I hate this show so much. Best of? More like Worst Ever.
It’s like watching a travelling infomercial. Mark Silverstein and Jill Cordes are to food what your local weatherman is to meteorology. Actual, they’re worse. There’s something corrupt about this show: money is changing hands somewhere. Basically Mark and Jill go across the country and eat at restaurants and that’s it. I’m sure the Food Network calls ahead, I’m sure they’re getting the food free and I think that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
I mean, it’s not like the places that they go to are notable or culturally significant. For example, they’re in Atlanta right now (I live there) and where do they go? Dante’s Down The Hatch, a Buckhead fondue spot that I hear is way overrated and way expensive. It’s not like Atlanta is known for its fondue.
They’re letting the owner talk to the camera now: “Fondue is great for conversation—I’ll walk by a table and I’ll hear things like ‘hey that’s my mushroom,’ or ‘can you pass a shrimp,’ or ‘have you tried this sauce?’ It’s a really great social night out.”
Ugh. This is baaaaad Food Network crap. It’s like McDonalds, without the french fries. I have the TV on mute and I’m going to go pack the kitchen.
