Marcel Vigneron getting a cooking show on the SyFy channel?

Appears so, looking to start in March this year. Could be interesting, for sure. Will you watch? What do you hope to see?

    I'm in for a couple of reasons. Just like with Blais, I'm interested in seeing if he can make his spin on MG interesting.

    Even more, though, I'm interested in seeing how he comes across when he has some say in the editing, as opposed to the elves. He's always said he got a bad edit, this show should be revealing.

      Yes, I just love those new weekend creature features!

        BTW, I watched the interview clips SyFy has posted to pimp the show. It's not looking good...

          Why do you say that, Pylon?

            Did you watch them? He doesn't come off as polished or charismatic in the video. There's a lot of "like" "you know" "right" "I mean" interjections. Might be better in a scripted, edited format, but the interview video didn't help. And I'd think the network would be more careful with his image right now.

              Maybe they should just let him to the show in his "rap talk".

                If he does do the show in his rap talk, I say they call the show "Cookin it real with MC Foam"
