Hidden Netflix gems to binge-watch while self-distancing

Every government from around the world and celebrities alike have been preaching self-distancing to avoid the further spread of the COVID-19 virus and Netflix is one of the best tools that people can use to administer this protocol. We have listed down some hidden gems on Netflix for you to binge-watch while waiting for things to cool down.

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend

Rebecca Bunch is a successful New York real-estate lawyer who worked for a top law firm until she drops everything and moves to West Covina to follow his ex-boyfriend when she was younger. Theater kids will love the show, it’s really funny and has some of the sultriest songs that you’ll ever hear in any stage production. The show also portrays mental health quite accurately which is a huge plus.

Lady Dynamite

Lady Dynamite is an unconventional comedy that stars comedian Maria Bamford as a fictionalized version of herself who tries to save her career after undergoing treatment for her bipolar disorder. The series follows different points and facets of an actor/comedian’s life.

Kim’s Convenience

Kim’s Convenience is akin to the flavor that Schitt’s Creek has. The show revolves around a Korean-Canadian family who runs their own convenience store and their misadventures. The show has the conventional immigrant story of parents wanting their children to have a better life in a different country dosed in comedic hilarity.


Amy finds out that she has the ability to see demons but tries her best to hide it from everybody she knows. She pairs up with Raquel, a socially-awkward girl who has the same powers Amy has to fend off demonic hellspawn in comedic fashion. If you loved Misfits, you’ll probably love Crazyhead too.


This show is a bit old but it stars Matt LeBlanc and if Joey isn’t your cup of tea, this show might be. This meta show sees LeBlanc play a fictionalized version of himself being offered a part in a sitcom by a British couple who moved to Los Angeles to recreate a hit British television show. Not sold? Well, some of his Friends co-stars appear in cameos, need I say more?


What do you get if you try and mix Pretty Little Liars and Gossip Girl? Elite is a Spanish Netflix Original that will take you on a wild ride that will leave you wanting more than just the three seasons it has. If you fancy teen drama shows, then check Elite out.
