The best cooking show ever
17 May 2004 | by (The Twilight Zone) – See all my reviews

I can tell that I like this cooking show simply by the camera angles: Instead of panning behind counters, the camera goes all over the place. Alton Brown has a terrific sense of humor and always shows you exactly how to make a recipe. He seems like a normal everyday guy, and that's why I like him. The recipes are also always nice and seemingly good. In many cooking shows you just get some lame recipes for "slow roasted beef in wine sauce", but here you get French toast/vinaigrette/etc. Alton also shows you what tools to buy and for what reasons. Some people say the show is irritating; I don't find it irritating at all. What about you? This show is always original. Long live Good Eats!
