What should I watch?

Iím looking for something mindless to watch - something where I donít need to follow along too closely to understand whatís going on. I like comedy, drama, action, medical, and crime shows. Nothing scary. I prefer tv shows - I donít have the attention span for movies. I have netflix, Hulu, and amazon prime. What should I watch?

Call the Midwife on Netflix. Very good acting, drama with some comedy. Pretty much a lady or two gives birth every episode and drama ensues. Easy to follow. Some episodes are very sad, but I enjoyed it.

Better Off Ted on Hulu. It's ten years old but it's still hilarious.

How about...?

Superstore - Sitcom about a group of Walmart-like employees and their antics

The Unicorn - Sitcom about a recently widowed father of two daughters and how he moves on with life. (It's not depressing or anything.)

We enjoyed Panchayat, a Hindi movie. Itís on Amazon Prime. Iíd describe it as a comedy drama. Itís about an engineering graduate who takes a job (due to no other prospects) as a secretary of a panchayat office in a remote village. A fun watch.

Damnation, Netflix. Itís about a farmersí strike in the 1930s, maybe 1920s, and a strike breaker sent to end it. The strike breaker is actually the estranged brother of the ďpreacherĒ who is leading the strike.

Sweet Magnolias, Netflix. Itís kind of cliche of what people think small town Southern life is like, but I still enjoyed it.

I Know This Much is True, Amazon Prime. Itís based on the Wally Lamb novel. Itís about twin brothers, one has mental health issues

Little Fires Everywhere, Hulu. Also based on a book. Itís about a lady who thrives on schedules and having the perfect life, but then she meets an artist and her daughter and they intertwine with her life and her kidsí lives.

I was going to recommend Schitt's Creek as well. And if you haven't seen them, I love the other two shows Ima listed also!

Oops, I meant to say Panchayat is a Hindi tv series, not movie.

Hereís a couple of British series that are also fun to watch: Detectorists and Doc Martin. Both can be viewed on Amazon Prime, I believe.

also I'm Sorry (but it's raunchy....but hilarious!) a comedy writer and her family and all the **** she gets into!

If you haven't seen The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel it is good. I had heard so much about it but hadn't taken the time to watch it. I am really enjoying it now.

Some older shows I liked were Everwood on Hulu and Heartland (the ranch one). Both of are family dramas.

I've really been enjoying the Durrells in Corfu on Amazon Prime.

I love the cast and the personalities. I love that it's based on a true story. It has humor and a beautiful location.

It's very different than what I usually watch.
