What To Watch When You’re Sick

On this day after Halloween, maybe you’re nursing a sugar-induced stomach (or one induced by something else …), so you’re probably taking it easy today. Which is what I do most days now. As you may or may not know, I watch a lot of TV and movies. That’s just what happens when you’re stuck in bed or on the couch on a regular basis due to being chronically ill. This is also what makes me very good and identifying what you should watch when you’re not feeling well.

What To Watch When You're Sick

Crime shows: there’s always something playing (CSI, CSI: Miami, NCIS, NCIS: LA, Criminal Minds, Cold Case, Law & Order, Law & Order: SVU, Law & Order: CI, Castle, Elementary, Rizzoli & Isles, Perception, White Collar…)

Not only are crime shows on all the time, but they’re also especially great if you need to get stuff done but still want to watch TV. Don’t really follow along the story line of one episode? It’s fine since it doesn’t really matter next episode.

Drama: One Tree Hill, Gilmore Girls, Gossip Girl, The Blind Side, all Harry Potter movies, The West Wing

These are interesting and will keep your attention, so you’ll be entertained while not feeling well. But you’ll probably want to avoid doing other things at the same time. You’ll end up not doing them anyway.

Supernatural/Fantasy/Sci-Fi: Supernatural, Doctor Who, Torchwood, Sleepy Hallow

Addictive, fun, and definitely interesting, these are probably my favorites to watch when I’m not up for doing much. It won’t be long until you’re obsessed.

Historical Drama: The Tudors, The Duchess, Reign, The Kings Speech, Downtown Abbey, Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility

Want to escape your world to one where they have very different problems than us? These are so good, but if you’re watching one based on reality (like The Tudors), make sure you figure out what’s fact and what’s fiction. For example, you wouldn’t want to talk about how King Henry VIII’s sister Margaret married the king of Portugal and then killed him. While elements of these shows/movies may be true, there’s still so much more that isn’t.

And obviously you need something to watch them on. What’s better than an LG OLED TV? I had the opportunity to check it out last week and believe me when I say that this is basically the coolest TV I’ve ever seen. Plus, it has an extremely crisp picture and is the perfect curved TV. I was a little skeptical, and then I saw it in action myself.


Which TV has the better picture? The one on the right. Without a doubt.

But here’s what also makes it awesome:

– Because it has a curved LCD screen, there is less light leakage.
– Specifically, there’s three times less blue light, which means there’s less eye fatigue after watching TV for a while
– Reviews call it the “best picture ever”
– The smart TV elements are as user-friendly as possible
– There’s simultaneous switching between smart elements. AKA it doesn’t take 5 minutes to switch from watching TV to watching Netflix

It’s currently $3500, but as the tech evolves, the price will drop. So if you can’t afford it now, just keep an eye on it. Check it out here!
