      If you’ve already burned through all 12 seasons of RuPaul’s Drag Race on Netflix (which we highly recommend), there are plenty of other uplifting shows and movies to watch while self-isolating.

      Be sure to stock up on your favourite couch snacks (NoochPOP, anyone?) after you read through this list.

      How to Fix a Drug Scandal (2020)

      May we suggest revisiting the old classics that are new to Netflix for a good chuckle? Like Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, Community (seasons one to six), and the wildly inappropriate White Chicks.

      But for those who prefer a more serious quarantine experience, the Netflix original docu-series How to Fix a Drug Scandal will deliver just that. The series follows a drug lab chemist who gets caught tampering with crime scene evidence and working while under the influence.
