Streaming recommendations to help you pass the time downtime at home.
First and foremost, I want to say that I hope you are healthy and well during the coronavirus outbreak! The situation continues to rabidly evolve around the globe with more developments coming every day.
Right now, the best thing we can do is sanitize and stay home as much as possible to limit risk of exposure and help contain the virus. While it might not be fun to experience so many canceled plans and events, it does provide us with the opportunity to spend more time relaxing at home.
Streaming Recommendations for March 2020
Given the reality that COVID-19 is presenting us with more downtime at home, I wanted to share some television show streaming recommendations to help you pass the time! Yes, yes. It’s rare that television is a topic of discussion on Dream in Lace but these are truly unusual times so – here we are.
The Trials of Gabriel Fernandez (Netflix)
While addressing difficult subject matter on a horrific child abuse case, this 6-part Netflix documentary is an important watch. The series details the failure of a system intended to protect children and how officials are making improvements to hopefully prevent additional tragedies such as this from occurring in the future.
The Outsider (HBO)
The 10-part series that’s based off the best-selling Stephen King novel has now concluded on HBO. The mystery is well written (naturally) and features compelling performances from a cast that includes Bloodlines‘ Ben Mendelsohn, Jason Bateman and Cynthia Erivo.
Love is Blind (Netflix)
Fans of The Bachelor will love this one! In an experimental setting, couples hold conversation – without seeing each other face-to-face. They’re able to build connections without outside factors based on appearance getting in the way of their relationship and compatibility. Once a couple has declared their love for one another, they are then able to meet in person and explore life together in the outside world. From there, things get wild!
While I have not seen this yet, the 4-part Hulu doc series is #1 on my list to watch! It covers Hillary Clinton’s entire political career and offers an inside perspective on her 2016 presidential campaign and loss.
Spinning Out (Netflix)
This is the most “soapy” of all my streaming recommendations. Spinning Out follows Kat, a figure skater who pairs up with a male partner after her career as an individual skater comes to an end. If opposites-attract storylines and figure skating sequences appeals to you, I think you’ll enjoy! The show also delves into how mental health issues can affect the entire family – with Mad Men‘s January Jones starring as a mother who battles bipolar disorder.

A mind-bending mystery that begins with the disappearance of a young boy. Dark‘s two seasons go places you will never see coming and create a maze unlike anything you’ve seen before!
There’s no better time than the present to start the drama that has captivated critics and viewers alike! With two seasons, so far, Succession follows the high-stakes Roy family drama and power struggles. It features top notch writing and impressive performances from a large cast.
Schitt’s Creek (Netflix)
Schitt’s Creek is laugh-out-loud funny and can lighten the air during such a heavy time. The five seasons follow the journey of a rich family who is forced to move to a dumpy small town after they lose everything.
Better Call Saul (Netflix)
In the Breaking Bad universe, follow do-gooder Jimmy McGill on the road to becoming Saul Goodman.
After a long hiatus, season 3 of Westworld finally returns to HBO on March 15. Now is the perfect time to catch up or start this mind-blowing television experience for the first time.
