If you’re one of those people who are currently stranded at home trying to figure out what to do with the abundance of free time you have at your disposal, fear not, as there are enough TV shows to last you a lifetime. This is the time when you can finally binge-watch all those cool and fun shows you never had the chance to catch due to work and various outside activities. Well, now is your time! From the latest fantasy TV hits like the Witcher and Game of Thrones to upbeat sitcoms like Marvellous Mrs. Maisel and The Good Place, I present you 12 best TV shows to binge-watch while you’re sitting at home.
Game of Thrones
Game of Thrones has everything – a mind-bending plot with numerous twists, love, drama, breathtaking battles, dragons, scary magical deadlings, and an extremely believable Medieval-esque setting that brings all the characters and their political games close to home. It’s just too relatable! But has enough fantasy elements to be highly entertaining. You will fall in love with characters like Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen who are trying to do the right thing, and will absolutely hate the other ones like Joffrey Baratheon who are the epitome of violence and sadism. In any case, you will not stay indifferent!
Buffy: The Vampire Slayer
There really is something special about the 90s vampire-fighting hit show that kept audiences glued to the screens while it aired. Buffy, a teenage schoolgirl, leads a normal life until her destiny catches up with her along with the new ‘Slayer’ title. With the help of a bunch of friends and one librarian she has to save the world, fight evil, and still do that homework like all normal kids. All the characters are fun to watch and the plot has enough twists to keep you entertained.
Marvellous Mrs. Maisel
Imagine a 50s wife living in New York with a picture-perfect family including a husband, trying to become a stand-up comic, a bunch of kids, and a rich house, until one day the husband cheats on her and she finds herself pouring her heart out on the stage in a stand-up show. Apparently, she’s brilliant at it! So good, in fact, that she decides to make a career of it. The show is full of great humor, ironic puns, and peculiar plot turns.
The Good Place
If you’ve ever wondered what’s one the other side, well, the Good Place might have an answer…Elleanor Shellstrop finds herself dead (which is not a very good thing), but in a kind of heaven (a very good thing). Her only problem is that some kind of mistake was made by the heavenly bureaucratic system and she hasn’t been all that good in her lifetime. Of course, she wants to conceal it, but becoming a good person is not that easy! This upbeat comedy will definitely put more than just one smile on your face.
