I almost exclusively watch comedies. I’m sure I am missing out on a world of good TV, but I really enjoy laughing. Life can sometimes be full of disappointments and crappy situations; I just don’t have any interest in seeing that mirrored back to me when I’m trying to relax. That being said, some of the best comedy shows tackle harder subjects, too: depression, substance abuse, mental health, death.
There are a bazillion great comedy shows on Netflix so this list by no means covers everything, but if you’re in the mood to binge on something that makes you smile, here’s a good place to start.
