Created in 2007, Garfunkel and Oates is the musical comedic lovechild of Riki Lindhome (Garfunkel) and Kate Micucci (Oates). You might recognize Riki from the currently running Another Period or Kate from Scrubs, but they both have quite a filmography. Last year, IFC green-lit a television show for the duo whom loosely based the series around their lives and experiences.
The program shows us the funny inside jokes between friends as well as the trials we go through for people about whom we really care. We all need someone who’ll dance and sing down the middle of the street with us when we’re feeling blue.

If you got more As, you’re a Garfunkel! You dive head on into your work, but you’re very nurturing. If you got more Bs, you’re an Oates! Some people might think you need to grow up, but that doesn’t mean you’re not a great friend.
Garfunkel and Oates is available on Amazon and Netflix.
