If you haven’t been keeping up with what is hip and with it, don’t worry. We at Wine Gifted spend a lot of time reading things on the internets. We’ll keep you informed, so you don’t sound like a stupid idiot around friends, co-workers, and/or mortal enemies. Today, we’re going to talk about the hottest provider of on-demand streaming media (you see how cool we sound when we say that)…Netflix. There’s been a lot of buzz around several of the original shows that the this multinational source of streaming entertainment (man, sooo cool) has produced. We’re here to tell you not only what these shows are, but what you should be drinking when you watch.
If you’re going to watch a show about an alcoholic ex-superhero suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, you should really try to step into the shoes of the character to get a good feel for the show. This is why JIM BEAM BOURBON is only way to go. Also, you’ll need to drink every time she does, so cancel all your appointments for at least 4 days after watching the show.
House of Cards
A thrilling drama about the ruthless tactics of politician Frank Underwood. SCOTCH pairs well with stuffy white politicians. Sip and get ready to be horrified by the inner workings of the American political system.
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt
A show about a young woman that is introduced to the modern world after living underground with a cult for 15 years. If you really want to get into it, you’ll need a drink that is as naive and inexperienced as Kimmy. HI-C AND VODKA is the perfect drink for this.
Orange is the New Black
A delightful comedy about a young executive adjusting to life behind bars after she is sentenced to 15 months for being associated with a drug runner. Take in all the laughs while sipping on the best TOILET WINE you can get your hands on.
A revival of the Full House series that last aired in 1995, which documented the lives of widower Danny Tanner and his family. The show tackled tough issues like murder, drug abuse, and racism. Just kidding. It was 100% a family show that coined the catch phrases “You got it, dude”, “How rude”, and “Cut it out”, which were spoken by a baby, a little girl, and a man-child. If you’re going to revive a 90s powerhouse, you’re going to need to revive a 90s powerhouse drink. Pick up some ZIMA. Sure, it was discontinued in 2008, but I’m sure you can get it on some online auction site, or out of someone’s basement.
Making a Murderer
An enraging documentary about WI man Steven Avery who was exonerated after spending 18 years in prison for a crime he did not commit. Shortly after suing the county, he was convicted of murdering a young woman. The filmmakers present evidence in a manner that suggests that WI officials, in the least, poorly handled the case, or, in the most, framed Avery for murder. DRINK ANYTHING STRONG THAT YOU CAN GET YOUR HANDS ON. That’s the only way you’ll get through it without throwing your T.V. or computer out of a window.
Trust us, if you talk about how you like to watch Netflix and sit in a relaxing manner (NEVER say “Netflix and chill”), everyone will be in awe of how in tune you are with current pop culture.
