    If you're looking to literally laugh out loud (and who among us isn't at the moment) you can't go wrong with this critically-acclaimed comedy about Illana and Abbi, two friends in their twenties that live in New York City and seem to turn even the mundanity of day to day life into hilariously chaotic adventures.

    4. Billions

It follows his new life, and the unlikely bonds formed between him and the family whose car he hid in.

    9. Parks and Recreation

    NBC

    Available: seasons 1-7, 125 episodes

    The equivalent of a hug in the form of a TV show, the friendships formed between the members of the parks and rec department in the fictional town of Pawnee are seriously heartwarming but never overly saccharine.

    14. The Sopranos

    HBO

    Available: seasons 1-6, 86 episodes

    If you're sick of everyone telling you to watch The Sopranos, you may now actually have time to see it and get them to stop! The iconic drama shows Tony Soprano's struggle to balance his family life with his life of crime, and tbh there's a reason it's won so many awards.

    15. Westworld

    HBO

    Available: seasons 1-3, 22 episodes

    16. Game of Thrones

    HBO

    Available: seasons 1-8, 73 episodes

    Wanted to get into Game of Thrones at its peak but felt you had missed the boat or there was too much to catch up on? Well if it's still on your "to watch" list, you can stream every single episode now (and they're pretty long so it's gonna take you a good while).

    17. The Handmaid's Tale

    Hulu

    Available: seasons 1-2, 23 episodes

    18. Chernobyl

    HBO

    Available: season one, five episodes

    This historical drama miniseries definitely isn't lighthearted viewing, so maybe not one to watch when you're in need of a boost. However if you do feel up to it, this is a gripping dramatisation looking at the stories of the people involved in and affected by the disaster.

    19. Girls

    HBO

    Available: seasons 1-6, 62 episodes

    It follows four twentysomething friends in New York City who have no idea what they're doing with their lives (and the many mistakes they make along the way), with a focus on the main character Hannah who is financially cut off from her parents.
