    We didn't get commercials - but we also subscribe to YouTube Premium - or whatever it's called - but we never see ads.

    Does the fire in the fireplace in the opening scene look like total CGI to anyone else?

    The reloads had a lot of green screen work. I’m sure the new ones are the same.

    I wonder if the full kitchen set even exists any more?

    It looked like a normal, fake electric fireplace, then kind that you can set so that it does not put out any heat ("for only flame effect"). Living here outside of Atlanta, that's what I would use if I knew I was going to be filming most of my scenes during our seven month long summer.

    I assumed it was a display running an animation of a fireplace.

    The "behind the scenes" video certainly seems to confirm this. At least, to me it sure looks like it.

    Ok, it was late.. I just used "CGI" as a shortcut for "totally not a real fireplace".

    That's pretty much what I was getting at. If it's a display running an animation of a fireplace, isn't that still CGI? :)

    If I had to guess, it's just a free sample, and the rest of the season will not be on YouTube.

    My wife’s editor at <major book publisher> says that “lame” is considered ableist and shouldn’t be used.

    Same here. Good thing Good Eats: The Return is on Food Network, which I get. Also good that Good Eats: Reloaded is being repeated on Food Network, after premiering on Cooking Channel. Like, tonight. In a few hours. 2 hours of Good Eats, 1 new, 1 new to me.

    I could swear that when Alton announced the show (under the title or nickname "Return of the Eats") that he said it'd be available both on TV, and streaming, and that the streamed version would be a slightly extended version. I wonder if those plans changed along the way?

    Edit: I thought that's what he said...
    Alton Brown Confirms 'Good Eats' Is Coming Back

    To be clear, that's an article from 2017. (Hard to believe it's been that long since the announcement...) As mentioned, many things may have changed from then to now.

    Well, pretty much everything is available for streaming on foodnetwork.com, but only with a cable or satellite subscription. (There's a limited amount of content there that is free, though.) I wouldn't be surprised to see extended episodes and extras show up there, as well.

    I suppose "Streaming" here means cookingchannel.com and not YouTube? That still does me no good. At least, I don't think it does.

    Unclear what he meant back then. It was a somewhat vague statement, and as said, may have changed over the last two years.

    And to be clear (pedantic?), Good Eats The Return is a Food Network show, not a Cooking Channel show.
