Will drinking three glasses change Scott’s mind about this natty, sour, unfiltered Catalonian wine, or will he stand …
 
Part 1 of PARENTAL GUIDANCE, SUGGESTIONS Which of these two Cartoon Network spin-off movies made Jamie feel like he had taken hard drugs: the humanistic sci-fi musical fable STEVEN UNIVERSE: THE MOVIE, or the riotously silly meta comedy TEEN TITANS GO! TO THE MOVIES? Will Scott come around on this Catalonian bubbly pét-nat that initially gave him b…
 
To celebrate Robert Eggers' Viking epic THE NORTHMAN, we’re flashing back to our September 2021 discussion of his previous feature THE LIGHTHOUSE. Enjoy this reprise from the show’s early days.

To celebrate the success of EVERYTHING EVERYWHERE ALL AT ONCE, written and directed by Daniel Kwan and Daniel Schienert, we’re flashing back to our March 2021 discussion of their first feature SWISS ARMY MAN. Enjoy this reprise from the show’s early days. How well does this somm darling grape pair with a buddy comedy about a farting, reanimated cor…
 
This discussion contains actually shockingly few spoilers for the plot of THE BATMAN, but there are some! You've been warned!

How does the super serious vibe of director Matt Reeves’ three hour Bat-reboot pair with the bot…
 
Part 6 of Pinot Grigio vs THE M4TRIX Has Scott detected brettanomyces in this hazy red Pinot Gris from Willamette, or is Jamie just humoring him?

Part 4 of Pinot Grigio vs THE M4TRIX Which RESURRECTIONS performance made Scott’s personal 2021 Oscar ballot: Keanu Reeves as Neo, Carrie Anne Moss as Trinity, or Jonathan Groff as Smith? What’s the deal with the Rubber Ducky on Keanu’s head in the bathtub and how is it an unexpectedly apt metaphor for this show? How does Red Newt Cellars’ spirit o…

Which nominee does Jamie pair with a $250 bottle and just how much will his co-host shout about that price tag? What exactly are the three total laughs to be found in the two-and-a-half hour long “comedy” DON’T LOOK UP? Can Scott successfully express his l…
 
How will our criminally verbose hosts manage to discuss all ten nominees AND ten bottles paired with them in a single, reasonable-length episode? (Spoilers: they will not. TWO PARTER, BABY!)

How many broad generalizations about Gen X and Ge…
 
Part 1 of PINOT GRIGIO VS THE M4TRIX Why did Jamie pick a grape stereotypically associated with day drinkin’ white women to dedicate six episodes to?

How did the modernizing techniques of this producer lead to the ubiquity …

The Epic Conclusion of JAMIE’S HISTORY OF AMERICAN WINE Jamie swears the name* ‘Monkey Jacket’ has a connection to sea shanties, but his co-host is skeptical.

Which of our hosts cried at the end of this extremely silly movie? What exactly are the "youthful bits" of a wine? Is “journeyman” pejorative and do …

Jamie pairs that with a bubbly red that’s just starting to shake off the bad rap of a cheap, gross boomer favorite. AQUAMAN is currently available to stream…
 
EPISODE TWO TW: This episode deals with parental death and the grieving process. Scott attempts to make Jamie weep on mic by choosing this wonderfully painful documentary. Does Riesling lift spirits?
