People Break Down Which Comfort TV Shows They Could Watch Endlessly
Touchstone Television

Streaming platforms like Netflix and Hulu have enough shows that we'll never have enough hours of our lives to watch all of them.


Nevertheless, we're thankful we'll never be in any shortage of entertainment without ever leaving the comfort of our home.

But even binging new shows can get exhausting because that means we have to search thousands of other titles to start the next binge once we're done with a previous fixation.

Sometimes, revisiting a show we've already watched many times before brings us comfort–even though we know the outcome of every episode every time we re-watch them.

It's not about that. It's more like hanging out with your buddies.

Curious to hear about viewers and their go-to programming, Redditor BaguetteOfDoom asked:

"What's your 'comfort series' that you watch over and over again?"

We can rely on these shows for a good laugh.

And who doesn't love to be in stitches these days?

Hanging With The Bluth Family

"Arrested Development, daily."

– Portland-to-Vt

The Misfits We Grew To Love

Not Your Average American Family

"Malcolm in the Middle"

– spaghettispaceship

"phenomenal from the first episode to the last."

– BlueChamp10

Medical, courtroom, procedurals, and sci-fi adventures are all reliable genres we can revisit at any point, without having to understand minor, continuous storylines.

Just What The Doctor Ordered

"When I was in grad school it was House, M.D. No matter where I was at - dorm room, library, memorial union - if I was writing I also had House up on Netflix. During my year and a half I bet I watched that series 5 or 6 times. Such a great show."

– ISUgrad1313

The Perfect Portal For Escapism

"Stargate SG-1"

– Banqouuu

"I have watched so much SG-1 I couldn't even begin to count how many times I've seen it all the way through. I'm with you on that one."

– libra00

Further Adventures In The Final Frontier

"Star Trek TNG"

– bananabananovic

"Came here to say this. Each episode is so self contained it makes it easy to pickup and watch."

– ProtocolPhilosopher

Now, That Settles It

"Leverage."

"Fun little show. Pretty formulaic. But the good guys always win, the bad guys always lose, there's action, and a healthy dose of humor in every episode."

"The cast meshes very well together, too."

– LoudPancreas

Some classics just warrant viewing on an endless loop.

Time To Share Cheesecake With Old Friends

"The Golden Girls."

– Smilingtribute

"I’ve watched a golden girls episode almost everyday for the past 20 years. The jingle that plays right after the theme song puts me in the best mood."

– W1ldy0uth

​A Personal Connection

"SpongeBob. When my dad passed the last gift I had from him was a huge SpongeBob plushie.. I religiously watched the series while trying to cope with my loss. And, as stupid as it sounds, SpongeBobs happiness and dorkiness often took me away from my dark times. He will always be my favorite."

"Edit: Thank you for all the rewards, I didn't expect it to take off like this. SPONGEBOB FOR THE WIN!"

"Always follow your heart, unless your heart is bad with directions." 💞

– lifesalotofsh*t

Aliens, The Supernatural, Government Conspiracies, Oh My!

"The X-Files"

– PatienceandFortitude

"Mine too! Going to rewatch Memento Mori and through Redux this week."

– stormbutton

My friends know this about me, but I'm a huge fan of the college drama, Felicity.

The show aired on the WB network in the late 90s-early 2000s and the showrunner was none other than J.J. Abrams.

The show is worth repeated viewing for me because the performances in that show were stellar.

I notice different subtle nuances that Keri Russell so brilliantly brought to the quirky character–who followed her high school obsession, Ben Covington, from Palo Alto, California to New York City–every time I re-watch my, yes, DVDs of the show.

Sadly, the controversial haircut is what has gone down in the annals of bad decisions on TV. But I assure you, the show is MUCH more than that.

But now that it's on Hulu, the sepia-toned, restrained, angsty drama still holds up and can be seen on Hulu. I strongly suggest you go watch it, and fall in love.

People Who Live In Tourist Destinations Divulge What They Wish Tourists Would Stop Doing

When traveling and seeing the world, it is always best to also understand the lay of the land.

That seems to be something we forget.

As tourists, it's suddenly, "All bets are off. I have no manners. And I'm here to burn down the town!"

You know people still live and work there right?

And that a touch of decorum is much appreciated.

So let's see what the locals would like from us while we visit.

Redditor Winterbeers wanted world travelers to listen up to the locals for a minute before you run off to your destination. They asked:

"People who live at tourist destinations, what is it you wish tourists would stop doing when visiting?"

People Explain Which Jobs Have Become Woefully Over-Romanticized

Movies make so many jobs look cool to a point where we're like... "I want to do that!"

But in the end it's some of the most tedious, boring stuff we could do and then of course the danger factor always looks sexy until... you're in danger.

Being frivolous with our lives is romantic on paper, but makes you cry in reality.

And most of the time, the jobs don't pay.

That would be nice to know sooner.

People Divulge Which Questions They'd Like To Ask Trans People Without Judgment

Humans are naturally curious creatures - it's a primate thing.

As kids, we tend to explore those curiosities and ask whatever random question popped into our heads. As adults, we learn that some stuff just isn't our business. Some questions are intrusive or uncomfortable.

We don't necessarily "mature" beyond ever having an inappropriate or intrusive curious thought. We are just mature enough to know we aren't entitled to those answers, and that it's unfair to make someone uncomfortable by asking those questions.

But then there's Reddit...

The day Joe Biden won the 2020 Presidential Election, people literally took to the streets to celebrate, giving an idea that people weren't so sad to see his predecessor leave office.

Indeed, many think so ill of the 45th President of the United States, that people have a hard time even saying or writing his name.

Throughout his tumultuous, often headline-making four years in office, he was frequently referred to as the "worst President of all time."

But was he?

Redditor Unaball3r was curious to hear who the Reddit community considered the all time worst leader of the free world, leading them to ask:

"Who was actually the worst President in US History and why?"
