Like being stoned
Maybe there's a reason why one of the slangs for weed is Chino (Chinese). The stoner face turns a bit Chinese like in character. The Chinese themselves were very much influenced by Taoism and Zen - which advocates attention to the "Suchness" of things as they are.
And being stoned gives you this ability to look at the suchness of things. To look at every person you walk by as a story, as a suchness of its own. God - How did you miss all of this suchness before?
Watching the show does the same. There's no main character. There is only the suchness of many different characters, all shine in their own uniqueness. The episodes, the music, the stories - are all about that. And you better wait for the ending credits of each episode, which are even more of an hallucination than everything else.
I haven't watched this show stoned, though I seriously feel it already emulates the feeling pretty good for the viewer without the actual need for him to smoke. Though this is definitely a show that makes you wanna smoke - and I'm definitely going to have a 2nd round watching it once I pile up from my "Guy".
