The best way to keep you and your family safe from the coronavirus is to stay home for at least the next two weeks. Here are some shows you can binge-watch in the meantime.

Documentary Now!

 Written by Fred Armisen, Bill Hader and Seth Meyers, IFC’s “Documentary Now!” Parodies popular documentaries and documentary series like “Wild Wild Country,” “Salesman” and “The War Room.” Each episode tackles a different documentary, starring Armisen and Hader as the leads, with guest stars like John Mulaney and HAIM.


 “Portlandia” on IFC is a sketch comedy show set in Portland, Oregon, starring Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein with a regular set of secondary cast members. The show is a satirical representation of stereotypes surrounding the eccentric city and its citizens. Full of exaggerated characters and unrealistic sound effects, “Portlandia” is a great show to distract from the coronavirus frenzy.

Dirty Money 

Netflix Original “Dirty Money” investigates the effects of corporate greed and corruption in its two-season run. Big Pharma, pollution and big banks are among the topics tackled by this series.

Next in Fashion

 Hosts Tan France of “Queer Eye” and fashion icon Alexa Chung’s Netflix Original series “Next in Fashion” is a fashion series much like “Project Runway” where 18 contestants compete to get their designs seen and their fashion careers to advance. 

On My Block

Netflix Original “On My Block” follows a group of friends navigating their way through high school, facing some obstacles along the way. As their friendships are tested, they are confronted by the reality of adolescence and life.
