We never thought we'd see the day — but we're officially out of shows to binge. If you're anything like us and the idea of streaming one more show makes your eyeballs ache, we have another suggestion for you: MasterClass.

Maybe you've vaguely heard of MasterClass, maybe you've even explored the catalog, but — take it from us — this is the perfect time to dive in and learn something new. While the idea of learning Italian through an app or practicing yoga with a virtual teacher is fun, MasterClass takes it one step further by not only tapping a renowned pro to lead each class but also breaking down the class into individual video lessons to help really get the instruction across.

From Italian cooking lessons from a Michelin-star chef to comedy teachings from Judd Apatow himself, these MasterClasses will help you become a master of a new field in just a few days. Plus, right now there is a deal running to get two passes, with full access to all MasterClasses, for just $180, so you and a partner can get schooled in the topics of your choice.

Scroll down to see a few of the classes that especially piqued our interest.
