Need a new show to see after seeing Grey’s Anatomy for the fifth straight year? Here are options for your new procrastination session spread across different streaming services in case your sister-in-law stops paying for the Disney + subscription.


“Dopesick” is an eight-part series based on the book of the same name by Beth Macy and revolves around the opioid crisis of the 1990s. Each episode is the length of a chemistry class – the perfect time to keep the audience busy. “Dopesick” can be streamed on Hulu.

“The great”

“The Great” is a satirical reenactment of the reign of Catherine the Great, a late 18th century Russian empress, that recreates her hilarious rise to power. This show is full of comedy and (sometimes true) historical facts that are perfect for your next break from college. “The Great” can be streamed on Hulu.

“Gossip aunt”

Do you need a drama in your life without actually being involved in a drama? This is the show for you. Imagine showing your dirty laundry to the public on an intricately written blog or post on Instagram. Glamor, designer clothes, huge parties and of course gossip are everyday features of these New York private students. Both the 2007 original and the 2021 reboot can be streamed – nothing but fashion has changed. “Gossip Girl” can be streamed on HBO Max.

“The Nanny”

The show’s theme song sells this show in the highest order. The catchy tune captivates viewers in all six seasons of this stylish nanny in Manhattan in the 90s. “The Nanny” is streamed on HBO Max.

“Ted Lasso”

At a time when aggression and violence plague our screens, here is a breath of fresh air with healthy vibes from Ted Lasso, a former American football coach who trains for a football team in the UK on this optimism underdog story. “Ted Lasso” can be streamed on Apple TV.


Gossip Girl viewers will recognize the protagonist of this show. Joe Goldberg is a bookstore manager with a dark secret – cycling through obsessions with women he sees as attractive and in need of help. In this series, Joe takes “love” to a whole new level. This psychological thriller can make viewers think more carefully about what they are posting on social media. “You” is available to stream on Netflix.

“The secrets of the sulfur springs”

Although this show is aimed at younger audiences, the solid storyline of this series also draws older viewers in. The protagonists have to solve a riddle that happened decades ago in their small country town. The show brings the fun and unknown childhood adventure to your screen. The Secrets of Sulfur Springs is available as a stream on Disney Plus.


What better combination than lifelong best friends, crime, and false psychological powers. I’ll wait. This show rounds up the various antics of Shawn and Gus helping the Santa Barbara Police Department solve cases in unconventional ways, using strange and ironically sometimes illegal sources to extract information resulting in an exuberant “psychic” re-enactment of the Crime to be passed on. The winter break is just long enough to accommodate all eight seasons of comedy and mystery. “Psych” can be streamed on Amazon Prime Video.

“Anne with E”

Based on Lucy Maud Montgomery’s classic Anne of Green Gables, this Canadian adaptation effectively captures the book as it was told, highlighting the successes and struggles Anne Shirley-Cuthbert faced during her time at Green Gables. This show describes the life of the quirky and elegant orphan Anne, whose adoptive parents originally sent for a boy but received her instead, and how she finds her way as a carefree ghost in a stuffy country town. “Anne with an E” can be streamed on Netflix.
