I've also started another list for food related tv shows / episodes: Best (TV) Food Documentaries
Note: The top 7 are sorted by my personal favorites; the rest are sorted by their (current) rating and popularity. Titles with less than ~100 votes are at the end of the list.
Enjoy! ♥ ;)
Note: the shows below all contain cliffhangers, so I'd recommend watching a season at a time, or even waiting until the whole series has ended (such as with Lost).
p.s. These are listed in priority order. For the sake of your manhood, get started.
grouped by sport: football, baseball, basketball, hockey, soccer, boxing, martial arts, wrestling, track & field, misc

Take a second to let me know if this list has helped you (or what you think of it), and please share any other food documentaries you've come across!
Note: The top one is the only one I have personally seen (and only the first episode so far). The rest are sorted by their (current) rating.
Enjoy! ♥ ;)
- doesn't matter how many times I see these, I never get sick of them
- including a few at the end that I watched religiously as a kid, but would absolutely still watch again
Jungle Gold (2012)
Poor characters, poor situation, poor production value.
Can't root for the main guys cause: (1) they remind you of the overgrown meatheads that bullied people in highschool, and (2) they were previously millionaires who lost their money in something that was overvalued in the first place. Now they try to the same thing again, in a dangerous third world country. George especially bothers me, as his arrogance and anger may someday leave his children fatherless.
I tried to feel bad for the wives being left behind and in debt, but they're the ones that chose to marry these knuckleheads in the first place. From the looks of it, they probably met at the gym. The only ones you can feel for at all are the kids.
I saw only the pilot, but that was enough for me. Even though gold mining is very interesting to me, this did nothing to satisfy. I'll stick with waiting for the next episode of Gold Rush Alaska. If you haven't seen "The Jungle" special that was done for that show, its well worth the watch. Maybe someday that show and their team of 50 crew will produce a quality program about mining in the jungle.
