As cities all over the world come to a standstill, there has never been a better time to (finally) catch up on those shows you’ve been lying to your coworkers about having already seen.

Forget toilet paper, its time to stock up on popcorn and quarantine yourself to the couch with these binge-able series.

Twin Peaks (1990)

With bare supermarket shelves and quiet, ghostly streets, it already feels like we are living in a Lynchian alternate universe. So it should come as no surprise that Twin Peaks is up first.

Combining the murder of a teenage homecoming queen with surreal, supernatural twists, this 90s masterpiece is simply required viewing.

With two full seasons, a movie and a star-studded 2017 revival, what are you waiting for? It’s time to get weird.

Breaking Bad (2008)

If you are looking for a show that will have you hooked from episode one, this is the show for you.

Also applicable if you ever considered a career as a chemistry teacher turned drug lord.

Follow Walter White through five seasons (and a movie) as he navigates a double life as a family man and narcotics king.
