Psychotropic Segments
12 February 2015 | by Cowzilla15See all my reviews

I've been keeping up with this show since late 2012. I have loved just about every episode of the show. It is a psychedelic experience without the drugs. You will be amazed and you will be disturbed. Your mind will be blown.

The show is a collaboration of random shorts found on the internet and other various places mixed with trippy music videos and other off the wall stuff coupled with lots of "datamosh" transitions and a large variety of other crazy effects.

I would advise reviewing each episode for yourself before you show your kids any of them. There can be some very disturbing segments of the show.

I would recommend almost every episode of this show to anyone. The reason I say almost is because, in my opinion, the episode "Light" was a bit bland for my taste. But any other episode is definitely worth your time. You yourself may even enjoy the episode "Light"! Some may argue that you need to be high to get any enjoyment out of these shorts but I for one enjoy them just as much when I'm sober. Each episode is a thrill ride in itself and I tend to watch them over and over again. The transitions and animations never cease to amaze me.
