So I’m usually late to all of the really hot trends. This is no different. Once I discovered the interconnectedness of the Marvel Cinematic Universe my OCD brain exploded and I immediately wanted to start meticulously watching them in chronological order. Also, I’ve heard Netflix will lose rights to the films within the year and we won’t access on that platform soon, so I best get moving.
Since I’m already obsessively engaged, I might as well go whole hog and record all of the drinking and drinks in the movies and TV episodes…in order. It’s gotta be done sooo….
In Agent Carter Season 1 we see the tally being effected by the New York setting, heavy 50s urban cocktailing and the overwhelming prevalence of Scotch and bourbon, the Russian plot line providing a little vodka and the playboy status of Howard Stark bumping up the general intoxication of the season. It’ll be interesting to […]
Does this stuff implode, explode or spice up an old fashioned? It’s not surprising Dooley knows the old fashioned given the times even if he would just prefer straight scotch. #BittersInEverything #RogersInEverything Two glasses of white wine in Dooley’s home life fantasy. I had a little trouble with this one. You can note in […]
Holy shit there is so much drinking in this episode it was hard to track. Not only was there a lot of drinking but just a lot of story crammed into 45 minutes. I felt like I had just watched 3 episodes with everything that happened, but amazingly I don’t feel like I was cheated […]
It doesn’t take long and we realize that season 2 happens in Los Angeles. What does this mean for the booze tally? I’m not 100% sure yet, but I expect we’re going to see a lot of Hollywood and potentially movie executives, so there could be a level or elevated amount of drinking this season, […]
Let’s take a break. How about a drink? Thank you. How about two? Dooley pours himself and Dr. Ivchenko two short glasses of brown liquid…it came from Dooley’s office so it is scotch. Dooley pours 3 more through the scene talking with the doctor. I need you to go to your favorite bar. Order a […]
This was a very boozy episode. It also brings back other characters from the Captain America movie which is something I appreciate for the continuity. Dum-Dum Dougan asks Peggy if she brought him what he asked. When she produces a bottle she says is from her own private stash he says The Germans are geniuses […]
Something I really like about this show is the inclusion of Howard Stark, Tony Stark’s grandfather. That kind of legacy to the story is really cool. Sherry: In the car ride back to Howard Stark’s, Howard is looking to diffuse tension of the circumstances. He does this by suggesting that they will have the leisure […]
I think you’ve had a few too many martinis to fly a plane This is from a flashback of how Howard Stark was infiltrated by the Russian spy-assassin Dottie Underwood. He invites her to fly with him. She rejects the offer based on his intoxication. So this scene shows us how Stark was compromised, but […]
I love it when a story doesn’t shy away from escalating the costs of a dangerous lifestyle. The plot is moving right along, not plodding…so much so there isn’t much time for boozing. After removing the primary assassin from play, the SSR goes and checks out his room. I’m actually quite surprised to see a […]
In the second episode we get to see just how bad the bad guys are. We get to know the killer henchman a little more; cruel, efficient, unrelenting, but we also learn there is a larger entity he reports to…in a typewriter. Glass of Port: One of the hits is a shady dealer (presumably weapons) […]
