The Best Nature Shows To Watch When You're Drunk

Updated March 2, 2021 394 votes 11 voters84 items

If you've ever pounded back a few and wanted to sit down to watch something on the television, odds are you tuned into a nature show and settled in for the night. For whatever reason, nature shows and a lack of sobriety go together in a way that few could explain or understand, but everyone who's been in that situation can appreciate. Watching animals play in a meadow, fish swim through the seas, or birds fly through the sky just work when you're wasted. Besides, animals often partake in fermented sugars themselves, so they get it.

Being drunk generally means not being able to follow a story, which is one of the best reasons watching nature shows during that time works best. Granted, there are tons of them to choose from to fit your particular drunk, but which is the right nature show for you? Do you want to see weird stuff like River Monsters and The Most Extreme or do you just want the soothing visuals of Planet Earth II? The best nature shows to watch while intoxicated are listed below, but don't forget to add your favorites and vote for the shows you think is the very best of them all! Drunk people will definitely appreciate it!
