Say goodbye to Monday blues!
Everybody has bad days, whether it’s a breakup, argument with your boss/superiors, or just a day filled with bad vibes all-around.
So it’s only natural for you to hit for that pint of ice cream, or put on your go-to sappy movie, or call up your closest friend.
Although all those methods are really tempting and comforting, why don’t you distract your sad-attention to something new like TV series?
Let it take your mind off your problems and tickle your funny-bones. We promise NO ‘FRIENDS’ or ‘HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER’! (Although they’re great options too!)
1. The Office
A mockumentary consisting of comedic gold, as workers of paper company Dunder Mifflin, go about their everyday-work lives with plenty of tirades, pranks and lots of inappropriate behavior!
Check this scene out for a little taste of what you can expect:
2. Brooklyn Nine-Nine
Fox’s live-action sitcom, Brooklyn Nine-Nine is about an NYPD Detective, Jake Peralta, talented but immature and does the bare minimum, but that changes when he comes to meet the new and stern commanding officer, Captain Ray Holt. The show has crime-solving, romance, comedy all into one.
And let’s not forget the iconic Backstreet Boys-cover, suspects style:
3. Parks And Recreation
This American satire TV show revolves around a fictional town in Indianna called, Pawnee. The writers of the TV series took inspirtions from real life urban-planning and political cases, and stars Amy Poehler, Chris Pratt, Aubrey Plaza and many more. This TV series will make you laugh with its cold opens and funny characterizations.
We’re taking you to different territory with animated TV-series with Archer, espionage, drugs and the life of a dysfunctional private investigator. Archer is a more adult comedy series, the show revolves around Sterling Archer and their equally dysfunctional colleagues.
If you’re looking for a show that’s got subtle comedy, this is your go-to.
5. Adventure Time
Adoptive brothers, Finn the human and Jake the dog, live their lives going on adventures and helping creatures and beings in distress in different kingdoms and lands! This Cartoon Network series is a hit with younger and older audiences, with its funny antics and creatively-plotted characters, this TV series would best describe as a warm hug and lots of laughs.
6. Arrested Development
The show revolves around a dysfunctional and eccentric family, as they’re forced to come together when the protagonists’ father is arrested for suspicious accounting practices.
Arrested Development is packed disturbing and funny family dynamics that we think you’ll definitely enjoy on a bad day.
7. RuPauls Drag Race
RuPaul’s Drag Race is a reality-TV competition with, you guessed it, DRAG QUEENS! With so many sassy characters, you can definitely bet on having a great laugh and shocking tea-spill moments with this show.
Watch these Queens as they lip-sync, sew, and death-drop for their life. Check their latest trailer promo:
No we do not mean the one with Robert Downey Jr., we meant the BBC one! Crime-solving and unorthodox duo, Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson, go about solving crimes while handling personal problems of their own.
This show may sound dreary and boring but British humor and Sherlock’s prone to socializing will have you all laughing and falling in love with him.
Each season contains a 1-hour episode of 3, and it sounds short but trust us, 1 hour can cover a lot!
9. The Great British Bake Off
Also a British favorite, GBBO is a televised baking competition where amateur bakers get their bake on as they get eliminated with each round. So much like Masterchef, but with desserts and more British humor. Also with so many delicious desserts, what’s not to love?!
Don’t believe us? Take a little peek at stand-up comedian, James Acaster’s, experience at the bake-off:
