These are my top five shows that you might enjoy watching during quarantine to help with the boredom. 

1. Stranger Things

This is a show that you probably have heard of before by beloved fans, but if you haven’t, it’s about this mother named Joyce (Winona Rider), whose 12-year-old son, Will (Noah Schnapp), goes missing one night. She then decides to launch an investigation with the help of Hopper (David Harbor), a local sheriff. Will’s friends, Mike (Finn Wolfhard), Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo), and Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin) also try to solve his disappearance with the help of a mysterious young girl who has telekinesis powers named Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown). This show is great if you like mysteries and sci-fi shows. 

2. The Good Place

This comedy-sitcom centers around this woman named Elenor (Kristen Bell) who is sent to the afterlife. She is then greeted by the owner of the neighborhood, Micheal (Ted Danson), who tells her that she has made it to “the good place”. She figures out that she has been brought there by accident. She then tells her friend Chidi (William Jackson Harper), who agrees to help her cover up her secret from her neighbors Tehani (Jameela Jamil) and Jason (Manny Jacinto) by teaching her how to be a better person. The show is filled with comedy and surprising plot twists that will shock you and make you want to watch more. 

3. Dead to Me 

This dark comedy is about a woman named Jen (Christina Applegate), whose husband has recently passed away. To cope with his death, she goes to this support system and meets this lady named Judy (Linda Cardellini), who has also lost a loved one. They soon become friends and try to help each other out. However, Judy has a surprising secret that she is hiding from her that might just ruin their relationship. It’s filled with drama, humor, and mysteriousness that is worth binge-watching. 

4. Glee 

This American musical teen-drama is centered around this group of musically talented high schoolers who come from different backgrounds but are soon brought together to form a glee club. All while dealing with teenage drama and building new relationships. This is a perfect show for anyone who loves or is involved in choir/musical theater while still wanting to see some drama. 

5. Anne with an E

The Canadian television series is based on the novel “Anne of Green Gables,” by Lucy Montgomery. The series takes place in the late 1800s and It’s a coming-of-age story about a 13-year-old orphan girl named Anne (Amybeth McNulty), who is sent to live with siblings Marilla (Geraldine James) and Mathew (R.H. Thomson). Anne quickly changes their lives for the better while meeting new people and adapting to her new life. This is a feel-good show and it’s enjoyable to watch with family and friends.
