It's hard to think of a better television genre to unwind with than comedy. These are the kinds of shows that can make us laugh despite everything else that's going on in our lives... and man, do we appreciate that.

Although we're pretty anti-sitcom here (sorry, "The Big Bang Theory" and "Two and a Half Men"), there are plenty of other comedies we love — so much so, in fact, that it was hard to narrow down our choices for this post.

Here are our 3 picks for the best television comedies to binge-watch!

Parks and Recreation

Why Tim Loves It: "Parks and Recreation" is without question, the most underrated show on television. When I say underrated, I mean, it is inexplicable why the show has such low ratings (I'm looking at you, NBC, for your poor promotion). If you have never seen the show before, there is no better time than now.

For anyone just starting to watch, I will give this warning, the first season is... ok. You can see it getting better as the season progresses as each character grows. The show hits its stride in season two and never looks back. There is no show I have ever seen with so many great characters, including Ron Swanson, Leslie Knope, Ben Wyatt, Tom Haverford, Andy Dwyer (my favorite), Ann Perkins, and the list goes on and on. Even the small parts are amazingly memorable, including characters like Councilman Jamm and Jean-Ralphio. I realize if you have never seen the show before, these names are meaningless, but trust me, you will love them all.

Do yourself a favor join the pack of incredibly loyal and passionate fans of "Parks and Rec" and binge-watch this show the next chance you get.

What People Are Talking About

Colbert is the New Letterman (Only Better)

Comedian, political satirist, and television host Stephen Colbert will replace Dave Letterman as the new host of CBS's "The Late Show." Colbert, who signed a five-year contract, will take over in 2015, so there's some time to mourn the loss of "The Colbert Report." Yes, we'll have to say goodbye not just to the Comedy Central show, but also to his Fox News alter ego. Of the new position, Colbert said, "Simply being a guest on David Letterman's show has been a highlight of my career. I never dreamed that I would follow in his footsteps, though everyone in late night follows Dave's lead. I'm thrilled and grateful that CBS chose me. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to go grind a gap in my front teeth." Congrats!

3 Television Dramas Worth Binge-Watching

We'd like to continue our posts encouraging you to lose hours — no, days — of your life to television with 3 excellent dramas! These binge-watching recommendations touch on the things that really matter, like meth, serial killers, and zombies.

To be fair, we never said our television show choices would be wholesome, just that it would be worth it to devote your time and energy to them.

Here are our picks for the best television dramas to indulge in through the art of binge-watching.

Breaking Bad

Why Tim Loves It: I'm sure that there is little surprise in someone recommending "Breaking Bad," but seriously, if you haven't started watching the show yet, start right now. No show that I have ever watched has ever left me on the edge of my seat more than this show; and I don't mean from the beginning to end of each episode, I mean from the beginning to end of entire seasons. Each season brings new challenges for chemistry teacher turned drug kingpin Walter White. As you go through each episode, you watch as his character develops, leaving a wake of physical and emotional destruction behind him.

Another great reason to binge-watch "Breaking Bad": there are only about 13 episodes per season, which is short in comparison to a lot of recent dramas. You will find yourself finishing entire seasons in a single weekend, and you will love everything about it (except Marie, it seems to be pretty unanimous that everyone dislikes Marie).
