We're all practicing social distancing and that means a lot of solo time, which means time to binge some Netflix shows, guilt-free! See what Netflix series our L.A. LIVE Staff recommends! 

The Circle 

Catfish meets Big Brother for this new twist on reality tv! I love a good reality tv binge – which is why The Circle was an instant fav of mine. There’s drama, comedy, and a lot of unexpected twists and turns in this gameshow fit for the social media age. It’s a must watch! - Devin P.

The Office 

If you're WFH and missing your office peeps The Office is perfect for you. Laugh as you realize how relatable this show is to anyone that works in an office, after all, we all know a Dwight! Best part, there are 9 seasons! - Richard G.

Somebody Feed Phil 

I’m always hungry and love trying new things, so a food documentary series is a no brainer for me! Somebody Feed Phil is a series about Phil Rosenthal traveling the world, meeting locals and trying authentic, local cuisine while sightseeing the city’s greatest ins and outs and learning about the culture. It’s a helpful guide for my next vacation! - Sean O.

On My Block 

If you’re looking for something that touches upon romance, comedy, and a little suspense, while all taking place in the streets of an LA neighborhood, chances are you will love On My Block. Connect with the cast as they go through similar situations that we can probably empathize with such as friendships being tested, family troubles, and somehow still managing to make it out wiser and better than before with a little comedic relief. - Taylor P. 

Long Shot 

A crazy story of a guy that was arrested for murder and builds a case for his innocence with the help of the Dodgers and the show Curb Your Enthusiasm. - Shelby R.

Workin' Moms

Don’t let the title fool you, you don’t have to be a mom to enjoy this show! Workin' Moms outlines the struggles of balancing motherhood, work, and life, in a relatable and hilarious way! Watch for a good laugh and to know that you're not alone in the struggle! - Melissa C.


This series about a stalker is pretty interesting! It'll have you questioning a few things. YOU must see it!  - Catherine B.

Brooklyn 99

It’s one of my favorite comedy shows that can get you laughing even when you’re feeling down. - Jennipher D.

Schitt$ Creek

With Friends no longer being on Netflix for a default in the background/never fail to make you laugh show…Schitt$ Creek is my second option. There are five seasons available so if you haven’t seen it, now is the time to binge.  Produced by Eugene Levy and his son, Dan Levy. - Natalie M.

Time to add all of these to your Netflix queue. Happy Watching!
