Shows you Should Binge Instead of Leaving your House

Don’t leave your house this winter only to goutside into that covid-filled world! Instead, snuggle up and binge the shit out of these amazing shows. When will you ever have a pass to watch TV for 10 hours a day?

Happy Endings
Head back to the early 2010s and relive a time when things were much simpler. This show is hilarious and perfect in its simplicity and one that I had watched years ago. I was so happy to have found it on a streaming service so I could watch, again. Like Friends, but better.

New Girl
Get your Zoey Deschanel on with this adorable comedy. A woman moves into an apartment she found on Craigslist that comes with 3 male roommates, what could go wrong? I loved watching this years ago (can you sense a bit of a pattern with this list?) and was so happy I could binge all of the seasons on Netflix.
I relate strongly to Schmidt with just a little less doucheyness.

The IT Crowd
Who doesn’t love a good play on words? Perfectly British, this show is hilarious and ridiculous. Follow a woman who has no idea about technology as she manages the IT department in an office. You’ll recognize Chris O’Dowd from Bridesmaids and will stay for Richard Ayoade’s comforting adorableness.

The Nanny
This show brings back nostalgic feels and makes me feel comfortable and happy every time I watch it. Ah, the early ’90s, what a simpler time of hairspray, dieting, double standards, and right-up-to-your-nipples slacks on men. If you couldn’t handle Janice from Friends, you’re not going to be able to handle Fran Drescher’s voice. Is it completely cheesey at times? Absolutely. Is it cringe-worthy at times? Absolutely. Is it great entertainment that curiously leaves you wanting more? Abso-fucking-lutely.

Relive those incredibly awkward days of grade 7 and 8 with this hilarious show. If the show’s title doesn’t give you flashbacks to writing PEN15 on binders, then you may be too young (or old) for this show. Set in the early 2000s, Maya and Anna play 7th graders alongside castmates who are actually around the supposed age in the show, adding to the ridiculousness. Get ready to cringe while they realize masturbation can be fun, turn into ‘bad girls’ by smoking a cigarette, while damn near all the boys wear a t-shirt with an open button-up shirt making them irresistible to early 2000s pre-teens.

Big Mouth
Another coming-of-age show that is equally as cringe-worthy and oversteps so many lines, but done as a cartoon, so it’s okay, right? Nick Kroll is behind this masterpiece, so obviously it’s going to be completely fucked up. Hilarity around every corner, this is one show not to watch in public. My first time watching it I was on a plane, and I highly do not recommend doing so. You’ll literally laugh out loud, not your cute laugh, but your honking laugh, causing seatmates to turn and see a Hormone Monster talking to tiny, furry dicks. Yep.

A 40-something woman, Liza (played by Sutton Foster) divorces her husband and heads to The City to pursue her original career: publishing. Unfortunately, she’s been out of the game for a little too long and no one wants to hire someone so ‘old’ who hasn’t worked in 15 years and has no idea what social media is. Luckily, a sexy 26-year old mistakes her for a woman his own age at the local bar near her friend’s apartment and changes everything. Who ever got a fake ID made to be younger?

Witty, wonderful, and the perfect show to binge for hours. Hillary Duff, Liza’s co-worker and new friend (Kelsey Peters), reminds us all why we fell in love with her acting, and shows us her grown-up version.
