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?

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"

"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."

Further Adventures In The Final Frontier

"Star Trek TNG"

"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.

When looking at a resume, it's easy to understand how prospective employers will assume someone is very intelligent based on their education and past experience.

But one shouldn't only assume someone's intelligence based on what they read.

More often than not, one can tell rather quickly that someone possesses above-average intelligence, based on how they speak, how they behave, or other telling details.

With each passing year of a marriage, couples will often discover that while they don't love each other any less than they once did, that spark their relationship used to carry has faded.

This will often lead these couples to look for ways to spice things up a bit.

Among the more popular experiments is inviting a third member to their bedroom.

Enticing as this prospect is, however, it's also easy to be intimidated by the reality of it, or even the mere suggestion of it.

"You either die the hero or live long enough to become the villain."

Though not necessarily a universal truth, all of us have witnessed unfortunate moments in our lives where we've seen this saying become a reality.

Be it seeing our favorite public figures take a serious fall from grace, someone we know and admire eventually disappointing us in a devastating manner, or even seeing ourselves turn into someone we promised we'd never become.

People Describe The Darkest Thing They've Ever Done That They Don't Regret

Sometimes we do things that have to be done.

And some of those things live in life's gray area of right and wrong.

What comes as a surprise to some is when we don't care if we're wrong.

We may still technically be in the right.

But morally and ethically, there may be some issues.

But still, many people don't care.
