Netflix shows to watch Super Bowl Sunday

Finally, Netflix has landed another hit in the form of the That ’70s Show sequel spinoff That ’90s Show, and the streamer will always have blockbuster on its hands with Stranger Things. These are two shows worth escaping into at any time, including in place of the big game.

That ’90s Show

If you’re a fan of the original classic sitcom, then you certainly had the time of your life with the nostalgic return trip to the Forman family’s basement. A new generation of Point Place teens are here to drive Red and Kitty crazy during the summer of 1995 thanks to their granddaughter Leia.

Less than one month after the release of the spinoff series, Netflix announced the renewal of That ’90s Show season 2, which means Leia and her friends have more crazy times ahead of them. Whether for the first time or a second watch, this sitcom’s perfect for easy weekend watching.

Stranger Things

Can you ever go wrong with Stranger Things? The sci-fi horror series has taken the crown as Netflix’s most popular series, thanks in part to the massive release of its fourth season in the summer of 2022. Unfortunately, we have a long way to go until the fifth and final season

You could start from the beginning, jump back into your favorite season, rewatch the most recent season, or cherry pick the best episodes. No matter how you choose your own Stranger Things adventure, there’s no better show to watch if football just isn’t for you.
