We all love a good television program as a way to unwind and disconnect from the stresses of everyday life. And as streaming services continue to replace cable TV, we don’t have to wait an entire week for the next episode. We can grab a blanket and a snack and watch 15 episodes in one sitting if we really want to. The hardest part is deciding what to watch out of the five gazillion programs on Netflix, Hulu, HBO and so on.
As a result, we decided to poll the #hyggefam to see what shows our community currently feels passionate about. The list covers a broad range of topics and genres, so give it a browse and pick a couple to add to your queue.
