TV shows you can totally switch off to

Chances are you are spending a lot more time indoors, whether that’s because classes and your other usual activities have been cancelled or you’re self isolating. Whatever the reason, it can be easy to get consumed by all the news and updates on social media. The thought of starting to binge watch a serious and hard-hitting series to fill up your time can also be stressful. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of feel good TV shows you can totally zone out to and escape the heavy news cycle for a while.

1. Love is Blind

If you haven’t watched this already, I would be telling you to watch it even if the virus wasn’t around. This show set social media ablaze with commentary and it’s not hard to see why. The show’s formula is that couples get engaged without ever seeing each other face to face, and we follow the journey to see if they last.

2. Ru Paul’s Drag Race

The new season of Drag Race has started and with weekly episodes dropping every week, you know there’s a lot of good content to come. If you manage to power through those latest episodes you have a backlog of 11 seasons to make your way through. Be prepared to immerse yourself in this beautiful world of glitz, glamour and SHADE.

3. Parks and Recreation

This show is a classic. If you missed it the first time round, you can catch all seasons on Amazon Prime TV. The all-star cast includes comedy legends from Amy Polher and Aziz Ansari to Chris Pratt and Aubrey Plaza. The short 30 min eps are equally heart-warming anf funny.

4. Sex education

This has been one of the most talked about shows in a while. This super smart drama comedy follows the life of socially awkward Otis whose mum happens to be a sex therapist, played by the amazing Gillian Anderson. It explores everything from LGBTQ+ relationships to discovering your identity at school. Relatable AF.

5. The Good Place

Earlier this year, The Good Place finished it’s fourth and final season which means you’ve got 53 episodes of pure fun and heart to make your way through. The stories are so fantastical and the situations the gang, who have all just arrived in the afterlife, get themselves into will provide all the laughs you’ll need, so get stuck in!
