The pandemic is upon us and everyone who is self-quarantining knows the struggle of making it through even a day. As it tends to get boring and the loneliness frustrates individuals. However, you should not rely on other people for entertainment when the most feasible option is well within your reach. Streaming movies and shows can help you get through these trying times. I have been doing it myself… The last couple of months were perhaps the only time when I exhausted my Cox Internet 30 Mbps package limit!
Here are some interesting suggestions on what to stream:
This rather intriguing docuseries on Netflix will encourage you to binge-watch it the first time you tune into it. Because you will learn all about the marvels as well as the mysteries regarding human infancy. Something that many of you would not know about. Premiering in February this year, Babies not just features over a dozen infants, but it also has some scientists and professors. The latter provide their expert opinions through the commentary. So, if you wish to discover more about the infants, then you should invest some time in watching Babies.
The Good Place
Another show worth watching on Netflix right now is A Good Place. Currently, three out of the total four seasons are available on Netflix. In case you are wondering what the show is about, it revolves around the theme of the afterlife. Relax. It is not a dark show. Instead, it is a sitcom. And you will relish watching how Eleanor (a deceased saleswoman) who spent a corrupt life makes it to heaven in the afterlife. Amazed at her fate, she makes all the necessary efforts to hide the truth about her life in the world so that she can stay in heaven forever.
Having won some of the most prestigious awards, Schitt’s Creek is one of the funniest comedy series available on Netflix right now. Enjoy watching a married couple as they go bankrupt with the only asset left to their name being the ugly town they call Schitt’s Creek. This Canadian production features all Canadian actors and premiered in 2015. Trust me when I say that you would binge-watch the 6 seasons of the show available on Netflix.
Dead to Me
It is a comedy series that premiered in 2019 and is three seasons old. However, Dead to Me includes dark humor. So, if you do not have a liking for that type of humor, you might as well avoid watching this series. Having said that, the show revolves around two women who meet each other during a therapy session. The show received positive reviews. Apart from that, it also earned Christina Applegate an Emmy Award nomination for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series.
Hollywood is a miniseries released in May 2020 during the quarantine period. And was an instant hit among the viewers. As the name suggests, the miniseries revolves around some aspiring filmmakers and actors. It is set in the post World War II era, and so is a rather interesting watch as you learn about the struggles of actors during that time. Apart from that, the unique storyline also gives you a break from the same old plots.
With an IMDb score of 8.4, The Americans is a spy thriller TV series available on Amazon Prime. The show is set during the cold war period. So, if you are a sucker for historical events, it would be a rather interesting way for you to learn more about the then conflicts between Washington FBI and KGB Rezidentura. Although the show aired between 2013 and 2018, it is still trending on Amazon Prime. So, get ready to get some history lessons during the course if 6 seasons of this show.
Stop Making Sense
You rarely come across a live concert documentary. And Stop Making Sense is part of those rare documentaries. So, if you are a Talking Heads (a prominent American rock band), then you will love this documentary. Even if you are not, you will still find yourself watching it with much interest. Shot throughout four nights, filmmaker Jonathan Demme filmed this documentary in 1983 when the band was touring to promote their then-new album Speaking in Tongues. It is also available on Amazon Prime.
Hope you enjoy watching these shows as much as I did. And you will love online streaming even more if your ISP provides as good customer service as my Cox Customer care. Nothing helps pass time during self-quarantine than this activity!
