Because of Corona, we usually sit at home. It is best to take a mental dive in between. This feel-good series could help.

The corona pandemic has Germany firmly under control, avoiding contacts is important – and staying at home. Is the camp fever looming? It can help to take a mental journey – ideally with the help of the series world, which has a lot in store for you to feel good.

Probably the most popular mother-daughter duo

The "Gilmore Girls" are a television phenomenon. All seven seasons and the four extra episodes of "A New Year" are currently available on Netflix. The mother-daughter duo Lorelai (Lauren Graham) and Rory (Alexis Bledel) Gilmore have a very special bond. Single parent Lorelai, pregnant at 16, broke away from her wealthy parents to raise Rory without their influence. But when her intelligent and inquisitive daughter has the opportunity to attend a renowned private school, Lorelai needs the help of her parents. In addition to the interpersonal relationships, the series scores with bizarre characters and events in the fictional town of Stars Hollow. There is hardly a more comfortable atmosphere.

If you want to be catapulted into a completely different time, you can also watch the cast of Ashton Kutcher, Mila Kunis, Topher Grace and Laura Prepon in eight seasons on Netflix, what it was like to grow up in the 1970s . Stylish clothes and crazy hairstyles included.

The most bizarre family ever

The long-running cartoon series: "The Simpsons" have flickered on TV screens since 1989 and delight an audience of millions worldwide. So far, 30 seasons are available on the Disney + streaming service and thus enable the journey back to the beginnings of Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie in over 600 episodes. What moved the Simpson family in the 80s, 90s and 2000s?

The most famous clique in the world

It is the cult sitcom par excellence: "Friends". The ten seasons are exclusively available on Amazon Prime Video in this country. A special with Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer is planned for the new streaming service HBO Max. However, it won't be a classic sequel to the sitcom. For the first time, the stars will look back together on the period between 1994 and 2004. Until then, fans can reminisce and get distracted with the help of Chandler, Joey, Monica, Phoebe, Rachel, and Ross. Laughter is guaranteed!

If you don't feel like having six friends in New York, you can stream another cult classic on Amazon: "The Nanny". All six seasons are available to Prime customers. Lay on the coach and watch Fran Fine (Fran Drescher) win over Mr. Sheffield (Charles Shaughnessy). Always wonderfully weird!
