Drink Your Television

What are our favorite cult television characters drinking this week? This one caught me by surprise: Colin Farrell and Rachel McAdams pound a bottle of Wiser's Canadian on this week's True Detective. Canadian whisky on prime time? When did I get the CBC as part of my Comcast network package? Bravo. I love Wiser's, so this was a big moment for me.

Meanwhile, over on Mr. Robot, the not-so-friendly DA pulls out a bottle of Buffalo Trace to pour into her morning coffee. Ten years ago this would have been—with 100% certainty—a bottle of Jack Daniels. But we unsophisticated, brainless television addicts all know that TV is better than it's ever been. Hence, she's drinking Buffalo Trace.
