Dads being dads are mostly fun to chill with (unless they are scolding you for all your life choices just because you left the lights on in the washroom). But, sadly, with our growingly busy schedules, we rarely get to spend time with them. So why not this Father’s Day, catch up on some shows with them.

1. Modern Family

This mockumentary shows the lives of three inter-related families. The series captures multiple father-children moments – from awkward and tension-filled, to heartwarming instances.

You can watch it on Hotstar.


2. F.A.T.H.E.R.S.

The show revolves around the relationship between millennials and their fathers, who try to act ‘cool’ to gel with their cooler offsprings.

You can watch it on TVF Play.


3. Made In Heaven

While fathers are not always of the most radical kinds (unless yours is), it’s always nice to let them get a sneak peek into the reality of your generation. From career, relationships to sexuality, this show touches upon all the hot topics relevant to the youth of the country. Maybe you’ll be able to start a dialogue with your father. Maybe he’ll say, ‘ye kya laga rakha hai, nalayak‘. You’ll see. 

You can watch it on Amazon Prime.

5. Brooklyn Nine-Nine

Apart from the main storyline, the show involves a lot of subplots revolving around the theme of fathers.
