When I'm very sad I have a hard time concentrating on books, so I like to watch tv to take my mind off everything. Here are some of my favorite eps to revisit when I need a break.
  1. Parks and Rec: "The Fight"
    Static
    This is the incomparable snake juice ep. In college my roommates and I would put this one on whenever one of us was having a bad day
  2. Steven Universe: "Steven and the Stevens"
    Static
    Just a whole lot of fun to watch
  3. Steven Universe: "Mindful Education"
    Static
    One of the newest episodes. Not funny but so thoughtful and all about taking a step back and a deep breath when everything feels like too much and you're falling apart
  4. Avatar: The Legend of Korra: "The Calling"
    Static
    This one makes me cry a lot. It's about Korra finally letting go of a really traumatic experience and allowing herself to heal
  5. Avatar: The Last Airbender: "The Blind Bandit"
    Static
    We meet Toph!!
  6. The OC: "The LA"
    Static
    Yo this ep is hilarious and Paris Hilton has a cameo and talks about Thomas Pynchon with Seth at a strip club and like honestly what could be better than that
  7. Arrested Development: "Good Grief!"
    Static
    The iconic Charlie Brown references
  8. Arrested Development: "Forget-Me-Now"
    Static
    Family Love Michael
  9. Planet Earth: "Fresh Water"
    Static
    This is my very favorite Planet Earth ep — all the water shots are so stunning and I find it so calming to take in the extraordinary scope and power of the fresh water on this planet. But maybe fast forward thru the terrifying giant newt things
  10. Doctor Who: "Blink"
    Static
    In my top 5 Doctor Who eps of all time, and it's a perfectly self-contained episode so if you've never seen the show before you won't be completely lost. Also Carey Mulligan!!
  11. Doctor Who: "Vincent and the Doctor"
    Static
    Just beautiful. Eleven and Amy go back to save Van Gogh from an invisible monster and it's just stunning and you'll cry
  12. Psych: "Dead Air"
    Static
    Tbh I remember nothing about this ep besides Gus being a hilarious smooth talking radio show host
  13. Veronica Mars: "Silence of the Lamb"
    Static
    We are introduced to Deputy Leo D'Amato and if he can't put a smile on your face idk what will!!
  14. Party Down: "California College Conservative Union Caucus"
    Static
    Really any Party Down ep works, but I think this one is particularly hilarious
  15. iZombie: "Grumpy Old Liv"
    Static
    Liv eats the brain of a racist old man and her interactions with Clive are incredible
  16. Flight of the Conchords: "Bowie"
    Static
    Just A+ television right here
  17. Peep Show: "University Challenge"
    Static
    The bus scene and the ancient history bit...genius
  18. Freaks and Geeks: "Looks and Books"
    Static
    Poor Sam, just trying to be a cool kid for once
  19. Veep: "Some New Beginnings"
    Static
    This is the first ep of season 3 and Selina is on a book tour and it is comedic gold
  20. X-Files - Bad Blood
    Giphy
    One of their funny stand alones where the story is told through both Mulder and Scully's points of view. Also, Luke Wilson!

  21. The Office—The Injury
    Local
    After watching this was the first time I ever realized certain episodes can be better than others.

  22. It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia - The Nightman Cometh
    Static
    I can put on basically any Sunny episode and feel better in minutes, but this one always stands out. It was the episode I showed my parents when I wanted to get them to watch the show and it worked.
