Thread: Food Network-Out of Touch?

    Default Food Network-Out of Touch?

    The Food Network has some good personalities and programs (I love Giada's
    cleavage), but they are out of touch with reality. Sandra Lee is just an
    idiot.

    Real people just don't make that sort of stuff on a daily basis.

    Iron Chef is a fantasy that none of us will actually make-but love to look
    at.

    Agree or disagree?

    Who's your favorite and why?

    I haven't watched Food Network in so long I'm not even sure who has a
    show on it or not. I like Alton Brown's show because it is informative.
    I still like Paula Deen even though I think her show is way off base from
    it's original intent. Rachel Ray and Sandra Lee are jokes. RR has a
    show on Network TV as well now and I watched it for maybe 5 minutes. Same
    old jabber and crap she spouts on the Food Network. For the most part I
    no longer watch any of them.

    No favorites. In fact, I barely watch it anymore.

    I just switched over to FN and Dinner Impossible is on. I don't like
    the premise of that show, but at least the star isn't a raving maniac.
    The reason I'm watching it is because I'm not a political junkie so I
    don't watch *those* channels (but get updates from the political
    junkie in the other room anyway), plus I'd seen the HGTV (which I'm
    addicted to) show at least twice and didn't want to watch it again.

    I'm with you, mostly. Alton Brown is ok. I absolutely loathe Rachel
    Ray... it's just something about referring to sandwiches as "sammies"
    that makes it really hard to take anything else seriously. Cooking
    for idiots.

    I do kind of like the cake show, though... Ace of Cakes? Just because
    it's fun to watch them make these things.

    I almost never watch it, except when there's nothing else at all on
    and I need some noise.

    I thought of you yesterday. I was flying down Ballas Road yesterday
    trying to get to Manchester before the 3pm traffic clog and a car pulled
    out of a subdivision in front of me with the license plates... D'BUGG.
    Cracked me up.

    LOL!! That is too funny. I'd thought of getting the same personalized plate
    here in WA, but decided the extra cost each year to be vain wasn't worth it.

    This NYT times article on Lee pretty much says it all:


    "...seems more intent on encouraging people to create excuses for not
    cooking than on encouraging them to cook wholesome simple foods,.."

    "...she has produced two books in which she encourages a dislike for
    cooking, and gives people an excuse for feeding themselves and their
    families mediocre food filled with preservatives.."

    I'm a relative newcomer to cable tv. My city wasn't wired for it
    until fairly late in the game. IMO, FoodTV never did measure up to
    the hype it got here on rfc. PBS was and still is better.
