The coronavirus outbreak is an absolute bummer, and the worst part of it is there's no idea when it will subside. Normal life as we know it has been disrupted with the head honchos across the world taking precautionary measures so as to curb the severity of the infections and deaths.
With social isolation on effect, the situation's pretty much a lockdown with people being asked to stay indoors and work from home, it's that time when streaming and network shows are to be caught up and we compiled a list of shows you can watch today (March 18).
'Chicago Med' (NBC)
On Wednesday evening, NBC is airing the 100th episode of ‘Chicago Med’. The medical drama, spun-off from ‘Chicago Fire’ and ‘Chicago PD’ is now in its fifth season and underwent a major cast change at the start of the season. However, the show is going strong and this week’s episode will feature a major relationship in danger. April Sexton’s fertility treatments seem to have put in danger as the promo for the episode suggests things could get a lot worse before they can get better. The episode will also deal with a case of Munchausen syndrome by proxy.
'SEAL Team' Season 3 (CBS)
'SEAL Team' has come a long way since Season 3 premiered back in October. It started with the episode titled, 'Welcome to the Refuge', wherein Jason Hayes (David Boreanaz) leads the team on a mission in Serbia and struggles with PTSD issues. In a key turning point, Bravo Team goes on a mission in Azerbaijan to help retake a power plant in order to avoid political instability in the area, the team's personal lives also come into focus.
While Jason got into a relationship with his physiologist Natalie Pierce, Clay Spenser found a new love interest. And just to complicate things, his former love Stella also turned up at his door. Moreover, Mandy is still as badass as she can be. Throughout the season, there is friction between Lisa and Sonny Quinn but it is clear they love each other. As more episodes release, only time will tell what's in store for the tough Navy SEALs, both on the action and relationship front.
'Motherland: Fort Salem' (Freeform)
Freeform is all set to roll out its new fantasy-thriller series created by Eliot Laurence of 'Claws' fame.

The show follows three young women In this new, matriarchal society from basic training in combat magic into early deployment."
'Little Fires Everywhere' (Hulu)
Reese Witherspoon and Kerry Washington produce and star in an eight-episode adaptation of Celeste Ng's 2017 best-seller that also features Joshua Jackson and Rosemarie DeWitt. Lynn Shelton is among the directors.
'Love is Blind' (Netflix)
Netflix's new reality dating show 'Love Is Blind' is a social experiment that aggressively tests the old adage — love is blind.
Single men and women speed date one another while seated in adjoining pods that are separated by a frosted screen. The only communication device available to them is the mic embedded in their pods. Here's the difficult bit: In the weeks leading up to the engagement, the singletons have to make a decision. They'd have to propose the ones they'd like to know more and get married to. This is particularly difficult because there is no face to relate to. Binge-watch the show on Netflix to know who made it out of those pods as a couple and who left single.
Let us know your thoughts on some more shows that could make the list.
