What Show to Stream Based on Your Quarantine Routine

what show to stream

It’s been more than two months since many of the stay-at-home orders across the U.S. began. Many of us are at home, and we have more free time than we know what to do with. Some have used the newfound time to explore hobbies or catch up on work. And some, like me, have caught up on the TV they didn’t get to watch before. With Netflix pumping out new shows to keep people from going stir crazy, now is the best time to grab some popcorn, get comfortable, and binge a TV series for more hours than anybody should admit.

Netflix is a seemingly endless source of content, and there is surely something for everyone. Whether you like nail-biting dramas, cringe-inducing comedies, guilty pleasure reality shows, or stranger-than-fiction documentaries, you will inevitably find something to pique your interest.

But, if you don’t feel like wasting your time scrolling through Netflix’s infinite categories, take this quiz to see which show matches your quarantine personality.
