Binge-worthy shows part 2: their drinking games


Earlier in the semester, we highlighted four shows (“American Vandal,” “How I Met Your Mother,” “Game of Thrones,” and “Sons of Anarchy”) within four categories (Docu-Series, Sitcom, Fantasy, and Crime Drama) that were deemed “binge-watch” worthy. If you haven’t gotten the chance to view any of the four yet, don’t fret, they aren’t going anywhere anytime soon. But if you’ve been hesitant to start any one of them, for one reason or another, perhaps you need some extra motivation. Here are four drinking games we found to accompany your binge watching (but only if you’re 21 or older).
