Disjointed Animations


While it did take a few episodes to get moving, Netflix’s ‘Disjointed’ was exactly what you’d want out of a network sitcom situated around the ganja. Diverse and relatable characters accompanied by an awkward studio audience. The best parts no doubt though, were the recurring animation sequences when the security guard spaced out and the visuals kicked in. A nod to the creative culture who championed the herb for so long.
