During this quarantine, I have found myself watching more TV shows on Netflix this past month and a half. I wanted to share a few of the shows I have found comfort in watching!
girl meets world
I started watching this show after using the first episode as part of a lesson plan for school. When I was younger, I grew up watching Boy Meets World, so I had been meaning to watch Girl Meets World since it came out. This was exactly the show I needed during a stressful time. I loved everything about the characters: their development, support with each other, and personalities. Seriously, I used the first episode to show how secondary characters necessarily support the main character. THAT’S how good they are. I will say the love triangle gets a bit ridiculous towards the end, but the show gets better.
If you follow me on Twitter, then you definitely know just how quickly I fell in love with this show. I legitimately watched half a season a day for the past few weeks. I couldn’t get enough of the brilliant way the writers developed the romantic relationships over several seasons. Nick and Jess were my favorite couple, and the show wrecked me when they broke up. But I also cried several times with all the proposals and romantic gestures. Don’t get me wrong: the show is not a rom-com. It’s definitely a comedy-centered show.
this is us
This Is Us was the first show I caught up on while in quarantine. I was a season and a half behind from the last time I watched it. I started watching the show when it first premiered since I loved the premise and Mandy Moore with Milo Ventimiglia. Catching up wrecked me emotionally since the show makes me cry once an episode. I couldn’t believe just how powerful the latest season was for character development in the show. I definitely recommend this for anyone who is a writer simply due to the grace it approaches the complex plot lines.
This show is actually on Hulu, but I definitely recommend if you are looking for a moving and aesthetically-pleasing show. I am a third of the way through the show, and I am in love. The show brilliantly displays the difficulty of relationships and societal pressures. I literally fell in love with Marianne and Connell within two episodes. I may have cried, too.
never have I ever
I have only watched the first few episodes of this show, but I absolutely am in love with the characters. The way the show is approaching grief so far is raw. I can’t wait to dive into the show more over the next week.
Which shows have you watched during quarantine? Any shows you recommend rewatching? Let me know in the comments!
