Self-quarantining during an international pandemic isn’t exactly the most entertaining way to spend a few weeks. After a long day of working from home, order in from your favorite local restaurant and social distance yourself with these top series to binge on Netflix.  

Better Call Saul
Starring: Bob Odenkirk, Jonathan Banks, Rhea Seehorn

We’re huge fans of the Breaking Bad franchise and took note when El Camino launched on Netflix in the fall. Better Call Saul covers everything pre-Walter White, detailing show favorites like Saul Goodman, Mike Ehrmantraut, and Gus Fring’s antics before Heisenberg came to town. Watch seasons 1-4 now on Netflix and season 5 airing Mondays at 9 p.m. on AMC. 

Starring: Colin Ford, Alyvia Alyn Lind

This post-apocalyptic comedy follows Josh Wheeler, a lovestruck teen, and a group of misfits as they try to survive hordes of gangs and Ghoulies. We love Daybreak because it’s packed full of pop culture references and makes for great skateboard inspiration. Check out our Daybreak-inspired board “The King’s Guard” on Instagram!

Lost In Space
Starring: Molly Parker, Maxwell Jenkins

Inspired by the 1965 series, this science-fiction show follows the adventures of a family of space colonists whose spaceship veers off course. We’ve been big fans of Lost In Space since it first aired on Netflix - in fact, we sent a custom J2 Beacon board to space in honor of the show. 

Killer Inside: The Mind of Aaron Hernandez
Starring: Kevin Armstrong

This Netflix original docuseries created a lot of buzz earlier in the year for its deep dive into the crimes of former Patriots player Aaron Hernandez. If you’re into true crime and struggling with the sports hiatus, give this series a watch. 

Starring: Wagner Moura, Boyd Holbrook, Pedro Pascal

This series chronicles the rise of the cocaine trade in Colombia and the real-life stories of drug kingpins of the late '80s, like Pablo Escobar. Stream seasons 1-3, and follow with the spin-off series Narcos: Mexico.

Grey’s Anatomy
Starring: Ellen Pompeo, Justin Chambers, Chandra Wilson

If you’re anticipating eight weeks of ‘shelter in place’, Grey’s Anatomy is a seemingly never-ending series made just for times of longterm isolation like this. The show follows the lives of surgical interns, residents, and attending doctors as they develop into medical professionals while trying to maintain personal lives. You can binge seasons 1-15 now on Netflix and season 16 airing Thursdays at 8 p.m. on ABC.

Black Mirror 
Rotating Cast

Perhaps the only Netflix series that could’ve predicted the COVID-19 madness, Black Mirror is British stand-alone show best known for its hyperdramatic scenarios and real-world ties. Watch seasons 1-5 of the original show and follow with Black Mirror: Bandersnatch, a movie-length addition. 

The Office
Starring: Rain Wilson, Jenna Fischer, John Krasinski

The Office is perhaps the most binge-worthy series Netflix has to offer. Cumulating 9 seasons, this mockumentary-style show follows the lives of run-of-the-mill employees at a paper supply firm.

I Am Not Okay With This
Starring: Sophia Lillis, Wyatt Oleff

If you’re a fan of Stranger Things and The End of the F***ing World, you’ll want to stream one of Netflix’s newest series I Am Not Okay With This. The show follows a teenage girl as she balances the trials and tribulations of high school while balancing newfound, mysterious superpowers budding within her. 

Pandemic: How to Prevent an Outbreak
Starring: Isabel Castro, Doug Shultz

In Netflix’s most eerily-timed docuseries about illness and outbreak, Pandemic is equal parts informative and terrifying as told by doctors, scientists, and disaster experts. The show predicts we’re due for a new, fast-moving deadly virus. We can’t think of a better time to binge this series than in the middle of what its sources predicted!
