Had High school been this much fun, I would have paid attention much more often.

Mike Rowe & company have done an outstanding and incredibly entertaining job of showing American history as seen through the bottom of a shot glass.

First, I must say the ease at purchasing the entire series and having a new series land in my in-box each week by far the most efficient way to get the latest episodes a day after they air.

Next, we can review the series itself. This Discovery Channel did a great job producing this series. It details the truth of American men and their quest for liquor. Our History has had too much 'sugar' applied to it to give the assumption we are a perfect culture which is far from the truth. Mike Rowe has to be the most entertaining host in modern Television. His voice, humor, and story telling talents makes any series with his presents excellent material for your viewing pleasure.

Mike Rowe & company have done an outstanding and incredibly entertaining job of showing American history as seen through the bottom of a shot glass. There are many surprising historical anecdotes regarding the American Revolution, Johnny Appleseed, Wyatt Earp, John Jacob Astor and even George Washington's (maybe) STD's! :) Never really thought about how much of our history was influenced (literally) or took place in pubs/bars and around alcohol. Mike Rowe continues to be the most down-to-earth and entertaining TV personality out there today. His singing of the original british pub song that shares a melody with our national anthem is TV gold --nine lusty maids and all! This show is definitely worth a look-see and can be best enjoyed while consuming an adult-beverage.

Not only is the subject matter interesting, it has the added bonus of Mike Rowe as host. I really think Mike could make watching paint dry entertaining

This effort from Discovery takes some historical details and presents them in a very entertaining presentation. Host Mike Rowe is his normal, charming, everyman self. His laid-back delivery and ad libs make for a great deal of historical fun. The production also is buoyed by entertaining graphics and a host of silly vignettes that keep the presentation light.

This is not a grim historical presentation from the BBC. It is light, entertaining history that shines a light on details that are not part of the typical high school history class. It's simply not that serious.

Sit back and relax while you enjoy it -- maybe even enjoy a drink while you do it.
