    I watched the first episode and enjoyed it but was rather underwhelmed. Can't imagine what I expected but, there you go.

    He made fun of his younger self in an ok way. There really wasn't any large change to the way the steak was cooked compared to the original. A clarification that a rib eye steak is not a prime rib, yawn.

    He did a rather long bit on how to season an iron skillet and did it in a way I don't think I've seen before.

    Oh yeah, I liked the explanation of where the ten note theme came from. I'll keep watching.

    The original used a classic "sear it first" recipe whereas the Reloaded version is a modern "reverse-sear" recipe which, as he points out in the show, was Just Not Done before the 21st century. The new recipe also calls for aging the steak in the refrigerator for 6-24 hours.

    Original recipe: Pan-Seared Rib-Eye
    New recipe: Reverse-Sear Ribeye Steak

    Was looking forward to this and watched the first couple minutes, but it seems like a "pop up video" or impractical jokers: inside jokes type of setup. Is this the format for all the new episodes? I don't think I'm in to that and will probably just watch the reloaded episodes of my favorites.

    I enjoyed it. I actually thought that the percentage of new content was a lot higher than I expected. As noted, the whole procedure for aging then reverse searing the steak was entirely new, as was the segments on seasoning and cleaning the cast iron. The other stuff, like the inside info on the government agents, the theme tune, and other stuff was just a neat little bonus.

    In any case, this "Reloaded" is just an appetizer before "Return of the Eats" premieres next year.

    I think the big difference between then and now, is that now there are numerous videos out there covering the same things. I've watch tons of cooking videos on YT, so what Alton is saying is nothing new to me.

    I'll still watch it for the nostalgia and inside info on the previous incarnation.

    I watched it via the CookingChannel website. Had issues with the player. And based on some comments here, it seems like I missed some parts of it somehow.

    I loved watching that show. Nothing fancy just easy things for single people in their 20's.

    i liked it. Always liked him and Good Eats. And with almost every prime time show on Food Network and Cooking Channel some kind of competition it's nice to have a show about cooking for a change, even if it is a retread of sorts.

    I really like the 'reloads'. I love when he just eviscerates his younger self.

    I also like the mirror+camera rig.. I've been trying to figure out how they have that rigged up with cameras and tracks and stuff, and they reveal that and other cool stuff in this short facebook video:

    I really liked the lemon meringue reload, and was surprised to changed so little in the chocolate one. It didn’t seem reloaded to me,

    Back in the day (2001) I made my own Good Eats home video (puffy chocolate chip cookies). I was inspired by AB's reload to do my own, so last month I re-edited the original with new footage. I tried the mirror trick and it was hard. :) My rig was definitely simpler than his (and my wife's mirror a lot smaller), ha!

    The Guide data has been corrected and properly shows S15E01 and S15E02 on Sunday.

    I think it’s just as good as the original. I do like that they got the same supporting characters, at least I recognize W.

    Yeah, the data was borked last time I checked. Fixed now. I'm also looking to the two episodes of Reloaded that follow the Return. I don't get the Cooking Channel so I haven't seen it either. Two consecutive hours of Good Eats, one new, one newish.

    I hope so as I no longer have Food Network. However, the first episode on YouTube was not commercial free...you were forced to watch (no skipping or fast forward) a few commercials. At least that’s how it was for me.
