This popular series, hosted by Jerry Seinfeld, recently returned for another season on Netflix. Now in its 11th season, the series hopes to bring back some new and old faces for viewers.

The premise is pretty simple: comedians, or famous people in general, go get a cup of coffee with Jerry Seinfeld. This unscripted talk show features Seinfeld and his guest driving to a predetermined cafe and talking about whatever comes to mind.

It’s an easy-to-watch show that’s great for those 20 minutes you may have at lunch on a busy day.

Top Gear

Just like The Office, Top Gear has U.K. and U.S. versions. The show originally aired on the BBC but moved to Netflix about three years ago and has been there since.

It’s been a top destination for car lovers and gearheads everywhere. The hosts drive all types of cars during the run time. There is plenty of competitions, friendly banter, and cool cars to keep you watching each and every episode over and over again.

Fast N’ Loud

Back for its 15th season, Fast N’ Loud can either be found on Hulu or the Discovery Channel. If you have a significant other who’s into Fixer-Upper or any similar show, you can rope them into the Fast N’ Loud crowd.

The show follows Richard Rawlings and his garage crew as they search for old, run-down vehicles and fix them up to sell for profit. The worse off the car, the bigger the challenge.

The show makes sure to incorporate some comedy into each episode as well so you’re not just going to be watching repairs for half an hour.

Fifth Gear

Fifth Gear was Top Gear’s top competitor in the U.K. for a number of years, but with a bit of a different taste.

While Top Gear was more based around fun and humor, Fifth Gear provides more valuable and newsworthy information for viewers. In addition, the show is more likely to review cars that viewers might be able to afford.

The show is still running and just aired its 21st season.

Counting Cars

Airing on the History Channel, Counting Cars sports a face familiar to those who have watched Pawn Stars. The show just ran its eighth season, following lead man Danny Koker and his crew at Count’s Kustoms.

Danny, better known as The Count, and his team take old cars and restore them for reselling.

Danny worked as the car appraiser during Pawn Stars before landing this spinoff in 2012. The show is fun to not only watch Danny work but to see all of the customer motorcycles and cars they can make!

Wheeler Dealers

Yet another British show, Wheeler Dealers is also a car restoration show featuring two friends. The show has been running for two seasons and it takes on a different spin from other restoration shows.

The host, Mike Brewer, will buy a run-down car and hand it over to his mechanic friend who will have to fix it up in order to sell it for profit. Originally, Brewer only had 1,000 GBP to purchase a car but as the show has developed over the years, the budget has been modified accordingly.
