Sometimes you just need a long TV show to spend quality time with...
There are more TV shows being released right now than ever before. That’s mostly a good thing, as it gives us more choice, but it also means that we rarely have time to watch anything other than the most current, hyped, tweetable shows. Older shows that you missed the first time around or want to revisit mightn’t even get a look in –there simply is not time.
Yet, for the last few months (and probably the next few), many of us have nothing but time, with no idea when our lives will fully go back to normal. That seemingly never-ending abyss is daunting, though, and it’s difficult to know how best to fill it, leaving many of us doom-scrolling instead of doing anything we enjoy. Everything is very scary right now, and choosing something to watch every night is just another task.
To help you out, we’ve put together a list of long TV shows that you can get properly immersed in, even if it’s for a rewatch. We've even mixed things up a bit so that, while you might not be up for committing to prestige TV right now, there are some lighter shows for those days when your attention span is too busted to follow a storyline. We've also avoided some of the more obvious shows (The Office US, Friends, How I Met Your Mother, The Simpsons, Games of Thrones) and stuck to the ones you've probably heard of but just need that extra push to finally sit down and watch. Enjoy!
