Top 4 Netflix Sitcoms to Watch in Your Spare Time

19 May 2022

Do you know it takes about 43 muscles to frown and just 17 to smile? That’s fascinating! Simply put, smiling is a lot easier than frowning.

So, why not do your face some good by wearing a smile from time to time? It will keep you bubbling and in good spirits. If you have been feeling overwhelmed lately, please take away that tense feeling by kicking back and putting on an interesting show to give you a few laughs.

Netflix has a whole lot of sitcoms that will crack you up, but surely, you don’t want to spend hours searching for the perfect one to watch – that’s stress all over again.

Luckily, we have reviewed 4 of the best comedy shows on the popular streaming service that will make you split your sides laughing and keep you glued to the screen for a long time. Without further ado, let us get right to these shows.

1. Seinfeld (1989-1998)

Dubbed the ‘show about nothing,’ Seinfeld is one of the greatest sitcoms of all time – if not the greatest! Set in 1990s New York, this sitcom revolves around four friends, Jerry, George, Elaine, and Kramer, who tackle daily life issues in their unique way.

Some events may be unconventional in this show, but this even made it special. The clean, organized, and fit Jerry is close friends with his ex-girlfriend Elaine, who struggles to keep meaningful relationships throughout the series. Staying friends with your ex isn’t realistic, but Seinfeld made it work somehow.

Although Seinfeld’s first two seasons were not up to snuff, they raised the bar a lot higher in the subsequent series. This show has since gone on to influence popular culture in so many ways and even reinvent American sitcoms.

Get your popcorn ready and start bingeing this exciting show!

2. The Big Bang Theory (2007-2019)

Netflix recently paid a whopping $1billion for streaming rights to over 300 episodes of the Big Bang Theory – Yes, the show is that massive! Fans had been clamouring for the streaming giants to bring the show to their platform, and they will be excited to see their favourite TV characters again.

Despite being very annoying and self-centred, Sheldon is a fan favourite. Throughout the show, he somehow maintains a great relationship with roommate Leonard, neighbour Penny, and friends Howard and Raj.

He’s a theoretical physicist and genius who cannot quite get to grips with the intricacies of social interactions. You will enjoy journeying with Sheldon and friends as they try to balance their largely inadequate social life with their much more decent work and academic careers. For Penny, it’s the opposite.

Although the Big Bang Theory is an excellent show, some criticize it for being too science-oriented. This may be true for the first two seasons, but the rest of the sitcom is very relatable to science and non-science-inclined audiences.

3. Brooklyn Nine-Nine (2013-2021)

This sitcom tackles several political and cultural issues throughout its running. Follow the lives of a team of detectives and Captain Raymond Holt at the 99th precinct of the NYPD as they go through the rigours of personal, work, and social lives.

The goofy Jake Peralta will always drop some witty lines to crack you up as he tracks down leads to solve crime in Brooklyn. The show will leave you pining for a relationship between Jake and his colleague, Amy. But we will let you find out the outcome of this love tale on your own – no spoilers.

Rosa Diaz is a badass, scary detective who is the primary love interest of a more reserved Charles Boyle. Gina Linetti is a joy to behold. She just carries some charm about her that is sure to intoxicate you.

Begin watching Brooklyn 99 to get a unique perspective of the life of the average American cop.

4. Friends (1994-2004)

If we fail to add this to the list, a good number of people will be left annoyed, and we wouldn’t even blame them. Just as the name suggests, Friends is mainly about a group of five friends who manage to get by differently.

Perhaps, the beauty of this sitcom is that it is very relatable to almost everyone – going through young adulthood without really knowing our best path. That said, the show is quite unrealistic as it features these friends, who cannot get on their wrong sides. They are always on good terms. Is that even possible in reality?

However, since it is a comedy show, it can be forgiven for being a little quirky. Monica, Ross, Rachael, Chandler, and Joey are waiting for you to relive their experiences as they navigate the hassles of everyday life.

Final Thoughts

These are four of the best comedy shows to watch on Netflix at the moment, and you shouldn’t waste any second before you begin to watch them. Start bingeing now!

That said, these are fascinating shows, and once you begin watching them, you may struggle to take your eyes away, even for a second. Note that it isn’t healthy to maintain the same position for too long.
