List Rules Vote up the shows that are the best to watch start to finish while you're socially isolated.

You're doing your part to flatten the curve and you've decided to self-quarantine - but what are you going to do with your time? Or, more accurately, what are you going to watch? We combed through our list of the best TV shows to binge watch to find the series that are both available on streaming and particularly suited to captive viewing.

Dive into 21 seasons of Law & Order: SVU, or catch up on all 15 seasons of Supernatural before the finale this spring. Or, if you want some pure comfort food, sink into some Seinfeld or Parks and Recreation. This might be the time you need to watch all those Grey's Anatomy seasons you missed because you didn't know it was still on the air (16 seasons in and still going!). From horror to romantic comedy, there's a show with hours and hours ready for you.

What are you planning to binge? Vote up the best shows to watch while you're stuck inside while quarantined.
