90 Shows You Should Binge Watch While Social Distancing

Now that the coronavirus pandemic has officially hit an all-time high internationally, work places and employees are implementing rules to help minimize the risk of contracting or spreading the virus. Sadly that means a lot of us have been and probably will be quarantined at one point. And if not, we’ll definitely be practicing social distancing for protective measures.

I know it’s a hard concept to grasp, what am I going to do when I’m cooped up in my home for all that time? Naturally, our generation thinks of what new shows we can binge to help pass our time, or where we can re-watch some classic favourites.

  1. Thank you for the excellent selection of series 🙂

    I watched Vampire Diaries, True Blood, Good Girls but most of all I liked “Teen Wolf” watched it with great pleasure and imbued with the characters. It’s a pity that the series is over.
