I enjoy his particular brand of manic food autism. His wife is a grade A cunt though.

Above all a comfy show; I'd wager nobody actually ever made that Tandoori oven out of clay pots. But he has some legit cool DIY shit on the show, more often than not backs his shit up and is willing to go back to an older episode and correct himself when/if he thinks of a better way to do something.

Also those stupid yeast puppets never cease to get a laugh out of me.

Holy shit. I watched their youtube show for a while, but she was completely insane. She had little to no interest in what he actually did to provide money for her. She had never even seen any of his shows. He tried to get her to watch an episode and she mocked it for a bit, got bored, and wandered off. She was constantly trying to derail what he was saying with some kind of political statement. She made fun of him in more than just a friendly way. You could tell it bothered him. She'd also talk all the time how she was a groupie, and you could tell she'd fucked more than her share of band members.

Good Eats: Excellent, an all around great show.
Iron Chef: Good commentator, not annoying.
Modern: No clue.
I know he was also a host/commentator for some other competition shows but his original series will always be the best to me.

I saw one of his live "performances" in san jose, CA last year. I was hoping for a cooking show like situation but it was really just him telling stories about his life and aluding to really deep 'good eats' references that his superfans absolutely loved. ultimately pretty boring, didn't really find him funny, and was disappointed.

overall I like him the most on iron chef. really don't like cutthroat kitchen

>> No.18021980

I went to one several years ago. It was entertaining, but I wouldn't go to another one. His schtick works best in a studio where he can have the time to agonize over the details to make every frame count.

Good Eats is probably the best food show ever made. Even though a lot of his recipes tend to be a little fussy and complicated for me to want to try them, I learned how to cook steak from him and his stovetop mac and cheese recipe is great.

The new Iron Chef show on Netflix is pretty good; it's missing some of the charm of previous iterations, but I like the Iron Chefs and having Andrew Zimmern as a permanent judge was a good choice. I also liked that the chairman chooses the Iron Chef for the challenger, I wish Iron Chef America had done that so it wasn't fucking Bobby Flay 75% of the time

>> No.18022104

That's how it originally started. Even after they supposedly started giving the challenger the choice, it was scripted based on whichever Iron Chef could be in town for the taping.

You realize that he isn't the one who sets the price, right? The company that he works with books the venue and bases ticket prices off of the price of the booking, the expense of putting the set together and buying materials, and the wages of all the staff, plus profit. Depending on your city, the venues can be absolutely retarded expensive which drive up the ticket prices.
