This web series from Alex Goldberg and Steven Brahms is the best thing we’ve ever watched with a weed smoking alien. Yes, even better than Paul.

Here’s the premise:

He crash landed on Blue Dream, one of the marijuana obsessed planets in the galaxy of Sinsimilla-8. Suffering from acute amnesia he remembers little of life on Earth. In an effort to jog his memories of the human experience, he has been teamed with an alien scientist who specializes in memory retrieval.
