The coronavirus has put a wrench in many of our plans, as major large events like Coachella and Stagecoach and many movies including No Time to Die and A Quiet Place II have been canceled or delayed, and theme parks have been temporarily closed.

But if you’re under quarantine, or you’re just trying to avoid crowds, now’s the perfect time to finally watch those Netflix shows you’ve been meaning to catch up on. These are the must-watch shows that everyone’s been talking about.

Love Is Blind

We were skeptical of this reality television show, but as soon as we watched the first episode, we were instantly hooked! You may be confined to the walls of your home, but the people on this show found love the same way.

The men and women on the show get to know each other by talking through a wall of frosted glass. They then must decide (without actually seeing each other) if their emotional connection is worth proposing to the other person. Only after they decide if they want to marry the other person that they get to finally see them. Then they must say “I do” within four weeks. You’ll be surprised at what relationships answer the question “Is love actually blind?”

Person of Interest

The CBS drama was recently added to Netflix, and it comes from the mind behind Westworld, Jonathan Nolan. Person of Interest ran for five seasons, following Harold Finch (Michael Emerson), a billionaire genius who creates an artificial intelligence surveillance system known as the Machine, as he works with an ex-CIA agent (Jim Caviezel) and NYPD detective (Taraji P. Henson) to stop crimes.


If you’re looking for a thriller, check out You starring Pen Badgley, who plays a bookshop manager leading a double life as a serial killer. He becomes obsessed with his love interests and uses social media and the internet to stalk his prey. He also gets rid of any person that gets in the way of his happy ending.

The second season is just as gripping as the first, when viewers are introduced to his new obsession Love (Victoria Pedretti). Has Joe finally met his match? Will he be able to control his urges to be with his soul mate? You’ll have to watch You to find out!
