Drama? Check! Cute friendships? Check! Crazy family? Double check! Misadventures? Also, Check. Sitcoms that you can binge watch!
Hello, Monday! I become a really useless person in the universe on Friday and Saturday. So, I spend most of my time watching T.V and enjoying coffee shots. This weekend, hubby and I decided to watch “Comedian in cars getting coffee” by Jerry Seinfeld. If I have to describe this series, then it is romancing vintage cars, coffee, and conversation – I’d call it a perfect harmony. My husband and I are poles apart…if he’s north then I’m south but our love for sitcoms is the only thing that falls on common ground.
My love affair with sitcoms started when I was working in a high-pressure, stressful and particularly, number crunching environment of banking. Hubby and I used to come back from work and rejuvenate watching familiar sitcoms. Believe me, these sitcoms can never disappoint you. They have the power to refresh you instantly.
These days I turn it on, while meeting the deadline, checking emails or finishing crazy lists of daily chores. Here are 7 shows that my husband and I can watch on repeat mode.
Even though Seinfeld is more than 25 years old, it has the same magic and appeal. I was introduced to Seinfeld by my husband who can watch it 1000 times without any complaint. Seinfeld is the best example of a Sitcom about nothing. The humor comes from the situation, a situation that we can relate to and some distinct characters. “The Chinese Restaurant” (Season 1) and ” The Betrayal” (Season 9) are my favorite episodes.
2. The Office
This show is really outstanding and if I have to rate this T.V series then I am going to give it 5-stars. I love everything about this series characters, camera, and comedy. It is so entertaining that one weekend, we ended up watching 10 episodes in a day. Steve Carell is fantastic as a boss. My favorite episode is This is the best mockumentary comedy since “Yes, Minister”!
Favorite Episode: “Frame Toby” (Season 5) Michael’s absolute horror at seeing Toby back at Dunder Mifflin was the absolute greatest. I can watch that scream on a repeat mode.
3. Modern Family
Modern Family is the most celebrated sitcoms of all time. Strong story telling, ensemble cast, and direction of this show make it unique. Three different stories in one episode aren’t easy especially when it is a sitcom. It can be a comedy of errors or a disaster. The moral of this series is quite simple if we have a strong relationship we can overcome any problem and situation.
4. How I Met Your Mother
Ted (Josh Radnor) Marshall (Jason Segel), Lily (Alyson Hannigan), Robin (Cobie Smulders), and Barney (Neil Patrick Harris) grew up together, and some of the times they had were legendary. HIMYM is more like a dramedy (if that’s even a word) = drama + comedy. It has some epic episodes and one of my favorite character from the show is Barney. Even though I didn’t like the end of the show, I still love watching the episodes.
“I thought I’d never see that girl again. But it turns out, I was too close to the puzzle to see the picture that was forming.” –Ted Mosby, in the pilot episode of How I Met Your Mother
5. Two and a half men
Oh boy! This sitcom is my favorite. Two and a Half Men is a
Adult comedy series involving two brothers and a child. It has a perfect set of dialogues, situations, and sarcasm. Don’t get me wrong but I loved Charlie Sheen in this epic series. I have often seen people putting this show on their “Worst” sitcom list but I have enjoyed every single episode of this show. When Charlie Sheen left the show, I also lost interest.
I know! I know! Friends are on everyone’s “Favorite” sitcom list. If you are like Phoebe (wink) then I just want to tell you a little about this show. It is about a circle of friends living in Manhattan and their trial, triumphs and their journey. Friends is the most iconic show of our lifetime!
7. Everybody Loves Raymond
I love this show. It’s hilarious. Ray (Raymond, the protagonist), Debra (Wife), Marie ( critical and over-protective mother), Frank (dim-witted father), and Robert (Brother) are the main characters of the show. The acting, writing, and direction of the show are wonderful. It is like an old-school comedy that you won’t mind enjoying when you don’t want to use your brain.
