As COVID-19 continues to keep most of us in quarantine, many have begun turning to streaming services like Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Hulu to entertain ourselves. Want a quick guide to some of my personal favorites? Here is a list of shows on Netflix and Amazon Prime, in addition to a short description of each to satisfy your search. Most of these recommendations are PG-13, but make sure to check the rating before starting a new show or movie.

 

My All-Time Favorite Show and Movie

Psych (comedy/mystery): The son of a former police officer pretends to be a psychic in order to prove his innocence and solve cases for the Santa Barbara Police Department. 

This show is my favorite—Shawn Spencer and his best friend Gus are funny and witty, and they make this show addictive for mystery and comedy fans alike. Available on Amazon Prime.

 

Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (comedy): A high school student skips school and takes his best friend and girlfriend to Chicago for an unforgettable day off. 

This movie is a classic, and the parade scene is one of my favorite movie scenes of all time. Available on Netflix.
