One nice thing about working from/staying home is that we now have the ability to binge watch all the series we never had the time for.
You can have Netflix playing in the background of work, chores, or even right in front of you as you lay on the couch – just because you can. If you feel like you’re running out of things to watch, fear not!
Make yourself a drink (check out our last post on some fun quarantine cocktails to make), cozy up on the couch, and check out these four hilarious shows on Netflix to watch all in one sitting (or not):
How to Sell Drugs Online (Fast)
A German comedy, this 6-episode series follows Moritz Zimmerman, a nerdy sweetheart as he starts selling drugs to get his girlfriend back – seriously. By utilizing social media and his genius best friend's brain, we’re able to follow him on an insane ride through Rinslen, Germany as he rediscovers friendship, love, and the wild, wild world of MDMA.
Who doesn’t love a show that brings us back to our good ol’ high school days? Set in England, The Inbetweeners follows four painfully awkward friends as they navigate through bullies, hot girls, overly enthusiastic parents, and their own filthy teenage mindsets. This series is insanely raunchy, probably not safe for work, and the episodes are the perfect length: not too short, not almost an hour. The bad part? It’s only three seasons long :(
Apparently, I have a thing for European TV shows. Sex Education also follows the awkward and insecure Otis Milburn, who takes on the secret role of “sex advice-giver” for his peers. His mom is a professional sex counselor, so while he knows a thing or two, there’s far more that he has no idea about that he has no choice but to learn about now. What’s cool about Sex Education is that we follow not only Otis’ story, but his best friend Eric’s time with being more open about his sexuality, his love interest Maeve’s life at home, and even the school bully Adam’s time as a misunderstood kid who is afraid to show his true colors. The humor is great and I just love catching onto British lingo. I’m proper excited that this show’s 3rd season is already on its way!
Set in Toronto, Workin’ Moms shares the story of four on-the-go, hilariously big personality women who juggle motherhood, their careers, family, social life, and their own personal goals. The show is split up into four seasons (the fourth season just released) and you'll find yourself rooting for all of them at some point. The show is very modern and takes subtle stabs at the unrealistic expectations of mothers (and women in general) in today’s society, all while being gut-wrenchingly funny.
Sometimes, a show doesn't need to be anything more than simply a laugh & a distraction.
If you've been in the mood to relax and let out a laugh, nothing's better than a good ol' show (especially a show you can binge watch in one sitting!). Allow yourself to have some time to enjoy yourself! During the pandemic, we should all be taking the time to simply do nothing.
