Top Chef is amazing, but I totally missed this season. Is there an easy way to catch up or do I need to find a marathon?

so....Glee....

25 years olds walk around a High School hallway talking about proms and classes and crap and then every 10 minutes, the whole school breaks out in song...?

is that an accurate description of just about every episode?

sorry mate, On Demand has some of the later episodes not from the start of the season.  I'm sure online.  Or if you go to Bravo's website and look at the listings, you'll be in a good shape.

No chefs that I absolutely love this year, but the good thing is there aren't too many who I completely despise.

Watching Secrets of a Restaurant Chef before heading to the Caps game. I think Anne Burrell is freakin' high. She must have used the phrase loosey goosey like 200 times and she is talking to the food.

Yeah. It was pretty awesome. Slow like usual but the last minutes redeemed my hope.

:blah:

The end was definitely interesting but I disagree with people always complaining about the show moving too slowly.  I can understand people feeling that way but really what do you expect?  It's a TV show about the zombie apocalypse, not a movie.  Every single minute can't be action-packed.  Even zombie movies aren't like that and they're only ~2 hours.

Then again I rarely complain about movies being too long, so I guess it's just a personal thing.

Sorry, I gave up after the first season when it became a Dodge(?) commercial.  I'm a big fan of the source material but the show, from what I saw watching the complete first season and part of the second, has been disappointing.

I thought the first season was great. I was just a bit disappointed with the first half of this season since it seemed to follow a plot that didn't really go anywhere (aside from the first two episodes). Hopefully this sparks it up again.

Tonight's the start of Top Gear US season 3 (I'm going to catch the replay at 1 am).  Description:  the cast has to drive big rigs with minimal training through a series of challenges with precious and dangerous cargo.

:smh: nothing at all like when Jezza, Hamster, and Captain Slow drive lorries in challenges with James having a wedding cake, hamster a car, and Clarkson some straw.... With running space heaters on the other end of the van.  I'm sure no one's rig will catch on fire in the US version like happened to Jeremy.

C'mon, I like that there is a Top Gear US, but damn, more original challenges and less repeats of stuff they did in the UK.  We've already had a repeat of the "super cheap used car" episode, complete with a copy of the forensic analysis segment.

Put prized possession behind trailer on hill!
Other presenters break it when guy does good on hill!
Lie about them drifting back!
Presenter hits parked car on turn in road test!

They copied so much!  It was great the first time.  I guess if you've never seen the original it would be cool.  But it's not as good.  They don't have funny accents :?

I saw yesterday that CBS is doing a version of 'Sherlock' so close to the BBC 'Sherlock' - they even hired an actor who's worked opposite BBC's Sherlock on stage - that the BBC is seriously considering filing a lawsuit.
