The problem is that the FN caters to the Emeril heads it always has. So you are going to continue to have crap. Alton Brown is actually entertaining and I think it is important to show why ingredients react together. There are a lot of chefs and home cooks out there that do not have a basic foundation on cooking chemistry. He can be annoying but it's actually knowledge. As for everything else some good some bad. I just like to heckle while watching it so who is the bigger loser?
