Disclaimer – Some of the shows listed below have problematic instances – from casual sexism to racism and homophobia. While we hail them as our comfort zones, it goes without saying that we are not pedestalising or redeeming them.

There are plenty more fish in the sea. But our hearts go back to those few TV shows that have become our comfort zones now. 

Here’s to entertainment that feels like home-


This show remains our hack to adulting and our support system for when we hit the bedrock. The only show that told us ‘life was gonna be this way’. *Clap clap clap clap.*


2. Brooklyn 99

Jake Peralta and co. taking care of each other when anyone(by which I mean, Jake) fucks up, a feeling equivalent to being burrito-ed in a warm blanket in winter. Repeat after me, Gina Linetti, spaghetti, confetti.


3. The Office

Following the lives of Michael, Dwight, Pam, and Jim, we never knew ‘office’ could be this much fun. Also, Jim and Pam for life, amirite or amirite?

4. Modern Family

Three families, interconnected and going through a plethora of bitter-sweet moments together, this wholesome show is a sweet respite from the troubles of the world.


5. The Vampire Diaries

This love triangle with a supernatural angle is one of our guilty pleasures. We watched the show and it was epic. Then the sun came up, reality set in and the show was still epic.

Are you team Stelena or Delena?

6. The Big Bang Theory

This show just concluded in the month of May, giving its viewers a warm finale. And it’s no ‘bazinga’ that we can’t help but watch it on loop.

7. Gossip Girl

You say teen drama, we say ‘Gossip Girl’. Another guilty pleasure show with pretty dresses, pretty people and ‘let-me-fetch-some-popcorn’ moments.


8. Sex And The City

The TV show that talked about hush-hush subjects openly and changed a lot for us by laying bare these ‘controversial’ topics. We keep going back for the bond that these four women share. Also, I am a ‘Sam’. And you?

The Circular

9. Full House

A wholesome half hour of chaotic and cutesy events- not just the house, watching this show on repeat, our hearts are full too.


10. Grey’s Anatomy

Surgical interns, residents, and attending physicians juggling personal lives and work- the show that basically made us all self-declared experts on human anatomy.


11. Rick And Morty

Weird experiments, indifferent family, and a genius granddad- we can watch Morty’s wack and absurd life on repeat any given day.


12. Shararat

Three women from three different generations putting out fires arising out of chaotic situation, by just a click of the fingers. ‘Shring bring sarvaling, bhoot bhavishya vartamaan badling‘. With Shararat now available on Hotstar, you already know what we are binging on every other day.


13. Sarabhai vs Sarabhai

A great script full of bagful of insights into human idiosyncrasies, this show remains a breath of fresh air amid all the average masala we are served with.

India Times

14. Hum Paanch

Another desi wholesome sitcom, giving us an insight into the life of a typical middle-class family. And it’s always a treat to watch this iconic show.


15. Seinfeld

Watching this ‘show about nothing‘ is relatable level max, as our own lives are basically one absurdity piled over another.
