If you’ve been watching action films all your life and haven’t given comedy a chance, you’re missing out. And while comedy movies aren’t half bad, there’s something about watching sitcoms that rejuvenates the soul, and we highly recommend that you choose one that sounds right up your alley. There might not be half the action that you’re used to, but you’ll soon find yourself loving the experience and wanting to watch more sitcoms as well.
Here are some of the best that are available right now: we can vouch for them since they’re of the best quality and have the biggest fan bases which automatically makes them the go-to comedies for beginners.
Anyone who’s never watched a sitcom before should be introduced to this timeless show. Even though it has been well over a decade since the last episode was last aired, it still has a huge fan base and the fact that it’s not showing any signs of dying is just proof of how well made and memorable it is. People all over the world find themselves watching the show multiple times over, and there’s a good reason for that. This show brings the viewer back to the good old time in the 90s where a group of 6 friends live out their lives in New York. For a show with such a seemingly mundane story line (which it is – there isn’t a plot to destroy the world throughout the ten seasons), it has a way of gripping the viewer and not letting them go. You’ll find yourself immersed in the show and being concerned about what happens to each member of the cast, and that’s all thanks to the actors’ wonderful performances throughout each season.
Pretty different from the usual comedy, Family Guy is an animated series but captivating nonetheless. However, it’s not meant for everyone due to its crude humor and occasional gore. People who don’t mind these are going to love this show which follows a family in the fictional town of Quahog comprising of a regular father with a tendency to do and think stupid things, his nagging wife who stays with the family no matter how bad things get (usually), and their three children, one of whom tried to take over the world. This mixture of personalities results in some of the most hilarious situations that you could think of and coupled with 2 other families and a friend, the writers of this show target all sorts of social norms in a satirical manner. Once you start watching this show, it’s hard to stop because you’re always wondering what the writers will come up with in the next episode. It has been airing for over two decades already and is the 6th longest running show in the country as of now.
The Office (U.S.)
The Office is more recent than Friends, but it’s a wonder to watch nonetheless. Although it has a somewhat slow start, it ramps up pretty quickly and the viewer soon finds themselves involved in the matters of a bunch of people that work for a paper company. Set over a total of 9 seasons, the show revolves around an office that’s managed extremely poorly due to their manager, who has his own take on how a business should be run. He tends to put more emphasis on social gatherings than actual work, and more often than not, more work gets done in his absence. However, over the years, the group of coworkers who once didn’t care much for each other grows closer, and much of that is because of Michael Scott, their manager, who leaves them so capable that they’re able to overcome just about anything as a group. This one’s a must watch that you won’t regret!
It’s always a good time to watch a sitcom, and if you don’t like any one of these, there’s a huge list of options to choose from! Some of the shows are more recent and might match your taste if you don’t like ones that are set a few years ago. However, the ones mentioned above are classics and a huge part of pop culture, so watching them might be in your best interest.
