It finally feels like summer is here. The weather is getting hotter, school is ending, and have you seen the new Stranger Things trailer? With season 3 of Stranger Things being set during the summer, I thought about all the television shows that remind me of summer. Summer doesn’t necessarily play a big role in these particular episodes I included, but the episodes do give me summer vibes whenever I watch them which is all that matters.
Friends – The One At The Beach (3×25)
The gang spends a weekend at a beach house; in search of her father, Phoebe meets a family friend with links to her family’s past.
Friends – The One With The Jellyfish (4×01)
