What is the best thing to watch on Netflix while in quarantine? Show more Show less
Back to question

As the world grinds to a halt with the spread of COVID-19, we all have the responsibility to take public health seriously and isolate ourselves. With that in mind, now's the perfect time to catch up on Netflix! Should you watch something scary to try and redirect your coronavirus anxiety? Or binge watch a sitcom so you can remember what it was like to be able to freely socialise?

Watch something funny Show more Show less

The best thing to do is watch something fun - remember fun? In the days when we used to leave our homes?

Watch Parks and Recreation in quarantine

Parks and Recreation is hilarious, dry at times, and wholesome at heart. It is all about friends, waffles, and work. It provides a great escape from the stress of the pandemic.

The Argument

Parks and Recreation is the best show to watch on Netflix during quarantine for multiple reasons. It’s a relatable comedic sitcom with a talented cast that keeps their audience laughing. The series also made the most out of this COVID-19 pandemic and aired a reunion special filmed via Zoom that doubled as a charitable fundraiser for Feeding America.[1] The show is available on more platforms than just Netflix, too (also available on Hulu, Amazon Prime, and others). Additionally, Parks and Recreation consistently lands at the top of polls that ask what the best show is to watch during quarantine.

Counter arguments

Any claim that there is a best show to watch during quarantine is subjective. The best show depends on the viewer's preference. Some people may prefer dramas or thrillers over comedic sitcoms. Additionally, while Netflix is a popular streaming site, not everyone has a subscription to the platform, and therefore the show is not accessible to all.
