I thought I'd share my favourite light-hearted tv shows that cheer me up any and every day. I was inspired to create this list, both for myself to keep track and for you, because sometimes it's really hard to find something to watch when, magically, every show slips from your memory and you're left there, switching between channels (or youtube videos) with nothing else to watch. Fear no more- here are my favourites! And note: these are probably not all of them since I probably forgot some...
Friends: I mean, it's a classic. If you haven't heard of Friends,
then you need to watch it.
Parks and Recreation: A great show following the Parks and Recreation department
in Pawnee, Indiana. The show follows Leslie Knope and her co-workers as they
fight for their city and make memories.
Big Bang Theory: A sitcom that follows four scientists and their neighbour Penny.
The show is a classic with great jokes and a fun storyline.
2 Broke Girls: This is one of my favourite "sitcom style" shows. I've written about
it before but it deserves yet another moment on my blog. It follows two broke girls
(hence the title) as they try to get their cupcake shop off the ground.
Arrested Development: A show from 2005 that follows the very dysfunctional
Bluth family after a huge financial scandal when they all try to fend for themselves.
It sounds pretty serious but I promise, it's hilarious!
How I Met Your Mother: Currently, I am rewatching this show since it is very easy
to watch and enjoy. The story is told from 2030 when Ted Mosby (as seen above)
tells his kids how he met their mother (thereby the title).
30 Rock: Liz Lemon (above) is the head writer on a comedy show where she has
to deal with an annoying boss and frustrating actors while driving the
show towards success.
New Girl: I am rewatching this show for the third time because I love it! It is lighthearted
yet sweet and hilarious with great characters who work well together. New Girl
follows Jessica Day after she moves into a loft with three roommates and
follows her passion of teaching.
Community: Although I haven't watched this show recently, I have seen the
whole show twice. It is an incredibly creative show that differs from other
comedy/drama shows by its irony and meta way of talking about other
shows. I know, that doesn't really make sense but just watch it! Danny
Pudi does a great job in instilling this feeling.
Modern Family: Three connected and complicated families face trials and
tribulations in their daily lives with great comedic timing and awesome actors.
Saturday Night Live: Is a sketch comedy show with 41 seasons that features
famous guest hosts in incredibly hilarious sketches and parodies of
Gilmore Girls: The show follows a mother and daughter who have a close bond
and a love of coffee (yes, this is the perfect show for me). It starts with Rory in
high school and Loralie as she runs a hotel and strives to open her own inn.
Sex and the City: An oldie but a goldie, this tv series is about four women in
New York City as they find love and work on their careers while commenting
with wit on many aspects of daily life
Mike & Molly: Although I haven't watched more than two seasons of this show
this show, I still find it incredibly funny with Melissa McCarthy in a lead role
and you know that if she's in it then it's bound to be great!
I hope this gave ya'll some inspiration as to what to watch!
