Do you know that feeling. That feeling that you’re just fed up with everyting. And all you want to do is curl up with a blanket on the couch and watch your favorite comfort tv?
The good thing about comfort tv is that it doesn’t make you fat like comfort food does. You can watch comfort tv and escape for a few hours.
I’ve made a list of my 10 favorite comfort tv series.
10 series to watch for comfort!
1. Gilmore Girls
Every time I watch Gilmore Girls it makes me want to move to Stars Hollow. I love that village!
No matter what happens, they’ll always be… friends!
3. Downton Abbey
Downton Abbey is a world where you ring for your butler if you feel like having a coffee, and wearing the right dress at the right time is of the utmost importance. My favorite character is lady Grantham. Her oneliners are legendary.
4. The Little house on the prairie
I dare you to watch the first scene in the video underneath and not go: ‘Awwww!’ It’s the oldest series in this top 10, but everytime I see Laura Ingalls stumbling through the prairie I understand how the simple life can be a happy life.
5. The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel
Even though the storyline isn’t very ‘deep,’ this series is comforting because it looks beautiful and the music is great.
6. The Good Place: is there life after death?
There is in The Good Place. This series is kind of strange, and they make fun of all that makes us human. Which is comforting because it makes you realize: ‘Hey, we’re all just trying to do the best we can.’
7. Ally McBeale
Remember Ally McBeale? The laywer whose skirts kept getting shorter and shorter? It’s beautiful to watch and the music is lovely.
8. Bob Ross
Ah, Bob Ross. He paints. Just listening to his voice calms the nerves. My favorite part in this video is where he says: ‘Let’s go crazy, what the heck.’ And then he takes a 2 inch brush! Be still be heart. Even I don’t mind stepping out of my comfort zone like that.
9. Anne of Green Gables
Anne of Green Gables is comforting because it’s a joy to look at, and it reminds you of times gone by.
10. The Letdown
This series is about moms, their spouses and how they’re trying to cope with everyday life. It’s comforting because it’s so relatable. When you watch The Letdown, you know: ‘I’m not the only one who’s struggling.’ And that’s comforting to know.
This list of comfort tv is of course not complete. But hey, it’s a top 10 so I had to make choices.

When my husband and I got married, my two sisters gave us this beautiful house name sign with both our names on it. Since then we’ve moved three times, but the sign always came with us. Do you have a house name sign? What does it look like?
I’m a sucker for floral prints. I just can’t help myself. Recently I even found myself eyeing a floral iPad cover. And I don’t even háve an iPad. Once I realized flowers are my weak spot, I’ve been telling myself: ‘You don’t really like those gardening gloves/ dustpans/bags etc. You only like them because of…
I’ve been reading Tolstoy and the Purple Chair: My Year of Magical Readingby Nina Sankovitch, and I was struck by something she said about rekindling your sex life. Especially in the light of the recent hype surrounding the softporn book ‘Fifty Shades of Grey. Nina advises to have a glass of wine, read a good…
Look what I found at the local thrift shop: This great dress only cost me 7 bucks! It has got everything I like in a dress: flowers, it’s bright and happy and it’s comfortable. The only possible drawback is that my sister, the one who is getting married, thinks it’s a bit too loud… What…
Hi, we’re Bert, Barry and Brian! My cousin Hank is a butcher by trade. He’s got his own pen. Usually he’s got about three pigs in there, having a great life. And when they’re nice and fat, my cousin Hank takes them on a trip, and butchers them. And then the whole family eats them….
For years my kids nagged me for a pet. And I never wavered! I always told them: ‘No.’ I just didn’t want the hassle of a pet. Not after fínally having managed to raise my kids to the level I could safely take my eyes off of them without them getting into trouble. But then…
