TV series to binge-watch while staying put at home for two weeks

But think of it this way: this is the perfect time for you to catch up on the plethora of series you've been thinking of watching but never had the time to. Guess what you have now? Plenty of time! So get cosy on that couch because you have two weeks' worth of shows to enjoy. (Note that some of these might not be family friendly, so maybe going full isolation mode is the best way to enjoy them, just saying).
