It takes a whole lot of patience and brainpower to ride with shows like Breaking Bad, Mad Men, and Game of Thrones, TV’s most challenging, and, subsequently, rewarding, dramas. The plotlines are intricately complex, the numerous characters are deeply layered, and the stories feel all the more demanding when given week-long gaps between new episodes. Hence, trying to catch up with one of television’s best 50-or-so-minute dramas (commercial breaks not included) on DVDs or Netflix streaming can be a very time-consuming process.
Sitcoms and others kinds of funny boob-tube programs, however, are much easier to handle. It’s not that the characters on shows like Parks and Recreation and Louie don’t embark on streamlined journeys in any given season—the thing is, lighter series of their nature are, by nature, situational. The laughs mostly come from in-the-moment reactions and random occurrences that lead into punch line payoffs.
So don’t feel intimidated by The 25 Best Comedy TV Shows Streaming On Netflix Right Now at all. Enjoy them at your own leisure, and let the belly laughs roll.
