I have only just recently, as a man in his thirties, began cooking. I’ve taken to it pretty well, though I have to follow a recipe to make anything more advanced than pasta or an omelet. However, over the years I’ve watched many cooking-related TV show. There are the competition shows, of course. Like every right-thinking American I’m a Chopped fan. I’ve recommended Cutthroat Kitchen as a weekend binge. Those shows aren’t really about cooking, though. That wasn’t the case with Good Eats, another show I watched for years and years. The odd thing there, of course, is that I was watching a cooking show at a time when I never did any cooking.
The reason to bring Good Eats up now is because the show has been rebooted after going off the air in 2012. Good Eats: The Return will make its debut, or re-debut as it were, on August 25. I’m looking forward to it, especially now than I cook. The reason I watched it back in the day, though, was because for a cooking show it was a lot of fun to watch.
