While we’re all trying to stay healthy by social distancing and stay in our homes, here’s a list of my top recommendations of things to binge your way through – TV-show edition.
It should probably be said that I’m a sucker for sitcoms – they’re my favorite. If they were filmed before 2000, I like them even better. Even still, you have to break up the monotony every once and awhile with something a little more dramatic.
“Frasier” is available on Hulu
This is the show I’ve spent years telling my friends to watch. I can’t begin to imagine how many times I have re-watched this series – honestly, I’d rather not know – and it genuinely is my hands-down favorite show. Pour yourself a glass of sherry, and sit back as the snobbish jabs will have you in stitches.
“Schitt’s Creek” on Netflix
This one is so good that my roommate and I have quotes of it in our bathroom (and magnets on our fridge). While it’s not exactly family friendly, it’s one of the best shows I’ve seen in a while.
“Wings” on Hulu
Two brothers at odds with each other in a tiny airport chartering a plane to and from Nantucket? Yep, sounds good to me.
“Chicago Fire” seasons 1-8 are available to stream for free on IMDb, but you’ll have to watch a few commercials.
If you want a show that keeps giving, Chicago Fire is the one for you. When you’re done with it (or if you need a break), you can switch over to Chicago PD, Chicago Justice or Chicago Med, and still see surprise appearances from your favorite characters. Chicago Fire is the only one I watch, but I’ve been watching long enough to pick up some key character appearances from the other shows based in the Windy City.
“Grace and Frankie” on Netflix
Again, not even close to family friendly, but a great show about retired gal-pal roommates nonetheless.
Bonuses: “Top Chef” on Hulu, “Great British Baking Show” on Netflix, “West Wing” on Netflix, “Love is Blind” on Netflix and “The Tiger King” on Netflix. I would recommend “Lost,” but maybe now isn’t the best time to watch a series about being stranded; but for the brave of heart, you can find it on Hulu.
