Sometimes you have a shitty day and all you want to do is snuggle up in a duvet with a cuppa and watch some comfort TV.
Here are a few TV shows I turn to when I need something familiar and comforting. Ideally it’s a show with a lot of seasons so if I’m feeling particularly low, I can mainline that shit and ignore the world for a bit.
It’s also quite satisfying to see how much crocheting you can get done in a season. I love to crochet or draw while I’m watching TV. It helps me feel creative and productive even though I’ve just been watching Netflix all day.
Anyway, this is just a quick post to share with you some of my go-to comfort TV shows.
Frasier – Smart, easy going and so funny.
Broad City – The television equivalent of an antidepressant. New season coming next month!
Community – One of the things I love about Community is its rewatchability factor, yes I made up a word. There’s always something new to catch despite numerous viewings.
King of the Hill– Another easy going show but so funny.
Black Books – I have a lot in common with Bernard Black and I’m OK with that.
Spaced – Classic TV. I’ve watched it so often that I know it inside and out but I still love it.
Poirot – If you don’t enjoy a cosy murder mystery are you even British? I love Poirot, I grew up watching it so it’s perfect comfort viewing.
I’m Alan Partridge – Another classic comedy that never fails to make me laugh. I quote Partridge on the regular.
Scream Queens – I love this show. The first season has some great nods to classic horror which was a nice surprise.
Green Wing – Surreal comedy that’s never been matched. Two words: Sue White.
I also love Rick and Morty, The Thick of It, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Peep Show, Atlanta, Inside No.9..the list goes on and on.
What are the shows you turn to after a long day? Do you binge watch whole seasons in a single sitting? Let me know what you’re watching at the moment..
