With COVID still on the loose, and presidential elections behind us, we need a minute to catch our breath and chill. Let’s face it, the situation will get worse before it gets better, but only if we keep forgetting about the quarantine rules. After months of working from home, you’re probably tired of the same four walls, and maybe you’re out of things to watch. And that’s where I come in!
So get a bottle of wine, a warm blanket, and start searching for these 9 stress-relieving TV shows!
1. Buffy the Vampire Slayer (and also Angel)
What can be more soothing than watching the Scooby Gang dust vampires, chop off demon heads, and prevent the end of the world every season? The answer is nothing. Directed by amazing Joss Whedon, these two shows have everything you need for a good time. Badass relatable protagonist? Check! Dark and broody vampire boyfriend? Double check! Witty banter and the best musical episode ever aired on TV? Yes, please!
2. The Office
It’s one of the funniest and, at the same time, cringiest shows you’ll ever see. For some reason, the cringe only amplifies the off-beat humor, which is rarely seen on TV. The Office is full of hilarious people constantly ad-libbing their lines, making their fellow co-stars break out in tears. I mean, seriously, name one bad line from Dwight or Michael!
3. Parks and Recreation
Similarly to the Office, Parks and Rec is a mockumentary of the highest caliber. However, this time it’s not about selling paper, as much as it is about saving parks and treatin’ yo’self! The three best things about P&R are Leslie’s unyielding resolve, Ron’s grumpy face, and the funky chemistry between Andy and April. The rest of the cast is just cherry on top!
