Quarantine Weekend Streaming Binges

Looking for some new streaming binges to get you through the weekend? Look no further. Here are a few of my top picks to get you through.

Documentaries/Docuseries

Tiger King
Your social media streams have been blowing up with talk of this and, for a very good reason. This docuseries is, on its face, about people who own exotic animal zoos and preserves. But it’s so, so much more and if I tried to describe the scenerios you would still need to watch it to believe it all.

Available on Netflix

Cats_the_Mewvie

Cats are ubiquitous on the internet for bringing LOLs but how did that happen? This quirky documentary explores the history of Internet cat memes and the Instagram influencer culture.

Available on Netflix

Catwalk
If you thought dog show people were crazy, just watch this.

Available on Netflix

Cheer
This is one of those docuseries where you fall in love with the characters and want the best for them. We all need a little Jerry in our lives right now.

Available on Netflix

Bogalusa Charm

Yes, THAT Bogalusa. This documentary, made by someone who grew up in Bogalusa, gives the history of the town and looks at the social class divide.

Available on Hulu

Quirky Binges

Derry Girls
Made in Ireland and set in the 1990s, this show follows a group of Catholic school girls and the hysterical scenerios they find themselves in. Best watched with captions on until you get a feel for the accents.

Available on Netflix

Workin’ Moms
This Canadian drama-comedy follows a group of women from maternity leave back into the workforce and the challenges they face balencing motherhood and careers.

Available on Netflix

Schitt’s Creek
Been wondering what the “Ew! Covid!” memes are about? Watch what happens to the Rose family when they lose their fortune and end up living in a motel in a town that they somehow own, and have to interact with normal people in a spectacularly out of touch way.

Available on Netflix

Samantha!
This is a Brazilian comedy about Samantha, a former child star who is trying to find her way back into the spotlight at almost 40. Add in two kids who are mortified by their mother’s antics, and a former soccer star ex-husband who just got out of jail and it adds up to a ridiculous comedy. Unless you speak Portugese, subtitles are a requirement.

Available on Netflix

Shows you can watch over and over

The Office
This series just celebrated it’s 15th anniversary this week and it’s still funny. If you haven’t watched in awhile, give it a re-watch. 2008 Scranton is a safe place.

Available on Netflix

Community
Quirky and under-rated at the time, this show follows a group of non-traditional community college students. Bonus reason to watch: it’s the birthplace of the “I’ll allow it” meme.

Available on Hulu

Parks & Rec
It’s nice to live in a world with Leslie Knope and Ron Swanson in charge, even if it’s only for 22 minutes at a time.

Available on Netflix

30 Rock
Fast and farcical, Tina Fey’s comedy about a Saturday Night Live-like show is a funny reprieve from real life.

Available on Hulu

Seinfeld
You’ve probably seen every episode about 10 times and, at this point, some things are hilariously dated. But, right now, a show about nothing is pretty comforting.

Available on Hulu

Hi, I'm Aimée, the Special Projects Coordinator for Northshore Parent. If there's a fun giveaway, a kids' clothing review, or a special event, there's a good chance that I'm responsible. I'm a lifelong resident of St. Tammany (except for time at LSU for undergrad and law school) and a mom to 3 little ones, ages 6, 6 (yes, they are twins, and no, they are not identical) and 2. Thanks for reading Northshore Parent and being a part of our community.
