If what you are looking for is to have a laugh on Netflix, this is the list you were looking for. We know that there are many titles on the streaming platform and it is difficult to decide. But we give you precise reasons to make the decision much easier. And it is that all these series that we put here will make you have a good time. For different reasons, from different genres and formats. And with characters of all kinds. There is no margin for error. They are, in addition to being tremendously fun, some of the best series of the moment.
There are few things more grateful than hitting the ‘Next Episode’ button in a good comedy series after a day of hard work. And it’s not always easy to find that perfect option. For example, those who enjoy teenage scenarios and the ‘coming-of-age’ can bet on titles such as the successful ‘ Sex Education ‘, an exploration of youth from the confusion over sex and family problems, and also the recent ‘ Never have I ‘, which between joke and joke also deals with loss. If instead, you are looking for something more in the style of ‘sitcom’, the kind that gives you familiar spaces and does not move too much from there, you cannot miss the iconic ‘ Community ‘, set in a university with the most eccentric personalities, Day by day ‘, a classic situation comedy that follows a Cuban family in the United States (on top of that it features the Oscar-winning Rita Moreno from’ West Side Story ‘, which is unbeatable). And if you want more original and different proposals? We also have: don’t miss ‘ Crazy Ex Girlfriend’, which mixes comedy with musicals, and ‘ American Vandal ‘, which pokes fun at ‘true crime’ formats by creating its own in the context of youth vandalism.
What it’s about: Like its British predecessor (led by Ricky Gervais), this legendary series follows the everyday life of eccentric office workers organized by a chaotic leader ( Steve Carell ).
Why it’s worth it: For a reason, it is considered perhaps the best comedy series of all time. Or at least it is the one that has generated the most memes on social networks for years, being acclaimed by fans around the world and imitated by the series that followed it. It’s just hilarious. To not stop laughing for a second.
What’s it about: That’s the big question! ‘Seinfeld’ has become famous for being a series that really is not about anything, but it is about everything. Let’s just say: follow the daily adventures of comedian Jerry Seinfeld and his eccentric friends Elaine ( Julia Louis-Dreyfus ), Constanza ( Jason Alexander ), and Kramer ( Michael Richards ) in New York.
Why it’s worth it: Because it’s one of those comedy series with the potential to change your life. Are we exaggerating? Not at all. She is so fun, daring, intelligent, and fascinating that she will make you enter her universe and never leave. You just have to give her a chance to verify that everything good they say about her is true. And more, much more!
What’s up: It narrates the day-to-day life of a macro-family that is separated into three very different nuclei, from the marriage between Jay Pritchett ( Ed O’Neill ) and his young wife Gloria Delgado ( Sofia Vergara ), mother of Manny ( Rico Rodríguez ) to the relationship between lawyer Mitchell ( Jesse Tyler Ferguson ) and Cameron Tucker ( Eric Stonestreet ), through the family formed by Claire ( Julie Bowen ), Phil Dunphy ( Ty Burrell ) and their 3 children, Haley ( Sarah Hyland ), Alex ( Ariel Winter ) and Luke ( Nolan Gould ).All well mixed and scrambled.
Why it’s worth it: Not for nothing has it become one of the most followed and beloved series of our time, a true public success. His stories are hilarious, and his mockumentary style, in which the characters make statements on camera in their own confessionals, have left moments for history. When you see it, you will want to repeat it.
Dead To Me
What’s It About: Created by Liz Feldman, it follows a recently widowed woman, Jen ( Christina Applegate ), who isn’t as interested in getting over her loss as she is in finding out who killed her husband. In this context, Judy ( Linda Cardellini ) appears, another widow who instills him with positivity and joy, and who helps him in his research.
Why it’s worth it: Because the chemistry between Applegate and Cardellini is wonderful, and it forms the heart of a series that mixes comedy series and drama in a very balanced way. No, it may not be the series that will make you laugh out loud, but its harshest or most emotional plots do not detract from its most comical moments.
How I Met Your Mother
What it’s about: The story is narrated by Ted ( Josh Radnor ), who is telling his two sons how he met their mother. But, up to that point, life took many turns: we see the adventures of Ted and his group of friends, formed by his womanizer friend Barney ( Neil Patrick Harris ), his crush Robin ( Cobie Smulders ), and the couple formed by Lily ( Alyson Hannigan ) and Marshall (Jason Segel).
Why it’s worth it: Because it followed in the wake of ‘Friends’ with a very similar ‘sitcom’ format and a group of friends who live day to day with a great sense of humor. Thus, he ended up finding his own voice (and his fans), and now it has become one of the comic series that you would always leave on if you found it on a television channel. But why not start all over again?
The Kominsky Method
What it’s about: A veteran actor (Michael Douglas) makes a living teaching acting classes even though his own career never really got off the ground. Still, he remains in close contact with his agent and friend (Alan Arkin), who has just become a widower and sees the world as a great bottomless cesspool.
Why it’s worth it: Created by Chuck Lorre (yes, the architect behind the super successful ‘The Big Bang Theory), it is a charismatic and fun series, both adjectives also applicable to its great protagonists. Douglas and Arkin are a great duo to speak in a comedy series key of old age and life’s frustrations.
What it’s about: This comedy series plunges us into a study group at Greendale Community College, where a series of misfits and weirdos who find crazy ways to have fun end up. A class is full of different personalities and stories that unfold in the craziest and funniest ways possible.
Why it’s worth it: It’s one of the great sitcoms of our time, and it’s about time you sank your teeth into it. Not only was it an incredible quarry for great comedic actors and actresses (like Alison Brie, Donald Glover, or Gillian Jacobs), but it innovated in unexpected ways with form and narrative, with numerous chapters directed by the Russo Brothers (yes, the from ‘ Avengers: Endgame ‘) that are magnificent.
