Presenting the best garbage TV to watch while quarantined

  • "Whether you’re currently sheltering at home, limiting your time outdoors, or self-isolating, you’ve probably eyed that untouched stack of books in your living room as a nice possible distraction from the world," says Catie Keck. "More likely, though, you’ve exhausted your favorite binge-watches and are looking for something new to stream to keep busy. At this point, you may even be considering some dystopian thrillers. I know my friends have started recommending them. But, dear reader, I strongly advise against watching Contagion or similar pandemic-related works of fiction—which are mostly trash but not the kind of trash you need right now. My advice is to use your entertainment time budget for some dumpster-tier reality television. And to make this mind-numbing escapism as easy as possible, I’ve put together six distinct profiles of trash TV viewers, along with show recommendations and where to stream them." Among her garbage TV recommendations are Man vs. Wild, Unsolved Mysteries, 90 Day Fiancé and Dr. Pimple Popper. ALSO: Here are 100 shows to keep you busy while social distancing.
