Welcome back to school, bulls! As the new semester kicks off with all new classes and challenges, it is important to have a solid list of Netflix and Hulu shows to decompress after a long day of studying. Let’s jump into it!

“It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” (Hulu)

The sitcom details the adventures of a group of friends that own a bar and make very bad decisions. If you have ever doubted your own morality, rest assured you will see yourself as a good person after watching this chaotic bunch.

“New Girl” (Netflix)

This show is about quirky girl Jess as she learns to get along with her three male roommates, who have equally big personalities. You will fall in love with all of the characters and find yourself invested in the show!

“Love Island (UK)” (Hulu)

Yeah, you probably heard about it all summer, but as far as ridiculous reality television goes, this show definitely outshines the rest. Imagine British accents, self-centered social media influencers and a whole lot of drama all wrapped up into one show. Oh, and lots of abs and bikinis. How can you resist!?

“Schitt’s Creek” (Netflix)

A little bit lesser known, this Canadian sitcom is as funny as it is poignant. The pilot starts off with a rich family losing everything they own and being stranded in a tiny rural town and learning to adapt to a life of much less extravagance. Every character has a big personality and ways of getting themselves into hilarious situations.

“Broad City” (Hulu)

If I had to count on my fingers the amount of male-centric comedy shows I’ve digested, I would most definitely need more hands. “Broad City” is centered around two women living in New York City and feels like a breath of fresh air to me. Ilana and Abbi are best friends and find themselves in the wildest predicaments as they navigate the world together.

“Patriot Act” (Netflix)

Comedian Hasan Minhaj tackles big issues in this stand-up show. Each episode is a new topic, from Big Pharma to student loans to Saudi Arabia, and it proves to be equally funny as it is educational. Watching this show is a great way to learn something new and get a laugh out of it too!

Hopefully you don’t burn through this list too quickly!
