Mental health experts have recommended limiting the time we spend online and watching television during quarantine. By the time I took this advice to heart, I had already scoured all of YouTube, but- lucky for you- I managed to find the best new web series out there.
Doing it Ourselves is about a family renovating a historic chateau in France. It is charming, educational, and the right amount of cheesy.
