TV shows to binge watch that also star lots of alcohol

Happy Cinco de Mayo! If you’re staying in this year, there are plenty of shows that will make you feel like you’re at a party.

Gone are the days when drinking on television meant that a character had a problem. Now fun drunks are all the rage, from “Cougar Town” to “How I Met Your Mother.” Sure, “Boardwalk Empire” is pretty violent, but isn’t the lesson that alcohol should be legal?

From the classic “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” to “Mad Men,” we rounded up the best modern shows featuring alcohol. Lots and lots of alcohol, that is.
