Phantom Gourmet

I never before have watched an episode of Phantom Gourmet, but I did for the first time last night. (It was kind of ironic: I was doing an intense hill progam on my exerice bike -- it's been WAY too cold to run -- while watching the PG show on pigging out while watching the Super Bowl.) It struck me as an hour-long commercial. Is that the way it usually is, or was this just their Super Bowl special? Does any chowhound really care what this guy has to say about food?

    1. I watch it occasionally simply because I love hearing about food-but I dont put any stock in his opinions.

      It is always an hour long that makes me incredibly hungry every time I see it :-)

        1. Take it seriously? No way, but you occasionally pick up a useful bit of info and the show can be entertaining.

          1. I enjoy it. I think of it as my dirty secret. It's like people who insist they do not watch TV because it's beneath them. Or reality shows. Nothing wrong with mindless entertainment.
