Episode 115: Somm
Somm takes the viewer on a humorous, emotional and illuminating look into the mysterious world of the Court of Master Sommeliers and their massively intimidating Master Sommelier Exam.
First, some programming notes; I would like to apologize for the missed weeks and late podcasts this season. We used to have a small buffer of extra episodes to throw into the feed when either of us needed to skip a week but now we no longer have that luxury so when schedule slips occur, the entertainment is delayed. We've lost Donald's Dungeon and The Morning Dump to busy schedules and as life continues to do as life does, the occasional Random Review will slip as well. I feel like I'm talking to the wind here but if it wasn't for the analytical data I collect that shows we have listeners, I wouldn't type the following request out: If you listen to the show, send us an email or a tweet and let us know. Just hearing from other Netflix fans energizes us into canceling important life events to make a greater effort to do a better job. We love watching movies and getting together to talk about them every week but your feedback can take us to the next level. Until we get there, the occasional week will be missed because Noor keeps having birthdays on recording day. Your tweets will stop Noor from having like 7 birthdays this year.
Anyway, this week we watched a bunch of bros talk out of their asses about wine. Somm was an excellent documentary and we learned more about wine than we expected. It follows the story of five sommeliers as they study for the exam that will grant them the title of Master in their field. It's hard to take bros seriously because, as I mentioned, they talk with their butts and Gordon and I tend not to associate with butt-talkers. I used to think being a sommelier was a made-up profession but it turns out these guys were able to huff grape fumes to the point of becoming made men. It was fascinating. Give Somm a watch, which we gave a completely average rating, but if you're unfamiliar with the show, an average rating for a Random Netflix movie is like winning an Oscar. After the news, we're rambling about A Quiet Place, Blockers, Super Troopers, and Super Troopers 2. Next week, we're watching Sarajevo.
