With so many shows to stream on all the various digital viewing platforms at our fingertips, it's a challenge trying to allocate enough time to pick and choose which shows to watch.


My friends and I often recommend the TV series we're currently obsessed with every time we catch up, and even though we take mental notes of the shows we just "have to watch," it's nearly impossible to get to all of the recommendations.

But we all have our guilty pleasures when it comes to familiar TV shows that we have no problem revisiting–even though we know every plot twist and how all our beloved characters complete their journies.

Curious to hear about people's comfort TV shows, Redditor makosh22 asked:

"What series you can re-watch again and again?"

Screwball comedies are reliable for repeated laughter.

As a kid, I remember they would run Twilight Zone marathons on holidays like July 4th.

While my parents entertained guests visiting our BBQ cookout and pool party, I would sit on the couch and watch all the re-runs, hoping my favorite episodes would be making the rounds at some point.

That show, to this day, is classic television for me, and hearing Uncle Serling introducing each episode brings me so much comfort.

My favorites episodes of note were, "To Serve Man," "It's A Good Life," "The Masks," and "The Monsters Are Due On Maple Street."

There are tons of other great episodes to mention.
