The Best of “Eats” The Worst of “Eats”
After asking me if W is my wife (no) and if that’s my house (no) and is that really my sister (are you kidding?), the question I’m asked most is: what’s your favorite Good Eats episode? The next question is almost always: what’s your least favorite Good Eats episode. I usually stand slack-jawed until the inquisitor gives up and walks away.
Then the other day I started wondering…what are my favorite episodes? And which ones just plain stink, stank, stunk?
To answer this I first had to find an actual list of all the Good Eats episodes. Since I don’t actually have one, I did what any sane, informed person would do and logged into Mike Menninger’s super-fine Good Eats site which not only lists all the episodes alphabetically but by season as well. I decided to choose a favorite and a least favorite from each season. It was tough because…well, they’re all my kids if you know what I mean, but here’s where I stand….
Love: The Dough Also Rises
Not so much: Use Your Noodle
Love: True Brew
Not so much: For Whom The Cheese Melts
Love: Flap Jack Do It Again
Not so much: Mission Poachable
Love: Bulb Of The Night
Not so much: Fry Hard II
Love: Crepe Expectations
Not so much: Scrap Iron Chef
Love: Good Milk Gone Bad
Not so much: Strawberry Sky
Specials: I love them Both but I have to say that as a film maker, Down And Out In Paradise is the most fun I’ve ever had.
