Great show, it was shot and broadcast in HD.
Scott A. Redd
Zane's job is the envy of most who like drinking, traveling, and having a built-in designated driver.
David Koch
It's easy to make at home too and good in bloody marys the owner said.

Great show, it was shot and broadcast in HD. Is it that cost prohibitive to release it on Blu-ray?
Oh well, Season 2 is coming to HDNet in a few months and we're hoping for a new season of Three Sheets also!

Drinking Made Easy isn't just a TV show, it is also a drinking game. Within each episode, Zane and Steve introduce you to a game so that you can drink along while watching the show. The whole idea here is not to overdo it. If you lose, all you need to do is take a sip. So play along and enjoy your favorite beverage with your guest during the show. There are clever rules to the game; rule #1: if you are the first person to see Pleepleus (Pleepleus is a little monkey) hiding out somewhere around during the show, you can get someone to take a drink. Rule #2: if Zane or someone in his entourage makes a mistake in continuity--if you notice an inconsistency from one scene to the next and if you are the first one to spot this, then you can make someone drink. Rule #3: when there's a challenge, pick a side. If you lose, you have to take a drink. In addition, Zane and Steve will face off in the six, six-pack challenge. Whenever they have a challenge of sorts during the show, Marc will pick who he thinks will win the contest. If that person wins the bet, the winner gets six six-packs of beer.

Drinking Made Easy is a great show for anyone who likes to drink and has a sense of humor. Host Zane Lamprey and his sidekick Steve McKenna (along with correspondent Mark Ryan) drink their way across the United States imbibing on the local favorites in whatever town they are in. The shows always include some sort of eating challenge and a six six-pack challenge where Mr. Lamprey & Mr. McKenna bet six six packs against each other in some sort of game like keg tossing, beer pong, darts, pool, kicking field goals at Cowboys stadium, bowling etc. Mr. Lamprey has something of an iron stomach and didn't lose an eating challenge all season. He ate some insane amounts of food like finishing off a six pound deep dish Chicago pizza. The show is heavy on humor and Mr. McKenna is always the butt of the joke. The show also shares the ingredients for most of the drinks made on the show. The show is part travelogue, part alcohol history lesson and part stunt eating & drinking. It all mixes up to a funny, kick ass show.

-----------------------------------------------------
"Drinking Made Easy, Season One"
(HD Network, 2011)
-----------------------------------------------------
This road-trip/pub crawl foodie show features host Zane Lamprey and his sidekicks Steve McKenna and Marc Ryan, reprising their roles in the similarly-themed "Three Sheets" program. Basically, they drive to a city -- New York, Boston, Seattle, Austin, etc. -- and go boozing at a few of the hot local bars, breweries or distilleries. They get bartenders or brewers to chat with them and share their wares, which inevitably get tossed back in a single shot or chugged in some sort of competition, and Lamprey gabs his way through the filming, invariably making their hosts (and the viewers) laugh. He's a very charming drunk.

The style of drinking - fast and furious - is very fraternity-pledge oriented, but Lamprey himself has a mild, winsome, likable personality and doesn't play up the oafishness that collegiate binge-drinkers are known for. Thus, the show has a lighthearted feel, and largely avoids the potential pitfalls of a "Jackass"-style MTV lowest-common-denominator presentation. The voiceover narration helps keep things light - it reminds me a lot of Roger Lodge's glib narrations on "Blind Date" in the 1990s. (Does that sound like a guilty pleasure confession? Yeah, well, DME is, too...)

The show is fun and dumb but not as crude or crass as it could be - Steve McKenna has weekly eating competitions (eating ten-pound burritos, etc.) which are gross but not graphic; all in all the show is surprisingly tasteful. And if you want to learn about how various drinks are made -- beer, vodka, gin, wine, etc. -- and prepared (martinis, et.al.) there's some interesting info.

My boyfriend and I love watching this, usually on a Friday or Saturday night when we don't feel like going out but still want to drink. It's fun to learn about the different drinks, and hilarious to watch Zane trying to make drinks when he is sh**faced.
