I'm not ashamed to say I burnt through all 10 seasons in less than a month.

I know a lot of people love this show. Looks so dumb! And that is some serious binge watching

Good call with trailer park boys. I forgot about that show but it is really funny if you've never seen it

Get out of there with that! 40 minute timeslots are reserved for dramas

It is really dumb - that's the best part. It's one of those shows you can blankely stare at and still laugh.

I still think You're the worst is fantastic. You should watch that.

It gets really dark around season 2 though, still funny.

We liked the pilot of You're the Worst...i think? We will probably finish Not Safe with Niki Glaser this week since it was a short first season.

You said it was too 'raunchy'. Pfft. For being a comedy though (real talk), it has some of the best TV around depression I've ever seen (Season 2).

I watched the pilot of You're the Worst and I didn't like it. Maybe I should give it another chance? Probably won't.

If you just want some laughs, no story or plot to think about, you could always get Who's Line is it Anyways. There's like 14 seasons or something. I sometimes just have it on for background noise while doing other things instead of music.

This makes me laugh every time...

Oh man, I used to watch Who's Line all the time when I was younger. I was always amazed at how quickly they could come up with that stuff.

Bumping this thread. A couple days a week at work I will watch a 22 minute show during lunch. I am going to finish up Bojack next week and need something new.

I watched Big Mouth on Netflix. It's an animated show by Nick Kroll. Pretty much a group of kids experiencing puberty. There's only one season (10 episodes). It's not safe for work, but it had some decent laughs.

I've been watching "Parks and Rec" on Netflix. I love the dry humor and the characters. I laugh out loud at every episode!

I sit in the corner and hide the screen. I'll check it out. F is for Family is another adult Netflix show, worth watching?

I would rather revisit Parks and Rec than The Office for sure.
