Jamie Oliver preaching healthy eating. It lasted two 6-episode seasons. As a TV show, it had its moments. I would definitely watch this more than any of those weight loss show.
In the first season, he's going to the most obese town in America to confront bad eating habits. In the second one, he's back in L.A. to confront unhealthy eating there. He's always shocked, and sometimes his demonstrations are hokey.
The ratings were low. His effects on the people he helped is undeniable, but the longterm effects he had on the wider public was questionable at best.... until...
Political forces started to confront the so-called pink Slime. How much was it due to his show's demonstration is questionable. But at least he opened my eyes.
