20+ Things to Watch While You #StayHome

Bingeworthy TV Shows

Happy Endings

3 seasons, 57 episodes, 22 minutes per

This Chicago-set sitcom follows the intertwined lives of six young urbanites trying to learn the ropes of adulthood. Through breakups and whatever other curve-balls life throws them, the pals stick together (IMDb).

I started this in the middle of the first season after hearing it playing in the background. It was so hilarious, it drew me in immediately. If you like wacky sitcom antics, Happy Endings is for you.

Available (as of 3/28/20) on: Hulu (all episodes available), Amazon Prime ($14.99 per season)

Related shows: Friends, Seinfeld

Brooklyn Nine-Nine

7+ seasons, 144 episodes, 22 minutes per

Jake Peralta, an immature, but talented N.Y.P.D. detective in Brooklyn's 99th Precinct, comes into immediate conflict with his new commanding officer, the serious and stern Captain Ray Holt (IMDb).

Nothing much I can say here. The Nine-Nine speaks for itself.

Available (as of 3/28/20) on: Hulu (all episodes available), Amazon Prime ($19.99 per season)

The Voice

18+ seasons, 448 episodes, 1 hour per

Four famous musicians search for the best voices in America and will mentor these singers to become artists. America will decide which singer will be worthy of the grand prize (IMDb).

If you're like me and grew up watching American Idol, maybe even dressed as Kelly Clarkson one Halloween, then you'll love The Voice. It's got all the glitz and glamour of American Idol without the ruthless judges and bullying.

Available (as of 3/28/20) on: Hulu (one season available)

Related shows: American Idol, The Masked Singer

The Orville

3 seasons, 37 episodes, 44 minutes per

An exploratory ship from Earth faces intergalactic challenges 400 years in the future (IMDb).

That IMDb description doesn't do this series justice. With the science-fiction elements of Star Trek plus the quick wit of Seth McFarlane, this show will keep you entertained for sure.

Available (as of 3/28/20) on: Hulu (all episodes available), Amazon Prime ($19.99 per season, one season available)

The Good Place

4 seasons, 50 episodes, 22 minutes per

Four people and their otherworldly frienemy struggle in the afterlife to define what it means to be good (IMDb).

I started watching this on a whim while working one day. And I couldn't stop. I watched the whole series in a few days. The twists and turns will keep you guessing.

Available (as of 3/28/20) on: Hulu (one season available), Amazon Prime ($24.99 per season, all episodes available)

Related shows: Supernatural


11 seasons, 263 episodes, 22 minutes per

Dr. Frasier Crane moves back to his hometown of Seattle, where he lives with his father, and works as a radio psychiatrist (IMDb).

What can I say about Frasier that hasn't already been said? No, really. This show, its writing and character development is top-notch. Kelsey Grammer and David Hyde Pierce are two of the best on-screen brothers I've watched in some time.

Available (as of 3/28/20) on: Hulu (all episodes available), Amazon Prime ($14.99 per season, all episodes available)

The Great British Baking Show

11 seasons, 132 episodes, 1 hour per

Bakers attempt three challenges each week trying to impress the judges enough to go through to the next round and eventually are crowned Britain's best amateur baker (IMDb).

I'm watching The Great British Baking Show as I write this blog post. It's just absolutely scrummy.

Hell's Kitchen

19+ seasons, 296 episodes, 42 minutes per

World renowned chef Gordon Ramsay puts aspiring young chefs through rigorous cooking challenges and dinner services at his restaurant in Hollywood, "Hell's Kitchen" (IMDb).

The reason why I chose Hell's Kitchen is because there are a lifetime of episodes for you to watch, the drama is palpable, and watching talented people do their thing is one of my favorite reality show content.

Available (as of 3/28/20) on: Hulu (9 seasons available), Amazon Prime (17 seasons available)

Angie Tribeca

4 seasons, 40 episodes, 30 minutes per

Lone-wolf detective Angie Tribeca and a squad of committed LAPD detectives investigate the most serious cases, from the murder of a ventriloquist to a rash of baker suicides (IMDb).

I love me some "Don't call me Shirley" humor. Modeled after Police Squad, this modern take on a slapstick cop buddy comedy succeeds in sending my sides into orbit.

Available (as of 3/28/20) on: Hulu (all episodes available), Amazon Prime ($19.99 per season, all episodes available)

36 seasons, 8,130 episodes, 30 minutes per

TV Shows to Keep Up with

Locke & Key

1+ season, 10 episodes, 48 minutes per

After their father is murdered under mysterious circumstances, the three Locke siblings and their mother move into their ancestral home, Keyhouse, which they discover is full of magical keys that may be connected to their father's death (IMDb).

With its humble beginnings as a comic book, this visually-striking show reeled me in from episode 1.

LEGO Masters

1+ season, 10 episodes, 44 minutes per

Dr. Sleep

2 hours, 32 minutes

Years following the events of "The Shining," a now-adult Dan Torrance must protect a young girl with similar powers from a cult known as The True Knot, who prey on children with powers to remain immortal (IMDb).

Having read the book and seen both the movie and miniseries, Dr. Sleep was a great next chapter in the story. With modern CGI, you get swept away with the characters. I'll warn you, though, it gets emotional.

Available (as of 3/28/20) on: Amazon Prime ($12.99 buy, $4.99 rent)

Pet Sematary

1 hour, 41 minutes

Dr. Louis Creed and his wife, Rachel, relocate from Boston to rural Maine with their two young children. The couple soon discover a mysterious burial ground hidden deep in the woods near their new home (IMDb).

Another Stephen King classic, but this time it's a remake. While it stayed less loyal to the book than the original film, Pet Sematary had some great fake outs and minimal jump scares.

Available (as of 3/28/20) on: Hulu, Amazon Prime
