The 19 Most Entertaining Things On Netflix To Have On In The Background

There are so many shows on Netflix that require your full attention. They demand popcorn, dimmed lights, and a comfy place to sit as you watch, riveted, for the duration. And then, there are the shows that are nice to play in the background, as you go about your daily life.

It doesn't mean you find these shows boring in any way, or that they aren't great. It's just that their familiarity provides a sense of comfort; a sort of soundtrack for your life. Maybe you've watched them a dozen times, and can recite every line. Or maybe they simply don't require your full attention, but are still entertaining.

These shows can come in handy in a variety of settings, including when you have guests over and need some background noise, ASAP. Sure, nobody's giving the show their full attention. But you know they're secretly grateful it's on, not only to provide ambiance, but for conversation starters, too.

Certain shows can also provide great company when you're hanging out at home, or cleaning your apartment. With one eye on the TV, you can speed through your chores — and make the process a little less painful.

With all these benefits in mind, read on for a selection of the 20 most entertaining things on Netflix, that you can easily leave on in the background — and go about your day.
