He does NOT look good in hi-def.
I still record the show (first run only) but confess I don't really enjoy them anymore. The focus is more and more bizarre (wasn't a recent one on water?) and I'm getting too old to put up with his cheezy skits. Obviously I am in the thumbs down category for the Sweeney Todd episode.
I still enjoy Good Eats, but over the last couple years the quality seems to have gone down...fewer funny and interesting shows...maybe they're running out of ideas/recipes.
The cooking show I'd like to see again is Taste with David Rosengarten. I wish they'd rerun it or even put it on DVD. That show taught me a lot about food and about what beers and wines go with what foods. I also appreciated the fact that David would give equal treatment to something as simple a Reuben sandwich or a complex as Peking duck.
I have started recording the show again, and catch an ep every once in a while after Kaylee goes to bed. It's still pretty good, but I'd contend that the quality peaked when they were in the real "new" kitchen, not the set. There was just something about that season or two that really clicked for the show.
Of course, the real thing they're suffering from is lack of new material. Although I'm still shocked that he hasn't done a lasagna episode.
I'm the opposite! This is one of the only things my kids and I both watch. I'll put it on while I fold laundry and all of a sudden I'll have helpers.
For you Atlanta peeps:
Good Eats Live
There's also a contest involved ... I'm seriously tempted to just buy a ticket and fly up for the day.
The First volume of the Good Eats Cookbook trilogy is coming. I wonder if there is a fourth volume planned if the show runs until the next ice age?
There is a fun editing the volume video at altonbrown.com
I don't like the ones that are all done in character. I find it hard to follow the science and the instructions. Probably makes it fun for a lot of people, but I just want the cooking, straight up.
I couldn't resist ... I've got a ticket to the 2pm show!
I like good eats its entertaining and it explains the why and how behind the cooking. Food network airs new episodes so infrequently that it makes me glad that I have a season pass.
I still like Good Eats -- even though the show is a mere shadow of its former self. It and Barefoot Contessa are the only FN shows I still watch.
I don't really care who the next FN star is going to be, or who can build the tallest cake and move it 20 feet without dropping. May be entertaining for some, but bores me to tears.
I'd like to see more cooking shows, not shows merely related to cooking.
And yes, bring back Taste!
Taste! was always interesting.
And bring back the old 'How To Boil Water" with the comedian Sean Donnellan and chef Cathy Lowe. sorry for the OT
I have always liked GE, if its some food I wouldn't eat I still learn something.
So is anyone else from TCF going to Good Eats Live in Atlanta next weekend? I'm going to the 2pm show ... can't wait!
"Good Eats Turns 10" was awesome! I had a great time ... it's going to be a great episode (airs on October 10). Alton and Ted were hilarious, as were the rest of the cast that made appearances.
Well worth the drive to Atlanta and back this weekend.
I've been watching good eats for a while and now I find myself zipping through the majority of his show because of the stupid skits and boring science experiments. And my eyes hurt from rolling them every time he says "more taste to the party", "but that's another show", or "just walk away". He's a little too "fussy" for my taste and have found "Tyler's Ultimate" to be a much better show without everything having to be "just so" or it's no good.
Just a reminder that the anniversary show airs tomorrow night, and the new season starts on Monday night.
Check out the smoothie video. Don't try this at home.
Alton Brown Makes A Smoothie
On the Jimmy Fallon show
Alton on the View
Alton's lost some weight. Can we trust a skinny chef?
Food Network's Alton Brown showed Harry Smith how to cook the perfect egg.
That's what he did (will do) in the live show ... pretty impressive.
I'm not sure I want to watch anyone make a "smoothie".
I'm one of the biggest GE fans around, but that anniversary show was awful TV.
