Shows That Feed Your Soul: Our Top 5 Picks

On these cold winter nights, we can’t think of something that might possibly be better than curling up in bed, steaming mug of hot chocolate in hand, watching a show that makes you feel just as warm and fuzzy that it makes you forget about the world outside. This is why we created a list of our top picks for comforting shows that will keep your soul warm this winter, ranging from feel-good sitcoms to Egyptian oldies that take you on a trip down memory lane, we’ve got it all!

1. Gilmore Girls


You already know we had to start this off with the classics! “Gilmore Girls” is a show that screams comfort and coziness, we can never get enough of Lorelai and Rory’s shenanigans around Stars Hollow, and watching this show feels like a warm, tight hug. This unique and iconic mother-daughter duo will make YOU wish you were Gilmore girl yourself, and I don’t know about you but I know that I personally wish I could get a taste of Suki’s food, or maybe walk down the halls of Chilton High and make eye contact with Tristan myself just to see what all the fuss was about.

2. Sabe3 Gar

A “story with no plot”. Ever since “Sabe3 Gar” came out in 2017, it has been a nationwide favorite for it’s simplicity and relatability to almost all of us in one aspect or another. We see ourselves and people we know watching this show, and we can’t help but feel comforted. “Sabe3 Gar” has no distinct plotline or conflict/resolution, and that’s why it’s so relaxing to watch, it just feels like you’re a part of the family.

3. Crash Landing on You

Into K-Dramas? if yes, you probably already know and absolutely adore this! if not, this is the perfect show to get you started. “Crash Landing on You” is the perfect mix of romance, comedy, drama, and action. This show will make you laugh, cry, occasionally let out dreamy sighs, and keep you on your toes, eagerly waiting for what’s to come. Separated by the division of North and South Korea, and in the midst of incredible political tension, this show explores a love that transcends borders. Yoon Se-ri and Ri Jeong-hyeok’s love story is not a conventional one, but their resilience and complete love for one another is what spreads warmth in the coldest corners of our hearts.

4. Modern Family

Another classic and all time favorite! “Modern Family” is one of the best comedy/feelgood sitcoms out there, with extremely lovable characters that somehow always end up in the most hilarious situations, you can never get enough. “Modern Family” is just one of those shows that will always have a special place in our heart, and whenever we’re in need of a good laugh, it’s the first thing we’re turning on. (P.S. we all know Lily is the real star of the show)

5. A’alet El Hajj Metwally

What better food for your soul than a nostalgic trip down memory lane? We’re certain that just like us, you grew up with your parents playing this show on the tv 24/7, and that when you think back to your childhood memories, El Hajj Metwally and his big family’s bickering is always playing in the background.
