The 1982 Sitcom Cheers takes place in a Boston bar from 1982 to 1993. Over the years viewers got to know the lives of both the regulars and the employees extremely well. Cheers is regarded as an absolute classic full, of friendly, but slightly depressing faces who all know your name. Even after all these years, there is absolutely nothing wrong with going on Hulu and giving a few episodes a re-watch, especially seeing as all 11 seasons are available.

Our top spot for this month goes to the 1989 comedy classic ‘Seinfeld’. A show where Jerry Seinfeld plays himself venturing through everyday life alongside his friends in New York city. Upon its debut, the show quickly rose to huge success and even now, 19 years since the show finished it’s still often regarded as one of the best comedy sitcoms, and still holds a place in many peoples hearts. Despite the show’s clever writing and character development, the main reason Seinfeld made our number one spot is because of how relevant and popular it has stayed after so long.
