(Welcome to The Quarantine Stream, a new series where the /Film team shares what they’ve been watching while social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic.)
The Series: Nailed It!
Where You Can Stream It: Netflix
The Pitch: A baking competition show featuring the world’s worst bakers.
Why It’s Essential Quarantine Viewing: There’s nothing riding on Nailed It! It’s about as laid-back a show as you can get – even when compared to other laid-back baking competitions, like, say The Great British Bake Off. No one takes the competition angle seriously, and, best of all, the contestants – who are truly terrible bakers – will make you feel better about your own culinary skills.

In case you hadn’t noticed, everything is very…intense right now. Even people who aren’t traditionally prone to stress are likely feeling the pressure as our daily lives become a constant stream of news about quarantines, shut-downs, and viruses. We could all use a light-hearted distraction, and thankfully, a new season of Nailed It! is coming to give us just that.

Nailed It! already unleashed one holiday special upon us, and now they’re about to drop another one. Watch the Nailed It! Holiday! season 2 trailer below.
