Here are the timeless classics you can enjoy online.
As many of us continue staying safe at home during this global COVID-19 pandemic, we've been spending most of our times (if not working from home) watching copious amount of movies and TV series. If you've run out of newer titles to binge-watch, why not revisit these timeless small screen classics? Check them out below!
"G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero"
Did you know that you can watch full episodes of "G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero" online? Just head to Hasbro's YouTube channel to watch them! The animated series, which originally ran from 1983 to 1986, is based on Hasbro's toyline of the same name. The episodes on YouTube include "The M.A.S.S. Devices Miniseries", "The Revenge of Cobra Miniseries" and "The Pyramid of Darkness Miniseries".
You can currently watch the first season of "The Sopranos" on HBO Go. (Then just subscribe for the other seasons because it'll be worth it). The American crime drama originally ran for six seasons from 1999 to 2007. It revolves around Tony Soprano as the New Jersey-based Italian-American mobster who tries to balance his criminal life with his family life.
An iconic TV series of the 1990s that has landed on various Best TV Series lists, even to this day. You can binge-watch all 10 seasons on Netflix and laugh out loud at the antics of Rachel, Joey, Ross, Chandler, Phoebe and Monica. Jennifer Aniston, Matt LeBlanc, David Schwimmer, Matthew Perry, Lisa Kudrow and Courteney Cox have all gone on to build successful careers in either film or TV post-"Friends".
"Fresh Prince of Bel-Air"
Who wouldn't know "Fresh Prince of Bel-Air", starring a fresh-faced Will Smith as a fictionalised version of himself? Smith plays a poor young man who gets sent to live with his upper-class relatives in their Bel-Air mansion and their lifestyle clashes lead to many hilarious moments. All six seasons of the show can be found on Netflix.
"Bob Ross: Beauty is Everywhere"
Before there were ASMR videos on YouTube, the small screen had Bob Ross, the American painter whose calm voice soothed many a frazzled mind in the 1990s. Tune in to his show "Bob Ross: Beauty is Everywhere" on Netflix and watch him paint as he soothingly explained what he was doing. Look out for the special guests: his adorable pet squirrels.
