Anyone remember the days of Blockbuster? The days when films and videotapes were bought and rented in shops. The days when nothing would make you more excited than to go to the video store, rent a film, get some popcorn, a liter of cola, and enjoy yourself.
Well, the world has changed. What was once a company that would mail DVDs to its subscribers, is now the biggest streaming site in the world: Netflix. Ironically enough, Netflix tried to sell themselves to Blockbuster in 2000 for $50 million, but it was rejected. Perhaps Blockbuster now wishes they’d taken them up on that offer. Netflix consumes 15% of the world’s bandwidth, which highlights how much of a superpower they really are. So, with so many shows out there, and so much to watch, how do we know what’s worth watching. We only have a finite amount of time on this planet after all. Well, today we’ll be taking you through the 10 best Netflix shows to watch whilst you’re high and why. Here we go.

“I’m good at everything, except the things I can’t do”
At number 1 is the new, mind-blowing and Korean: Squid Game. Squid Game is a Netflix original show and received 93% on Rotten Tomatoes, which for anyone who loves TV will know that counts for something. The show is about a group of desperate people in search of money, who decide to take part in deadly children’s game challenges in hope of winning a huge cash prize. Squid Game has become Netflix’s biggest debut hit, with 111 million viewers worldwide. The show highlights the amazing nature of Korean cinema. The style, the drama, the beauty, the acting, the music all amount to one incredible show. And it does leave you asking the question: ‘would I take part in Squid Game?’
“If we don’t have trust, we have nothing”
Next up, we have the Netflix series You, starring Penn Badgley. This show is best described as: “a dangerously charming, intensely obsessive young man goes to extreme measures to insert himself into the lives of those he is transfixed by”. The guy does practically everything he can to ensure he ends up with the girl of his dreams. It’s like a messed-up version of a fairytale and it’s a psychological thriller. The show is on its third season, which means – luck for you – there’s lots to binge. The reason this show made the list is because it received 92% on Rotten Tomatoes and because so much happens in so little time. It’s a jam packed, funny and heart-wrenching show that reveals ‘nice guys’ for what they are.
“Well maybe I don’t need your money. Wait. Wait. I said maybe!”
The third on this list needs no introduction as it is the greatest, long-running TV show that has ever blessed our screens. Friends was a show that ran from 1994-2004, with 236 episodes and 10 seasons. The series was about a group of 6 friends (Ross, Rachel, Phoebe, Monica, Chandler and Joey) who are chiseling their way through life in their mid to late 20s. As they grow up, living in New York, they face relationship and work challenges as they figure out what it’s like to get older. The series had a global following unlike any other and every single actor of the 6 became a star. The show was hilarious, tear-worthy and insane, and now, you can watch it all on Netflix. So grab your bud of choice and binge the heck out of this show.
“Everyone has bodies, right? It’s nothing to be ashamed of”
Sex Education is a TV show that you may not want to watch with your mum or dad, but it’s definitely one that you’re gonna want to watch. The show follows a group of high school students in a British college, as they deal with the beauties and horrors of sexual awakening. It’s true, it’s honest and it’s powerful; not to mention hilarious. This show deals with sex in a way that none have before it. They don’t shy away from fluids, and genitals and honestly-depicted sex scenes. With incredible actors like Asa Butterfield and Gillian Anderson, this TV show is historic in its honest and is not one to miss. With 3 seasons out, and a 4th in the pipeline, you simply must start this journey during a ‘high sesh’.
Rick & Morty (Not in U.S.)
“To live is to risk it all; otherwise you’re just an inert chunk of randomly assembled molecules drifting wherever the universe blows you.”
Rick and Morty is probably one of the weirdest, craziest and out-right bonkers TV shows you’re ever going to see. It was practically built for you to watch whilst enjoying the wonders of THC. It received 94% from Rotten Tomatoes and has run for 4 seasons thus far. The show follows the crazy, scientist grandfather Rick, as he takes his grandson Morty on insane scientific adventures through time and space. The show deals with some quite incredible philosophical dilemmas and problems, and answers them in beautiful ways. It’s also all animated, which allows the show to create worlds with no limitations. Whilst everyone seeks meaning in life, Rick and Morty constantly highlights that there is none, but that that’s okay. This show is a real mind-bender, and one that thoroughly deserves to be on this list. If you’re in the United States, you can catch Rick & Morty on Hulu.
“You lean your head back, arch your crotch in the air and say, ‘Dinner is served.'”
Big Mouth is yet another show about sex education, puberty and growing up, but it’s very different from the others. This animated show is a hilarious, full-of-swear-words TV sitcom, which follows a group of young school students dealing with hormones and puberty. In the world of Big Mouth, each student has a ‘hormone monster’, which is an alter-ego that personifies the horny, hormonal and sexual part of them. Does it sound weirder than it is? No, it’s still pretty weird. The show has a 99% Rotten Tomatoes rating and it could be one of the best things to happen to sex education since Sex Education came out. Although this isn’t a kid’s TV show, it does quite incredibly depict the trials and tribulations of a young kid going through puberty. Sit yourself down, and get your teeth into this beauty of a show – It’s laugh out loud funny.
“He’s so stupid, he doesn’t realise how miserable he should be”
Now we we bring Bojack Horseman onto the stage. Bojack Horseman may just be another another animated American sit-com, but the reality is that it’s one of the only animated TV shows with a through-line plot and a protagonist that you both hate, whilst also feeling sorry for. The show follows Bojack Horseman, an actor who was once in a famous American sit-com called Horsin’ Around. He lives in Hollywood (or in the case of the show it’s called ‘Hollywoo’ because some stole the ‘D’) and he deals with the true nature of fame, mental health problems and drug addiction. The show is hilarious, but will also surprise you with how serious it can become. Bojack Horseman is a revolutionary TV show that won the Critic’s Choice Television Award for Animated Series. Watch this show, but be prepared to be crippled for todays.
“The satisfying sound of your lover smacking the pavement is the only thing that gets me to sleep.”
Ozark is like the new Breaking Bad, which is a big statement to say, I know. The show follows a financial advisor who is forced to launder $500 million in five years in order to appease a drug lord. If he doesn’t do it, he dies. Through watching the TV show you learn a lot more about money laundering than perhaps you ever thought you would. It’s not just educational, but it’s also a absolute thriller that has you on the edge of your seat all the way. In addition, it’s probably Jason Bateman’s best ever performance. Ozark has 3 seasons already, and the 4th is about to come out. Join this train before it goes off without you!
“The Earth is what we all have in common”
Planet Earth is a revolutionary TV show that shows the beauty of planet Earth, whilst also revealing how it is being destroyed by humankind. Planet Earth has some of the most incredible shots of wildlife and nature that have ever been filmed. Some episodes take years to film, as the film crew spend lots of time waiting to see the world change, and for the animals to adapt in their natural habitat. Not to mention, the narration by David Attenborough is enough of a reason to watch this series. This show does not just have incredible visuals that would work very nicely with some sense-enhancing THC, but it’s also a must watch for every human on this plant. Especially if we aim to one day stop destroying the planet.
The Vanishing at the Cecil Hotel
“What happened to her?”
The final Netflix TV show on this list is the Vanishing at the Cecil Hotel. This, unlike the others, is perhaps a bit of wild card. The show is a true story and it documents the vanishing of Elisa Lam, and the confusing narrative behind it all. We follow every lead as we, the viewer, also try and figure out where she vanished to and why. The docu-series highlights the effects of media-mania and also mental health. There’s no doubt that this series is a scary and horrifying watch, but it’s also no doubt an interesting one.
Well, it would probably take the best part of a few years to get through all of these Netflix series, so don’t feel bad if you don’t have the time. But, these 10 shows are some of the best television out there, and some of the best to watch whilst high. So, without further ado, go get your teeth into these.
