25 Shows To Binge Watch On Netflix Canada Now That "The Office" Is Leaving Forever
You're finally free to watch something else!
News broke this morning thatand almost simultaneously, you could hear the sounds of crushed Canadians no longer able to binge their favourite show.
While Michael Scott and his bumbling antics made for hours of fun, Netflix Canada is chock full of awesome shows that'll quickly make you forget about "The Office."
From classic Canadian comedies to new Netflix originals, there's a bevy of choices for you out there! The following list followed two simple rules: 1) comedies are king and 2) fans of "The Office" should enjoy these shows.
Without further ado, here are 25 things you should watch on Netflix Canada now that "The Office" is gone!
The IT Crowd
Roy, Moss, and their supervisor Jen make up a misfit group of IT technicians that work for a huge corporation that's run by a bumbling buffoon. With 5 seasons, "The IT Crowd" is sure to please any Office fan!
Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency
"Holistic" detective Dirk Gently and his unwilling companion, Todd Brotzman get into various misadventures involving the supernatural. Based on a Douglas Adams novel (same guy from Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy), "Dirk Gently" is a wild good time.
An uber-rich family ends up broke and penniless and has to move to a small town that they own for jokes. Catherine O'Hara and Eugene Levy are comedy legends that steal the show in this Canadian classic.
This low key hilarious show follows a not-so-cool teacher who thinks he's all that as he tries his best to do the bare minimum possible. Canadian comedian Gerry Dee is perfect in his role as the delusional Mr. D.
Trailer Park Boys
If you're Canadian and don't know about "Trailer Park Boys," drop off your passport at the closest border and get outta here! Arguably Canada's best show ever, "Trailer Park Boys" is 12 seasons of pure comedy gold.
Monty Python's Flying Circus
A classic and often hailed as the reason television comedy has seen such success, the influential and magnificent "Monty Python's Flying Circus" is available in its entirety on Netflix Canada.
I Think You Should Leave with Tim Robinson
From the mind that brought you "The Lonely Island" and some of your favourite SNL sketches comes Tim Robinson's stand-alone sketch show, "I Think You Should Leave." Though only 6 episodes (so far), this one is worth the watch if you're a fan of over-the-top sketch comedy.
You might've scrolled past this one thinking it's a "Vikings" knock-off but you'd be very wrong. "Norsemen" is a Norwegian comedy series that's as deadpan as it is brutal. Think of "Game of Thrones" aesthetics with a heavy dash of whacky sit-com situations and hilarious deadpan one-liners.
Baroness Von Sketch Show
The Baroness Von Sketch show features a predominantly female cast, writers, and situations. This Canadian comedy is one of the freshest and most inspired sketch comedy shows of the modern age.
Four working moms and friends try to balance their busy lives whilst trying to navigate the fast-paced life of Toronto. "Workin' Moms" is frequently referenced as one of the best new comedies out there.
"Archer" is an animated comedy that spans space and time. Centred around the dashingly handsome yet horribly insensitive Sterling Archer, "Archer" has been regarded as one of the best animated series this decade.
BoJack Horseman is a former superstar actor who's lost in a sea of booze and depression. Though often soul-crushingly too real (for an animated show), "BoJack Horseman" is also seriously side-splitting.
Don't Trust The B---- In Apt. 23
June Colburn moves in with the unpredictable and party animal Chloe, who behaves outragously until her roommates move out — not before causing irrepreable damage to their senses of self-worth. June, ever the plucky go-getter, develops an unlikely friendship with the B---- in apt. 23.
A heartwarming yet hilarous Ricky Gervais vehicle, "Derek" follows a group of socially inept outsiders who work at a retirement home. "Derek" will make you laugh and might even make you cry.
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt
After 15 years in a cult, Kimmy Schmidt goes to New York City to figure out her life in the outside world. She meets a diverse cast of characters and her spirit is well, unbreakable. This one is one of Netflix Canada's low-key top shows.
One of Netflix's best recent original comedies, "Sex Education" follows an awkward teenage boy who has a myriad of sexual dysfunctions. He and his classmates want to help out their high school deal with teenage sexual problems while figuring out their own sexualities.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine is widely considered as one of the best modern sit-coms. You should know it and love it at this point! If you don't, watch it now! It's a cop show with less cop and more comedy.
A satire of those Netflix "true crime" shows, "American Vandal" follows the aftermath of a high school prank gone wrong. The show will have you asking, "who actually drew all those penises?"
"GLOW" follows a group of women who are trying to launch the first-ever women's professional wrestling show in the 1980s. While not exactly a comedy in the traditional sense, "GLOW" has some hilarious moments. An awesome soundtrack, fantastic acting, and inspiring moments make this a must-watch.
A perennial classic for many T.V. nerds, the complete "Gilmore Girls" is on Netflix Canada. Relive the adventures of Lorelai and her daughter Rory as they try to make their way in a small Connecticut town. If you haven't seen this yet, now's a good a time as any.
The Good Place
From the creators of "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" comes "The Good Place," a comedy that follows one Eleanor Shellstrop in the afterlife, where everything isn't exactly as "good" as it seems.
Based on a graphic novel, "Happy!" follows Nick Sax, an ex-cop turned hitman who's trying to rescue his young daughter from an evil Santa Claus — all with the help of her imaginary blue-winged friend, Happy. Be warned, "Happy!" is very violent but absurdly hilarious.
Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee
Sure, Netflix doesn't have "Seinfeld," but you can still check out Jerry Seinfeld's other show, "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee." Watch Jerry as he interviews a variety of personalities including Jim Carrey, Dave Chapelle, and even Barack Obama while driving them around in cool cars and getting coffee. It's really that simple!
How I Met Your Mother
If you need another network sit-com to fill the void of "The Office," you can't go wrong with "How I Met Your Mother" and its 9 seasons of hilarity.
Going through puberty isn't easy for anyone, especially not the characters on "Big Mouth." Comedian Nick Kroll brings us an animated series that's as over-the-top absurd as it is relatable.
