Netflix shows to binge-watch while doing self-quarantine (part 1)

So, I think it’s a universal consensus that this virus that’s ravaging our planet at the moment sucks right? And around the world governments have implemented lockdowns and self-quarantines and to not live our homes unless we really really need to. Well, I think this is the perfect time for the whole ‘Netflix and chill’ card to be played by all of us and we’re here to provide you a series of articles that will help you decide which shows you can binge and lose track of time and to not worry about our current situation.

Now, sit back, relax, grab a bag of chips (or a salad if that’s your thing) and a drink as we list down some Netflix shows you can go down the rabbit hole with.


One of the best crime dramas out there, Mindhunter takes place during the 1970s as two federal agents advance the field of criminal science via going down the rabbit hole into the minds of murderers. The shows focus on a series of killings in Atlanta, Georgia where dozens of adults and children were killed over a two-year period.

Grey’s Anatomy

At this point, everyone knows what Grey’s Anatomy is, and depending on your state of mind and how your brain is wired, I think this might be the perfect time to binge this medical drama. The show is still going strong, debuting in 2005 and still pumping out episodes after a decade and a half later which is a testament on how good this series is. After watching an episode you’ll be pining for more until you realize either COVID-19 is over and you desperately need a shower or the world has ended and you need to forage for food. Either way, this show is stellar.

Schitt’s Creek

Video store magnate Johnny Rose and his family are forced to leave their oblivious and pampered lifestyle when the business comes crashing down. Now they need to rebuild their empire from the ground up in the rural city limits of Schitt’s Creek, a town that they once made fun of.

Dead to Me

Dead to Me follows the friendship between Jen Harding played by Christina Applegate and Judy Hale played by Linda Cardellini. Jen is a real estate agent and a new widower who is trying to come to terms about her husband’s death in a hit-and-run incident.

Parks and Recreation

Parks and Recreation is a timeless sitcom that stands the test of time. The show concluded its NBC run after seven seasons but is still available in the streaming platform. The show follows Leslie Knope played by Amy Poehler on her quest to prove to people that the local government is good while her boss Ron Swanson played by Nick Offerman who doesn’t believe in the government and will go to drastic measures like hiring incompetent personnel to make their department as ineffective as possible. The show has a bit of a slow start but will get you hooked after a couple of episodes in.
