as Jane Villanueva, a devout 23-year-old Latina virgin who becomes pregnant after an accidental artificial insemination by her gynecologist. How can a show with a premise like that NOT have an amazing Valentine's Day special? "Chapter Thirty-Three" (season 2, episode 11) is a particularly funny episode involving engagement rings, flashbacks, marriage proposals, and Jane's questionable dreams about Professor Chavez.

8 Gossip Girl: Crazy, Cupid Love

Gossip Girl revolves around the lives of privileged upper-class teens living in Manhattan's Upper East Side, so if any show is capable of having an epic Valentine's Day episode, it's this one. "Crazy, Cupid, Love" (season 5, episode 15) is filled with all kinds of juicy drama involving a Valentine's Day party, an uninvited guest, a matchmaker,  and an unsuspecting witness.

Only the 1% can throw a party like this, so put on your Snuggie and enjoy watching how the other half live.

7 Orange Is The New Black: You Also Have A Pizza

It's hard to believe that a maximum security prison and romance can mix, but Orange is the New Black proves that it's possible in season two's 6th episode called, "You Also Have A Pizza." The episode (obviously) features pizza, but also includes a glimpse into Poussey's back story, a potential romance behind bars, and talk of love and relationships both in and out of prison. Honestly, it's a landmark episode in terms of insight into certain characters as well as a reminder that love is all that matters, no matter where you find yourself.

6 Supernatural: My Bloody Valentine

There's a Valentine's Day TV special for everyone, even for those that hate the over-commercialized holiday with a deep passion. For those looking for a sadistic take on an otherwise cheesy holiday, check out Supernatural's "My Bloody Valentine" episode (season 5, episode 14).

In true Supernatural style, Cupid is nothing but a vicious murderer and it's up to Sam and Dean to stop him from killing every couple in sight. There's blood, guts, weapons, Castiel, and a little bit of romance (but not too much). Perfection.

5 Parks And Recreation: Galentine's Day

What single woman can't get behind the idea of "Galentine's Day," a term coined by Leslie Knope in the second season of Parks and Recreation (episode 16)? This special holiday falls on February 13, a day in which Leslie throws a party for all of the wonderful women in her life. There's still a touch of actual romance involving Leslie's mother and a former flame, not to mention a scene in which Leslie TOTALLY PREDICTS a future romance between Justin Theroux and Jennifer Aniston. Don't believe me? Give it a watch and see for yourself.

4 The Office: Valentine's Day

There are a couple of Valentine's Day themed episodes in The Office, but "Valentine's Day" (season 2, episode 16) is definitely the best. In this particular episode, Michael Scott visits the New York office and almost ruins Jan Levinson's career by spilling the beans about their relationship.

Back at the office, Dwight gives Angela a key to his home, Ryan turns Kelly down for a date, and Jim tells Pam "Happy Valentine's Day" as she's forced to watch him walk out the door without her. Sure, there's another Valentine's Day episode when Pam and Jim are together, but their mutual yearning for one another is even better.

3 Big Mouth: My Furry Valentine

WARNING: Do not watch this Big Mouth episode (or any episode) with your kids in the room, because it's nothing but pure (hilarious) filth. My Furry Valentine is the show's new Valentine's Day-themed double episode, and for those who thought it couldn't get raunchier, it just did. We've got Andrew trying (and failing) to woo Missy in a beret, Jessie having to make peace with her mom's new lesbian relationship, plenty of When Harry Met Sally references, Nick dealing with his changing body, and (of course) gratuitous amounts of pillow sex.

2 Friends: The One With The Candy Hearts

Let's throw it waaaay back to the first Valentine's Day episode of Friends, called "The One With The Candy Hearts" (season 1, episode 14). Released in 1995, this episode features a hot date for Ross, Joey Tribbiani acting as Cupid for Chandler (it doesn't go well), and Phoebe, Rachel, and Monica all burning mementos of their past boyfriends.

As all Friends fans know, nothing ever goes as planned, and the night is filled with a bunch of unexpected, comical disasters. The best part? This episode still resonates with viewers 24 years later. Iconic.
