RARE Recommends: Watch These TV Shows With Buds In Hand
Stuck inside? Who isn’t with the current COVID situation and polar-friggin-ice vortex keeping us indoors here in Airdrie, Alberta. While many of us are getting much more acquainted with our homesteads, that doesn’t mean we can’t transport ourselves to another time, place and adventure with all the content we can stream!
Getting high and watching TV goes together like peanut butter & jelly – you laugh harder, cry more, or you develop a deeper, more meaningful understanding of characters, storylines and issues. Who can relate?
Our RARE Experience Guides have shared some of their top-binge worthy TV picks in case you are looking for something fresh to watch:
Ami’s Pick: Bob’s Burgers – Seriously, if you haven’t watched Bob’s Burgers, you are missing out on belly-bursting laughter. This animated TV show is so punny, hilarious and witty; it’s literally genius. Ami cannot get enough. If you watch any episode, watch The Equestranauts. Hysterical AF.
Crystal’s Pick: Friends – PIVOT! Friends is such a timeless pick. Join Rachel, Ross, Monica, Chandler, Joey and Phoebe as they comedically navigate life, relationships and work. It’s the perfect pick in Crystal’s eyes as it makes her LOL every single time, even though she has seen every episode 100s of times, and knows exactly what they are going to say before they say it!
Damian’s Pick: Ricky Morty – Pickle Rick! Follow Rick Sanchez and his grandson Morty on out-of-this world adventures. Half the time you’re laughing uncontrollably and the other half of the time you’re tripping out on intergalactic brake fluid. Damian’s take on it: Multidimensional travel from the comfort of his couch.
Josie’s Pick: That 70’s Show – Hello Wisconsin! Take a trip back to the 70’s and become a part of Eric Foreman’s gang of friends! It’s the perfect pick for mellow nights when you want to opt for something easy, fun, and light to watch.
Keilan’s Pick: Family Guy or down the You Tube rabbit hole – Basically a cult classic, Family Guy is another animated sitcom that provides endless hours of laughs. If that doesn’t meet your fancy, a quick search on You Tube can keep you occupied for hours and hours, and hours, and hours. . . .
Peter’s Pick: Workaholics – If you haven’t watched Workaholics, you are 100% missing out. Drenched in stoner culture, three best buds work together as telemarketers, live together, and party together 24/7. Peter describes it as clever and stupid all in one. Perfect for when you need a good, stupid laugh.
Stacey’s Pick: Scandal – If you’re looking for a more interesting and intriguing story line then this political thriller is the ticket. Scandal is about a crisis management firm whose characters eat, sleep, live and breathe crisis resolution. Stacey just can’t get enough of this thought-provoking show, and its insanely talented lead actress, Kerry Washington.
Tiffany’s Pick: Breaking Bad – This crime drama series is one of the best. Darkly mesmerizing, Breaking Bad follows Walter White a high school teacher diagnosed with cancer, and his former student, Jesse Pinkman, who manufacture and sell meth to secure Walter’s family’s future. Contemplative and thrilling, Tiffany just loves lead actor, Bryan Cranston and how bad-ass he is.
Looking to elevate your TV watching experience? Be sure to choose the right type of bud for the experience. Choose strains high in limonene and pinene for that uplifted, giggly and focused mood, or strains high in Caryophyllene, pinene and limonene for that mellower, chill, but focused vibe. We recommend looking in the Electric Avenue and Easy Rider classifications of our mood movement.
