Diners, Drive Ins and Dives

So Mrs. Sippi and I watch this show every week and rather enjoy it. We find Guy a much nicer change from the Rachel Ray's of the world.
So as we watched last night, MS asked me what the Chowhounders think of Guy and his show.
So, what do "All y'all" think???
I think Guy is the absolute perfect host for the show! I loved him on America's Next Food Network Star - he just got it! He knew what to do - how to be fancy and yet create dishes the home chef could take on as well has how to be different yet not scare people away! Also I really appreciate a good dive! Back in my broke NYC days I was always looking for a good diner or dive, so I especially appreciate the show! Also I feel like it's a very good mix of places - traditional diners as well as new takes on the concept! Really enjoy it!
This is the best show on TFN. They've done a great job of finding really unique places with a lot of personality, and I think Guy is a perfect host for this show - he's completely natural and interacts really well with the staff and customers at the places he visits.
I did not much care for Guy on either the Next Foodt Network Star or Guy's Big Bite. His personality is a bit too much for me---too much hair gel, bleach, and jewelry. However, I really like the new show. He seems much more comfortable and is much more engaging in it than the other shows. Besides, I love me some comfort food and the restaurants featured are pretty much just that!

I like the show.
He can be a bit over the top, but it is preferable than some soulless suit doing product placement episodes.
I travel a lot and have tried to eat at as many of his reviewed restaurants when possible. We still have great road food, if you are willing to look.
