Supernatural

With the 15th and final season of Supernatural coming soon, there is no better time to start rewatching our favourite two brothers as they face dark supernatural forces.

Charmed

At one point, we all loved the fantasy drama following three sister witches in their quest to rid the world of evil. There is no better time to catch up on the all the battles of good and evil than when under lockdown.

Drama

Grey’s Anatomy

If you’re missing your person, then there’s no better cure than catching up on your favourite medical drama television series. Following the lives of the doctors, interns, nurses and patients at Seattle Grace Hospital (later Grey Sloan Memorial), Grey’s Anatomy is a must during lockdown. While watching the doctors perform miracles, we can’t help but feel a glimmer of hope during these worrisome times.

Our favourite episode: Season 2, episode 16 – It’s The End Of The World.

Shameless

Ten seasons on and we’re still obsessed with the comedy-drama television series that is Shameless. Depicting the story of the dysfunctional Gallagher family, this show captures the true essence of what it means to be a family, supporting each other through triumphs and setbacks – with a few laughs and plot twists along the way. If this oddball family can get through anything, then so can we.
