Shows to Binge Watch When You're Stuck at Home

With social distancing in full effect, and being quarantined at home, we're spending more time indoors than ever. With so many great series streaming on Amazon and Netflix, we can make the best of it by throwing on some comfy loungewear, popping up some popcorn, grabbing a coffee or cocktail, and making a night of it. I've rounded up shows I've been watching plus some of my favorite movies that I'll never tire of!

Documentaries and Series

Tiger King There are more tigers in captivity than in the wild, and this docuseries focuses on the big cat industry and the egomaniac owners that run them. 

The Stranger Based on a novel by Harlan Coben this thriller series has lots of plot twists with each episode zooming out until the story finally unwinds. 

The Staircase A true crime documentary following novelist Michael Peterson, convicted of murdering his wife, and his two-decade battle with the justice system. 

Black Mirror sci-fi anthology series that examines modern society and the consequences of technology. It reminds me of a modern-day Twilight Zone. 

Goop Lab Behind the scenes of Gweneth Paltrow's wellness company, Goop, that has faced criticism for misleading marketing around products. 

Jack Ryan Political spy thriller series based on characters created by Tom Clancy. Jack Ryan is a CIA analyst launched into the center of a dangerous field assignment.

Hannah - Coming of age thriller about a girl raised in the forest in Poland by her father and her pursuit to find out the truth behind who she is.

Dirty Money  This series tells stories of corporate corruption, securities fraud, and creative accounting. 

Dead to Me I'm a huge Christina Applegate fan, and she plays a recently widowed real estate agent trying to come to terms with the loss of her husband, who was killed in a hit and run accident. She's on a mission to fund out who did it as another story unfolds along the way.
