The kids are finally asleep and now you have time to yourself. If you are anything like me, you eventually turn on the tv and start scrolling. But so often, I never stop scrolling — because I never know what to watch. And then when I finally do find something, I fall asleep minutes later.
I asked our readers what they have watched (and loved) lately – so that the next time you have a chance to unwind, you can watch something that’s tried and true!
My favorite series that I have watched:
Atypical (Netflix) Comedy/Drama
Big Little Lies (HBO) Drama
*I subscribed to HBO just for this… and it was worth every penny. This is still a favorite!
Big Sky (Hulu) Drama
Dead to Me (Netflix) Comedy
Friends from College (Netflix) Comedy
*You’ll wonder why there aren’t more seasons…!
Grace & Frankie (Netflix) Comedy
*Loved, loved, loved this show and cast!
I’m Sorry (Netflix) Comedy/Sitcom
*Unexpectedly raunchy in parts — but light-hearted and funny.
Little Fires Everywhere (Hulu) Drama
*Kerry Washington and Reese Witherspoon are everything!
Ozark (Netflix) Drama
Schitt’s Creek (Netflix) Comedy/Sitcom
*Short episodes and this show totally fills my cup.
Ted Lasso (Apple TV) Comedy/Sitcom
*Might be the most ‘feel-good’ show I have watched in ages!
The Morning Show (Apple TV) Drama
*The reason I subscribed to Apple TV… patiently waiting for season 2!
The Undoing (HBO) Drama
*I watched the entire series in a weekend – it’s THAT GOOD.
Virgin River (Netflix) Drama
What/If (Netflix) Thriller
Yellowstone (Peacock) Drama
You (Netflix) Thriller
These are all mindless and movies in which I watched the entire show. There are plenty of movies that I start, but never finish… and these held my attention til the end for one reason or another! When I look for movies, I look for cheesy or funny (so keep that in mind when taking my advice!).
