TV shows that will make you laugh so hard you'll forget what's going on around you

It’s been what feels like 847 years since our last TV blog (it’s really only been 1.5 weeks) so it probably a good time to dive back in with some more recs for all of you. I’m very excited about this TV blog theme. I think we can all agree that there is nothing better than a good laugh - it’s really what we all need right now. We’re all stressed, we’re all anxious, we’re all weirdly tired from binge eating salt & vinegar chips. It’s time to brighten things up with a good chuckle. 

The best thing about this list is that it holds up outside of a social distancing/quarantine lifestyle. So when things go back to normal, and we’re set free from our homes, and you make the choice to cancel your social plans to instead hole up and binge watch a TV show, this list will be here waiting for you. 

The Office
I mean, this is obvious.

An all time classic
