    I’ve been streaming a lot, like everyone else, and need more suggestions.
    I like quirky, funny comedies like Schitts Creek, New Girl, Brooklyn 99, and some unusual stuff like Umbrella Academy. Loved Cobra Kai, hated The Witcher.
    Love sitcoms like Big Bang Theory, Friends, Cheers, Mom, Young Sheldon.
    I’m really looking for a good escape, preferably something to make me laugh and forget about the world’s woes for a bit.
    So, what would you suggest I binge next?

    Depends on what services you have, really, given the Balkanization of streaming platforms over the past 24 months.

    Star Trek: Lower Decks runs its final episode tomorrow, then all ten will be available for streaming. Lots of fun, if you don't take your Star Trek too seriously.

    If you have Apple+, I highly recommend Ted Lasso. It's GREAT.

    If you like quirky Canadian comedies like Schitt's Creek, take a look at Corner Gas. I find it to be better than Schitt's Creek, but lesser known, but it was a big success in Canada during its initial run. It was popular enough that they had an animated series made.

    Curb Your Enthusiasm is brilliant.

    The League is pretty damn funny.

    I just put Kim’s Convenience on my list. I’ll watch that as soon as possible.

    I LOVED The Good Place.

    Kim’s Convenience was a great suggestion. Been watching it all day. Thanks. At this rate I’ll need some new suggestions soon.

    Bob's Burgers. Every episode is a classic.

    Pretty much every Trek series that has ever existed or ever will exist

    And while this is not streaming, as such: Kittisaurus videos.

    I would actually disagree with that and say that it's another textbook example of a sitcom (not unlike The Office or Parks & Rec) that needed and received some retooling and overhauling between its first and second seasons. I can't sit through first-season Bob's Burgers, in large part because all of the characters are just raging assholes. The second season picks up considerably, though.

    The only sitcom I ever got into was The Red Green Show.

    Normally, any show that uses a laugh track - even if it's a live studio audience - is an automatic turn-off for me. Red Green is different, because the audience is literally part of the show - characters speak directly TO the audience, who often shout things right back. And sometimes audience members even appear in the show!
