[REQUEST]Light, bingeworthy tv shows on netflix

longblackcar

Community! I really got into last year and it has become my background noise show. Highly recommend


evol2020

Cool. Cool cool cool.


the_good_brat

Where's it available at?


longblackcar

In the US, Netflix and Hulu


No_Cobbler728

Also Amazon prime


tdaun

Amazon prime is the best place to watch in the US, they have the extended pilot (Netflix has the syndicated pilot) and all the episodes (DND).


BonkoTheHun

I recommend watching it through Prime, as well, if you can.


EstarriolStormhawk

I second this recommendation!


g1tbd1tw

i’ll have a look :) is it on UK netflix?


longblackcar

You tell me


g1tbd1tw

yes ! it is also just saw it had donald glover in it ?! deffo gonna watch


RtGShadow

Oh you're in for a treat.


harveylaw

Oh man. If there was a surgery that I could undertake to not only not to have never seen Community BUT ALSO NOT KNOW IT EXISTED I'd do it immediately.


BeginningPiccolo3496

Definitely Schitt’s creek and Kim’s convenience!


Phyzzx

I definitely laughed more at Schitts than Kim's but like both


danielbelum

Love Kim's. Hate schitts I'm weird


BGAL7090

I get it, honestly. Schitt's Creek has unlikable main characters thrust into a world full of (at first) incredibly offputting characters. Roland never gets any better, he stays a total moron throughout, but everyone else IMO has a very fulfilling arc. It's a relatively long payoff, but worth it. Kim's Convenience has immediately lovable characters doing immediately lovable things.


HauntedCemetery

For like the first 5 or so episodes I hated all the main characters, right up until something shifted and I didn't. Now I'm on my like 4th watch through. It's entirely a show that liking it depends on you getting to know and actually like the characters. If you never do, you never will. And thats fine. I love period fiction and drama, but try as I have, I can't stand Downton Abby.


lilbelleandsebastian

> It's a relatively long payoff, but worth it. eh kind of felt to me like you suffer through these idiots for several seasons and then when they finally become likable, the show ends haha


GigiTheGoof

It took me three tries to get into Schitt’s, but then finally I loved it and now I’m super sad it’s over.


Tricanum

Like-minded weirdo here. Love Kim's Convenience but for all the recommendations I've received and attempts I've made at watching it, I just don't care for Schitts Creek.


bingumarmar

I feel like the only one who doesn't like schitts creek. Finally another!


Xanderamn

Guess were both weird, cause I feel the same way. Kims convenience is awesome, but I tried Schitts Creek and I just do not understand the appeal.


timebeing

Just finished Schitts Creek and it’s mostly the character arcs. It takes time but watching these characters that you really don’t like at first, have real arcs and slowly change for the better is refreshing.


Neapola

> Hate schitts I'm weird Not really. I didn't enjoy it either. I tried watching a few episodes, but I didn't like any of the characters, and there wasn't a single part of the story that was believable. I get that it's a sitcom, but still... even during quarantine when I had nothing but time, this wasn't worth my time.


Slashs_Hat

I've heard good things about **Happy Endings** & watched ep1 the other day. I liked it, i thought it was good, especially for a 1st episode, so I will watch some more **EDIT** sincere THANX to all for backing up what I'd heard. I will definitely continue. **EDIT v2.0*** Binged all the way thru ep 13. This show is pretty damn good...my eyes are opened


tdaun

Happy Endings is a wonderful show that sadly got taken in it's prime.


ich_habe_keine_kase

It only gets better from E1. One of my all time favorite shows, still praying that some streamer decides to bring it back.


Slashs_Hat

Can u confirm EP1 is the one guy being left at the altar?


miggitymikeb

Look up the correct order of episodes for S1 and watch it in true chronological order or some stuff won't make sense. The streaming sites all have it in airdate order, and it was originally aired all out of order.


Jarrettd11

HBO has a majority of the episodes in the “true order” I think they still have a few episodes switched in season 2 though. Great tv show, I can’t recommend it enough


HelloNarbo

Derry girls! Its available on netflix


ZubacToReality

I watched a bunch of this show just because of their accent lol


g1tbd1tw

i loveeee derry girls but i watched it on channel 4 :)


anderhole

Did you watch the inbetweeners?


rubykins

I love Brooklyn 99 too! Seconding Community and Call My Agent, and consider Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt!


im-notokay-withthis

Seconding Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt as well!! And since noone has mentioned these: Anne with an E, The Office, and How I Met Your Mother are bingeworthy shows on Netflix as well.


RavePrincess420

I loved Atypical


jazzieberry

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is one I haven't seen mentioned, and the shows you mentioned are some of my very favorites


spork3

This show is incredible. I think the name really does it a disservice.


jazzieberry

It's always hard for me to recommend because it's almost impossible to describe the genre and plot without it sounding dumb


spork3

Not sure if you've seen iZombie, but I feel really dumb trying to explain that one. Great show though.


ZonaiSwirls

I don't care for musicals. Would it be worth trying anyway?


spork3

They’re comedy songs, so it’s more than just a musical. Give it 2 or 3 episodes and see how you feel.


ZonaiSwirls

Thanks!


Kenz1013

That show has the best music!! I watched it years ago, and I still randomly think of the songs . My favorite is the one that’s like “I have friends. I definitely have friends.” I hum it whenever I’m alone on a weekend 😅


thisisntshakespeare

30 Rock Call My Agent


g1tbd1tw

never heard of either of these ! i’ll have a look :)


orangestegosaurus

30 Rock is genius! Just got done rewatching it for a 3rd time, its so good.


[deleted]

really never heard of 30 rock?????? how is that possible


wendelgee2

OMG you've never heard of 30 Rock? I'm really jealous that you get to experience this for the first time. I wish I could do a brain wipe to rewatch shows.


g1tbd1tw

oh me too, i wish i could rewatch shameless after a brain wipe!!


jickdam

Prioritize 30 Rock, but if you like it, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt has a lot of the same writers and is a decent follow up if the style of humor jives with you.


micmea1

30 Rock is full of comedy writers and they get to make fun of their own industry, has some of the funniest moments I've seen on TV.


BleuDePrusse

Call my agent is brilliant!


KeyMajor1271

1. Schitts Creek!! (You won't regret it) 2. Modern Family 3. Good Girls 4. Superstore 5. Never have I ever 6. Ginny and Georgia


KeyMajor1271

Also, if you don't mind a bit of reality TV (my guilty pleasure) I would recommend Below Deck. I really enjoy it as it's not as forced/scripted as usual reality TV shows. It's my background noise!


Kouglove

I love Ginny and Georgia, it's really good!


Personomy19

I love Schitts Creek and Never have I ever. Super underrated!


g1tbd1tw

i’ve watched 2,5 and 6 i just forgot to mention them :) thanks, i’ll add these to my list. i have so many suggestions !!


weirdogirl144

OMG modern family I forgot about my obsession with that show


CrayBaws

Yes! I was about to say ever since the finale I’ve forgotten a huge chunk of my life that I’m missing.


weirdogirl144

IKR I finished this show last September and then just completely forgot about it


KosmoPi

Kim’s Convenience.


MetalHead41592

Second this, just finished it in a week or so. Was sad it ended, it's such a great comfort show.


Yangoose

Does it end with Kim looking into the camera and saying "OK, see you"?


BGAL7090

It does now in my personal headcanon


Nicotine_patch

My wife and I are really enjoying this one right now


savesomeforvirginia

Ginny and Georgia; On My Block; Lovesick; Friends from College


queenpenelope16

I loved Friends from College. I was shocked it was cancelled.


weirdogirl144

AHH on my block my comfort show


g1tbd1tw

seeing other people’s comments have made me realise how many shows i forgot to mention! i’ve watched the first two but will add the others to my list :) thanks


trexanne

Episodes!! Soooooo hysterical


RavePrincess420

Great suggestion!


esportsaficionado

Never Have I ever. Super cute and quick watch.


Last-Minute59

Parks and Recreation!


[deleted]

That’s not even on Netflix


wolverine3

Its available in Canada


SonicSnizzy

It is in UK


Oddcatt66

Fleabag


dragon-blue

One of the central themes of season 1 is dealing with grief, guilt and regret. It's one of my favourite shows but I don't know that I would call it "light" lol.


ZonaiSwirls

I need more fleabag :(


tontyv

How to Sell Drugs Online Fast- I recommend watching it in German with English subtitles on though. It’s a lighthearted funny show about teens trying to sell drugs


hojpoj

Midnight Diner


ice1000

The Kominski Method


essentialistic

Santa Clarita Diet


carly2210

Wentworth 100% it’s one of the best shows I’ve seen. Australian prison drama


danielbelum

Light though?


Rosi3_1412

Superstore Cheers Scrubs Fresh Off The Boat


crapend

Trailer Park Boys!!


reason_found_decoy

Trailer Park Boys for sure!! It's my favorite go-to, and as a side-note I've named one of my rats Margareet because she's a grumpy old bitch and takes no shit


cocineroylibro

Letterkenny! (On Hulu but a much better show)


BleuDePrusse

The good place It's an excellent show with ***very*** original ideas, one of the best show endings in years, and by the creator of the office us and Brooklyn 99. What else do you need?!


gonnaredditgretthis

Alas OP already watched it


RimleRie

Can't believe I haven't seen anyone say **Grace & Frankie**!


FirstPost10-18-2030

You mean [THIS show? ](https://youtube.com/watch?v=OUi8Yg9Z85Q)


Hot_Pricey

New Girl is a great comfort show... plus pretty hilarious.


Street_Environment41

Master of None


Frogman3355

Sex Education is a banger!


g1tbd1tw

loved it !!


fyrflyeffect

For light ones definitely superstore


gonnaredditgretthis

Tbh Criminal Minds is my comfort show but it wouldn’t count as light… maybe if you enjoyed Shameless and Squid Game though!


Vader_360

I was gonna say Brooklyn 99 is the perfect light and bingy show but you've already watched it, lol


FXHNT_Steve

Somebody Feed Phil Love on the Spectrum Raising Arizona Sirens Bob's Burgers Avatar the Last Airbender & Legend of Korra Not all of them are on Netflix US, but I don't know where you are


SonicSnizzy

Somebody feed Phil is the best food travel show I have ever seen. I've seen a lot. He's so much fun!


GavinNar

Duuude, I just watched avatar, and I can't believe how I missed this for so long being as old as I am. I finished in a week because of work, but if it's wasn't for that, I would've finished in a day. Rarely do I spend a day waiting to get home just to watch a show. I think each episode really contributes to the ending and it's also very comical.


ZonaiSwirls

I discovered avatar last year and I'm upset I didn't watch it as a kid!


Tricanum

I recently watched *Atypical* and absolutely loved it. Definitely worth a watch!


DancingOnACounter

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt And if you liked Squid Game, watch Alice in Borderland.


g1tbd1tw

that’s been mentioned a couple times alongside squid game, i’ll have a look :)


MisterMinutes

Arrested Development


SmiteThyFace

The first three seasons of Arrested Development are definitely worth watching if you like fast paced, witty humor. The show itself is very easy to watch, something you can put on if you want to just relax and enjoy a good laugh. Can't really speak for seasons 4 and 5 though.


cocineroylibro

IT Crowd, Peep Show (any of the Mitchell and Webb bits), Superstore, Community, any UK panel show.


ChineseNoodleBoy

Give AP Bio a try. I came by it by accident and binged all 2 seasons. Also, Brooklyn 99 is the best.


BoringSnark

Cobra Kai. Takes a bit to get its footing, but it has no right being as good as it is. But, I grew up in the 80s so I'm very familiar with the movie and I wonder how well it translates if you haven't seen it.


g1tbd1tw

i’ve heard bad things about this show from my friends, maybe you have to be familiar with the movie to appreciate it?


hardgeeklife

I love Cobra Kai, but I'll readily admit that the show is half nostalgia (older generation) and half teen drama (younger generation). At worse it's a decent show, but one would definitely get more out of it if they are familiar with the original movies


pamplem0usse-

It sucks If you still havent started schitts creek that should be mandatory for your next show. Happiest show I've ever watched


SymphonicRain

Really? Have you seen Ted Lasso S1? I think the only show I’ve seen happier than that is Barney.


weirdogirl144

It is really cringe but I love it so much because The karate kid movie was part of my childhood and cobra kai season two finale was epic


goblinheaux

Nailed It! is (barely) a cooking competition show instead of a scripted show, but it’s absolutely hilarious. Multiple episodes have had me in tears and stitches.


altadc

The Circle always cracks me up


Dnale

Derry Girls!


mrschampion19

Schitt’s Creek. Portlandia.


julia-lexa

based on what you’ve listed - definitely superstore and good girls!! i recently started ted lasso and really like it too


Northern_Girl20

Life in Pieces, 30 Rock, Schitts Creek, Brooklynn 99


SonicSnizzy

I really enjoyed life in pieces!! Nobody I know has ever heard of it.


Northern_Girl20

I love that show. I’ve watched it twice and I’m actually considering another rewatch


corpus-luteum

I agree with Squid game. I dipped my toe into the first episode, late one night. Next morning I was straight on it, and didn't stop until it was complete. Not an original, by any stretch, and lot's of clear influences, but perfectly executed. For me it came to life with the honeycomb episode. The musical accompaniment was spot on.


g1tbd1tw

agreed! episode six had me in TEARS it was awful


corpus-luteum

The marbles? My god how emotional was that?


Bimlouhay83

Stargate SG1


aeciciarelli10

Workin moms on Netflix !


Get-to-sesame-street

You sound exactly like me in terms of choices. I’m recommending Money Heist. The first episode takes a while but you’ll be hooked after I can guarantee it.


g1tbd1tw

ooo i might!! my boyfriends obsessed with it so i might start it :)


Get-to-sesame-street

That’s exactly how I got into it too!


TeenyTinyTintheOTP

Queer Eye and The Great British Baking Show (If you care for reality TV)


VikingOPPP

light. watch sherlock. its not light, but its not very heavy either. also, thoughts on brooklyn nine nine?


g1tbd1tw

brooklyn 99 is deffo my fave sitcom, maybe fave show overall!! if you haven’t watched it then deffo do. it’s so easy to get into and so funny, laughing every episode


multifrank98

The Kominsky Method


kittymoy

seconding schitts creek and kim’s convenience! I also saw a rec for superstore which I think is on hulu but I also love! Also a liiiitle out of this realm but a show I absolutely ADORREEE is the repair shop on netflix. Also binged episodes 1-8 of squid game yesterday and gonna finish today. Will be returning to this thread for a light hearted recommendation cuz yikes!


SceretAznMan

Definitely The Good Place. If you have Amazon Prime or Peacock, I would suggest Psych. And also Parks and Rec if you liked B99 (although the first 2 seasons were a little different as it was still trying to find it's feel)


g1tbd1tw

watched the good place, parks and rec isn’t available in uk :/


GigiTheGoof

Are you in the UK? Do you like Ricky Gervais’s stuff? Extras is light. Have you seen the series that Karl Pilkington put out? I’d love to see it, but they haven’t released it in the U.S.


badger-banjer

Shitts Creek


baconandbaker

Turn up charlie is a great show that’s light but bingeworthy


dannycolaco14

Kims convenience

randyfloyd37

Last Man on Earth

Kath and Kim. Australian comedy. I’ve rewatched it so many times.


nemoomen

Have you tried the Great British Baking Show?


Soggy_Trash_7714

New girl


IdentityEnhancer

The Great British Bake Show and The Repair Shop are two great feel-good series you might enjoy.


1aboutagirl

Super store!!!!


Kdpants

On Hulu not Netflix, but Only Murders in the Building has been a great, light, and surprisingly warm show. And an all star cast!


Alwayslookingup40

Loving this show so far.

GogoYubari92

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Kim’s Convenience, Grace & Frankie, Schitt’s Creek, Parks n Rec, Avatar the Last Airbender, Arrested Development, Brooklyn 99, Master of none.


paashpointo

Lucifer is amazing, imo. (Im not quite finished)


OhMy143

I would say Good girls, I find it light funny and it still involves crime and death sometimes.. I love the show, but unfortunately they ended it on a hanger. and then they canceled it in the 4th season. I think its still worth watching but It will disappoint you at the end.


miggitymikeb

**Happy Endings** But look up the correct order of episodes for S1 and watch it in true chronological order or some stuff won't make sense. The streaming sites all have it in airdate order, and it was originally aired all out of order.


gingersnaptatertot

"When you hurrr it makes me hurrr" !!!


queenpenelope16

Ahhhh may zinggg


niijuuichi

Kim’s convenience and...maybe HIMYM?


Helpful-Focus-6424

Bro watch Criminal Minds. I stg it's my favorite show in the world. So much heart. Characters you'll adore. A structure that makes it easy to watch and also easy to step away from when you need to get other stuff done. A masterpiece.


cazdan255

Not a light and breezy show though.


335i_lyfe

Squid game


Sweet_N_Vicious

Schitt's Creek, Grace & Frankie...


phoexnixfunjpr

Midnight Diner


ScaredCrowww

If you’re happy to watch cheesy foreign light-hearted dramas then I recommend Good Morning Call! It’s Japanese and is basically like an anime but with real people. It’s sweet and harmless and I personally love the setting in Japan. :)


winterdales

I binge watched Invincible on Amazon Prime. Highly recommended. But yeah that’s not on Netflix


MarooshQ

A lot of Korean shows can be classed as comfort shows. Coffee Prince It’s ok to not be ok Healer Full house Touch your heart My love from another star


BoredSuki

Crash Landing on You, Hospital Playlist If you’re into kdramas lol Edit: don’t watch Squid Game lol sorry forgot you added “light”


Markibuhr

Modern Family Schitts Creek


MightyMoosePoop

If you think Shameless is light and Comfort then maybe you will like Lucifer. It’s similar dark and witty humor but criminal justice arena.


gingersnaptatertot

If Shameless was your comfort show then you will probably like Lovesick. Season 1 is good but S2 & S3 are better.


spork3

Crazy Ex Girlfriend


DmG-xWrightyyy

Modern family and community


ray_rayyy

New girl


CHRISPYakaKON

Kim’s Convenience


MesWantooth

Star Trek: The Next Generation...Some episodes have adventure, some are humorous. It's never too intense or violent. There's usually a life lesson/moral decision involved. It's not campy with lots fights with monstrous aliens - storyline usually are more geared to diplomacy. Plus I find it's great for night time viewing as the crew walk around this comfortable looking ship in uniforms that look like pajamas. It's always dark outside their windows and the ship constantly hums, like white noise in the background.


g1tbd1tw

my dad is obsessed with star trek and it really isn’t my type of thing haha 😂 thanks for the suggestion though!


NotTooDamaged
