9 feel-good Netflix series to watch during self isolation

Happy vibes

Self isolation might not sound like much fun, but we are seeing it as a perfect excuse to catch up on some the best, and funniest, Netflix series.

Naturally we are avoiding any intense dramas like ‘Outbreak’ or new docuseries ‘Pandemic: How to Prevent an Outbreak’ as we get plenty of that on the news, so instead we are blissfully clearing our minds with feel good series. From the popular ‘Crash Landing on You’ from South Korea which seems to have plenty of the UAE audiences gripped, to viral series ‘Love is Blind’ where singles try to form a relationship without ever seeing each other,

Crash Landing on You

A paragliding mishap drops a South Korean heiress in North Korea — and into the life of an army officer, who decides he will help her hide.

Love is Blind

Nick and Vanessa Lachey host this social experiment where single men and women look for love and get engaged, all before meeting in person. Bizarre yet incredibly addictive.

The Good Place

Due to an error, self-absorbed Eleanor Shellstrop arrives at the Good Place after her death. Determined to stay, she tries to become a better person.


This gripping docuseries follows the ups and downs of Navarro College’s competitive cheer squad as they work to win a coveted national title. It’s fierce, fun and gripping.

Sex Education

Brooklyn Nine-Nine

Following the humorous dynamic of Brooklyn police department as they solve crimes.

How I Met Your Mother

Think of this as modern-day friends with the same ‘will they, won’t they’ dynamic between Ted and Robin, hilarious escapades of suit-wearing bachelor Barney and college sweethearts Marshall and Lilly as they navigate their messy and hilarious lives in New York.

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

When a woman is rescued from a doomsday cult and lands in New York City, she must start afresh in a world she didn’t think even existed. Ellie Kemper is absolute gem in this and you won’t be able to resist singing along with Titus Andromedon.


A classic. Enough said.
