9 Super-Distracting Shows and Movies to Watch Right Now
In this age of social distancing, keeping oneself (and one's family) entertained at home is both necessary and nearly impossible. The fact that we have a huge variety of streaming services at our disposal to keep us distracted, entertained, and maybe even informed for hours at a time is definitely a positive, but when you consider the decision paralysis of actually picking one of the millions of TV shows and movies out there, that positive doesn't seem so great.
There are always the best shows on Netflix or the best things on Disney+, but they aren't always the shows or movies that suit the current mood. Also, with new series and films constantly rising to the top of pop culture conversations, keeping up with what's new and fresh takes its own effort.
Good news: In addition to the soothing shows on Netflix to watch when you're stuck at home, we've rounded up buzzy, distracting shows and movies to watch on all the streaming services. Whether you're wondering what to watch on Hulu or you're a die-hard HBO subscriber, these series and movies will keep you entertained—for a few hours, at least—and in-the-know on the top shows right now. On your next digital happy hour or virtual game night, you'll be throwing out the Westworld references and Cheer jokes with the best of them.
