  1. S14.02: Destination Videos 2018.06.17

    I don’t mind Amy but i think it is a joke that Adam is on the show. I know that a bunch of them have prior TV experience but he was on FN already so how can that make him the “next” food network star unless what they really mean is “The Next Person who used to be on Food Network and We are determined to Try Once Again to Make a Star.” And i say that as someone who enjoyed Adam on Best Thing I Ever Ate. But this show is supposed to be about introducing new people not repackaging people who have already been on. Although if they have any self-awareness if he wins maybe they will make the final challenge be about making something interesting with pre-packaged food...

    Can’t you propose it as a thread on either the bachelor or more likely bachelorette (since they are running at the same time)? That is what they did with Love at First Flight (don’t ask how i know).
  3. The Bachelorette in the Media

    You are right. She might actually be worth watching. Which is more than you can say for the past few seasons of or/ette
  4. Shouldn't they call it a 7th chance show...for the judges?
  5. S14.E01: Are You a Main Attraction? 2018.06.10

    That’s interesting because I was pretty surprised by how often he wasn’t better than anyone else. He has plenty of experience and time on TV but when he was managing the team he forgot they were supposed to talk about food and his last bit when he didn’t use tongs and couldn’t shuck oysters should have gotten him tossed precisely because he had more experience. But i agree with you that the whole “well yes i had a chance 10 years ago and it didn’t work out but i want to show people how much I’ve grown” story line is too much. But as with so many of these shows FNS is becoming a parody of itself.
  6. Books vs Show: Has It Gone All Pear-Shaped Yet?

    That's really interesting. It seemed worse to me in the book somehow. Maybe because Miller in the book seemed more like a classic washed out detective and the whole obsession just seemed completely overdrawn and too quick. The only thing that seemed real to me was the idea that he would continue because he had been told to stop. But even so I never really got it there.
  7. S13.E01: Face Your Fears 2018.06.05

    Someone upthread pointed out that they probably couldn’t get the real all-stars because they are all working too much. If this is really the final season then they should have brought back all the winners or only finalists if they wanted to claim it was all-stars. I can’t say that i was particularly excited to see any of them and nothing this week changed my mind. I hope it picks up.

    Who is Arie again?
  9. Small Talk: Who Are You?

    Not sure where to put this but all 5 seasons are now available on Amazon Prime.
  10. Season 14: Speculation and Spoilers

    I’m sure that helps. But I’m more amazed that anyone could be in that franchise and tell people to wait and “get to know them for who they really are.” Are we supposed to suddenly forget that the show is edited to show us what the producers want to show?
  11. The Bachelor in the Media

    Given the likely ratings with those two i suspect it would be “Flop Phoenix.”
  12. S14.E01: Week 1: Season Premiere

    They broke up in the Spring of 2017. When did Bachelorette casting take place?
  13. The Bachelorette in the Media

    That Is true about pretty much everything that has ever been said in the Bachelor franchise.
  14. Final Season Wishlist: What Do You Want To See?

    Given how nuts this show is don't you think they should have Barbara Gordon be some previously unknown young niece that Jim has to raise because her parents died trying to find the Ark of the Covenant?
  15. The Bachelorette in the Media

    You may be right but i think we are supposed to think that she is so enthusiastic to find the love of her life in traditional Bachelorette fashion that she can’t wait to get going. No more waitin around for her!
