Television shows that hover around the 30-minute mark are incredibly easy to binge-watch. Half-hour shows are quick and plot points are easy to remember, making it simple to zip through entire seasons in just one afternoon.

The most appealing part about half-hour shows? There are a ton of series worth revisiting or getting into. From classic sitcoms like Friends to groundbreaking family dramas like Transparent, shows that rarely exceed the 30-minute mark are varied and pack a lot in each episode. Some, like the short-lived but essential Party Down, ended after one or two seasons, meaning you can watch an entire show in a day. Others run for years, like It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, giving fans something to look forward to for months on end.

We rounded up the very best 30 shows you can watch in 30 minutes below.
