Quarantine has been really boring, for me and for everyone. While I’m sure you might have watched some of these shows, here is the list of 10 of my favorite shows that I would recommend to almost anyone. I hope you find these shows enjoyable and entertaining.
The sitcom “friends” follows the lives of six young people over the age of 20 living in New York. Joey, Chandler, Monica, Ross, Rachel and Pheobe all have different but adorable personalities and an unbreakable friendship. What I love about the show is that every time I’m in a bad mood, it makes me happier. It’s a lively, fun and heartwarming show, an all-time favorite, extremely hilarious and in my opinion timeless. The comedic and somewhat relatable conversations between the characters are sure to have everyone laughing. “Friends” has a total of 10 seasons which can be streamed on Netflix.
2. The Vampire Diary
The Vampire Diaries is a teen drama based in Mystic Falls, Virginia, home of supernatural creatures, death, and danger. Stefan, the brooding vampire, and Damon, his reckless brother, are both in love with the same girl: Elena Gilbert. Over the seasons, the trio and their friends protect themselves and save their lives. The show is engaging and entertaining. There are 8 seasons and they can be streamed on Netflix. Associated shows: The Originals and Legs.
3. A talkative girl
Serena, Blair, Nate and Chuck live lives of unimaginable luxury on the Upper East Side. An anonymous user known to others as “Gossip Girl” tracks their social and personal lives, reporting it to the rest of New York. A poor boy from Brooklyn, Dan Humpfrey, and his sister collide with their world to make it more messy. Completely unrelated and slightly unrealistic, Gossip Girl is an entertaining and unique teen drama. It has 6 seasons which can be streamed on Netflix.
4. The right place
“The Good Place” is a comedic fantasy. Eleanor Shellstrop, the main character, is dead. She reaches The Good Place, i.e. the paradise created for highly ethical and moral people, only to realize that she was placed there by mistake. The alternative is the “Bad Place”, where one is tortured for eternity. We are introduced to wealthy socialite Tahani, her soulmate Jason, the philosopher Chidi, and The Good Place’s kind orchestrator, Michael. The show has 4 seasons, which can be streamed on Netflix.
Ryan Atwood, a boy from Chino who grew up on the “wrong side of the tracks”, is adopted by the Cohens after his mother abandons him and his brother ends up in jail. He continues to play an important role in the lives of Seth Cohen, the comic book fan with whom he shares a brotherly bond, Marissa Cooper, his love, and other wealthy high schoolers living in Orange County. The show has 4 seasons which can be streamed on Netflix.
7. Boy Meets World
“Boy Meets World” illustrates the daily events that take place in the life of a teenager, Cory Mathews. Tackling the issues faced by every teenager and having to live with three siblings, he is constantly in the company of his best (and wildly popular) friend, Shawn. This sitcom is realistic, therefore accessible to most people and is also very enjoyable to watch. The show has 7 seasons which can be streamed on Disney+.
8. The Big Bang Theory
The Big Bang Theory centers around a group of scientists who are both nerdy and lovable. The main character Sheldon, while brilliant in caliber, is extremely socially awkward, which makes the show very enjoyable and his conversations with the others hilarious. I recommend watching the show as it makes you feel good while giving you a bit more knowledge in the process. You can stream all 12 seasons on Netflix.
9. Anne with an E
“Anne with an e” is an adaptation of the book “Anne of Green Gables”, centered, of course, on Anne. She is an extremely insecure orphan with her red hair and freckles, adopted by an old couple – Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert. The show describes how she makes her way through the community, meets her best friend Diana, and creates memories she will never forget. This show, which is set in 1896, can be streamed on Netflix.
10. Joan the Virgin
Jane Villanueva, an extremely religious Hispanic Catholic, has decided to remain a virgin until marriage. She is accidentally artificially inseminated with the sperm of the extremely wealthy and handsome hotel owner, Rafael Solano, and is now pregnant. Jane finds herself in a love triangle and now unable to choose between her boyfriend, Michael, and the father of her child, Rafael. This American Telenovela has 5 seasons which you can stream on Netflix.
