The Office, as the name suggests is a sitcom about the daily lives of certain employees working in a fictional company called the Dundler Mifflin Paper Company. The amazing Steve Carrel, as Michael Scott, is the star of the show, although the rest of the cast is spectacular as well. This show is extremely famous, and if you still have not watched it, we think it is time. It is not only a sitcom, but somewhat of a mockumentary as well, making it seem like as much of a real documentary as possible, and you are going to love every second of it. And with each episode barely twenty to twenty-five minutes long, you will love binge watching it, and fall in love with the characters as fast as we did.
3. Rick and Morty
No. of seasons : 3
This one is a bit different from the rest of the shows in this list because it is animated, but that does not mean it is not equally better. Following the adventures of a good-hearted boy Morty Smith and his grandfather, who is nothing less than a cynically mad scientist, Rick Sanchez. They go on some amazing inter-dimensional adventures, whilst balancing their domestic lives. Now if you are wondering it is a kids’ show, trust us when we say this, it is nowhere close. A mad and alcoholic scientist, going on some futuristic adventures with his 14 years old grandson, is funnier than you can think and this is one of the most enjoyed shows by our generations.

It revolves around the various cases as well as sometimes their personal lives, with each character having their unique quirks and talents. This is one of the most acclaimed shows currently, and we highly recommend you to watch it. Every episode is equally, if not funnier than the other, and may even leave you clutching your stomach and gasping for air at certain moments, with it being a new twist to the usual cop shows.
