    It's on Food Network tonight beginning at 10:00 PM EDT/9:00 PM CDT.

    Although it is listed as season 15 in the guide, I suspect it got slotted in as a new series ID number, and therefore a season pass for the old show won't grab it. (Probably worth a post over to the Season Pass Alerts forum...)

    I'm also guessing it will be available for purchase on iTunes and maybe other services. You can purchase Reloaded for $2.99 per episode or $17.99 for the whole 13-episode season on iTunes. (I know, that's pretty expensive!) But the point is, they don't generally make their shows available with a solely ad-supported model, so YouTube doesn't fit a bill, other than as a promotional tool. (YouTube TV is a different story.)

    Amazon has the season on sale for $2.99 in HD today. You get the episodes as they release (not all at once).

    I don't see that deal, anymore. (I did see it, earlier this morning, when I checked on my phone.) Now, it looks like $24.99 for season. Was $2.99 a pricing error?

    It might have been. I see $24.99 now too. I did buy it this morning at $2.99

    Season 33 of Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives still looks to be $1.99 if that interests anyone:

    Amazon frequently "mistakenly" prices full seasons at the single episode price, especially before the season starts to air. Generally as soon as the first episode airs, that goes away and it's back to full price for the season, and often the "mistaken" rate is only available for a short time. To me, it happens way too much for it to be a true mistake, but it could be a glitch in how they produce listings, but it's known well enough that I'm surprised it hasn't been fixed yet. (I know last season I picked up 4 or 5 shows this way myself, figuring the $2-$3 for the whole season of a show was worth it to not have the commercials.)

    I'm somewhat annoyed that in Canada, it hasn't quite aired yet I believe, but now "Good Eats" are all listed as "Good Eats: The Return" now. Thought I got lucky seeing it in the To Do list, but no, they are the old Good Eats episodes. They just renamed the show listing making it just impossible to determine which ones are the new episodes.

    Two totally brand new episodes so far. And so far I don't think I want to actually make any of the things he has made.

    The chia pudding looked pretty good, but first I'd have to buy a blender :).

    The episode with the quinoa, broccoli and mushroom casserole inspired last night's dinner. Diced marinated grilled chicken, spinach, whole wheat rotini, all mixed with a Parmesan/ricotta/mozzarella/herb cream sauce, topped with marinara, more parm and moz, finished in the oven then garnished with fresh Basil. I didn't use Alton's ingredients, but it did inspire my "Italian mac'n'cheese".

    I'm with Smeeker. The first two episodes were bad. Jokes heavy handed, food parts uninspiring. His Parm can be summarized as to just reduce the tomato sauce and Voila! I don't for a minute think that 'real' San Marzano tomatoes makes a big difference. I've spent the money and was not impressed. And the quinoa chia episode was a waste and a reach. The casserole was way too much work for that uninspiring result and the pudding was just pudding. Buy the cups from the store because we get all the protein we need from other sources. Pudding should be a fun treat.

    I can't even guess what the next episode will address.

    Well, given I have seen zero advertising on this, in Canada, it's apparently on Food Network Saturdays 10pm E/P. Just decided to go through all the entries of "Good Eats" and found a few that were on Food Network rather than Cooking Channel and of those, ones that have air dates in 2019.

    I didn't think the episode itself was bad.. it's just that the food he made didn't appeal to me enough to actually make any of it.

    That's how I feel. Which is also how I felt about a good many of the foods from its original run. I still learn stuff, I'm entertained, just not something I want to eat. Though the broccoli quinoa* cheese casserole might be good instead of my normal broccoli rice casserole I make for holidays.

    *I wrote quinoa, saw no red line, but still doubted myself on the spelling, so googled it, and I impressed myself with spelling it right on the first try.
