Most of the time after I toke, I just feel like zoning out to some shows. It’s hard for me to make up my mind on what to watch because everything just seems so entertaining that I’d end up being glued to the screen. I’m sure a lot of folks can relate to this since there’s a lot to consider.
After all, everyone has their own preferences while watching under the influence of Marijoinlah. Instead of spending so much time at attempting to find something to watch, I’ve rounded up some shows that are suitable.
Here’s a list of shows that I keep coming back to whenever I’m blazed.
SHOW #1 The Simpsons
There’s something oddly therapeutic and nostalgic about watching The Simpsons. Maybe it’s because I grew up watching the show, but it never fail to make me feel like a kid again. The only thing different this time around, is that I actually understand the jokes (but in a more hazy fashion.) I love all the movie and pop cultural references they put in the show, it never ceases to amaze me. Almost everyone can relate to some aspect of The Simpsons family. The stories, the jokes, the common experiences of school, family life, work, and the way the show points out day to day stupidity. The Simpsons make us see things in a comedic perspective, allowing us to laugh at our own hurdles in life and I guess in some way, it gives us comfort. It’s the kind of show that I want to fall asleep to after smoking a few bowls… Okay joking, more than a few bowls.
SHOW #2 Regular Show
Regular Show is about these two dorky best buddies, Mordecai and Rigby. Mordecai is a blue jay and Rigby is a raccoon. They’re both slackers in their early 20s who are more interested to play video games all day long instead of doing their jobs at the park. Their grandiose attempts at avoiding duties are nearly always the synergist for their far-out adventures. They have such an awesome dynamic, watching this show reminds me of all the shenanigans I got into with my homie(she’s more like Mordecai and I’m definitely Rigby.) Mordecai is rational and responsible, while Rigby is reckless and impulsive. When RIgby drags Mordecai down the path of obliteration, (which happens in almost every episode) it’s not out of hostility, he’s just slightly whacky. They are seldom victims of circumstance, rather, they make very careless decisions, and when faced with the consequences of those careless decisions, they continually make a series of way worse decisions. This is why it’s hilarious! Especially, when you’re blazed.
SHOW #3 Rick and Morty
This show is incandescent and witty. It revolves around the life of a sociopathic mad scientist and his doltish grandson roaming in outer space, alternate dimensions and alien worlds (there’s even a Christmas special where they were inside the internal organs of a homeless man.) Who wouldn’t want to watch crazy space adventures? It has an odd animation style, it is incredibly unpleasant, and some of the plots could definitely be a huge mind-boggler to most. For me, all of those things are why I think it’s genius. It is a cartoon for adults of all ages. Visualize the interaction between Marty McFly and Doc in Back to the Future. Now picture those interactions as R rated. Science, infinite opportunities, and sometimes, a combination of dark and grotesque humor. There are some great subtle jokes too and the characters are quite unique in progression.
SHOW #4 South Park
Why do I love this show so much? Social commentary has always been done through either catastrophe or humor. Sure, South Park is a “ridiculous” show, but it always hit the nail on the head in regards to how they deal with their commentary of what’s going on in the world. They've also been fair in how they ridicule, showing no mercy for anyone that didn't “deserve” to be ridiculed. It would be difficult to imagine a world where comedy isn't used as a way of commentary for troubling societal issues. South Park has been one the most effective pitcher for at-your-expense humor, it works. Now, I’m not forcing anyone, you don't have to be a fan of South Park (or anything else, really) but the show has been incredibly good at one thing in particular, which is, causing a reaction and fundamentally putting things in perspective. Sure, we come for the vulgar jokes, but there is also a lot of wisdom revealed through its storytelling. It can be ruthless (EG: Muhammad, Chef or Scientology), but they are, quite often, absolutely right (if you can deal with the "being offended" part, which, does happen) but that "being offended" is part of what makes the show so damn good. I’ve babbled on and maybe I’m biased, but man, I love this show.
SHOW #5 Mr. Pickles
I was introduced to this show during a sesh with my homies and it blew my mind. It’s a show about this satanic dog that leads a double life. He switches from being a seemingly good dog to a brutal devil-worshipping menace and only a few seem to notice how extremely evil he is. He’s named Mr. Pickles because he loves eating pickles and he always gets one after being a “good boy.” This is not a show for all folks out there, but the few (like me and my homies) who are fans of the show, couldn’t help but laugh at every twisted episode. The dog often speaks in satanic language whenever there’s a chance he could control or scare off other animals, soak in loads of blood and randomly shock people by popping out of a cake with a chainsaw that he uses to kill his victims. It’s so gross, gory and distasteful that when I showed an episode to my sister, she started praying for me after (no joke.) I guess I have a really dark sense of humor and this satanic show makes me laugh.
SHOW #6 Broad City
I’m a feminist so I’m all for women empowerment. It’s refreshing to see Marijoinlah heads who are women instead of men since, women are often left out in the 420 culture. You don’t see girls getting baked a lot in shows so when I came across Broad City, I fell in love! Before Broad City appeared, I’ve never seen two babes quite like this on television and they’re so lovable (it’s probably because women seldom get the same opportunities as men in the television industry.) What’s so relatable about the show, is how Illana and Abbi tend to say whatever random thing that pops up in their heads on a daily basis. They also go on hilarious adventures trying to make ends meet in NYC as millennials. Sometimes, I feel like I’m more like Illana and other times, I’m like Abbi. Broad City is the go to show whenever I want to pamper myself after a long dreaded day. Roll it up, blaze, sit back, relax and enjoy the show.
SHOW #7 The Story of God
I don’t know about other people, but I find it soothing to hear Morgan Freeman talk (he just sounds so wise.) In The Story of God, he explores various religions of past and present in depth, which often leaves me contemplating about faith. This is a great pair with Marijoinlah because I’m a very introspective person. I like to continually challenge my spirituality and beliefs by learning about my own religion and other religions as well. After all, knowledge is infinite and there’s no limit to what you can learn. I’m a nerd that way I guess.
