The Blizzard of The Century—or at least a blizzard of a century, is on its way this weekend, and there's a good chance you'll be stuck inside tomorrow, lest you want to be smacked in the face by a boatload of snow. Thankfully, we live in the Golden Age of Television, most of which you can find streaming on the Internet, and so you will have many fictional friends to keep you company while the outside world transforms into Planet Hoth. Though you could binge some of these celebrated shows, there are also some lesser-watched offerings out there; here are our favorites, and we apologize in advance for turning your brain to computer mush.

ANYTHING ENGLAND HAS EVER MADE: I am not exaggerating when I say that I think that Great Britain produces the best programming in the world. IN THE WORLD. Fight me on this if you dare, but I will stay strong, for the shows I have binge-watched are the stuff of the Gods. Take, for instance, Sherlock, which is streaming on Netflix—though you might not understand a single word anyone says, Benedict Cumberbatch & friends solve mysterious like the beautiful British long-coated champs they are. Call The Midwife is another great Netflix option, though perhaps best avoiding if you ever plan on having children; The Vicar of Dibley, which dates back to the 1990s, is a hilarious comedy about a female vicar who leads the church in a small British town full of madfolk; and The IT Crowd is a Channel 4 masterpiece (starring Chris O'Dowd!) about a ragtag team of misfits that run a company's IT department.

The best thing about British television is that it's so easy to binge—seasons are like six episodes long, so it's pretty easy to get through a whole show in one go.

THE GREAT BRITISH BAKING SHOW: Yes, this is technically also a British show, but it gets its own write-up thanks to awesomeness and non-fictionality. Contestants compete to win the title of best amateur baker in the U.K., and it's pretty much a six-season orgy of cakes, pastries, pies (savory and sweet!) and scones. Just be sure to have some food handy while watching this one, and eat until you've made a sweater out of your own body fat. You'll also want a box of tissues at the ready for when Paul Hollywood inevitably makes you cry.

BOMB GIRLS: This Canadian period drama set during World War II follows a group of women who work in a dangerous munitions factory while the menfolk are abroad in Europe. It's a little soapy but still pretty engrossing, and the set designs and costumes make a bing-watch a lot of fun. Two seasons and a 90-minute series finale are streaming on Netflix, so you can consume the whole thing in one go.

THE ROOSEVELTS: It may take a few storms to get through this incredibly detailed 14-hour Ken Burns documentary that digs deep and unflinchingly into the lives of one of America's favorite presidential families, but the series is well worth the dedication. Burns takes viewers from 1858 to 1962, documenting everything from Teddy, Franklin and Eleanor's rough childhoods (did you know Teddy Roosevelt suffered from crippling asthma? Or that Eleanor's father was an alcoholic and her mother was emotionally abusive? Or that Sara Delano Roosevelt was a nightmare?) all the way through their respective presidential terms, until Eleanor's death in 1962. The whole thing is on Netflix—be prepared for a long ride.

JOHN ADAMS: I struggled through this HBO miniseries when it first aired in 2008, but if you're lucky enough to have HBO GO, it's a worthy binge, if just for Paul Giamatti's and Laura Linney's performances alone. The series was directed by BBC alumnus Tom Hooper, who also directed Helen Mirren in HBO's Elizabeth I and The King's Speech (and, tragically, the fittingly titled Les Miserables film in 2012), and the detailed period touches are all there as the series takes you through 50 years in Adams's life. This show is especially fun to watch if you've seen Hamilton, since it turns out everybody really did hate John Adams.

THE 100: A friend described this CW show to me as, "an amazing show where no one is happy because fighting for survival is a real drag," which sounds pretty accurate. The show follows a group of 100 teen prisoners who are abandoned on post-apocalyptic Earth and have to learn to survive, and though it starts out like a typical CW teen drama, the plots get far more complicated and layered as the teens begin to mentally destroy one another and shit hits the fan. Though the beginning of Season 1 is a little bit of a struggle, you're really in it about halfway through—there are two seasons streaming on Netflix right now.

FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS: Far be it from me to recommend something about Sports, but this five-season series about a high school football team in a small Texas town is one of the best shows on television, by far. Kyle Chandler and Connie Britton hold court as Coach and Tami Taylor, helping a rotating cast of young men and women navigate life on and off the football field. Binge the whole thing on Netflix, even if you have to fight your way through some terrible plot points in the second season, and join me in turning, "Heeeeey, y'aaaaaall," into your go-to catchphrase.

LAST MAN ON EARTH: If you shelled out for Hulu, Will Forte's fun series offers a slightly more comedic look at the apocalypse—after a deadly virus nearly wipes at all the humans, Forte finds a gang of survivors, all of whom seem to have insane relationship issues. Co-stars include Kristen Schaal and Mary Steenburgen, and there is a sublot involving space worms. Two seasons are on Hulu, and you can watch some of the more recent episodes without a subscription.

GILMORE GIRLS: We've crowned Gilmore Girls the best comfort show ever created, and after a couple re-binges on Netflix, that title still holds. A show about a mother and daughter team in a small town in Connecticut just screams snowstorm stream-session, and as long as you cut your bingeing short whenever Logan enters the picture, you'll be set until the slush melts.

MAKING A MURDERER: I mean, come on.
