Sodom & Gomorrah Rolled Into One: Welcome to Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives
20 October 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Firstly, Guy Fieri looks like he walked into an AXE commercial and decided to live inside of it. Seeing him alongside normal human beings is jarring. It's kind of like seeing a clown at a funeral. Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives does a fine job of displaying the restaurants but the insufferable host and editing make it a chore to have on in the background, let alone actually watch. The best thing to come out of the show is watching Guy get flat-out ignored when he makes a joke. It's rare for a host to consistently fall so flat on his face but Fieri's unintentional talent for schadenfreude manages to keep the show above an unwatchable level.

Watching the show also reveals how shockingly little Guy knows about cooking. Keep in mind that, at the time of writing, he has 5 restaurants currently open. It's testament to Fieri's skill (or lack thereof) that every single time he opens his mouth to guess an ingredient used in a dish or even suggest one, he gets shut down. As it turns out, you should not add melted cheese to literally everything no matter how often Fieri suggests it. And whatever you do, don't try to deep fry everything. Nothing Fieri advocates so fiercely could possibly be any good.

The New York Times called this show a "carefully engineered reality show" which is a claim I'd agree with as it does feel incredibly fake and forced but generally a reality show does a better job at not making a fool out of its host. I suppose there isn't any amount of manipulative editing that could make Fieri not seem like a bumbling buffoon.
