Must List

Watch *these* throwback TV episodes to cure your boredom

Social distancing is so important right now, but being stuck inside for weeks at a time can definitely lead to a lot of boredom. Take the time to revisit some of your favorite old shows (don't forget the fuzzy blanket and caramel popcorn).  Need more inspiration? We made a list of some of the greatest throwbacks for you to catch up on during your quarantine. 

Hannah Montana 

Best Episode: Me and Mr. Jonas and Mr. Jonas and Mr. Jonas (Season 2, Episode 16)

Why It's Amazing: There is no better throwback than old school Miley and The Jonas Brothers. The episode is full of classic Hannah Montana hijinks (who can forget Miley and Lilly’s *hilarious* alter egos Milo and Otis?) plus a bop of a throwback song: “We Got the Party with Us.” 

Where You Can Watch: Disney+

Gossip Girl

Best episode: Bad News Blair (Season 1, Episode 4)

Why it's amaze: This episode has everything you could ask for: BFF drama, relationship struggles and *all* the gossip, ofc. Blair is offered the chance to model for her mother only to feel upstaged by Serena, while Dan and Serena are struggling with living in different worlds.  There are also some classic Chuck antics to love. Could anything be better?

Where to watch: Netflix

The Office

Best episode: Dinner Party (Season 4, Episode 9)

Why it's amaze: Every moment of this episode will have you cracking up. Guaranteed. The incredibly dysfunctional couple Michael and Jan insists on throwing a dinner party for other office employees and pretty much nothing goes as planned.  Pro tip: Watch this episode multiple times, focusing on different characters each time for hilarious reaction shots.

Where to watch: Netflix


Best episode: Black and White and Read All Over (Season 1, Episode 10)

Why it's amaze: When an exposé in the school paper tells the campus about some of the scandals in the Greek world on campus, Casey and the rest of the gang is forced to deal with the fallout - while also facing personal consequences. Tons of fun drama, love, and breakups—featuring the iconic line "you love you, you love what I can do for you!"

Where to watch: Hulu

Drake & Josh

Best episode: Mindy's Back (Season 3 Episode 4)

Why it's amaze: While we are all used to seeing Josh Peck hanging out with David Dobrik and the vlog squad, see where he got his start on Drake & Josh.  This episode has Josh enter a science fair, only to come in second to his nemesis, Mindy...only to discover the two have feelings for each other. What happens next? You'll have to watch to find out.

Where to watch: Hulu

Parks and Recreation

Best episode: The Comeback Kid (Season 4, Episode 11)

Why it's amaze: Leslie's attempt to restart her campaign with the help of her friends is too funny—and *so* adorable. Watch as the Pawnee gang tries to help Leslie get the stage, special guests and speech in shape—only to have it all pretty much fall apart as soon as it seems like they have it together. (Don't stress too hard, it all works out in the end.) 

Where to watch: HuluNetflix, Amazon Prime


Best episode: Original Song (Season 2,Episode 16)

Why it's amaze: With Regionals approaching, Mr. Schue challenges the New Directions to write an original song for the competition, which leads to some difficulty for the team but eventually gives us "Freaks Like Me"—an anthem for *everyone*. This episode also has some other great music throughout the episode, not just from the New Directions, but from all the competing teams at Regionals. 

Where to watch: Netflix

Full House

Best episode: Secret Admirer (Season 4 Episode 11)

Why it's amaze: After you're all caught up on Fuller House, why not go back to the original to discover why we were originally obsessed with the Tanner family? This episode is a perfect example of why we love the original show.  The family is confused as a love letter makes it through the house.  No one knows who wrote it—and of course, everyone's confused. The episode is hilarious and a great throwback to watch with your family.

Where to watch: Hulu
