We watch a lot of heavy TV shows, this summer we binged on Chernobyl and When They See Us. Regular shows in our rotation are things like Criminal Minds. To lighten things up, we like to mix in some Sitcoms but we are now running out of things to watch on Netflix or Hulu.
We have watched and loved 30 Rock and Parks and Rec. We are watching Angie Tribeca and Community now and they are ok, not great but not bad either. But we only have a few episodes left of each of them and need something else to watch.


What are your favorite Sitcoms? Are they on a streaming service? Thanks!!!

We watched a few episodes of Grace and Frankie when it first came out and it didn't grab us. Loved Kimmy Schmidt, and The Good Place-- we are waiting for the next season to be available.


Have any of you heard anything about "What We Do in the Shadows" on Hulu? I am seeing a bunch of people online saying it is very funny but that -- and that is it about vampire roommates is all I know.

If you have Prime streaming, I highly recommend Psych. On Netflix, the One Day at a Time redo is really good. Alas, it was cancelled after season 3. (CBS All Access wants to save it, so I’m hoping that still happens.)

How about Schitt's Creek? It's not like the ones you mentioned but I think its pretty entertaining.

if you want something to laugh: The middle or Modern family
I feel I watched all on netflix and always on the search for a good serie. So I start with Blacklist, because it always showed up when I searched. So I gave it a try: and you can´t stop...wow never saw a serie with so much tension, beside How to get away with murder.

Please keep the ideas coming, we are at a loss every night trying to find something new.

I love Psych! We watched when it was on Netflix, then it disappeared. Nice to know it is on Amazon:)
We also watched Schitt's Creek and loved it until it became too over the top for us. They became caricatures of caricatures IMHO- so we stopped watching when it annoyed us more than made us laugh.


We haven't watched the Middle or Modern Family- I will have to add themto the list, Thanks

I'm currently binging Designated Survivor. It's got an insane amount of episodes.

I can totally see that happening.

After my ankle surgery, I was stuck in bed, off of my feet for weeks and I binged that. Maybe it is just me, watching too much all at once, but it started out so darn good, then it got boring. I guess halfway through the third season, I gacveup. Although, it could be that by the third season, my ankle was better and I was able to walk again LOL


BTW- Gary and I watched the first episode of "What We Do in the Shadows" last night. It is wacky, but I laughed out loud a lot. It is so over the top. If you have watched ... oh darn, what is the name?? It is a Vikings spoof that is on Netflix... it reminds me of a vampire version of that.

We watched the original What we do in shadows and a couple of episodes of the new one. Pretty funny but I have to take it in smaller doses. No binging that for me.


We did start watching the spoof Viking show, but didn't finish it. I might have to check it out again.

:nod:
Same here, they are good one at a time, same with Angie Tribeca. The brain needs to reset itself or the suspension of belief aspect is totally thrown off. :p

We finished watching Season One a couple of days ago-- OMG- ridiculously funny! Gary and I got DD hooked and then she got her BF hooked on it. The three of us started to rewatch again with my son since he didn't watch it the first time around. After 1-2 episodes we all end up talking in Nandor's accent too. Highly recommend!
