Binge on these series to fulfill your need for entertainment while staying home.

At first glance, the story is of a happy-go-lucky woman, but the story slowly unfurls, revealing layers of the plot and character finally joining the ends together to make the whole story clear. Fleabag is not just a dark-comedy but a deeper glance into regret, guilt, sexuality, and depression. The show also features Sian Clifford

The series is based on the true story of how the Behavioral Science Unit of the FBI was formed. It follows an up and coming agent, along with a veteran of the security services and a professor of psychology, and how they gather data from various serial killers, often using controversial tactics. 

The addition of the fantasy element in the true story has also made for a show that will make you want to binge the two seasons together. 

8. BoJack Horseman

Considered by many as one of the greatest animated television series in history, BoJack Horseman has a cult following. 

In a world where animal-human species and humans live together, the protagonist is a human body with a man’s head formerly a star of the Horsin' Around sitcom but now a washed-up irrelevant actor living in his mansion. 

7. Friends 

Out of all the shows on earth, you have surely heard of this one, Friends is a must-watch TV show and even 10 seasons might not be enough by the time you finish the series. 

The main characters are a group of friends who face life as a group and are entangled in romance and friendship alike. 

A reunion was planned by the Friends cast, set around early May, but due to the recent pandemic, it may be delayed. 

6. Rick & Morty 

The main characters of this acclaimed show are mad scientist Rick Sanchez and his grandson Morty. The show depicts their adventures and misadventures while having rich undertones of sarcasm and morality.

The award-winning show has kept most of us here at Hollywood hobbit busy as we struggle to pass the time at home.

5. Brooklyn Nine-Nine

A show that came back from the dead and had a supporter like HH the Dalai Lama, there is something special about the comedy show with a star cast. It is in its seventh season in 2020 and has already been renewed for the eighth season.

4. Parks & Recreation

Amy Poehler’s comedy show made waves ever since its release and is also responsible for launching the career of Chris Pratt. 

The shoe is an excellent comedy and has iconic characters like Ron Swanson and mock the internal workings of government while still being a light-hearted comedy. 

3. How I Met Your Mother/ Modern Family/ The Big Bang Theory  

We placed this entry on the list because of its similar premise, but each of these shows is equally entertaining. While The Big Bang Theory and How I Met Your Mother follow similar plotlines as Friends, Modern Family is a unique take on the mockumentary style of the show. 

Each of the shows has a star cast and has won multiple awards. Binge-watching these shows will pass the time, just ask us we’ve spent hundreds of hours watching and re-watching these shows on a binge.

2. The Office UK & US 

The original Ricky Gervais show was a critical hit and started a new trend of comedy shows in the UK. Similarly, the US spinoff starring the legendary Steve Carell made waves in the US comedy. 

Gervais’ show had 2 seasons while the version across the pond lasted for 10 seasons. (The show spiritually ended when Carell left, but it still had more seasons). 

1. Breaking Bad 

This is not meth, but the series is as addictive as the drug. Walter White, portrayed by Bryan Cranston and Jesse Pinkman, depicted by Aaron Paul, takes you on a rollercoaster of emotions.
