A piping hot plate of nostalgia is always the best dish for satisfying your craving for quality TV. I don't make the rules! Or maybe I just did? Either way, picking up that handy-dandy TV remote to watch some classic '00s television sounds like the perfect way to ride out whatever storm, whether that be boredom or a pandemic. Maybe it's because things just seemed easier back then? Boybands and Britney Spears reigned supreme on the airwaves. Being fashionable meant you owned some kind of low-rise pant, and don't even get me started on how thin the eyebrows were. And T-Mobile's Sidekick was so iconic, it's going for some serious dough over on eBay right now. But enough about that. Let's get back to why we're all here: the beauty that was '00s TV.
The decade gave us classic comedies like The Office to Arrested Development, the beauty of MTV's Laguna Beach, sitcoms that made listening to a fake laugh track actually enjoyable, and a whole bunch of other goodies. With this much greatness, it can be hard to pick what to binge first. Have no fear; I wrangled up some of the greatest shows of the period. Ahead, here are some of the very best 2000s TV shows that you should rewatch, like, immediately.
