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

"Freaks and Geeks!"

A Look Into The Lives Of The Creatures Of The Night

"What we do in the shadows"

"Jackie Daytona is comedy gold. His human disguise absolutely kills me."

– fodgeparker

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.

We all pride ourselves in knowing random bits of trivia.

While "useless knowledge" is the common parlance for these little fun facts we, often randomly, know, that seems an unfair label.

After all, who knows when a subject comes up in conversation, and you might be the only one who can answer a group question.

All thanks to the fact that you know a random piece of knowledge almost no one else on Earth seems to know.

Redditor Just_Free_Tea7 was curious to learn some of these obscure pieces of trivia, leading them to ask:

"What is a fact that you think barely anyone else knows?"

The world is an ever changing place.

In addition to continuing advancements in technology, human behavior also continues to evolve.

As a result, what might have seemed "normal" 50 years ago might seem far-fetched today, while things which we today consider "normal" might never have even crossed the mind of anyone back then.

Making everything we consider "normal" among the many things in this world that continues to evolve at a rapid pace.

Redditor Primary_Berry_3560 was curious to hear what "normal" everyday things were anything but normal fifty years ago, leading them to ask:

"What is normal now but wasn’t normal 50 years ago (1972)?"
