This dish leaves a bitter aftertaste.

The core members of YouTube's wildly popular Epic Mealtime finally make the leap to TV, sporting a shiny new headquarters and tricked out hambulance. Much of what went into the original YouTube series remains intact, while cutaway dialogues and episodic adventures make up the rest of the show.

Just like the web show, "Epic Meal Empire" is highly entertaining, due in large part to the naturally funny and charismatic Harley Morenstein. Everyone looks like they're genuinely having fun and, needless to say, the food looks awesome.

That being said, there is a deeply uncomfortable underside to this show: the unapologetic celebration of gluttony. As funny as Harley & Co.'s antics can be at times, the main draw has really been the shock value of seeing what monstrosity of fat and sugar gets made and how much of it can be eaten in one sitting.

According to the World Health Organisation, some ~30% of the adult population in the United States are obese, with childhood obesity on the forefront of global health crises in the 21st Century. Many leading health centres around the globe routinely describe obesity as an epidemic, a word traditionally reserved for large scale pathological disasters, like bird flu.

Of course, it's reality TV. "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo", "Man vs. Food", "Big Brother", they all have one theme central to their business model: exploitation. These shows are highly lucrative because they peddle a product more closely related in both consumption and enjoyment to junk food than to entertainment.

It's up to you, the viewer, to depart from this trend.

tl;dr = Fine as a guilty pleasure, but go watch Gordon Ramsey's "MasterChef", at least you'll learn something.
