The best TV shows to binge while at home

An article from Thrillist outlined shows with over 100 episodes to watch while practicing social distancing.

MINNEAPOLIS — With an increasing amount of people working from home and practicing social distancing, many are wondering what to do with their time. If you have access to any streaming services, television shows can be a great, fun, and cheap way to pass the time. 

To keep us all closer, Netflix has found a way to bring us together while still helping us practice social distancing. They've launched a Google chrome extension called "Netflix Party" - where you can watch shows with your friends virtually. The extension also comes with a chatroom, so you can share your reactions as you watch.

Thanks to Universal, you'll be able to stream some movies that are still in theaters. Starting Friday, recently released films like The Invisible Man and The Hunt will be available to digitally rent. Universal is also releasing Trolls World Tour for home viewing on April 10th.

Thrillist compiled a list of shows to watch with over 100 episodes available on various streaming services for your viewing pleasure.
