What to Watch When You’re Having One of *Those Days*

A little binge watching never hurt no one.

We all have those days where from the moment we get up nothing seems to go our way. Whether it’s simply a poor perspective or true bad luck, sometimes the only remedy is the warm embrace of binge watching. Here are my top picks for what to watch on a rough day.

Broad City
  • Nothing picks me up on a bad day quite like the absolute ridiculousness of Abbi and Illana. Pick any episode, any season, and I can guarantee you’ll be laughing by the end.
  • Best Episodes: S4E7, S2E3

Those Days

Bob’s Burgers
  • We are all a unique mixture of all three of the Belcher children and their antics never fail to make me a little less grumpy on the grumpiest of days.
  • Best Episodes: S3E21, S1E2, S3E12

Those Days

30 Rock
  • Tina Fey / Liz Lemon is my hero. Period. If you ever need inspiration to embrace your awkwardness and girl power at the same time, tune into 30 Rock.
  • Best Episodes: S1E12, S2E13, S5E17….EVERY episode

Those Days

Modern Family
  • There are so many cheery characters in this cast. From Cam’s sly remarks to Phil’s unwavering goofiness the quick wit never stops.
  • Best Episodes: S2E13, S2E6, S1E9

Those Days

Queer Eye
  • I’ve covered why EVERYONE should watch this show here, just do it.

Those Days

The Office
  • Every character is my favorite character and you’ll only understand that through watching The Office. Nothing makes me laugh quite like Michael Scott’s societal tone-deafness.
  • Best Episodes: S2E12, S4E9, S3E23, S2E1…again EVERY episode

Those Days

Parks and Recreation
  • Another star-studded cast, Tom Haverford (aka Aziz Ansari) cheers me up without fail.
