Quarantine Favorites: TV Shows

Looking for stuff to do, watch, or try while stuck at home?

Over the next few days,I'm sharing some of my Quarantine Favorites: yummy recipes, bingeable TV shows, addictive books, and other things I've recently discovered.

And today, it's TV shows!

Tiger King on Netflix feels like the current memeworthy show going around, and while it looks entertaining, I'm not interested in watching it. At least not yet. When I watch documentaries or reality shows, I gravitate towards comfy shows that don't stress me out too much. (See the first category below.)

Here are some of the shows I am watching, recently finished, or would always recommend to others. Most are on Netflix, but I noted Hulu, Amazon and HBO when needed. If you had to choose only one of each, I starred my *favorite* in each category. Which, for most of these, was super hard to do.

(And before I get flak for not watching everyone's favorite show, I also included some titles that are on my watchlist at the end!)
