After a lot of thinking and some serious research we compiled a list of the top 10 tv shows to watch while you’re high. Keep in mind that nothing is written in stone so lets hear some of your thoughts.
Family Guy: This show is a staple for potheads everywhere. While some people draw the line and either chooses South Park or Family Guy, I found that getting the best of both worlds is the way to go. Seth Mcfarland has tailor-made this show for stoners worldwide. There are so many different stations that syndicate episodes that you are almost guaranteed that you can get your fix for the day. The highlight episode is “420” which was an episode completely dedicated to stoners. Peter’s brain is like a pot smokers paradise. You know when he has a flash back or idea that it’s going to be hysterical. I would be willing to bet that this show has the highest percentage of stoner views over any other show on television.
Ninja Warrior: Turn this show on after a quick toke and you will be glued to your television set. The Japanese always seem to find a way to catch my interest when I am high. One of the best parts about the show is that every time I watch Ninja Warrior I feel like I could complete the course and make it to the finals. If I were thinking straight I would realize that there is no chance of that happening. This show is sure to get your blood pumping and make you want to go out and do something active. The last bonus is the terrible overdubbing on the interviews, which is sure to give you a couple of chuckles.
Trailer Park Boys: This show may be unknown to some but it has to be one of the funniest shows ever made. Combine that with all of the satire involving getting high and you have yourself the perfect show to toke up and watch. On one hand you have Julian who is the so-called “master mind” with all of his crazy ideas that never seem to work. On the other hand you have his sidekick Ricky who may be one of the funniest characters of any show ever! The best part about watching this stoned is that even though you know that their plans to get rich quick will spoil, you still have that urge to want to root for them to succeed. The show is from Canada and you best means of watching it would be either ordering it from Amazon or streaming it on Netflix (they have every episode).
Price is Right: This is one show that may be a surprise to some. Allow me to elaborate and you will see why it deserves to be on the list. First of all it’s kind of a hands on show where you at home get to play along. Nothing is better than having a day off and then having a nice wake n bake Price is Right session. Another thing that makes this show awesome is that some of the people that get on the show are complete tools. Drew Carey has surprisingly filled the void quite well and lays down some fairly decent humor. The show has a great pace and is always a great stoned experience. The showcase has to be the best part because you always feel like if it was you that you could dominate. In any case if you don’t believe me, try it yourself and you will see why this show is one of the greatest stoner shows of all time.
This show is basically a sketch comedy show that is sure to blow your mind. If you have a twisted since of humor then this show is for you. If you don’t, but like to get stoned, this show is still for you. I’ve never really seen a show that encourages me to smoke more than this one does. My favorite part of the show is when they have infomercials for their Cinco products such as the Pasta Bear, which is essentially a microwavable teddy bear filled with pasta. This show will seriously make you wonder if you are high or if the people making the show are completely insane. Do yourself a favor and check this out on Adult Swim on the Cartoon Network.
After Half Baked came out; Dave Chappelle propelled himself into stoner stardom. Once Chappelle Show hit the scene, stoners everywhere were laughing uncontrollably with every episode. Who can forget the classic Charlie Murphy and Rick James episodes? The greatest part about the show besides the fact that it was hilarious is that it has stood the test of time and is still one of the funniest shows ever made. Any fans of the show know that it ended abruptly but that may be a good thing because they didn’t try to make it until there was nothing left. I can bet you that you can find most if not all episodes on DVD for really cheap.
South Park: Ever since its inception, South Park has been a staple for stoners all over North America. The fact that they aren’t afraid to tackle anything makes for some good raunchy stoner humor. No stone goes unturned and the viewer is always put in a position to sit back and see how foolish things we deal with every day can be. Sometimes I sit in front of my television wondering if the show is going to get pulled off the air due to the crude humor. That wonder and comedic value is what keeps me coming back for more. The last thing that is awesome is that Stan’s dad Randy is a stoner in one of the episodes titled “Medical Fried Chicken”, which is definitely a must for the stoned population.
How it’s Made: The concept for this show is quite simple, yet so intriguing. How many times have you walked into a friend’s house and they are on cloud 9 watching How it’s Made? I can tell you from personal experience that it’s happened many times over. While it is interesting to see how something is crafted, the stoned side of me always wonders what life is like for the people that are actually making the stuff. You never get to hear them talk, and rarely get a smile out of them. For instance, what if the guy that weaves the baseball gloves together is actually a serial killer? Or what if the guy painting the birdhouses is actually a world-class chess player? These are the questions I ponder when watching this show. The educational part is also quite nice as well.
The Science Channel: Watching the Science Channel is something that stoners are naturally drawn into. I can’t recall a time that I actually planned on watching the channel. What usually happens is that you are scrolling through the guide and all of the sudden there is a special on how stars were formed. If you watch it in HD you will soon realize that you haven’t blinked in 15 minutes. This channel also has one of the smartest people alive by name of Michio Kaku. This guy can explain things to you and make them seem like its elementary. Kaku should brand his own Marijuana products and would probably make millions from all the stoners that recognize him from The Science Channel.
Cops: The ultimate show to watch when you are stoned has to be Cops. While this may be a shocker to some, it has to be the unanimous choice. It’s one of the only reality television shows honest and true to life. Plus you get to see junkies, prostitutes, hillbillies and many other fine people in their natural environment. One of the best parts is when someone gets pulled over, and you know they are carrying something illegal yet they deny it every time. This leads to them getting slammed to the ground where they explain how the stuff magically appeared in their car. Finally the best part about it is that you get to see what it’s like to get busted as a reminder to of what not to do. It’s the perfect combination of education, reality, and entertainment.
