Comfort TV show
    2017-August-29  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

A: I want to watch something fun and leisurely this evening. What do you recommend?

B: How about “Modern Family?” That’s my go-to comfort TV show.

Note: Comfort TV show refers to television programs with unsophisticated or homespun themes that comfort or provide solace. “Breaking Bad” and “Westworld” are brilliant but heavy TV, so shows like “Modern Family” are just the thing when you need the visual equivalent of a hot water bottle. This phrase is a play on the familiar comfort food, which entered English in the mid-70s. This refers to simple fare (especially food loaded with carbohydrates) that’s comforting because the eater associates it with their childhood in particular or with home cooking in general.
