Volume 31



TV Shows for You to Quaran-Stream


If you’re tired of rewatching “The Office” or “Friends” for the 7th time, here are some great shows to binge in quarantine.

“Breaking Bad” (Netflix)

This series follows Walter White, a high school chemistry teacher diagnosed with lung cancer, who decides on a new career path and over time becomes the Southwest’s leading producer and distributor of crystal meth. That’s surprising? Well, the show gets even crazier with each twist, and I can’t seem to stop watching because I’m so eager to see what happens next.

“Game of Thrones” (HBO)

There are not enough words to describe how amazing “Game of Thrones” is. I laughed, I cried, and I screamed at my TV. Even with a hundred characters, you fall in love with all of them and become so invested in their stories. Please watch this show; I can firmly say that it is definitely the best thing ever on television.

“Mrs. America” (Hulu)

In this new show, Hulu follows both the women fighting for the ratification and eradication of the ERA. It’s very interesting to see the opposing side of this issue, and Cate Blanchett is spectacular as Phyllis Schlafley.

“Barry” (HBO)

This dark comedy is about an assassin who stumbles into a Los Angeles acting class and decides that he wants to stop killing people and become an actor. Bill Hader is utterly hilarious as Barry, and you will definitely get a laugh out of the absurd nature of this show. Personal growth story answers the question to everyone’s problems, “Why not just shoot him?”


The office of the president of the United States might be considered the most important in the world, but Veep portrays the chaotic, idiotic world of the vice president’s office. With the wittiest, devastating insults and brainless characters, aides of the Obama administration called Veep “more accurate than The West Wing.”

“The Mindy Project” (Hulu)

Impossible you say for Mindy Kaling to top her character of Kelly Kaphoor in The Office? Then I say it’s time you watched “The Mindy Project.” Mindy is a Manhattan OB/GYN, sharing her life and work with a great array of characters from her own office. The quick banter and funny jabs will keep you laughing and for sure keep you hearing the opening theme music in your head while you sleep.
