Top 9 TV Shows to Watch When You're High

From the Amusing to the Amazing

I googled 'weed tv' and this was the first image to come up.

Stuck looking for something to watch when you're high? I've compiled a list of nine TV shows that range from the hilarious to the astonishing, to suit whatever mood you're in. 

So without further ado (or adieu?)... Here is the list:

9. 'The Hunt'

"The stakes could not be higher."

The Hunt is a show that is solely about displaying the harsh life and death struggle that exists in the natural world. 

This show isn't for everyone however, some scenes can be quite distressing as you have the ethical conundrum of who to support; the hungry predator or the innocent prey. 

But for those who don't mind, it's an incredibly entertaining show, with intense chases, amazing visuals, and raw eye-opening moments in nature. 

There is one particularly outstanding sequence in episode 4 'Hunger at Sea', between 36:00 and 41:00, that has to be seen to be believed.

Available on: Netflix

8. 'RuPaul's Drag Race'

"Gentlemen, start your engines, and may the best woman win!"

You don’t have to be an expert on Drag Culture to enjoy Drag Race, in fact, the less you know the better. From the moment the episode starts, you’ll be thrown into a totally new world with its own jargon, rules, and culture. 

It’s as entertaining as it is dramatic and sometimes so much so it will feel like a written spoof. 

It’s highly enjoyable even if you don’t think it’s for you, and you’ll find yourself to be a runway expert after just a few episodes.

Available on: Netflix

7. 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine'

"Hot Damn!"

The strength of this show lies in its fantastic characters; each one hilarious in their own right. Seasons 1 and 2 are particularly funny, and you'll quickly be quoting the stone-faced Captain Holt or the sweetheart beefcake Sergeant Terry. 

Easy to binge and lots of fun. 

Available on: Netflix 

6. '60s Spider-Man'

"Spider-Man, Spider-Man, Does whatever a spider can!"

The janky animation and wooden voice acting only contribute to the charm of the original Spider-Man cartoon, originally aired between 1967 and 1970. It's an incredibly entertaining show, in a so-bad-it's-good kind of way, and very easy to see why it's spawned countless memes. 

Some kind soul has uploaded the majority of the 60s series online for your enjoyment, and you can find episode one on YouTube

Available on: YouTube 

5. 'Classic X-Factor'

"I've got the X-Factor, so show me the stage doooooor!"

This one is a bit of a cheat as it's technically clips from a TV show, as opposed to episodes themselves, but they're so entertaining that I had to include them.  I'm referring to the compilations of very bad X-Factor contestants; when they're awful singers, have a terrible attitude, or those juicy moments when the angry families get involved. 

The noughties fashion will take you back to a simpler time, and Sharon and Louis' laughing fits are very infectious indeed.

4. 'The Ricky Gervais Show'

"...and the fool, the round-headed buffoon, that is... Karl Pilkington."

Adapted from a series of popular podcasts, The Ricky Gervais Show is very well animated visualisation of the conversations between Ricky, Stephen Merchant, and their round-headed colleague, Karl Pilkington. 

You never know what is going to come out of Karl's mouth, and the trio has a fabulously entertaining dynamic. 

And as I mentioned before, the animation is a creative, original, and a very entertaining way of adding to the already hilarious conversation. 

Most episodes are available for free on YouTube, but annoyingly only in 240p. But the DVD box-sets are online, if you're willing to pay.

3. 'Hell's Kitchen'

"You fucking donkey!"

There is a lot to enjoy about Hell’s Kitchen, whether you’re a fan of fine cooking, over-the-top arguments, ridiculous editing, celebrity cameos, stupid challenges, or savage rants and insults from Gordon Ramsey; there really is something for everyone in Hell’s Kitchen. Season 14, 15, and 16 are available for you to binge through right now (if you can handle the heat).

Available on: Netflix

2. 'Planet Earth II' or 'Blue Planet II'

"This is planet Earth, as you've never seen it before."

Technically these are two different shows, but they both capture the amazing stories and incredible footage of different animals from all around the world, with the captivating narration from David Attenborough. 

Utilising the most advanced camera technology, these shows are able to exhibit deserts, jungles, coral reefs and the deepest oceanic depths like you've never seen them before. They'll leave you fascinated, mesmerised, and educated on the wondrous variety life on this planet.

1. 'Limmy's Show'

"Welcome to Limmy's Show"

Brian 'Limmy' Limond's brilliantly bizarre sketch show is a hilarious mix of crazy characters and ridiculous situations. The unpredictable punchlines coupled with Limmy's abundant charisma and  charming Scottish accent is a hilarious combination that you're bound to enjoy. 

Available on: Netflix
