In a world where you can’t do much of anything but sit inside, everyone is searching for entertainment. Whether it’s tv shows, movies, podcasts, or audio books, everyone’s looking for recommendations. Here is a list of some of the things that have been getting me through quarantine.
FRIENDS – I could and will do a whole post dedicated to how much I love this show. I finally started it last year and I can not believe it look me so long. It was recently taken off Netflix but will be premiering on HBO Max at the end of May. You can also catch episodes everyday on TBS.
Gilmore Girls – Another show I never watched until this past week. And now that I’ve started it gives me all of the cozy fall vibes I’m looking for. Disclaimer: it makes me long for mornings in a cozy coffee shop, but for now homemade will have to do.
Will & Grace – Yet another show I never watched (are you sensing a theme?) but gives me all the 90s cozy vibes.
Currently on TV – Survivor, The Challenge, 90 Day Fiancé Before the 90 Days, Masked Singer, and The Voice are some of the shows that we are catching each week.
Honorable Mentions – Tiger King and Waco which are two series on Netflix that I highly recommend if you are looking for something you just can’t look away from. Also, Love Island UK which is all on Hulu. With almost 50 episodes a season you have plenty to binge.
A few of the movies that we have watched in Quarantine so far that I recommend are Peanut Butter Falcon ( the perfect feel good movie), Yesterday, Jumanji 2, and Blinded by The Light.
PODCASTS & AUDIO BOOKS
One of the podcasts that I have recently discovered and absolutely LOVE is the Be There in Five Podcast. They are long, nostalgic, and relatable. Perfect when you need a break from the tv. I also continue to love and listen to the Sunday Scaries Podcast which also has an aesthetic that I love.
As for audio books I am currently listening to Carrie Underwoods book Find Your Path, Cameron Diaz’s book The Body Book, and Harry Potter & The Prisoner of Azkaban.
Hope this gave you a little inspiration on what to watch in quarantine. The common themes are either coziness or pure entertainment and I think a balance of the two is exactly what you need during this time.
