3 Shows to Watch on Netflix this Quarantine

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Harvard chapter.

It has been 6 weeks since I started quarantine and social distancing, and I have watched a lot of shows on Netflix to help pass the time. Here is a list of quality must-watch shows (that aren’t Tiger King or Too Hot to Handle) if you are bored and stuck at home like I am!

1. Kim’s Convenience

Kim’s Convenience is an amazing sitcom about a small Korean family who owns a convenience store in Canada. Growing up without seeing much Asian representation in shows and movies, I am super excited about Kim’s Convenience and its growing popularity. Each episode is only 20 minutes long, just short enough to keep you entertained without losing your attention. The show is simple, funny, and filled with western Korean and Asian culture!

2. The Office

As you may know, The Office is leaving Netflix in 2021 and will then thereafter be available only on NBC’s new streaming service. This is why I recommend that you watch or rewatch all the seasons before this masterpiece leaves Netflix forever. I have no words to describe this show, but the cultural impact of these short and hilarious episodes is too great for you to have never seen it. Just watch it. 

3. Ugly Delicious

Ugly Delicious is my favorite food show on Netflix right now. It follows chef Dave, who is a soon to be dad, as he tries to balance work and parenting. His goal is to learn how to make delicious and kid-friendly food. Dave is Asian American, and I love to see all the cultural influences in his recipes! This is the perfect feel-good show!

I am a senior at Harvard College studying Applied Mathematics with a specialization in Economics, and I am planning on getting a language citation in Spanish. I am currently a co-president and campus correspondent of Harvard's chapter of Her Campus! I am also a committee chair of a student organization that works with University Health Services called HealthPALs (Peer Advisors and Liaisons). Additionally, I am a member and co-director of service in OAASIS (Organization of Asian American Sisters in Service). Apart from that, I spend a lot of my time as a Learning Lab Undergraduate Fellow at the Harvard Derek Bok Center for Teaching and Learning. I am also the co-founder of a project at the Office of Diversity of Inclusion at Harvard. I am super passionate about math, health, and higher education! In my free time I love to work out, experiment with makeup and fashion, visit museums, and try new foods!
