My Favourite ‘Comfort’ Shows

We are living in a weird, uncertain time that leaves us grasping for any sense of joy and normalcy. One way to do that, in my humble opinion, is to sit down with a few of your favourite comfort shows (also go for a walk outside).

Here are my favourite comfort shows:

Great British Baking Show

Any iteration of the Baking Show/Bake-Off feels like a warm blanket. The show is a competition, sure, but there’s no cutthroat element to it. Every season the cast makes beautiful bakes all while being incredibly wonderful and supportive to each other. It’s a beautiful, warm, wonderful show.

Where to watch it: CBC Gem in Canada, Netflix in USA


I have been saying this is my favourite show for a couple years now. My dear friend Lauren introduced it to me, and I’ve been trying to make as many people watch it as I can. It is incredibly funny and creative. I have seen every season multiple times and I genuinely laugh out loud during every single episode.

Pointless is one of my favourite British game shows. It kind of has the opposite premise of Family Feud. A question is asked, and the goal is to say an answer that the least amount of people have said. It’s fun and I love trying to answer the questions.

Nailed It

Nailed It is a perfect show. I combines my two favourite things – comedy and cooking shows. It makes me laugh so hard and it feels very relatable. I believe a new season is coming out in the next few weeks which will be a godsend.

The Kitchen

Oh boy do I love the kitchen. I’d say we have at least 50 episodes on the PVR. It’s a great show for accessible cooking from some really great chefs. The recipes make sense to people who cook at home. I’ve picked up a lot of great tips from watching The Kitchen. It’s also just so light-hearted and fun.

Where to watch it: The Cooking Channel, Food Network, The Global TV App
