As we approach month 4 of Quarantine, many people might be (or already have) running out of shows to binge.
One of the first articles for GoodBadEh was a Fall 2019 TV to Watch. It was there that I highlighted shows such as Superstore, The Morning Show, and Dickinson.
Now I am back to give your watchlist some extra juice to help you through however longer we have until we can resume our normal lives!
Available on Netflix and Hulu
This is my favorite show of all time. No doubt about it.
If you are a fan of pop-culture references, amazing characters, great character progression and just the most weird sitcom you could ever imagine, look no further than Community.
Once started on NBC, Community is about a group of 7 Community College students, all from different life backgrounds, as they come together to survive Greendale and the chaos that will ensue.
With the incredible cast including: Joel McHale, Allison Brie, Donald Glover, Danny Pudi, Gillian Jacobs, Yvette Nicole Brown, Ken Jeong, Jim Rash and chevy chase. (I left his name uncapitalized on purpose), this group will take you on an incredible story which will make you laugh, cry and wish you went to this community college in Colorado.
While it wasn’t that successful when it ran on NBC and the short-lived Yahoo! Screen, the show has had a cult following since it came on air with the long-living battlecry of #SixSeasonsAndAMovie.
And when you are finished with the 6 seasons available, you can then check out The Darkest Timeline Podcast hosted by Ken Jeong and Joel McHale! Together they talk about COVID-19 and then delve into fun Community stories and occasionally bring on some special guests!
With it’s recent addition to Netflix (it has been on Hulu for a while), the surge and hopes for that movie have gotten stronger.
Mythic Quest: Raven’s Banquet
Available on Apple TV+
If you are a fan of video games like I am and have been searching for a good show that gives us a non-dramatized look at the industry we love, Mythic Quest: Raven’s Banquet is for you!
Created by Rob McElhenney, Charlie Day and Megan Ganz, this show is about a game development studio as they continue to add content and a brand new expansion to their very popular MMO, Mythic Quest.
With a cast lead by McElhenney, David Hornsby, Charlotte Nicdao, Danny Pudi and more, this show has all characters interacting with each other, each relationship more different than the next.
It isn’t as crazy as It’s Always Sunny, but the cast of characters and how they take on the video game world is a breathe of fresh air that packs a bunch of laughs. Whether it’s trying to impress their number one Twitch streamer, addressing women in the workplace and going to a streamer convention, you will watch all of these episodes and feel satisfied once you finish the season.
The star of the show is McElhenney’s character Ian Grimm, the creative director of the game. His ego is bigger than anyone else’s and it SHOWS! His interactions with his colleagues in the workplace are always scenes that you crave and want more of.
What is even better about Mythic Quest, is that they just released a Quarantine episode that brings the laugh and really shows how incredible these characters are.
Mythic Quest: Raven’s Banquet has already been announced for a second season, which we do not know the release date of due to the scheduling being interrupted by COVID-19.
Available on Disney+
To round out another trio of show suggestions, let’s head to Disney+.
Since the finales of The Mandalorian and High School Musical: The Musical: The Series, Disney+ hasn’t really been providing much original content that appeals to me personally.
This changed earlier this month when they released the full season of Prop Culture.
This show follows prop collector, Dan Lanigan, as he explores the Disney Archives and brings some classic Disney props to the forefront and reacquaints them with stars of that film.
There are 8 episodes, each one focusing on a different film. Such films featured in the series are Mary Poppins, The Nightmare Before Christmas and The Muppet Movie.
Join Dan as he will show off some famous props from the movies, and give us some new knowledge about the item from the cast and crew of those movies.
As a big Disney fan, this was a lot of fun to watch. It was very interesting to see the Disney Archive building and how large it is, as well as seeing certain props that have been in hiding since the movie filming ended.
We are unsure if Prop Culture will receive a second season, but if they do, I really hope they look at some of the props from National Treasure and National Treasure: Book of Secrets.
I do hope that the shows listed above will bring you entertainment for the rest of your Quarantine. If you have any shows that you recommend people watch, tweet them at GoodBadEh!
As always, be safe!
