          It was good. I'm pretty tired from all the time travel though.

          Although it went way too fast (for those wanting to really absorb some of the technical techniques/info; thank heavens for rewind) I found the first 3 segments really interesting and lively. One thing that frustrates the heck out of me is that I have not been able to find out who WROTE it. It did not list writers in the credits (that i could see) and it isn't on IMDB yet. Does anyone know? The writers are also not mentioned in the NYTimes article or others I found through google. thx much.

              Thanks alot for the tip off- this sounds like a great series and I also enjoyed the first couple of episodes quite a bit. It's somewhat timely after reading about the popular ramen place in Cambridge Yume Wo Katare in another thread (where I just crushed a bowl after a 30 minute wait).

              The harvard lecture materials are available on:

              Finally, just wanted to add that you can catch episodes and previews online anytime at:
              You can buy DVDs of each episode, but I'm really sad that I can't just subscribe via iTunes or another digital service like that (which I'd happily pay for instead of streaming off their site).

              Looking forward to the next episode...

            I have only watched the ramen episode, which made me crave ramen and I don't think that craving is going to be squelched anytime soon. It was serious food porn. and who doesn't love david chang. I cant wait to watch the other episodes.

              The ramen episode was awesome. I thought the ramen gnocchi was the coolest thing in the whole episode.
