Laughter is the instrument through which express a number of emotions: happiness, joy, hysteria, and even sadness (don’t ask me, the situation was awkward as hell). I am not a doctor so I don’t understand the mechanism of the process, but I know for a fact that when you are laughing you use 20 or so face muscles on your face. 

Almost everybody, at least once in their life, has felt sincere joy. That thing you feel when you’re laughing with your friends or family members that you haven’t seen for a long time. Making jokes about everything; you’re talking, sharing the best memories and funny stories; it restores a life energy and brings a sense of relief and calm to your body. 

This isn’t a research work for some doctor’s magazine, but a list of TV series that will make you share a wide range of joy with characters on the screen, and laugh every drop out of yourself.

Enjoy every minute and share your thoughts about the list with us.

Dead To Me

It’s a dark comedy TV series from Netflix created by Liz Feldman. Critics and users on Rotten Tomatoes have awarded the first season 86% and the second season a tough 95%. You can read Critics Consensus,Dead to Me doesn’t always deliver on the gallows humor that it promises, but the sterling duo of Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini elevates the series above its pulpier aspects – offering a deeply moving relationship shaped by mutual grief.”

Dead To Me is a perfect choice for people who find the mix of dark humor and tearful storytelling to be sophisticated. The story depicts the friendship between the free-spirited woman with a hidden skeleton and a tightly wound widow. It’s an example of when an inner magnet unites two personalities which are totally opposite to each other.

The Good Place

I like this one a lot. It’s a story about Eleanor Shellstrop (Kristen Bell) who’s the main character of the series. Due to some reasons, she arrives at the afterlife where mighty forces send her to the area she’s welcomed to feel comfort. This area is “the good place”, aka heaven, and it’s a reward for Eleanor’s righteous life. Somewhere in her mind, Eleanor understands that it was a strict mistake and she belongs to “the bad place”, aka hell. During the show she tries to hide her alter ego and become a better person. 

People on Rotten Tomatoes appreciate the light humor mixed with the philosophical questions the TV series raises and gave the first season 92%.

The Marvellous Mrs Meisel

This is a comedy-drama web TV series where you can fully take advantage of your emotions, you need to be sensitive while watching it. The story is about a woman – Miriam “Midge” Maisel – who lives in a kind of shelter which is called the american dream. She’s got everything she wanted: a perfect husband, two kids, an elegant apartment. Seems like a perfect comfort zone, but in good ol’ TV tradition, everything changes when the character starts to feel a sense of rebellion inside. In this story, Midge discovers a previously unknown talent that becomes the accelerator for changes in her life.

Critics Consensus on Rotten Tomatoes says: “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is an upbeat addition to Amazon’s original offerings, propelled by a playful yet poignant performance by Rachel Brosnahan.” The score is 94% for the first season.

The Politician 

Payton Hobart – the main character – seems to suffer from his burning ambition and unconditional desire to become president. Everything starts from the least, and before he becomes the country’s president, he needs to achieve success in the High School elections. To my mind, the idea of this TV series doesn’t have the double bottom but wants to demonstrate the real elections in a beta, simplified, version.

Critics on Rotten Tomatoes have shown no mercy to the show and have given it 57%, though the audience score is much better 86%. 

Never Have I Ever

No, no, keep calm, it is not the game but an American coming-of-age drama TV series created by Mindy Kaling and Lang Fisher. This creation helped to step over Asian stereotypes and has been described as a watershed moment for South Asian representation in Hollywood.

Devi Vishwakumar (Maitreyi Ramakrishnan) has the leading role in Netflix TV series. She’s a 15-year-old girl who lives in California and comes up against a natural confrontation of her desires and feelings that are based on her previous experience as a freshman. Never Have I Ever is a life period when trouble doesn’t come alone, and the main character faces a bitter destiny, tough relationships at school, and at home. 

The Tomatometer score is 96% for the show, with critics and audience commenting that the show delivers a fresh feeling of comedy and drama simultaneously. A little bit predictable, but only in terms of teen relationships and parental conflicts.
