Well, as an interview by StudentProblems with a renowned Psychologist Marc Hekster at the Summit Clinic in Highgate, stated that the show helps you tackle depression as it calms your brain.

“Having worked for over a period of 20 years with those experiencing anxiety, I can conclude that among other factors, it is the repetitive and relational nature of programs such as Friends and Big Bang Theory that will be doing the trick.”

“Anxiety is, in fact, the human minds’ alarm system, indicating that something is wrong, and usually the result of pent up and unprocessed feelings,” Hekster explains.

“The feelings build-up is not dissimilar to a pressure-cooker and will always need to find a way out.  If they can’t find a way of being expressed, the alarm system triggers, and it is usually not very pleasant for the person suffering from anxiety.  Few people who suffer from anxiety will have much good to say about it, and will want to escape it.”
