The rule is roll two for each hour. I don’t make ’em.
Just kidding, in cannabis, there are no rules – except, know your body. If you want to roll three j’s while catching up on Search Party, that’s totally your business. What Dory’s crazy ass is going to do next, for sure business you’d want to tune into. But I digress.
Day 372,372 in a panny. Still not much to do, except watch these shows that’d give you something to tweet about. Trust, you won’t be led astray with these ones. Here are a few shows currently streaming that’ll have you itchin’ for the next season – if the series hasn’t ended already.
WandaVision – Disney+
For true MARVEL fans only. Not “only,” but you’d be pretty lost if you’re unfamiliar with their cinematic universe. Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany are back in what starts as a very Brady bliss of a miniseries. There’s no need to explain what WandaVision is about because if you know, you know but I will say that if you are going to tune into HBO Max each Friday for a new episode, then I’d suggest you rewatch Dr. Strange and Captain Marvel first, to get a better understanding of what’s going on. WandaVision is the first show to be released as part of the MCU’s Phase Four strategy.
Marvel Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. – Netflix
Let’s keep the Marvel energy going. Now, this show wrapped it’s seventh season in August 2020, so it’s the perfect time to catch up with the all of team’s timelines. Following what happened to Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg) post murder at the hands of Loki (Tom Hiddleston) in The Avengers, AOS explores the duties of Director Fury’s (Samuel L. Jackson) Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement, and Logistics Division task force. He even makes an appearance or two. The agency’s full name is a lot and so is the dangers the team faces to protect our world and well, the universe. The show closely links to the MCU films, from Age of Ultron to Ant Man. (The Sakovia accords are alive and well.) It even ties to WandaVision. Pay attention to season 4, and those Hydra-Soak commercials will make sense. Shout out to the writers and cast on this one. This is on our list for best shows – ever.
Flack – Amazon Prime Video
Anna Paquin takes London in this dramedy about an American PR agent working like a crackhead to fix her client’s problems, while operating as a coke-head to navigate hers – well, trying to. If you’re into British shows with quirky characters who double as hot messes, this one is for you. There are two seasons and you can catch the first one on Amazon Prime.
FATE: The Winx Saga – Netflix
The Harry Potter for fairies. This teen-series which recently dominated Netflix is a quick six-episode watch the first season – and it’s quite entertaining. It involves magic, deception, and death – oh my! While at boarding school, these mystical women must navigate sharpening their sorcery while fighting for their lives. A reboot of the Nickelodeon show of the same name, this one is for the my witches.
Search Party – HBO Max
Though the series just wrapped up season 4, if you haven’t checked this out yet, I HIGHLY recommend. I mean, the show did get 100% on Rotten Tomatoes. Search Party stars the beautiful Alia Shawkat as Dory, her ex-boyfriend Drew (John Reynolds), along with her half funny/half shady-ass friends Elliot (John Early) and Portia (Meredith Hagner). In the first season, Dory realizes one of her classmates, Chantal (Clare McNulty) has gone missing and she takes it upon herself to form this unofficial search party to find her. Add to that, Dory isn’t actually that close with Chantal and you have a recipe for a disastrous four seasons, in the most entertaining way possible. Whatever you think this show is about, it’s not. Each episode will have you in for a ride.
The Flight Attendant – HBO Max
This one feels like a big hangover from a lit night. If you’re looking for a show that’ll stop you mid-roll, make sure your HBO Max subscription is still valid to watch The Big Bang Theory’s Kaley Cuoco play hot mess express, Cassie Bowden. Basically, this liquor-loving flight attendant wakes up to a bloody dead body and welp, has to remember WTF happened. Rosie Perez plays her shady coworker named Megan Briscoe, who’ll probably have a major role in season 2.
The Hustler – ABC
When you think of streaming a show, it’s not usually trivia related, but this one is so good that I had to put it on the list for my fellow smokers who love a good mystery. The premise: There is one person among the group who is lying about being the hustler, and everyone else needs to figure out who it is. It sounds done before but once you meet the contestants. You can forget about anything else you’ve seen like it. Perfect show to watch and say ” I can do this shit,” as you take pulls.
Mr. Mayor – NBC
Ted Danson is pure hilarity, and he brings that Good Place charm over to his newest show Mr. Mayor, produced by Tina Fey. In the series, Danson plays Neil Bremer who is rich, retired, and only planned to run for Mayor of California to show his daughter what adults should do. Unfortunately, he has no idea either – especially while running an office. Thankfully, he has Holly Hunter, I mean, city council member Arpi Meskamin to whip him in shape. In the second episode, Mayor Bremer even has ganja on the agenda. We love a good show that just doesn’t bring up the weeds, but the uncomfortable convos that should come with white people talking about it.
Snowfall – FX
Only right I add this to the list. For people who wanted to watch it but for some reason never have – YOU NEED TO CHECK OUT SNOWFALL. With season 4 returning tomorrow (2/24), you have a little time to refresh with where we left Franklin. We’ve heard about the War on Drugs before, but this show is one of the first to truly depict the crack era, and how the United States government funded an illegal war to turn their soldiers into drug dealers, who then dumped crack into Black neighborhoods with the thought that Black people don’t matter and will eventually kill one another off. Yea, it shows the raw parts. Franklin Saint played by Damson Idris is the GOAT, despite what we know about Reagan’s really fucked up tenure. We can take pleasure in seeing Franklin take what’s his, BRICK BY BRICK!
Tell Me Your Secrets – Amazon Prime Video
This Amazon Prime dramatic thriller will have you wondering “what in the actual…?” for a good little minute. Alternating between flashbacks and present day, we learn about a woman named Kate (Lily Rabe) who’s in prison for allegedly aiding and abetting her boyfriend who’s also locked up for murdering multiple women. She’s visited by Mary (Amy Brenneman), the mother of one of the victims Theresa (Stella Baker), and from there, the series takes multiple turns. Kate is released from prison and placed in witness protection, where she’s definitely not safe. As the title warns, everyone has secrets. It’s difficult to tell the victim from the murderer. It’s a refreshing plot in a world filled with covid-inclusive plots and Groundhog Day time loops.
For the record: Agents of SHIELD does have a time loop episode, but there’s actual science involved (FitzSimmons voice).
