10 Comedy TV Shows Streaming on Max You Can (And Will) Rewatch Before the Year Ends
These shows are like your best comfort food: you never get tired of them.
There are some shows that you can watch over and over again and never get tired of. Most of the time these are comedy series, of course. It's just easy to come back to something that made you feel good before, so you know you won't be disappointed. So here are ten most binge-worthy comedies to stream on Max.
If you haven't watched Friends at least five times, you probably shouldn't consider yourself a real fan. The sitcom is a cult classic that never gets old. We laugh at every joke in the show like we did the first time, and we root for Ross and Rachel like we don't know whether they'll be together in the end. The magic of the show is that it's perfect in everything: the casting choices, the detailed storylines, even the annoying parts of the show serve as a good thing.
Another easy binge-watch, although probably not that popular, is Ghosts. A British comedy series that follows a very unusual plotline. The main character, Allison, inherits a house, but she doesn’t know that it’s haunted (until she gets hit in the head and realizes). However, the ghosts are not sinister, but instead the most hilarious creatures she has ever met. Their funny interactions just make you laugh all the time during every rewatch.
3. Curb Your Enthusiasm
This show is truly unique, and once you remember that it was created by Larry David, who gave the world a masterpiece called Seinfeld, you just get ready to be blown away by the comedy. The show stars him as a fictional character based on his real life, and the most interesting thing about the series is that most of the lines are improvised by the actors. The quirky humor of the show is captivating and will keep you coming back for more.
Set in Los Angeles, the series follows the lives of Issa and Molly as they do their best to become less insecure. Two girls in their late twenties, they constantly find themselves in crazy situations where they have to prove once again that they are okay being who they are and that they are strong enough to handle all the different shenanigans that life throws at them. The story is quite relatable, that’s why fans love to revisit the show over and over again.
5. South Park
One of the most popular adult animated sitcoms is also one of the longest. We were probably in elementary school when we first heard the "Who killed Kenny?" joke. However, the storylines of the show are pretty easy to follow and overall the sitcom can be considered a fun watch. It's no wonder why fans keep rewatching the cartoon about four crazy friends.
It's probably the most bizarre show on the platform, but that's what makes fans love it. Barry is actually a mix of comedy and drama, but the funny part of the show definitely weighs more. The series centers on Barry, a low-level hitman who is desperate to start a whole new life but is haunted by his past. His struggles are what make the show so exciting and binge-worthy.
7. The White Lotus
The general opinion about this show is that it’s one of the best dark comedies released in recent years. Well, we couldn't agree more, as both seasons of the series were a complete success. Perhaps the magic of the show is that each time you rewatch it, you pick up more and more clues that you missed the first time around.
The White Lotus is the kind of series you want to start again the second it ends. And of course, the show's visuals are so fascinating that you would want to watch it at least for the beautiful landscapes.
8. Silicon Valley
Silicon Valley is a comedic look at how modern tech companies work. It follows a group of smart friends as they work together to build a successful company. Their journey is actually hilarious, even when they go through the bad stuff. And we have to say, over the course of six seasons, the guys have had their fair share of challenges.
Another adult animated sitcom that is probably one of the most popular among viewers. The twisted sci-fi cartoon focuses on family issues, as Rick is crazy enough to bring his grandchildren, Morty and Summer, along with him on his adventures. Each episode of the series makes the fans laugh with all the new bizarre stories that keep happening to them as they travel through different worlds.
Well, last but not least comes The Big Bang Theory. It doesn't matter that there are twelve seasons of the show, fans can binge it in a week and start all over again in a month. It seems that the quirky humor of the show makes it impossible for us to get enough of the silly plots and jokes that the characters give us. It's quite simple: we hear "Bazinga!" – we laugh! We hear Sheldon talk – we laugh even harder.
