5 Binge-Worthy TV Shows To Ease Your Quarantine Blues

If you're a binge-watcher like me, there's a good chance that at this point in our national social distancing efforts you have watched (and possibly re-watched) all of your favorite shows on Netflix. I mean, there's not a lot else to do when you're trapped indoors for days at a time. If I don't have to get off the couch for anything other than snacks, I am not moving.

So really, there's no better time to hunker down and choose one of these binge-worthy shows to keep you company. Think of it as doing your due diligence. So grab a snack, a drink (gotta stay hydrated), and a comfy blanket and settle in to binge-watch one of these fun and funny shows.

1. Brooklyn Nine Nine


This show might still be running, but there are plenty of episodes to keep you watching for a few days. You'll laugh, cry, and fall in love with every single character, even Hitchcock. Okay, maybe that's a bit of a stretch, but every character on this show is gold. Plus who doesn't love cameos by Cheddar, Captain Holt's adorable corgi?

2. Schitt's Creek


"Schitt's Creek" has finally started to catch on in the states and of course, it's in its final season. I have to admit, the first season was a bit rough and I wasn't in love with it, but the first episode of season two had me hooked and I quickly caught up to real-time after that. The characters are a bit crazy and over the top but at its core, "Schitt's Creek" is about family. If you are missing yours right now, just pretend you're an adopted Rose for a few days. I mean, I'm sure we all feel a bit like David right now.

3. Bob's Burgers


Speaking of families, you could always spend some time with the best animated family, the Belchers. Even though we might all feel like Louise right now, this hilarious and heartwarming show will take your mind off the insane outside world for a few days. This show is also still running, but it's one that I never get tired of re-watching.

4. Malcolm in the Middle


"Malcolm in the Middle" might be a throwback show but it is still one of the funniest shows that has ever been on television. And, it's pretty heartwarming at times once you get past all the yelling. A few episodes of this series is guaranteed to make you feel way better about your (most likely not as dysfunctional) family, especially since you probably did not expect to be stuck indoors with them for the foreseeable future.

5. What's New, Scooby-Doo?


This is another MAJOR throwback, but if you're not excited that the entirety of "What's New, Scooby-Doo?" is on Netflix then we can't be friends. This show shaped many of our childhoods and it still stands the test of time. Plus if the whole show's lesson that the real monsters are just people isn't apropos for our current situation, I don't know what is.

This is not an easy time for anyone, but hopefully binge-watching one of these shows will brighten your week. Or days, because let's be honest, with not much else to do, binge-watching has become our main job.

Stay safe, stay inside, and binge-watch to your heart's content!

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe.

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

Love Lost

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.
