Sweatflix & Chill | Feel Good Reality TV

Let’s be honest. A LOT of reality television feels like junk food. Tasty, gratifying, but somehow leaving you with an emptiness or a full of vague regret. But these reality shows are different. They’ll take you out of your own reality and whisk you away into another one that is fascinating, inspirational, or maybe thought-provoking. You won’t feel like you wasted your couch time in a voyeuristic stupor. Guilt-free viewing!

Queer Eye – Netflix

1 season – 8 episodes

This new iteration of the popular “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy” goes well beyond a typical makeover show.

You’ll love watching the transformations and can’t help but be uplifted by the exuberance of Jonathan, Bobby, Tan, Karamo, and Antoni.

Chef’s Table – Netflix

3 seasons – 18 episodes

Each episode follows a different world class chef, from humble beginning to heady success. It’s a thoughtful look at not just what we eat, but the deliberative process of preparation and how the philosophy of the chef shapes the cuisine.
